Infinite F to Make Korean Debut Written by Amy L On November 27, 2014

Infinite F will be making their Korean debut on December 2!

The sub-unit will release a single album entitled Blue, consisting of three songs. The title track “Heartbeat” and “My Girl” have been recycled from the group’s Japanese release, and the former is also featured as part of the drama Hi! School Love On‘s OST
