Former INFINITE member Hoya makes his first variety show appearance on the December 6th airing of MBC's 'Radio Star' since his departure from Woollim Entertainment. His introduction to the hosts of the show already marks a change as he introduced himself by his legal name 'Lee Ho Won', not by 'Hoya'. He goes on to say, "I think it's my first time introducing myself (as Lee Ho Won) on 'Radio Star'. Hoya was just a nickname that I was called by since I was little." He brought on the topic of his departure from INFINITE when he added, "It's not been very long since I started promoting alone." This prompted the hosts of the show to ask if the other members tried to get him to stay. He responded, "No matter if they tried to hold onto me or not, I've made the decision because the direction I wanted to go was different from my agency. And my contract happened to come to an end around that period so I came to leave."
