INFINITEs L Reveals He Made Up His Mind About The Possibility Of Re-Signing With Woollim A Few Years Ago
INFINITEs L opened up about the possibility of extending his contract with Woollim Entertainment.
At a recent interview about his drama Ruler: Master of the Mask, he said, We are still undergoing discussions about the contract renewal. Weve only gone through the preliminary stages, and we now have to discuss the specifics. I think its going to take some time, but the answer has most likely already been decided. Im thinking in the same way as those who are thinking, Wouldnt this be a better option? Decisions can change every minute and every second, but for now, Im thinking positively.
He continued, The direction Ill be taking is definitely something I have to think about, while at the same time, saying, I already made up my mind [about the contract renewal] two or three years ago.

Even though L is a popular idol group member, he voluntarily took the stance of a rookie after beginning his acting career. In his hopes to create a new brand as an actor, he uses his real name Kim Myung Soo instead of his stage name L.
L explained, Its like Im creating [game] characters. Ive been working on the character L until now, and now Im making a new character called Kim Myung Soo. If I were to make an analogy to games, it would be like training a thief and then changing to a magician. Its fun. Its a different version of something Ive already experienced, so theres a synergy that comes from that.
