on July 2011, they released their 1st full album with "Be mine"
on September of the same year, they won their first #1
a lot of broadcasting companies were amazed by them
when they won their first #1, they sold 20,000 copies in a day
because of their big sales, they were even ranked second in album sales of the whole year and this was enough to bring their popularity to the general public too.
Ever since then, Infinite's name became something of value
after that, they repackaged their full album and came out with Paradise
on October 2011, they won on Inkigayo and it was their first win on public TV
they won #1 with Be mine and won #1 again 1 month later and became the trend
after that in May 2012, they came out with "the Chaser" which is the best song with the best concept and choreography they've done yet
Infinite won everything on Mcountdown from May 31st to June 7th, and June 14th and had a triple crown
Be Mine-Paradise showed their potential with a full album
and when they came back in 2012 with infinitize, it really secured their place as a trend
what's more shocking is that they beat Gangnam style on 2012's billboard chart and arrived first with "the Chaser"
on Rolling Stones' 2015 issue, they arrived 48 on the chart of best boy groups
personally I think that Be mine- Paradise -The chaser were infinite's best comebacks
