Teen Top is heavily preparing for their European Tour starting in Germany in February! Even though, C.A.P, Chun-Ji, L-Joe, Niel, Ricky and Chang-Jo took some time to talk with us about their upcoming concerts. Read what the six members of Teen Top had to tell us (See the detailed member information at the end of the interview)!
Kpopeurope: Hi guys, thank you for giving us an interview. We know you must be pretty busy with the preparations for your European tour. Nearly all of our readers know you already, so maybe we should start with something personal!? So, who is the boss in your group?
Teen Top: C.A.P!!!
Chang-Jo: Our leader is C.A.P and he takes care of all of us!
Kpopeurope: That must be a difficult job – so respect C.A.P. Must be on the stage as well, right? By the way, what are you guys doing just right before the concert? Do you have any rituals before a performance?
Teen Top: Yeah we know a lot of groups have their rituals but for us there is nothing special. We shout “Fighting!” and go up the stage with a lot of energy!!!
Kpopeurope: We can feel the energy already! And you will need it at your concerts all over Europe because your fans really like your music. Do you already have future plans for your music? Will you keep producing pop music or is it possible that you change the genre, or maybe one of you decides to do a solo project soon?
Teen Top: Chang-Jo: There is no concrete plan for the near future but of course we have all our own interests as well. In my case, I would like to try Hip-Hop music because I think I could do well in singing powerful songs or doing music that has a certain message.
Kpopeurope: Wow. Awesome! Guys, that sounds like there might be a lot more coming from you in the future. What about the past – what was the happiest and proudest moment in your career?
Teen Top: All together: Number 1 Hit!!! *laughing*
Chang-Jo: Yeah, that was really amazing. We were really happy when we were ranked at number one in the music charts!
L-Joe: True, I was moved by fans who were crying when we were at number one!
Niel: Of course, we all were so happy. You know, that time it was a tough time for all of us. We, our record label, all of us put so much energy and effort in the project that finally, it felt like being rewarded for all the hard work. Thanks to all, especially to our fans!
Kpopeurope: That’s so true. We all know that you are all hard working for the success. So congratulations that you did it. So beside the business, is there still some free time for meeting your friends?
Teen Top: Chang-Jo: Yes time is pretty short as you know but of course we are meeting our family and friends as often as possible.
Kpopeurope: And do you also have time for girls? Is there a favourite type?
Teen Top: We concentrate on our music first *laughter*.
Chang-Jo: I can’t speak for the others, but my ideal is a cute and charming girl who makes me feeling that I have to take care for her. *smiling*
Kpopeurope: That’s cute! I think we will have more chances to talk about that topic in the next months when you are in Europe. Btw. Have you ever been thinking about dating a foreigner? Is one of you thinking about that?
Teen Top: Chang-Jo: ME! *laugh* I mean, not especially dating foreign girls. I would just like to make a lot of new friends!
Kpopeurope: Nice nice. I think a lot of our fans like to hear that! Ah time is fast, and we nearly reached the end of our interview. Just two more questions, out of our fun-box. We are known for asking amusing questions as well 🙂
Teen Top: Go on *laugh*
Kpopeurope: So we would like to know which of you guys has the most embarrassing habit, and what is it?
Teen Top: *all together* L-Joe! *laughter*
Chang-Jo: Yes, when L-Joe falls asleep, he is sometimes starting a conversation with someone! When Chun-Ji and me heard that the first time, we were really surprised and shocked at the same time *laugh*.
Kpopeurope: Hehe, you never know who is listening 🙂 Last question! Who of you is most likely to survive in a horror movie?
Teen Top: *all together* Chang-Jo! He loves horror movies! *laughter*
Teen Top: Chang-Jo: True, it is me *again*. I love horror movies and thrillers, so I guess I could deal with dangerous situations and survive! *Fighting*
Kpopeurope: So, if we ever find ourselves in a horror movie – you are the man we should call right?
Teen Top: *laughter*
Kpopeurope: Thank you so much guys for the interview with us. I hope you have a great success in Europe! Is there a personal message that you would like to tell your fans over here?
Teen Top: Of course! As you know, it is our first venture in Europe – therefore we are really looking forward to this tour! We promise, that we do our best to be prepared as good as possible. We all want to bring you a perfect show and a wonderful performance!
Kpopeurope: Cool, your fans will be really happy to hear that! Thanks again and see you in Europe!
Teen Top: Thank you, bye bye. See you in Europe!
