If you’re sighing of frustration, expecting to see another typical new K-pop boy group waiting to “blow your mind”, I assure you that this one will not be your average one.
This new group will be named Teen Top, and will be consisted of six members chosen through various open auditions. According to reports, the group has already been approved of their talent through an upcoming program at MTV, titled Vice Guide to Everything. This show has served as a judge to decide on the group’s capabilities in music, and their possibilities of success once they officially enter the field. Vice Guide to Everything also put a spotlight on Korea’s training system on idol groups by actually visiting the country.
T.O.P. Media revealed, “This program, which introduces Teen Top for the first time, will include in-depth evaluation on the training process the boys have gone through, including dancing lessons, vocal lessons, foreign language lessons, mime lessons, and etiquette lessons. Interviews with people in charge of casting, training, producing, and marketing will also be shown in the program.”
According to T.O.P. Media, MTV’s producer Jessie Juke had much interest in Teen Top, that he has decided to visit Korea once again to film the group’s activities once they debut. His initial intentions were to only capture the group’s systematic preparation process in prior to debut.
Vice Guide to Everything will begin its promotions U.S.wide starting this summer, and will be broadcast starting from August at MTV.
