Teen Top

Teen Top debuted July 9, 2010 with their cong Clap.  The band consists of six members, CAP, ChunJi, L.Joe, Niel, Ricky and ChangJo.  All the members use a stage name.  Niel and ChunJi are the main singers and as they’ve released more songs, the other members have finally been allowed to sign and showcase their talents a little more each time.  CAP and L.Joe are the rappers, though CAP raps more.  For their discography click here and go look under MV Reviews for more of my fan girly rants.

When this band came out, only one of them was legal, now they’re slowing shifting up the rungs out of jailbait, but not yet.  I fell in love with Niel because of his voice and his lips, then CAP and his wannabe intensity.  It wasn’t until their second and third music video that I started noticing ChunJi and he’s come up to rival Niel sometimes with those winks and lip touches.  I’m a hardcore Tee Top fan; so expect music video review on them whenever they release anything new.
