Teen Top’s Arena Tour Takes Japan’s Breath Away
After making its debut in 2010 as one of the youngest boy groups in Korea, Teen Top has come a long way, becoming one of the representative performance groups in and out of Korea.
The six member group recently finished its arena tour in Japan, held between February 3 through 18, for a total of five concerts. The tour gathered a total of over 50,000 of Teen Top’s fans in the country.
On February 18, the neighborhoods around Fukuoka were mostly quiet due to heavy rain and falling temperature. But the scene looked different at Fukuoka Convention Center.
Over 10,000 fans filled every seat at the concert, warming up the city with their enthusiastic response to Teen Top, who performed over 20 songs that day.
Starting the show with Rocking, Teen Top performed its hits, including I Wanna Love, No More Perfume on You, Date, and Missing You.
The Teen Top members also brought the fans to cheer loudly by presenting solo performances. Chunji performed one of Japan’s favorite, Hikaru Utada’s First Love, Niel put on a sexy performance by singing Chris Brown’s Take You Down.
C.A.P rocked Kanye West’s Black Skinhead, L.Joe pulled off Japanese singer Orange Range’s Hana, Ricky sang Shin Seung Hoon’s I Believe and Changjo covered Usher’s Nice&Slow, showing their unique charming traits.
Considering that Teen Top’s Japanese performance gathered 1,000 at the time of its debut in 2010, having invited over 10,000 fans at the Fukuoka concert is an impressive achievement.
When Teen Top met with reporters, the group said, “We think we appealed to our fans in Japan with our unique dance movements performed in unison.”
“Once the arena tour is over, we’re going to plan for a world tour,” continued Teen Top. “Starting with Korea, we’ll be heading to China, Taiwan, America and Europe, to make our way around the globe. We will let you know once we have the schedule.”
Meanwhile, Teen Top will be holding Teen Top 2014 World Tour ′High Kick′ in Seoul on February 22 and 23 at Olympic Park’s Olympic Hall.
