[Mwave Interview] Teen Top’s Niel Talks Most Used Apps and Music Recs
Teen Top’s Niel swung by the Mwave studio recently, and we sat down with the idol for a few minutes ahead of his MEET&GREET to chat about what he does in his down time and even gave us a peek at his phone!
Idols are all about flash onstage, but a quick glance at Niel’s phone revealed that off the stage, he’s a man of simple pleasures.
Take his phone′s background image for instance.
“There’s an app that lets you choose your background, and while browsing it, I thought this was the prettiest," explained Niel. "So I set it as this photo of a lighthouse shining at night.”
It also turns out that Niel likes to pass time like the rest of us – playing games.
“The app I use the most is Everybody’s Marble,” said Niel with a laugh. “I’ve been playing it a lot lately. It’s a game I started after a member hyung recommended it to me. It’s the app I’ve been enjoying and using the most.”
As he scrolled through his phone, Niel added, “I also use an app called Webtoon a lot when I’m bored or on standby.”
While the Teen Top members are no holds barred when it comes to posting embarrassing photos of one another, we were surprised to find out that Niel isn’t particularly fond of selfies.
“I don’t really enjoy taking selfies, but when the fans request it, I’ll take a photo and post it”
Finally, just as Niel’s solo effortoNIELy showcases his sensibilities apart from Teen Top, he walked us through his recently played playlist, offering a glimpse into his personal music taste.
“I’ve been listening to this song. We Know by Yang Da Il and Junkey.”
He also named Super Junior D&E’s Growing Pains and Naul’s Living in the Same Time as songs he currently has on repeat.
Be sure to check out Niel′s debut solo single Lovekiller as well!
