Korea has yet another boy band in the works and ready to debut. Six-member group, Teen Top will be featured on one of MTV USA’s upcoming shows this September, making it the first time a Korean idol group will be on American television.
Teen Top’s company T.O.P Media said that the show will be called “Vice Guide to Everything,” which will show how the boys train to become singers.
For three months since this past January, MTV USA searched all over Asia for idols who have yet debuted, basing their criteria on musical talent and star quality as well as reviewing the training system they would undergo. This past April, MTV USA flew to Korea to shoot the process of how the boy band trained in dancing, singing, learning another language and conducting interviews.
The original plan was to show how an idol group prepares for debut, but in the end decided to show the boys upon the time of their actual debut as well.
A MTV associate also claimed that, “Neal, who is the lead vocalist, has the tone of a young Michael Jackson. They are fit to compete in markets overseas too because the English skills of one of their members is at the level of a native speaker.”
Teen Top will make their official debut at the end of June.
