Transformation Into Perfect Men! “Pure 100%” TEEN TOP at a Glance

After being rated as the nation’s younger boys with “No More Perfume On You’, 4 months later they have attempted a transformation filled with masculine charms with their 2nd mini album [It’s]. We met up with TEEN TOP who have showed their own “pure 100%” color through their title track “Crazy”

Brave Brothers produced the 2nd mini album. We’ve heard that he’s extremely scary when working so how was it working with him?

Although we had a scary first impression of him but he’s benevolent. He’s only scary when we enter the recording studio (C.A.P) Then who’s the member who got scolded the most? L.Joe! (TEEN TOP) The point of ‘Crazy’ is the rap. So he got scolded a lot (Niel) Every time when we’re recording I was really nervous (L.Joe)

Looking at the mini album this time round the skills of the rappers L.Joe and C.A.P has really improved a lot. And Niel tried to rap in “Where’s ma girl”?
