TEEN TOP proves to be a favorite idol group amongst today’s hottest female Hallyu stars

Boy group TEEN TOP seems to be the favorite idol group amongst today’s hottest female Hallyu stars.

It all started last year when singer Lee Hyori completed a photo shoot with TEEN TOP last year, and selected the boys as the idol group she would like as a younger partner.

Wonder Girls member Sohee sang praises for the boys saying, I am most interested in seeing the stage performances of TEEN TOP, while the members of miss A admitted that they were also fans, even suggesting a possible joint performance.

T-ara‘s Hyomin went as far as to admit that she thought member Niel was cute, stirring interest from fans and netizens everywhere.

And most recently, legendary singer Uhm Jung Hwa admitted on SBS Power FMChoi Hwa Jung’s Power Time‘ on February 9th, I like TEEN TOP. I think they are really cute these days.”

Block B’s Gorilla Dance Version a Blockbuster Hit

Block B recently released a Gorilla Dance version for their song “Nanrina“.

After releasing their mini-album “Welcome to the Block” on February 2, the Gorilla Dance move featured in their title track “Nanrina” music video has quickly become the talk of the town.

The dance move and the attire that instantly hints at a gorilla has been gaining popularity even amongst elementary students.  It took a few months of modifications before the seven member group completed their gorilla dance to its current perfection.

BNS Entertainment states, “As the Hallyu Wave rises in popularity, fans making dance covers are popular, not just within Korea, but abroad as well.  It’s standard for a dance cover group to form as the singers rise in popularity.  As such, the requests from fans for a dance version of the music video is off the hook.  In response, we have prepared a dance version video for the fans to practice the gorilla dance.”
