On June 12th, Andy, TEEN TOP, and the members of 100% held their production conference for their new joint SBS MTV show, ‘TEEN TOP’s Rising! 100% – Issue and War‘.
Andy revealed, “The members of 100% joined the company as trainees before TEEN TOP but TEEN TOP ended up debuting first. I feel that it was because of right timing that we have TEEN TOP and 100% where they are. Like Shinhwa, I hope that 100% will be a group that lives a long career.”
Comprised of Minwoo, Rokhyun, Jonghwan, Hyukjin, Chanyong, Sanghoon, and Changbum, the group is preparing for an August debut with a unique and powerful performance style that focuses on their vocals. Their debut variety show will show the boys undergoing various missions as they strive to make a name in the industry ahead of their debut.
When asked how they’ll be going about the program, TEEN TOP responded, “If we fail, the opportunity goes to 100%. Whether or not they’re our juniors, we’re more focused on getting our own names out there. We have to reach the top ourselves so we don’t have the luxury of turning around to look back.”
100% responded, “The TEEN TOP seniors work so hard so we’re not sure if the opportunities will come to us but we’re also preparing just as hard right now.”
