[REVIEW] 2013.05.21 Teen Top, moving away from just synchronized dance, the reason why we waited for them for 3 years.. 'perfection'

Eng trans: @oursupaluv


Please do not take out

It was great watching them grow from boys. I am referring to Teen Top (C.A.P Chunji L.Joe Niel Ricky Changjo); they had held their own concert in 3 years.

On 11th and 12th at Seoul Korea University Hwajung Gymnasium, Teen Top held their first concert '2013 TEEN TOP No.1 Asia Tour in Seoul'

Their first domestic concert in 3 years

It is their first domestic concert 3 years after their debut. As compared to other idols, it is considered slightly late. But that shows how much they have prepared and we wait for their perfect performances.

The curtains were down and they bring on their title track from their 1st full-length album 'Miss Right'. The live band behind them stood out. To be honest, synchronized dance comes straight to mind when you talk about Teen Top, so I was surprised for a moment upon seeing the live band. I was suddenly reminded of what leader C.A.P spoke about during the press conference earlier – "We have prepared for a perfect performance which you will not realize how fast time flies"

Following which, they transformed 'Walk By…' and 'I Wanna Love' into musicals. They melted the venue with their sweetness in 'Baby U', 'Beautiful Girl' and 'Girlfriend'. Teen Top made the effort to go out on the extended stage to interact with fans. "Even if my body breaks apart, I will still continue dancing and singing" That seems like their plan and they started rocking the venue.

Separated yet together…. Solos, Units and Special performances

Usually each member of the group will perform solos. But as compared to having 6 solo performances, Teen Top chose to prepare 2 solos and 5 unit performances. Separated yet together, they performed a variety of genres such as ballads, R&B and traditional hip hop.

Niel, Chunji and Changjo started off as a unit with the ballad 'Hello'. Niel and C.A.P performed an R&B song, Zion's 'Two Melodies'. In particular, I could not believe that Niel is only turning 20 this year as he took over the stage with his rich vocals and great skill. Then, member C.A.P appears on stage to rap and even wittily changed the lyrics to 'one plus one equals cutie"

C.A.P L.Joe Changjo gathered for the traditional hip hop 'Mr. Bang'. L.Joe and Changjo continued hyping up the atmosphere with 'Jealousy' and a dance break. Niel Changjo L.Joe C.A.P performed 'First Kiss' and the daring 'American Dance'. Ahead of the performance, L.Joe surprised the fans and made them anxious by saying "We're going to be sexy. Prep your hearts. We're going to be real men today"

Of course that does not exclude solo performances as well. The members who were not able to contribute his vocals much in the past, start to show off their talents. Maknae Ricky sings Alex 'If You' and he showed his shyness when he said 'It's my first time after debut performing a full song by myself for the fans" Following which, Chunji took the stage with Jung Yup "How have you been" and showed his potential as a solo artiste.

Their deadly weapon – synchronized dance, they go back in time

If one were to explain Teen Top, they can't possibly leave out the synchronized dance. Even they themselves would pick synchronized dance as their deadly weapon. They performed 'Clap' and 'Supa Luv' for the first time in a while and they turned back the clock to 3 years ago. They matched their footwork with the rhythm and the fanciful laser beams were able to bring out the sharpness in their dance. Even when 3 years has passed, they're still perfectly in synced, earning their name as the "knife-like dance idols whose sharpness can be measured"

In particular, with the live band, they perform their past hit songs 'To You' and 'No More Perfume On You'. Originally a dance track, they rearranged 'No More Perfume On You' adding in a tinge of sweetness and it was healing for the soul.

The ease on stage they had learnt from the Europe Tour… 'A party-like concert'

It was time for them to sing the song for the fans 'Angel'' No one could stand between the singer and fans in a time like this. In particular when the live accompaniment was switched off, a touching event was prepared by the fans and staff. Messages from the fans congratulating them on the concert started showing and the members were truly touched. As if they were embarrassed, Chunji and Changjo couldn't looked directly at the fans when they cried.

Well-known for not showing his tears, Niel smiled cheekily "I'm really touched, it feels like the time when we won first. Because I'm really happy that's why my tears aren't flowing. I shouldn't be crying on a good day like this"

A milestone was made when the members transformed into SISTAR. They performed 'Gone Not Around Any Longer' with their entire bodies. Their sexiness and daring actions drove the fans crazy and it truly became the legend of the concert.

Following which 'Why' started and it became a party with the fans. A relaxing and enjoyable performance sees a great reaction from the delighted fans. Amidst the crazy atmosphere, L.Joe lost his shoes and he was dancing barefooted.

The last song of their energy-filled concert was 'Crazy', together with the encore tracks 'Be Ma Girl?' and 'Shake It". I thoroughly enjoyed Teen Top, even if they're moving away from synchronized dance

He'll be of legal age in a few months. You just need to hold your hormones for that long.
