At a recent press release event held in Seoul Hapjungdong Lotte Art Center, the members of TEEN TOP commented on competing against their senior groups such as Super Junior and 2PM, who have released their respective albums recently. The boys revealed that just being considered competitors to the idol seniors is a huge ‘honor.’
TEEN TOP stated, “At the beginning of our debut, we had the nickname, ‘baby beast-dols’ because of the 2PM seniors. If we are to be seen as competition for idol seniors like them, we are honored. Even the fact that we are able to perform at the same time as our idol seniors is an honor.“
The members of TEEN TOP also pledged that they will show a matured group in terms of music as well as image since all members have reached their early 20s this past year.
