Teen Top For MTV?

Read this cause I can’t believe it myself….

Boy band Teen Top will star on one of MTV USA’s upcoming shows this coming fall, making it the first time an idol group from Korea will be featured on American television.

Teen Top’s agency T.O.P Media on Tuesday said that a program called “Vice Guide to Everything,” about how the boys train to become idol singers, will air on the music channel starting September.

For three months starting January, MTV USA had searched all of Asia for idols who have yet to make a debut, basing their research on how much musical talent and star quality they have, as well as reviewing the training system they would undergo.

A producer from MTV USA flew into Korea in April, shooting the process of how the boy band undergoes training in dancing, singing, a second language, miming, mannerisms and doing interviews.

“Neal, who is the lead vocalist, has the tone of a young Michael Jackson. They are fit to compete in markets overseas too because the English skills of one of their members is at the level of a native speaker,” said a MTV associate who interacted directly with the boys on the show.

Teen Top, a six-member group, have backgrounds as child actors and were chosen through auditions at major theme park Lotte World.

MTV this will be a first to showcase Asian artist. I’ve seen European and African native artist but no Asian. Unless your talking about Head Bangers ball MTV2 with X-Japan and Dir en Gray being the only Asian artists to be feature here in the states. I can’t wait to see what other idol have been chosen and which Korean label is willing to go the distance?

Rock Your vote if Teen Top is Best New Blood
