Why, you may ask? Well, because I was NOT a fan of any part of their last mini album... not even a little bit. This saddened me, because I like Teen Top. They're squish-your-cheeks cute and their music is usually catchy, with fun choreography to go along with it. They've redeemed themselves with "To You", though, so yay for them and me.
The "To You" mv comes from Teen Top's third mini album, called "Artist", which was released on May 30th.
|Come on boys... More kissing, less fighting.|
What I like: The song is, as I said before, catchy. It's no "Supa Luv" or "No More Perfume On Me", which got played out in my house, but I like it quite a bit. I'm not sure if I'll be downloading "To You" for my listening pleasure or anything but you never know, it might grow on me even more.
The choreography is cute as a button and I foresee lots of fanmade dance copy vids in the near future. I am interested to see Teen Top perform it live, especially to check out their usage of props. I'm also loving their outfits and their more grown up image. I really like the hair colors and styles that were picked this time around, except CAPs. Not cute.
What I think could have been better: The ubiquitous computerized background room, which seems to have a cameo in almost every Kpop video. At least they used cubes instead of the usual stripes.
This song is about a man that can't forget a woman he once loved. Are we to infer that the girl that's drifting through the mv, but not interacting with the boys, is the woman the song is referring to? Also, why is CAP randomly on a motorcycle? It doesn't seem to fit in with the story or the concept of the mv in any way.
|Baby blue on the side and blonde on top?? Hmm...|
To tell you the truth, even though I like this more adult version of Teen Top, I'm a little upset at Niel with all this sexy body-waving and lip biting... you noona killer you!

"To You" was produced by Brave Brothers, who also produced "Crazy", and I think they did a much better job on "To You" song. All in all, this was a great choice for first single release.
Teen Top's comeback stages start this week and I will be posting at least one on this blog for comparison. I'm crossing my fingers that they'll be awesome because you never know!
