Kpop Music Mondays: Teen Top “Supa Luv”

Teen Top time! We saw them live a while ago for the Asia Song Festival, but that was back when we didn’t know anything about them. And now they’ve come out with a new song and video, and new hair, and new…creepy guy.

Now, the creepy guy isn’t a member of the band, fortunately, but he’s definitely displaying pedobear tendencies. Seriously now: we know that Teen Top’s management probably didn’t mean it this way, but the older man in the video is exceptionally unsettling. He walks around in his robe, starts a program that gets teenaged boys dancing on his TV, and then the next scene is of the creepy old guy IN A SHOWER! Seriously! What the hell was the point of showing that guy taking a shower in the video? If he’s to Teen Top what Charlie is to Charlie’s Angels, in that he’s funding their secret agent stuff, then what purpose does the shower scene serve? Why now show him at his computer more, making more phone calls, writing something down? Instead, he’s leering out of the shower like a Pervertosaurus Rex, and we can’t help but be disturbed by it.

Pedobear Shower

It also doesn’t help that Teen Top’s name has been confused as being…inappropriate material, and then their YouTube video channel is called Teenz on Top. Come on now! If someone told you there was a video channel called Teens on Top what’s the first thing you’d think about! Come on!

Plus, I dunno, the video just has lots of weird things happening in it. The guy’s computer is high tech and whatnot, since he can type in the air, so then why does it look like it’s displaying a DOS version of Minesweeper? And why does one of the members of the band do a flip on the subway platform? When I miss the train, I don’t run and flip. I just stand. Or I run somewhere else, but never flip while running.

Ah…that’s just weird. The song’s catchy, though. Suuuupa Love! It’s just a shame that the video is so terribly done, because the song’s really quite catchy. Anyhow, as always, JB and Annie from [닉쑤] Enjoy Your Happy Life~* for the Korean subs. Huzzah! Also, if you like the song as much as we do, you can buy the Teen Top Album here, and have it shipped to you anywhere in the world :D

    If Rain was in my kitchen…I wouldn't be complaining. I'm going for TeenTop to win this one.
    I'm minorly disappointed that you didn't point out the "I'm-giving-birth-to-a-baby-Oh-Oh-oh-Oh-Oh-oh" dance in the bridge.
    (When you said the girl is in the tunnel….and the first person shown was Chunji….who kinda could be the chick from Sungkyunkwan Scandal….well….this says it all :http://displacedkorean.blogspot.com/2011/01/supa-luvin-teen-top.html)

  6. I so died laughing lol. Simon doing the sprinkler lol. I had to watch the video to see for myself and yes it is so freakin creepy with the guy. Who is he supposed to be? Like a super spy or something who hires under age boys to dance and go find underage girls he's in love with? Yeah this video is pretty freaking creepy. I'm surprised it hasn't been banned yet in Korea. Having said all that I do love the song and it's fun and cute and Teen Top are too adorable.

  9. Lol @ the whole pedobear thing :D It IS creepy, everything else aside, though you can also watch it from the sunbae/hoobae point of view, but I mean, there are people who dunno anything about the concept and just watch the video, and… well yes. I was glad to have the shower scene in there, though, because, well… eyecandy. I mean, Teen Top don't count as eyecandy because they're, like, kids.
    On the other hand, one of the biggest reasons Eric Mun was in the video is that I'm quite sure I wasn't the only person who only watched the whole thing BECAUSE I knew Eric was in it… Shinhwa's fanbase is kinda huge and since they are kind of considered as an older generation, it was a perfect move to draw their attention to these rookies who might not catch that much attention from them otherwise. And after seeing this one, I'm also sure I wasn't the only one admitting that these young boys have some potential.
    He could've worn more clothes, we'd have watched it anyways, though:) I hope the Shinhwa fans won't go hard on you guys because you do have a point, (if some of them do, I apologize on their behalf, you know how hot-headed we can get if we think someone is insulting our idols) and if you have some free time, dig deeper into the kpop history – HOT, g.o.d, Shinhwa, Fin.K.L. Sechs Kies and the others, it's quite worth it. Shinhwa are legends for a reason, and they should be coming back after military soon ;))
    And also, one more vote for Eric in being creepy. (a sexy creeper but still.)

  10. Mr P is creepier.
    I love Rain so much ! So…i can't vote for him :P

  11. I vote for rain, not just the kitchen, but I find the dance scene rather disturbing. It suppose to be some kind of romantic-ballad song but the dance seems didn't match the song

  13. Hmm,…I think Mr. P Is the creepiest,…I mean really >.> Teen Top is so jail bait and he's like 15 years older than them or something *shudders* and IN A SHOWER! Where the heck is protective services in Korea? *sigh* And besides if Rain danced for my mom she'd just beat him up or I'd take her place >.>

  14. Please make a review for GD&TOP's Baby Good Night.

  15. *shiver* I think I'd be rooting for my mom if Rain was laying down those snake-like humpy moves…the pedo thing is far more disturbing….faaar more

    Thank for doing Supa Love though!!

    What about Jung Min Park's 'Not Alone'?!! It's a pretty good song…I'm finding myself rather hooked*!~

  17. Hello. I am a Shinhwa fan and especially a fan of our leader – Eric – who you just called creepy and made him out to be some weird person. First off, I'd have to say that it's apparent you haven't done some research on who this guy is, what he does, and why he has even made an appearance on Teen Top's MV of "Supa Luv." I don't like who you portray him in a negative light when you clearly don't even know who this person is. There are plenty of people watching your videos who don't even know him as well and you are basically putting out bad publicity on this AMAZING guy. Very unprofessional and it irritates me that your reviews are based on such literal meanings of the videos that you don't even attempt to get at cultural differences which is at the core of understanding other people's culture and language. Please go do some research before you anger more SHINHWA CHANGJO fans about this.

      Eric was there to show support for Andy who is in the army. I understand this. In the CONTEXT of this MV though he does come across in a way that could be misunderstood. EYK always pick out the most bizarre/interesting sides of music videos and I think its understood that they exaggerate it. Let's add to this that they were making fun of Eric's CHARACTER in the MV, I mean I doubt Eric is actually a super spy (although you never know…), I'd say we need to step back and realize that this is not a serious slam on Eric, nor Shinhwa. I'm sure he would be laughing about it too.
      Best Regards,
      A fan of Andy

  18. For some reason I pick Rain. He's like. . one of the hottest man alive. . but still . . in my opinion. . IT'S TOTALLY NOT SEXY ANYMORE! Or. . too much. .

  19. The last scene made me think of this t-shirt that my friend has…. the front says "Have you seen my zombie??". Then you flip it over your head and RWAAARR ZOMBIE FACE :p

    And, i'm gonna vote pedobear… i'd kind of be happy for my mom if Rain danced all up on her, even if it's a "tad" awkward.

  23. Creeper Bear is creeper!! My vote's for Mr. P in the shower. I can tolerate Rain singing for my mom in my kitchen…I could just pretend it was for me *le sigh*

    Another awesome vid, guys!

  24. hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
    Simon-sshi you were great at the end. :)))

    Hmm…. I find creepier that Ms. P in the bathroom…. watching teenages boys dancing… :|
    But oohhh Rain dancing in the kitchen for my mum? Nooo………….
    But I vote for Ms. P because I don`t find it that normal.. what he`s doing.
    As someone said Ms. P is Eric Mun from Shinhwa. :D

    I liked how Martina-sshi expressed her thoughts about Mr. P. "Oh yeah he`s taking a shower. Yeah!" :))))

  25. i didn't mind neither Eric in the shower or Rain in the kitchen, but if i had to choose a creepier one it would probably be Rain, just because even though my mom wouldn't mind a half naked guy dancing in front of her, she's not attracted to asians, but i am, so if he does it to me, i would be happy.

    5 years ago
  26. Lol, considering that my Mom is watching this video with me and is about as obsessed with Kpop as I am I'm gonna go with Pedobear in the shower…
    Speaking of, Mr.P? He's Eric Mun from the Old-School boy band named ShinHwa– They're actually still around it's just that some of them are in the military right now. He just got out, but his fellow band mate, who owns Teen Top's company, is in the military right now–So I guess you could say he's filling in ^^ Plus, Eric Mun shirtless and in a shower is never a bad thing… even if you're not a noona
    I agree that this video is creepy though. But mostly I thought It was creepy that they're stalking what appears to be 12-year old girl. I mean, I know they had to find someone younger than Ricky and ChangJo… but they still could have found someone who looks 15.
    Ahhh yes, I long for the day that Kpop companies realize that there are people who actually speak English listening to the songs. What's worse, L.Joe actually is from the US!! They could have asked him!!!

  27. Hello Simon Do you remember Sang-il middle school? I'm so glad to meet you on YouTube. I will graduate school this week, and go to high school. I can say "thank you" now you taught me english(not perfect) and played with me and friends. 잘맞는지 모르겠네요. 사이몬 안녕 건강하게 사세요

  28. OMG Simon as Rain XD and he just loves JYj "Aaay girl", huh? Omg creepy Mr P…sad for seungri, I think MR P WINS against Rain, that would be ackward but not creepy

  29. But I want Rain to sing Love song to meeeee! … but to my mother? That would be… so so so SO wrong!
    I vote Rain, even though I love you raaaaain! XD

    5 years ago
  30. Ah. Ah. I can't choose between Eric and Rain. Probably Rain, his video was creepy about him going around after his ex-lover and taking off his shirt, even tho I just loved him going half naked. Oh yeah. Half naked Rain. *goes off to wonderland*

    Even both situations would be creepy, my undying love for both of them stays :D

    I also like the song, it's catchy, the dance looks a bit… weird. And I personally don't like the hairstyles that much, some of them look creepy in them.

    I enjoyed this video!

  31. Rain's "Love Song" is far far more creepy than Mr P! Something about that video is just off, it gives me the chills :P

    5 years ago
  32. So sad, that Eric Mun's first comeback after the army is as a pedocreeper in this vid lol…For those who don't know and also cuz Martina asked…the creepy bathrobe guy is the leader of Shinhwa, which is supposedly the longest running boy band in S.K. (they've been around for like over ten years)…so to teentop, he would be like an idol, and he is kinda hot so it doesn't hurt to throw him in there, though the placement of him in this vid was a definitely off.

  33. "how that sound" sounds kind of ghetto talk. Maybe that's what they were going for though. Who really knows. Teenz on Top. LOL
    I'm voting for Rain solely for that ridiculous dance.

    5 years ago
  34. Ah Martina! You sound so bitter! But Rain wins this one…..singing…to love song…in the kitchen (where I eat) to my mother….creepy. And with those super creepy eyelashes of doom! Rain wins. All the way Rain. Still love you Rain, but not when you're singing to my mother…in the kitchen…where I eat.
    But Eric :D haha ok its creepy that Eric is the one watching them but…its Eric. Oh Eric…you should have done something else after coming back from the army not this.
    Either review before the dawn or GD&TOP's Baby Goodnight. (I will continue to ask for that one until it gets reviewed)

  35. I guess you guys didn't like TT xD
    it must be because I'm maknae-perverted but I reallly liked the song and the dance, kkk. But I believe the MV had some shortcomings… ;)

    What's more, I must be the creepy type, cause I realy love both Supa Love and Rain's Love Song xD Hard to choose one, but I think it'll be good to let Rain win once more before his military service :P so I vote for Rain.

    5 years ago
  36. Ahaha, this was epic! Showering guy in video…. creepy. But then that guy happens to be a naked Eric in the shower, which makes it a bit more relevant. Very nostalgic. But v. CREEPY comeback for the guy who just got out of the army! All this talk about army-guys digging the girl-groups is just a lie? Suddenly they're all over the boy-groups? CREEPY! Anyway, Rain singing love songs to my mother is still creepier. I mean, if it was for me, he could sing them anywhere…. but to my mother? In the kitchen? You go Rain…. much creepier than Eric by far yet.

  37. ommo…. just like what I thought about the MV and now you've said it out loud!! -LOL-
    Hopefully you can review Infinite's Before the Dawn later XD

  38. What!? I thought Eric was inserted in that video for the noonas! (My vote is Mr. P… love Rain, too.)

    Also, THANK YOU for the inappropriate name thing. I feel like there's only a few of us out there that feel that way. I like the band, hate the name.

    • Another thing we didn't mention about the name: isn't it destined to fail? They're not gonna be teens forever? What happens when they become 20? Do they call themselves Adults on Top?

      5 years ago
  39. YAY!!! I love this song!
    Also, Rain singing "Love Song" in the kitchen to my mother is far creepier than Eric.. xD
