Teen Top Sues Netizens Who Spread Rumors of Album Stockpiling


Group Teen Top has sued four netizens who spread rumors of the six-member group stockpiling their own albums.

The Seoul police told the media on November 26 that Teen Top has filed charges on October 2 against four netizens, for defamation and spreading false accusations.

Previously in September, after Teen Top won the number one place on “Show Champion” and “KBS Music Bank” with their single “Missing,” posts accusing the group of stockpiling their album “Teen Top Exito” surfaced on online communities, garnering attention.

The netizens were particularly insistent on Teen Top’s stockpiling of their own albums, resulting in numerous Teen Top fans posting pictures of their purchased albums to prove that the group did not buy back their own albums.

1. [+1,213, -170] But are the accusations really false

2. [+1,114, -162] They've had sajaegi accusations not only once but every single comeback. Instead of thinking to properly clarify it once and fo rall, they're filing lawsuits..

3. [+902, -140] Sounds like the company's making this all up... in the music industry nowadays, everything's made up as a part of marketing

4. [+757, -33] They better follow up with results if they're going to sue

5. [+662, -126] So it wasn't true??? There was so much accusations going around, I thought it was true;;;

6. [+165, -37] Shouldn't they be showing proof that they didn't do sajaegi before going through with lawsuits

7. [+137, -40] Weren't their sajaegi accusations undeniable? An idol group that can barely sell 100 copies in a group order somehow sold 5,000 copies in under an hour?

8. [+112, -21] Why are they filing this lawsuit now? Those accusations are so old, they could've caught them already if they wanted to..

9. [+101, -40] I bet those netizens are 2PM fans ㅋㅋㅋ

didn't listen to the full thing yet but I love the track with Elo!
side-eyeing the beginning of Act Serious. if that's really what it sounds like then...

edit: Growing Up is perfect. the whole thing is pretty great except for track two.
it briefly samples the Allah Akbar in the beginning. so unnecessary and disappointing.
