The boy group TEEN TOP will tour major arenas in Japan next year, surprising fans with the announcement because it has not made an official debut in Japan.
TEEN TOP has had a fan club in Japan since it made its debut in Korea in 2010, which rarely happens among K-pop groups, but the band has been visiting the country to meet with members of its fan club every year since.
The group will go to Nagoya first for a performance on Feb. 5 and will move to Yokohama for a two-day concert from Feb. 8.
The tour will continue in Osaka on Feb. 13 and will end in Fukuoka on Feb. 18.
The group's agency said that the tour will make the group more recognizable in Japan. They also said that the group members have been working well there.
