Ladies and gentlemen, there is a new boy band on the way. Hailing from the same company that brought you Teen Top comes the seven members of 100%, and two teasers for their debut single, “Bad Guy.”
Much like how Teen Top members Ricky and Niel were former child actors-turned K-pop idols, the boys of 100% have already gotten some pre-debut attention on the reality television show circuit via Teen Top Rising 100%. It’s a nifty trick to get a group some exposure before their debut, one that’s worked for a lot of other K-pop artists now killing it in the mainstream. Though the teasers for 100%’s debut single, “Bad Guy,” might not need any extra coverage. 100% stands alone in these teasers with sharp choreo, while showing off a tinge of their powerful vocal capabilities.

As for the look of these teasers, we hate to make this comparison, but “Bad Guy” comes off startlingly similar to “Before The Dawn,” a 2011 single from another seven-member boy group, Infinite. Since 100% also has seven members, (Minwoo, Changbum, Sanghoon, Hyukjin, Chanyong, Jongkwon and Rokhyun) and their teasers feel just as awesomely post-apocalyptic as “Before The Dawn,” we wouldn’t be surprised if 100% pulled out an Infinite-like scorpion dance move in the full MV for “Bad Guy.”
Of course, feel free to disagree in the comments section below. 100% might just surprise us all when they officially debut their single album, WE, 100%, on September 18…
