TEEN TOP fans (aka Angels) have been busy spreading the news of L.Joe‘s newly created Twitter account, urging fellow fans to follow him. Now they have another Twitter account to spread the word about, Chunji‘s! Not long after L.Joe had opened his account, fellow member Chunji also joined the ‘Twitterverse‘.
Like L.joe, Chunji wanted to authenticate his Twitter, and what a better way to do so than posting a proof shot? He included a caption translating to: “Everyone…I started using Twitter … I don’t know much so I hope you help me ♥”.

It seems that Chunji may have already gotten used to Twitter as he had not missed the chance to hashtag “#긴생머리그녀“, TEEN TOP’s latest song. He has also seen to be interacting with member L.joe and label mate 100%‘s Minwoo.
Are you following Chunji yet? You can do so here.
