How can you go wrong with this premise for a variety show? Take the hottest male actor/singer, place him at an all women’s college, and then have him go on mini “dates” with various students.
And the best part: T.O.P is the star. You can’t get better than that!
Try and imagine what those girls felt when they found out T.O.P was visiting their school. Jackpot!
I can’t guarantee that I wouldn’t have fainted.
This visit was part of KBS2TV’s Entertainment Relay that aired on November 16.
Here’s Soompi’s article on this Guerilla Date event.
My Recap: Also be sure to check out the video at the end of this post.
TOP and the MC gear up for their adventure at Seoul Woman’s College.
TOP admitted that he was more nervous for the show than when he performs on stage. Awwwwwww.
TOP walks into a classroom and the girls expectedly spazz out. I love how everyone is covering their faces.
The MC introduces TOP and asks the class how they would best describe him. Apparently being called sexy is TOP’s favorite complement. As if the whole world didn’t already know that or anything.
Now for my favorite part. The MC has TOP perform different acts of “fan service”. The first girl will be receiving a special kind of hug from TOP. The MC demonstrates what is going to happen. Ready?
BAM. I don’t know how the girl is still standing. Better get a mop ready.
Know what the best part was? TOP really got into this. He ran full force and PINNED her to the wall. There wasn’t any hesitation. I guess all his recent acting has done him some good!
The next lucky girl got to experience TOP’s back hug. The funny part was that the girl admitted to already having a boyfriend.
But when given a choice, TOP came out on top. Duh.
We have our first casualty. Girl, I understand your pain.
After handing out roses to the girls in the classroom, TOP gets on the school’s intercom to announce his presence at the school for Guerrilla Date.
Much of the student body flocks to the green to get a glimpse of Mr. TOP.
I can see why he was nervous for this appearance…
A fan is picked from the crowd and gets to play a game with TOP. Her expression of surprise is priceless.
They play a sort of hand slap game where I think they are trying to push the other person over.
Of course, it culminates in the fan hugging TOP.
That’s a look of pure joy.
The next fan plays a game where they need to pick which person they like more.
The goal is for them to give the same answer.
First up: G-Dragon vs TOP.
They both yell TOP at the same time and TOP kinda loses it…
and BEAR HUGS the lucky girl.
For a man who doesn’t often display affection in public, TOP was in fine form during this show!
The next round didn’t go quite as well. TOP said a different name than the girl.
But his look of shock was so wonderful.
That concludes the event at Seoul Women’s College. It was brief, but wonderful in so many ways.
Next, The MC and TOP sit down for an interview. He talks about what working at YG means to him, his nickname Bingu TOP, and if there is anything that he is jealous of that other Big Bang members have.
To the last one, he cleverly replied “I don’t think I have any yet”.
For more about the questions and his answers, check out this blog post!
It’s a a short, but nice interview.
To finish it off, TOP puts on some lipstick and kisses a piece of plastic that has his signature on it.
Although cheesy, it seemed like a fitting end to TOP’s Guerrilla Date!
TOP is capable of many great feats, including melting the hearts of women worldwide. The concept for this show was amazing and the execution was also spot on. I’m glad they kept the segment short and really tried to keep it interesting.
It seemed like quite the memorable day for all involved!
Here’s the video of his visit, but I haven’t found one that is subbed in English yet. Regardless, it’s prime television, especially if you love TOP. Take a look!
Did your heart melt? I once again need to compose myself.
TOP, you’ve given us so many great things this week! A new song, music video, and now this wonderful gem of television. Christmas has come early this year!

And I’d heard TOP was the shy one… 😉 Thanks for this write up! 🙂
I know, he usually is very shy! That’s what makes this episode that much more amazing. Thanks for reading!
Loved reading this! I love watching fans freak out when in close proximity to their fave stars. And he looks great in glasses 🙂
I’m glad you liked it! TOP can look good in anything, but glasses certainly are a nice touch!
