Top Combine is a Mandopop boy band. The group formed in 2007 with the members Bird Zhang, Mars Ma, Kenny Liu, Caesar Li, and Tanas Kim. All were professionally trained in singing, dancing, modeling, and language.With the exception of Tanas, the other four members were all contestants of the 2007 Super Boy, the male counterpart of Super Girl. Top Combine officially debuted in October 2007 with a performance of their first single “Arrival”. In 2012, Caesar left to pursue an acting career, and the five-member group turned into a quartet.
In June 2012, rumors began to spread that Caesar had left Top Combine, due to a promotional poster that featured the other four members without Caesar. At the time Caesar was heavily involved in stage acting and other events, and so was not with the other group members as often. Top Combine’s manager refuted any rumors that the group would disband, explaining that Caesar did not appear on the poster because he would not be able to attend the concert that the poster was promoting.
On September 20, 2012, Caesar announced that he would be leaving Top Combine to pursue a solo career in acting. The decision was made after much consideration with his group members and with his company. The other four members expressed their support of his decision on their Weibo accounts. There are no plans to find a new member to replace Caesar.
