New girl group 4L have hit back at critics who attacked adult rated video teasers for their upcoming debut single, "Move".

After members J-na, Chany, Jayeong and Yesol released the short preview clips --  in which they can be seen performing erotic choreography routines and even a steamy lesbian clinch -- internet fans spoke out negatively claiming that the content was too sexual.

Rather than to try and diffuse and neutralise the controversy, a rep for 4L defended critical comments -- even suggesting that there's more to come!

"Even from its name 4L, which stand for Four Ladies, this is a group that embraces primal sexuality," says a spokesperson at their label, Jade Contents Media. "As efforts were made to distil this raw sexuality, the music video inevitably features many excessively sexual scenes. But these images are just the tip of the iceberg."

When contacted by IdolWow! the rep further commented, "It's inevitable for the concept of the group, there's nothing we can do about it. The music video and teaser have both been rated 19+ in Korea. And we have accepted the restrictions on promotions."

4L's debut single "Move" is released on Monday, August 4. Although it's not yet known if they will be bringing their routines to the likes of Music Bank, you can be sure it won't be the last you hear of the group.
