TWICE has broken the 150,000 wall!

For girl groups, 150,000 copies is often called the 'unbreakable' wall because most groups have never sold above that number. However, TWICE has broken the record this week, breaking above the 150,000 wall.

SEE ALSO: TWICE to make a comeback!


The girls had already set a record last May by selling 100,000 copies of 'Page Two', the most ever for girls in 2016. Now that they've broken the 150,000 barrier, they're the most-sold girl group for groups debuted past 2010. 

Congratulations to TWICE!

Props to them for being so popular. But they are so overrated, ill never understand. The top kpop groups have always been TALENTED. Look at Big Bang, Girls Generation, EXO, 2NE1. They all are amazing at what they do. But Twice..all i see are visuals. Their best vocalist is quite lacklustre and their best dancer isn't super great either. If they ever had a face-off with any other rookie group (in terms of raw talent), they would get destroyed. Sad that this new generation of kpop is becoming like this :/

as much as I hate 'shitting on other fandoms' (because then my fandom will been seen negatively) it is true, they honestly are ok, no special vocals tbh, and slightly overrated which always comes to bite the artist from the back. Still them breaking record good is something I don't have a problem with. It's all about being smart with marketing and promoting so for those who think their bias groups are better please blame their company not other fandoms and artists.

Feel the same, their vocals aren't that great. Visuals are prettay i guess jyp was hunting looks and not vocals. I do like twice tho. But not that much. Over rated yes.

Overrated? And who decides what the standard for rating is, you? Twice has risen to be a top-tier group in record time. They have won shows, awards, and now destroyed sales records. They have a massive international fan base and are among the most wanted product endorsers. Except in your butthurt fantasyland, how does all this add up to "overrated?"

I dun think idol groups have to always be great at vocals, if you want to judge a group based on vocals, then you should be a fan of groups like Davichi or some other girl groups, maybe EXID's Solji. Unless you are comparing TWICE with Taeyeon. which will be unfair to do so.

No no sir thats not it, I'm saying that their main vocalist ( i think its nayeon ) sings pretty well but on stage it just doesnt sound that great with the other girls. Ive been to a twice concert once by chance if youre wondering. Not comparing anyone to my goddess here eh got that? Snsd is snsd twice is the cute twice. Their mr removed versions are bad i dare say but the girls can improve and they will. Peace

do u even know what overrated means? Overrated means they are super popular, but don't have the talent to back it up. So yes, they are overrated. Go cry in denial now.

Again, show me this scientific formula for determining talent levels? Your fucking worthless opinion does not count as the standard of talent measurement. Twice have won 7 national awards including "Best Singer Selected by Cable TV Music Producers." But your butthurt opinion means more.

lmao theres no such things as a scientific formula to measure talent dumbass. Just compare them to other groups. Their vocals are weaker than other groups, their dancing is average, only their visuals are good. This is a fact. Not an opinion. If you seriously think Twice members can sing as well as Red Velvet, G-Friend, Mamamoo, 2NE1, SNSD, etc then your are in denial. Simple. Awards mean nothing, Demi Lovato doesnt have a grammy. Does that mean she cant sing? No, she's one the best female vocalists on this generation. Stay salty :)

Again, it is all subjective... there is no objective measurement to fucking measure talent moron,,, beyond sales figures and awards, and in that category Twice kicks ass beyond RV, GF, and all the others except SNSD which has 9 years of accumulated success. And I like all of the groups you mentioned and more, and think they all have unique appeals and talents. None cancel out the other nimrod. It isn't a zero-sum game. So again, it comes down to your fucking opinion, versus the opinions of a few million others. And like the usual kpop hive drone, you think robotic technical mastery is all there is to consider. To some a Dali or Picasso painting is nothing but a worthless incomprehensible mess, and they prefer realism like that of Rembrandt to abstraction. Is one less art than the another? There is far more to music than hitting high notes and having perfect pitch. That is why music is art and not a science nitwit. The value of art is in how it impacts the viewer or listener in a way that is valuable to that person, and Twice has achieved that or they would not have reached the point where they are at. Stay butthurt and stupid :)

Just cause theres no standard way to measure talent, it doesnt disprove my point. Ask any vocal coach and I'm sure they would tell you to same thing. You may like the tone of their voices, but in terms of technique/range their vocals lack incredibly. You cant deny that, no matter what "opinion" or "taste" you have. Their dancing isn't superb either based on what we've seen. Theres an obvious difference between them and those other groups. And the many people will agree that Twice doesnt have the talent to back up their popularity (as a genuine opinion, not from hatred or bias). The amount of awards they have only further support my point that they are overrated. Obviously you can like Twice, theres nothing wrong with that. But its hard to deny that they are overrated. The american equivalent is kind of like Selena Gomez. She is insanely popular and has successful songs. But she is not a great singer, nor is she a good performer. She doesnt really have anything to back up her popularity other than a pretty face, likability, and being lucky with catchy songs :/

And then there's you, Okay, first of all, Digital is not even beneficial to the artist altho it means there's a public appeal to them you still have to buy their album to show them support, secondly bulk buying or not, physical huge sales indicate that you've got a huge/loyal fandom who'll support the artist no matter what at the same time they don't get to have concerts oversees and it would harder to launch a solo career conclusion that is, you've got to be both, physically and digitally successful and just so you know are not that bad in icharts they are number 2 you know. And not everyone like myself would buy five copies so you know. So stop generalizing, not all EXO-Ls are the same

At the same time for digital, people don't seem to care for the artist as much until their next hit and if they flop they are doomed, so like I said, one is not enough, but TWICE seem to be doing fine so it's good for them and let us not create any unnecessary fanwars
