Netizens have come up with a theory regarding the most popular 3rd generation girl groups after comparing them through the 5th title songs that each group promoted. 


One post on an online community argued favoring the theory, 'The Law of the 5th Title Song within the Top Three 3rd Generation Girl Groups'. This theory suggested that all of the top three 3rd generation girl groups - TWICE, Red Velvet, and G-Friend - suffered from their all time low's during their 5th promotional tracks. See for yourselves below if you agree.

First, the theory looked at Red Velvet's promotions. After "Happiness", "Be Natural", "Ice Cream Cake", and "Dumb Dumb", the group's 5th promotional song came to "One of These Nights (July 7)", which the writer of the theory claimed was "the Red Velvet song with the worst music chart score ever". Supposedly, anti-fans of Red Velvet even call the song "Fail Month Fail Day". 


G-Friend, who debuted with "Glass Bead", then followed up with "Me Gustas Tu", "Rough", "NAVILLERA", and their 5th promotional song "Fingertip", was known for being the first girl group in history to record over 10,000,000 streamings on music charts with "Me Gustas Tu". The theory stated, however, that "after attempting a concept change, their song fell off the chart". 



Finally, the theory arrived at TWICE, whose 5th promotional song is their latest title track "Signal" after "Like OOH-AHH", "Cheer Up", "TT", and "Knock Knock". The song is currently receiving enormous backlash online, despite being composed by J.Y. Park. Compared to TWICE's other title tracks, "Signal" faces big competitors on music charts such as Unnies, Psy, IU, and more, and "may be the first TWICE song to fail at reaching 10,000,000 streamings", according to the writer of the theory. 



Other netizens commented about the theory, "You really can't deny the bad music chart scores in all of their 5th title songs", "Whoa, fascinating", "If you say it like that solely based on the music chart scores without considering the songs for their charms, it's true... but I personally like all of the [above mentioned 5th title songs]", "But everyone will only do better!", and more. 


What are you thoughts on the 'The Law of the 5th Title Song within the Top Three 3rd Generation Girl Groups'?

Yes, Cheer up was so so so so bad.. I hate it as much as ''I'm gonna be a star'', Signal is way better than cheer up

" This isnt really true. I mean really! The thing is that they didn't have good songs or good lyrics. I wanted to see the music video but the song was...........put on mute. The song resembles every other title put out by signal, the lyrics are.......yeah. I've heard this from JYP it was an awesome song called "Fool" from the wondergirls. JYP should stop pushing his songs on them, they're terrible after the third time. This song sucks compared to that one. Red Velvets song "One of these nights" was beautiful but it wasn't something i would actually care for. showcased their vocals tho. Gfriends song sounds outdated. Everything else is awesome

The difference is that One Of These Nights is a vocal masterpiece and Fingertip is a dance masterpiece. As for Signal, i feel like its a downgrade in terms of vocals AND dance. How come Like Ooh Ahh is TWICE's most dance/vocal intensive song? Its like they are going in reverse in terms of progress.

Ur wrong, Singnal is the strongest dance song Twice had ever made, cheer up, TT and KK were just cutesy performance, this time with Signal they r actually dancing go check the dance practice video u'll know what I mean, the vocal part too, sana, Tzuyu and chaeyoung are singing the chorus and the bridge is all jungyeon, and mina they r all singing this time (with their actual voices I must add) instead of just being Jihyo, Nayeon and 7 backup dancers. Unless by vocal u mean how Mina goes all follow before Jihyo screams high notes at the end of every song, then yeah this song doesn't have it, and vocal isn't about high notes

My thoughts exactly on the backup dancers. I was wondering when the others were going to actually start singing instead of mostly dance. Good call.

So I guess Mamamoo doesn't count? I mean, Decalcomanie (their 5th title song) was pretty lit and did well on the charts. Regardless, I don't think the article did a good job with their reasoning. First of all, who gets to choose these "TOP 3" 3rd generation girl group. Like did someone actually take the time to categorize all of the girl-groups into set generation groups AND then rank them? Secondly, wouldn't these groups be more like 5th or 6th? (for example: 1st = S.E.S, Fin.K.L, etc; 2nd = SNSD, Wonder Girls, etc; 3rd = 2NE1,SISTAR, etc; and so on). Finally, chart rankings pretty unreliable...so yeah. Besides, who the hell cares? If the fans like it, that's all that matters.

Chart Rankings determine if its popular with a range of audience. Twice is still pretty fresh and an IT girl who is doing very well. Yeah Chart Rankings are important but longevity is more. I rather my bias group stay in the top 50 for months on end than hit #1 for a day or two

I tried posting this earlier but someone took this the wrong way, but ill say it again. Why is it necessary for websites to post such negative articles like this? YES I UNDERSTAND IT'S AN OPINION THESE SONGS ARE NOT AS GOOD AS THEIR OTHERS, HOWEEVVVVER, We should be informing the public more about constructive criticism towards a group rather than singling out one very negative opinion that a majority of the fans don't feel so. I WILL REPEAT, I AM A FAN OF ALL THESE GROUPS AND LOVE THIER SONGS. my message is that we should be spreading more positive news rather than expressing the opinions of a select group that is extremely negative.

But this theory doesn't go though for Red Velvet: One of These Nights was either their Sixth, or their Fourth release... Happiness, Be Natural, Ice Cream Cake, Automatic, Dumb Dumb, One of These Nights. If you say Automatic shouldn't count because its a tie in single to Ice Cream Cake, then similalrly Be Natural wasn't really an official single either was it? So that would make One of These Nights the 4th Single

If the six-single idea is true, then Dumb Dumb was their fifth single and that was a HUGE hit. If the four single idea is true, then Russian Roulette was their fifth single and that an even BIGGER hit. So this theory has a few holes in it.

exactly my point, plus i find their definition of "the big three" quite strained, but I'm happy they refer to this as the 3rd generation, rather than 4th - ive been advocating myself for that for years now

Russian Rouellette for me was RED VELVET's best bop. Signal as well, for TWICE. :)

I loved it as well but it didn't do well on the charts.. regardless, it's not their 5th released.. it's the 4th or 6th one..
