TWICE had a giant debut showcase in Japan.

The girls had their debut showcase in Japan on the 2nd. Originally, the girls had one showcase planned, but had to add a second one because of fan requests. The girls performed 8 songs including "Touchdown", "Like OOH-AHH", "Cheer Up", "Knock Knock", "Signal", "TT", "Jelly Jelly", and "One in a Million". 

Not only did the girls bring in 15,000 fans for their showcase, they were also in the company of 1,000 media members from the top outlets in Japan.

The girls also ranked #1 on Oricon's daily album chart. Even though they sold 10,000 copies of their first album, they'd been #2 for the first four days. However, on the day of the showcase, the girls shot up to #1.

Congratulations to TWICE on their incredibly successful Japanese debut.

So they were #1 on the daily chart. On the weekly chart they are #2. WHICH IS A GREAT RESULT - don't get me wrong. Allkpop just shouldn't report on Japanese charts as if they were Korean charts. I know K-pop fans are positively OBSESSED with real-time charts from different providers and ridiculous notions like All Kills, Perfect All Kills and Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Kills, but as far as Japan is concerned the ONLY official chart is Oricon, and the ONLY chart that matters as far as record-keeping is concerned is the weekly chart. No one cares if you manage to squeeze in a day at #1 at the end of the week. It's not uncommon for a bunch of new releases to storm towards the top of the Oricon daily chart on the first day of the week with over 50,000 copies, only for the #1 slot on the final day to just sell 2,000 copies. There is nothing note- or newsworthy about that. Note that this rant isn't aimed at TWICE in particular. I could've said the exact same thing for every other time a K-Pop group got a single day at the top of the daily album (or worse, single) chart and for allkpop to respond with headlines saying "-INSERT GROUP- IS NUMBER ONE IN JAPAN!!!!!!"

I agree getting #1 on a Daily Chart can be achieved with TIMING if you aim the release on a day with not much big players releasing their songs. but getting #1 in a weekly chart is way harder since you need to score high on every day of the week. a

The album is so in demand that even the Tower Records in Shibuya completely sold out of copies! There are no more albums in the stores! OMG !! I'm scared of it, it could not be that fast! I'm really scared for our girls!

Frankly I know a lot of sones are sore about ONCEs calling their idol group TWICE as the nation's girl group or top girl group, i think its not about comparing achievements and records and "Who is greater" than the other. like what SNSD used to say "Popularity is like a Season it comes and goes" right now I think we can see clearly that TWICE is the "IN thing" and the talk of the town, in terms of sales, media buzz and such. TWICE's fans, ONCEs, are celebrating their group's success and hence they should be rightfully so as it is no mean feat to achieve those records and numbers. Though i do see some ONCEs being over insulting to TWICE's sunbaes, there is no need to argue who deserves the title of nation's girl group, when the popularity comes to you, you naturally feel it. Maybe SNSD will be successful in their 10th anniversary comeback, i dunno, but only time will tell. Until then, TWICE hwaiting!! SNSD hwaiting!! Peace.

Correction, the title was given to Twice by the Korean media. Once did not self-proclaim that Twice is the nation's girl group.

Winston hexrealm 23 days ago

The media has NAMED many as the nation's girl group, it doesnt state the ONLY nation's girl group, in the past they have referred SISTAR and 2NE1 as such also, and i think APink also. there is no official throne or title, its just a flattery remark that's all. if you want to look at official records, I would say a Measurement (not that its a fair one), would be something like Best girl Group award at Mnet, which SNSD has won for many years, and i think recently TWICE won also. (Then again SNSD didnt release any album in 2016), so i wonder if in 2017, the award will fall to TWICE again or maybe SNSD might claim it back again? who knows.

What you said doesn't contradict what I said. The title was given by the media and handed over from one group to another over time based on popularity. And right now would you say that group is Twice?

Winston hexrealm 23 days ago

Well i am a fan of both groups (SNSD and TWICE) while SNSD is always #1 in my heart, I would say its TWICE in this generation. Like what heechul said in the show "We love zines" he said TWICE is like the 3rd generation girl group, FinKL/SES being the first, and KARA/WG/SNSD being the 2nd generation, so i guess each "generation" has its "queen", 1st generation were both FinKL and SES, 2nd generation WG and SNSD and 2NE1 were all at the top. (Nobody and Tell Me was the hit in 2008, then came Gee and Fire in 2009), so i would say for generation 3, TWICE would be the current queen, and maybe coming in close in Rank 2, would be RV and GFriend. But thats my own ranking.
