    You know, TWICE, a k-pop girl group who made an official debut in Japan by releasing its first Japanese album "#TWICE" on June 28 is enjoying huge popularity in the country. TWICE's debut album sold over 200,000 copies within just a week, and the album was ranked second on the Oricon's monthly chart.

    By the way, it's notable that Japanese media outlets are now scrambling to report about TWICE's huge popularity in the country because it shows that the girl group is really popular in the country.

    NTV's "News Zero" recently aired a video about TWICE, stating "We did an in-depth coverage of TWICE, who recently made a debut in Japan and is creating a sensation. The girl group is especially loved by young female Japanese, and the girl group's debut album topped Oricon chart".

    The program, which did an in-depth coverage of TWICE for three months added "Many fans feel sympathy toward the TWICE members because they became one to realize their dream even though they're from different countries".

    And Billboard Japan said "TWICE's debut album sold over 137,000 copies within in a week, being ranked second on the album sales chart. There were only two albums which sold over 100,000 copies in the week, which means TWICE's debut is that much successful. TWICE's popularity is increasing all over country, and it is because of the girl group's cute music video and TT pose".

    Sports Hochi, one of the most famous Japanese media outlets also reported about TWICE's huge popularity in the country, stating "TWICE's successful debut signals the start of k-pop boom in Japan. TWICE is now the Asia no.1 girl group, and there are three reasons why the girl group is so popular in Japan. First, they do catchy dances such as TT dance, Sha Sha Sha dance and Knock dance. Second, all of the members are pretty. Third, they're so witty that many fans love them".

    Congrats Twice for slaying not only Korea but also Japan. Once the issues with China are resolved they will probably take over China was well.

    Biggest success of their Japan debut for me was finally being able to listen to their songs on Spotify. Even if they are only the Japanese versions haha

    I have a feeling when TWICE releases their first full length Japanese album with original Japanese music, they'll sell much more.

    Sales are not the only qualification for having the title

    But didn't you just use AKB48? :confused: With that logic neither would they, tho I'm sure it wouldn't fit your dismissive narrative towards Twice being crowned it

    Pretty sure most other Asian countries would get behind Twice being Asia's #1 GG btw

    PS: Korea/Japan's word holds more meaning than a salty Ifan such as yourself

    Japanesse media proclaimed them Japans #1 and Asia #1
    so basically just Japan and Korea say that


    Thailand
    has another story,BlackPink is #1 there
    China is too different,BlackPink won#1 on music charts there

    So which ASIA?

    So getting #1 on a chart = being Asia's #1 GG now?

    Like I said to the other user, most people will take actual Asians word over a salty Ifan who's opinion truly doesn't matter

    Twice has the title, get over it sis

    Receipts:

    Thai people are #1 thrice they literally hate Twice
    they bash and dislike Twice mvs the most and comments things like"BP is better"
    all Thrice/bashing on talents began from Thailand
    all Thrice materials on Twitter are from Thailand mostly

    China hates Twice
    Tzuyu scandal affected Twice
    Chinese people hate Tzuyu
    163: Tzuyu's first appearance after apologizing, smiling while holding hands with members
    1. [+ 2993 -61] Media play. Why not boycott her?

    2. [+ 2420] Faced with a 10+ years old girl and you all still have the nerve to criticize her without feeling any embarrassment. Taiwan's education since young says that Taiwan is a country, this situation is caused by the indulgence and useless condemnation during the time of ancient China. After all, she is a little girl who grew up with this kind of ideological indoctrination, how is it possible for her to instantly change this ideology? Y'all might as well go join the army if you have time to make so much noise.

    3. [+ 1059 - 40] Kill one to warn a hundred. Whether or not you're sincerely sorry, any remarks that split China should be given some punishments, and let those foreign enterprises which earn the Chinese's money but don't respect China see them. Don't as why, rich, stubborn!

    4. [+ 859 - 42] Go to Japan, filming will definitely help you shoot to fame

    5. [+ 376 - 18] Is she collaborating with Huang an? Media playing with each other!

    6. [+ 262 - 5] Afterwards you'll often see this girl appearing on various media in China. Why? Because it is also a political need.

    Artist Zhou Ziyu (Tzuyu) who's involved with Taiwan independence uploaded an apology video: There is only one China

    1. [+ 20372] The well-operated PR team of the Korean company (CNS: referring to JYP ent.) is full of sincerity, the words that are seemingly sincere are actually
    People's Daily via QQ: People's Daily comments on Tzuyu's apology: The one-China principle cannot be challenged
    1. [+ 9250] Saw this at midnight, I really want to sneer at her. After the issue broke out she's still seeking help on foreign social medias for defense against the "barbaric Chinese people", JYP top officials were acting pitiful in South Korea saying that they're bullied by the Chinese, that their company's "innocent girl" who's only 16 is bullied. The clarifications put up on foreign social medias are totally different from the ones posted on Sina, saying that they withdrew from the Chinese market on their own initiative, and will return once we give them a satisfactory reply They're so duplicitous, can they be even more shameless than that? Now, seeing that JYP's stocks plunged overnight and billions of money simply evaporated, and that the issue has gone out of control causing the whole of China to boycott the artists under them, they started acting perfunctory. Even though other artists are affected by this, at the moment, I just want to say that go back to where you come from, get out of the Chinese market that you despise with all the artists under you, we don't want you.

    ~ [+ 72] Actually, Chinese people are very united at critical times, not to mention the intolerance towards anyone who insults China and humiliates the Chinese.

    ~ [+ 66] Well said! Although there are many keyboard warriors in China, but it is certain all of them are patriotic.
    2. [+ 3829] Idols are nothing in the face of national interests! Hope Hong Kong and Taiwan artists can be cautious in their words and actions, act while treasuring it!

    3. [+ 3018] It's time for stupid fans to wake up! Why do Korean celebrities keep coming to China to fish for gold one by one? If not for all your support and active contribution, would they earn so much? Damn it! Can't we chase after our own celebrities? We are looked down upon and yet we have to give money to people, are we not stupid or what?

    4. [+ 2451] One of Park Jin Young's statements is right, if you want to work together with another country, you have to understand and respect this country's culture, history and people! It's obvious that you have crossed our bottom line so don't say that we're narrow-minded! The issue of sovereignty can not be questioned! Be more mindful in future!

    ---

    Sohu: JYP boss and Tzuyu issue public apology: We're very sorry.

    1. [+ 4215] The ideology of Taiwan independence is deeply rooted, they only apologized to keep their jobs.

    2. [+ 3175] We don't accept her apology, she only did that because she's afraid of not making any money in the mainland. We refuse to watch all her programs. Mainland should block her.

    3. [+ 2171] I was very angry too when I first saw her talking about Taiwan independence, and scolded this type of person as well, but since she has admitted her mistakes, I still hope to give others a chance to change for the better. After all, no one is perfect, hope that more HK Taiwan compatriots will learn a lesson from this, without China, you are nothing.

    4. [+ 2068] Huang An, good job!

    5. [+ 1626] oh, feels good, still get out!

    Oh wow a bunch of lame no life internet warriors harass Twice online, woah so terrible

    Yeah..... No. Twice may have very loud Thai antis, but they're still irrelevant

    Twice had their Twiceland concert there not to long ago

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And Twice only received hate from China due to the moronic incident among Tzuyu waving a Taiwanese flag and some Chinese people have already moved on, especially since Tzuyu was the victim at the end

    And even with that incident, the rest of Asia and many in the world stood behind Tzuyu and Twice during the incident

    So nope, Twice are still Asia's #1 GG at the end of the day. No ifs, ands, or buts.

    You can dislike it all you want, but you can't dismiss it especially when you're an Ifan. The quicker you accept that the better.

    On a sidenote: Using that incident among to push a delulu agenda towards Twice isn't cute, doing to much

    i didn't push any incidents ,i just stated the past
    and in Thailand,i know for sure BlackPink is #1 bcs Lisa's fans are more than Twice 's fans (charts,media exposure,general public)
    Thais are very nationalistic you see

    and in Philipines really BlackPink is well loved(by articles,netizens,general public) bcs they are from YG like Dara 2ne1


    so still Twice has to conquer Thailand AND PHYLIPINES and China
    a concert with max 15k seats is not enough to beat Blood(Aka Lisa or Yg popularity)
