yay for girl groups! 🎉 I feel like for a few years boy groups were popular and no one really cared about girl groups, i stan more girl groups but expected boy groups to make the list

zahiadaoudi fifefei Monday, December 12, 2016

no in korea just be sure it will always be girl groups , why do u think twice won song of the year , for the love of their faces ? of course for the digital sales koreans throw at them

shireen_deen Friday, December 9, 2016

Obviously the topic says KOREA. So not surprising that someone came up twice. koreans dont appreciate quality. As long as its cutesy, sickeningly sweet, its go! Move out exo, move out bts . Let us international fans adore you instead!

NotBiasedKpop shireen_deen Friday, December 9, 2016

So you are saying that the quality of music of Twice is not that good? WOW! Salty pussy fangirl. HAHA. Do not bring down Twice girl,

shireen_deen NotBiasedKpop Saturday, December 10, 2016

I guess you would think I said that. Depends on your definition of quality. My kind isnt the cutesy sickeningly sweet type (repeat) . So what to do. But as koreans like it , what can I say

erosannin shireen_deen Saturday, December 10, 2016

you talked about quality, then you should watch Fifth Harmony, Adelle, Bruno Mars, John Legend, Beyonce, and many others and accepted the truth both of your-biased boy groups which you mentioned before not even close to catch up the vocal of singers I mentioned above. Quality is subjectively based on opinion, and you can't force people to accept your opinion, Dude. We talk about numbers here, both of Twice and GFriend were staying in top for more than 20 days on charts. Their album selling physically and digitally can compare with boygroups whom has established for more than years in K-Pop industry. You should realize Twice only a year girlgroup. The numbers never lie, Dude. They deserve to have tha recognition from Korean People.

shireen_deen erosannin Tuesday, December 13, 2016

+erosannin Oh dear. MUST you bring up all those names when we're talking about korean music? Totally out of context. And numbers dont mean anything since its chicken or egg issue. Koreans love sickeningly sweet sounds , so they buy , stream whatever. So the numbers go up. Facts my dear. The issue isnt the group , its korean choice

erosannin shireen_deen Tuesday, December 13, 2016

why you make a double standard when we talk about music?? If you talk about quality, oh please, It subjectively depends on people choice. I bring the numbers because It proves everything. When you talk Internationally Choice, you can take a glimpse on Youtube when 2 previous mvs of Twice are exceeds 100 mio views. Their album also world no. 2 on Billboard World Album. Those are the facts, my friend. The issue isn't the group or the korean choice, it's you and another people who can't accept their popularity not only in Korean but globally. Bringing music quality is just subjectively a justification. But the numbers never lie. "Cheer up, my friend", just let people love Twice more and you love your faves too without bragging another group.

shireen_deen erosannin Wednesday, December 14, 2016

+erosannin You actually explained my comments. If you talk about quality, oh please, It subjectively depends on people choice." Thus take my comment as it is: my comment. WHats double standard? I like exo and said so and dislike twice and said so? I definitely am letting you love twice. No one asked fans to stop liking them. DId I?

erosannin shireen_deen Wednesday, December 14, 2016

so why did you say Korean people don't like quality?? that's obviously offensive?? It means you judge Twice music is not a quality compared to exo and bts?? the news talked about numbers and you made a statement about qualitative opinion. Oh dear, please can't you see the difference about quantitative and qualitative statements? It's funny, that's why I always said about numbers never lie instead arguing with your opinion based on your justification and subjective statement.

shireen_deen erosannin Wednesday, December 14, 2016

+erosannin Is this confusion by roundabout talking? I wont bite. Take my statement as you like. Be offended as you like. Ive commented and I meant what I said. No double standard as far as Im concerned (which atually means judging by two different standards). I judged by 1 standard and thats mine.

erosannin shireen_deen Wednesday, December 14, 2016

Offended, obviously no, my friend. But judging Korean's choice do not appreciate quality, It is over the limit. Just because their taste different with your taste, you can judge them about music quality.

shireen_deen erosannin Friday, December 16, 2016

+erosannin Are we still harping on this. Move on. I have

queenbetchreturn Friday, December 9, 2016

korea doesn't care about talent if twice is #1. they just want some talentless pretty girls who can dance. next.

nluvmiya queenbetchreturn Friday, December 9, 2016

Ok jealous hoe....

queenbetchreturn nluvmiya Friday, December 9, 2016

twice can bearly hold a note? what is their to be jealous of? lmao

hexrealm queenbetchreturn Friday, December 9, 2016

Being and staying popular is a talent too.

aldebaran queenbetchreturn Friday, December 9, 2016

looks like they don't need to

nluvmiya queenbetchreturn Friday, December 9, 2016

Hold a note is that??? Plz they been through variety show of sixteen and practicing dancing and singing for 24/7 amd what has your ass been doing? Sitting on the comp and be complaining that they cant sing?? Since your not a Once you havent diggin up a lot of their past histories. Jihyo is a leader and she can hold a long ass notes along with nayeon and jungyeon. Tzuyu and mina and momo are improving day by day so be talking smack you hoe

nluvmiya Friday, December 9, 2016


eottoke queenbetchreturn Friday, December 9, 2016

you called them talentless but you said they are pretty girls who can dance. isn't dancing considered a talent? you are contradicting your own statement.

NotBiasedKpop queenbetchreturn Friday, December 9, 2016

Salty pussy fangirl again. HAHA

Looolgolol Friday, December 9, 2016

Sorry but are you guys new to kpop why always nag about not having enough talent kpop is about entertaining and putting on performances you should know that by now so stop with the complaining and crying about why certain people are popular and how it's unfair newsflash the world don't have the same opinions as you so sit back and relax and being so butthurt

AJLie Friday, December 9, 2016

i wonder how the untalented rats twice in the 1st place when the only talent they have is selling their fugly plastic faces.

eottoke AJLie Friday, December 9, 2016

if selling fugly plastic faces is a talent, then you should rich and popular by now.

nluvmiya AJLie Friday, December 9, 2016

Surpringly none of the twice member did plastic surgery except for nayeon. She just changed her nose....

NotBiasedKpop nluvmiya Friday, December 9, 2016

I dont think so. It is just like her puberty stage.

TWICElove nluvmiya Saturday, December 10, 2016

Actually,their are other article say that naeyeon didn't do Ps,is the ankle of the photo that looks like she done nose job,but at the other ankle she isn't,so it's allkpop that try to bring naeyeon down.

erosannin AJLie Saturday, December 10, 2016

I give you a clue to realize that Twice really deserve to get the top spot for being loved. If you have time, please look up the history of the charts of their song of which I know, stayed for several weeks on top spot. Also you can take a glimpse for their album selling in Korea of which I know that they have been selling for almost 500 thousands copies of their 3 albums, not to mention they only just a year girl group. For your additional information, their two previous songs have been watched for more 100 mio views on Youtube and their latest song, called TT, has been watched for almost 80 mio views on Youtube, not to mention the song just only one and a half month age. Numbers never lie, Dude. I believe you can accept why allkpop made the news for that.

pablo27 AJLie Monday, December 12, 2016

Piece of shit...

AJLie pablo27 Monday, December 12, 2016

yes Twice is <3

pablo27 AJLie Monday, December 12, 2016

Guess your Mom paid good money to send you to idiot school... ooops, mah bad... you probably got in on a full scholarship.... piece of shit...

AJLie pablo27 Monday, December 12, 2016

yes, You & twice is piece of shit <3

pablo27 AJLie Monday, December 12, 2016

so it's yes that you got a full scholarship from idiot school...

pablo27 AJLie Monday, December 12, 2016

piece of shit...

FreshQueen Friday, December 9, 2016

It looks like girlgroups are far more popular than boygroups in Korea. There's 6 girlgroups on the list and not a single boygroup..

SangBawiUk FreshQueen Friday, December 9, 2016 Boy groups make far more money and have are more popularity/fans.BTS and EXO's fans alone are bigger than most girl group's fans combined though I do get what you're saying. It is indeed weird..

Nightmoon Friday, December 9, 2016


RAS33 Friday, December 9, 2016

wow exo didn't even come up. I can understand bts, but i assumed since China has their own platforms for EXO the next biggest views would be Korea then international. Ofcourse BTS is showing more internationally, not that surprised.

FreshQueen RAS33 Friday, December 9, 2016

I don't see bts on the list though..

gelaaa RAS33 Friday, December 9, 2016

idk what the point of this comment is

RAS33 FreshQueen Friday, December 9, 2016

ya there not on the list, i'm saying it's not so surprising since their a boy band more popular internationally, even though i thought they were becoming more popular in korea

RAS33 gelaaa Friday, December 9, 2016

just surprised to see the lack of boy bands especially exo, but then it's korea

gelaaa RAS33 Friday, December 9, 2016

lol tbh bts is kind of more popular in korean than exo imo

RVM7 RAS33 Friday, December 9, 2016

I think it's because EXO has been going quite stable lately. They are doing very well but their recent comebacks weren't sensational. I am surprised about BTS, though, since they were so "in" this year.

eottoke RAS33 Friday, December 9, 2016

dont be surprised. girl groups has more fan boys and fan girls these days. boy groups has more fangirls but less fanboys..

eottoke RAS33 Friday, December 9, 2016

and fanboys these days are as crazy and dedicated as fangirls.

RVM7 Friday, December 9, 2016

I honestly have nothing against Twice but I feel (personal opinion y'all) that their concepts and songs are pretty mediocre for the hype around them. They look gorgeous, no doubt but if you look above the superficial charms, they are less qualified as singers/performers and need to up their game. Unfortunately, a bunch of their fans get butthurt at the criticism and refuse to take anything in good taste.

RAS33 RVM7 Friday, December 9, 2016

cute and pretty works in korea though, talent does too bu looks come first unfortunetly

InvisibleBBC02 RVM7 Friday, December 9, 2016

I completely agree with you. Especially that part about butthurt fans.

Calamity10 RVM7 Friday, December 9, 2016

Once already accepted the fact that Twice isn't the best at vocals. The only thing Once can't accept is the fact that Twice is improving but slowly yet haters don't want to accept it and still bashing them.

RVM7 Calamity10 Friday, December 9, 2016

I understand where you're coming from. And it is great that they are improving. But my point remains that they are too hyped up even when their vocals are sub-par. At the end of the day, they are singers and it doesn't look like they are being liked for their singing skills.

eottoke RVM7 Friday, December 9, 2016

if we are talking about singers in korea, we are talking about legit singers like baek jiyoung, sung si kyung, lyn, k will and more. idols need not to be extremely good in their vocal unless they are a ballad group. there are different factors why twice is popular in korea. it may not be the vocal talent, but their songs are catchy, trendy and their dance is easy and fun. they also have good visuals and good charms. and their dances has alot of aegyo, which koreans really like. if we are talking about vocal talent, then let's just give it to the real singers that i mentioned.

RVM7 eottoke Friday, December 9, 2016

Their songs are quite hum-able and their dances have point moves but we can attribute it as the reason for their success but not for their contribution as a group. I disagree with you on the point that idols do not have to be good singers. I think when so many years of hardwork is being put in, they are so more than just pretty faces.

eottoke RVM7 Friday, December 9, 2016

i did not say idols do not have to be good singers. i said idols need not to be "extremely good" in their vocal. meaning it's still good but not really really good.

RVM7 eottoke Friday, December 9, 2016

Oh, I see. Even so, personally, I find only Jihyo, Jungyeon and Nayeon to be the ones who can sing effortlessly.

hexrealm RVM7 Friday, December 9, 2016

Doesn't what you said apply to all the girl groups? i.e. only a few out of them can sing and the others serve other purposes.

RVM7 hexrealm Friday, December 9, 2016

Yes, if the shoe fits. There might be many groups, not only girl groups, with the same setting but Twice are crazy popular. Twice.

RVM7 hexrealm Friday, December 9, 2016

Apologies for the typos. :P

hexrealm RVM7 Friday, December 9, 2016

Someone has to be that popular. With the same formula and yet they are overachieving, they must be doing something right or have their own unique charms. Anyway, popularity has nothing to do with talents(not saying they don't have any).

RVM7 hexrealm Friday, December 9, 2016

Catchy music and easy-to-follow dances might be some of the reasons. It has been already mentioned in a comment by the user eottoke. It might be that and skilled promotions along with the vibes they give off.

delina RVM7 Friday, December 9, 2016

It's been said again, and again and again.... that Once accepts the fact that Twice lack in vocal talent, there are much room for improvements. Yes, they are definitely gorgeous, but their beauty isn't the main reason why they're loved by many. There are many girl groups out there that are so so gorgeous. There is something about the girls... they each have their individual charms, they have catchy songs, easy and catchy dance moves that are easily followed and loved by many people of all ages. Everyone has different taste in musics. Some of you find them so so, but some of us enjoy their musics, loves the girls and supports them accepting their flaws. Some days, I listen to Twice, other days, to other amazing groups or solo artists, and there are days I am in the mood for just ballad or kdrama ost songs. Truthfully, it can be a bit annoying when people ask over and over again why the girls are loved so much.. Wish you guys can just accept it too without the harsh's not like Twice and Once doesn't know it already that they need to improve. Constructive Criticism is fine, but you cannot deny that there are many many mean hateful, hurtful comments out there toward the girls.. some are absolutely ridiculous. It's extremely painful, but what can we do.. =( I hope that many of you give them the chance to grow and improve.

shubhajan RVM7 Friday, December 9, 2016

Twice are filled with talent, talent doesnt have to be about singing

RVM7 delina Friday, December 9, 2016

I've never hated on them. I am in neutral tones pointing out what I felt while watching them. I know that my bias group (Exo) is lacking in many aspects and I admit it. Hateful comments are there about every other group, not just Twice. On the contrary, they are at the receiving end of so much love too, As fans, there is nothing much you can do. There is no point even in getting hurt because everyone is going to have different views,

RVM7 shubhajan Friday, December 9, 2016

Never called them untalented, though? Merely pointed out their lacking singing skills.

delina RVM7 Friday, December 9, 2016

I'm not saying u hate them either... just so we are clear on this. I respect everyone's opinions. And you're right... there's nothing that can be done about getting hurt, but as fans... we have feelings too, and to read so much negative mean comments from other people toward the girls, it's hurtful and upsetting.. They're young, they will improve, and they're at the beginning of their dream.. They work hard like everyone else.. They're one of the busiest idols this year... yet there are alot of hate on the girls, I can never understand why.. there are other groups getting hate too but not like Twice... Again, there's nothing we can do about it, but to just move on from it. Many people question why the hype, why are they loved so much, why the fame, the popularity, when Twice lack in vocal, dance and talent you guys ask, etc. etc... But can't you guys just accept it too? Why, Why the need to ask? When you ask or make a comment like that, it's only normal that you will get replies from Once or other fans. All I can say is that, every fan has different taste when they love a group, they may love for different reasons. I continue to love and support my favorite groups and singers, and you continue to do the same. If we can all just respect each other without putting anyone down, how great that would be.

shubhajan delina Friday, December 9, 2016

Yep i agree with you, people like the other person are jelous of how popular Twice have gotten

NotBiasedKpop RVM7 Friday, December 9, 2016

Making people happy is the real talent :) And if twice is not a good performers they will not making their own name and breaking all the records.

RVM7 delina Friday, December 9, 2016

I hope you would understand that criticism is not hate, it never was. And I am sure that our opinions are not even reaching them. They are loved in Korea and that's all they know. It is difficult to have conversations about idols and how they can improve if this is how everyone is going to react. One of the Once fans just called me jealous lmao. It is outright immature and sad.

TWICElove InvisibleBBC02 Saturday, December 10, 2016

The reason why fans get trigger only bcs the hater is overreacting,think about it,while your favs have so many anti can you still being rational? is hard to being rational while you talk to the hater( i am not say you are a hater,don't get me wrong).

TWICElove RVM7 Saturday, December 10, 2016

I know why so many ppl don't like their concept,but their popularity is not all about their song are medicore or not.

TWICElove RVM7 Saturday, December 10, 2016

Many year? one of them less than a year and she is foreigner,and one of them less than three year also foreigner,and the rapper in twice (chaeyong) you have no idea this girls can do(She sings(melody project), raps, writes lyrics, draws and even designs their album jackets. She also has a line of shoes that she designed. It's Spris Twice Special. )but i think jyp should let them trained more , and the main vocal jihyo she has a powerful voice(even she is not comfortable in high note)

pablo27 RVM7 Monday, December 12, 2016

I would have understood you if this was written a year ago... you say twice fans can't take criticism... well, I look at twice articles all the time and not once has there been a fan that said Twice has superb vocals... the problem here is people like you who still rant and rave after a year about their lack of talent... it's not the fandoms fault that you don't like them... it's your fault for not respecting a group that's the favorite of a lot of people... you people hide your comments behind the words "criticism" and "opinions"... these words are oftentimes used to get away with insulting Twice... their fans never started anything unless they see comments like these...

RVM7 pablo27 Monday, December 12, 2016

Okay, first of all, Twice started gaining relevance and popularity since 2016 aka this year. There would have been no need for me to comment on this last year. Secondly, I have seen people (fans, basically) blatantly defend their singing skills. Just because you haven't, doesn't mean it doesn't happen. Thirdly, if you can show your love for a group, others have the right to display dislike towards the same group without being rude or "bashing" them. Nobody is insulting them. Facts stay where they are. So, if you think everyone will welcome a group you like and adore with equal love, you're mistaken. I was never rude about Twice and I won't ever be (to them or to any other group) but my """opinions""" won't change either.

pablo27 RVM7 Monday, December 12, 2016

I never said that was the case... whether the group gets welcomed or not is none of my concern... what gets to me is why everybody reserves the "right" to voice out "opinions" without having to try and think about it... I have asked it many times... why do people always insist on having their say on something that shouldn't matter to them? How hard is it to just not say anything?... There's groups I don't like but I don't read up on their articles and "criticize"... it just creates bad blood... and I am not a critic... I'm not about having Twice gain more fans... or get accepted more...that's their job...

RVM7 pablo27 Monday, December 12, 2016

Right to giving one's opinion can't be denied unless it is concerned with jeopardizing someone's integrity as an individual. And none of that is happening - in my comment, at least. Handling negative response is their job as well and I'm pretty sure they are trained for it.

mejiadenise10 Friday, December 9, 2016

I first thought most viewed, but no it just means most watched/liked in Korea. This just prooves that our bias arent so popular in korea just internationally. Interesting.... :)
