NHK is Under Fire for Confirming TWICE's Appearance on 'Kōhaku Uta Gassen'

On November 14, Japanese broadcasting station NHK confirmed TWICE's appearance on 'Kōhaku Uta Gassen'. This makes them the first K-Pop girl group to appear on 'Kōhaku Uta Gassen' 2 consecutive years.


However, their appearance make something controversial. Until 2 weeks ago, Japanese media outlets had written many articles about the Korean groups whose chances were high to appear on 'Kōhaku Uta Gassen'. Those groups were TWICE -almost certain- for girl groups, TVXQ -with a higher chance- and BTS -with a lower chance- for boy groups.


Following BTS' Jimin's t-shirt incident, it was rumoured that all Hallyu stars' promotions were going to be turned down because of Jimin's t-shirt so everyone blamed him. Although their appearance wasn't certain, many netizens made it look like the t-shirt incident was so huge that cancelled their participation.


On the other side, many people claimed that it was because of the political issues between South Korea and Japan.


Now that TWICE is going to appear on 'Kōhaku Uta Gassen', it's seems like the shirt incident and political issues don't affect Hallyu groups. However, some people think that TWICE has an advantage of 3 Japanese members and this helps them to appear on Kōhaku Uta Gassen.
Japanese netizens are not happy with their appearance. These are the most liked netizen comments on Yahoo Japan (10K to 15K):
-Invite a Japanese group instead
-There must be a problem with NHK's judges

-It was a good move to stop BTS' promotions but what about this Hallyu group? I'm done with NHK.
-This is not a Korean broadcasting station. 3 members being Japanese don't change the fact that they are a Hallyu group
-You don't listen to the public's opinion. NHK is over
-What's NHK doing?
-Stop paying NHK reception fee
-The reception contract is canceled
-We will stop paying reception fee!
-We don't need Hallyu in Japan
-NHK is over.


What's your opinion?

  1. TWICE

Obviously TWICE has priority because unlike BTS, TWICE literally debuted in Japan with full Japanese albums and Japanese promotions/commercials, movie/show osts. Twice arent treated like a kpop group in japan. They're treated as normal Japanese idols because of all their achievements. Japanese onces literally worship twice lol

I’m not questioning the authenticity of this article but may I know the source?


This is a highly commented article for Kohaku on Yahoo! Japan directly talking about TWICE participation: https://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/article?a=20181114-00000051-sasahi-ent


But none of the top comments are criticizing TWICE directly although its true some netizens commented that NHK should only allow Japanese artists. But these comments have been there every time a foreign act participate, with or without TWICE

The article that you shared talked about TWICE in the end (and no TWICE in the title).
This one talked about TWICE appearance in Kohaku since first paragraph (and TWICE in the title).

https://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20181115-000000...
I translated using Google Translate
Top #1 comment (7240 likes, 230 dislikes):
"そのシャツの件があろうとなかろうと、出場させないでもらいたい。" --> Whether there is a case of that shirt or not, I would like you to not participate.
Top #2 comment (7093 likes, 280 dislikes):

"勿論、紅白出演は白紙になるますよね?
平成最後の紅白です
歴史に残る、日本の紅白にしてほしいと思いますので
韓国人など見たくも有りません!!"

--> Of course, the red and white appearance will be blank?

Heisei is the last red and white

I want you to make it Japan's red and white, remaining in history

I do not want to see Koreans! !

Thanks for sharing this link. You do realised your article is dated 15 Nov 2018 right? It is 1 day after this article. I’m questioning the source of this writer when he/she wrote this article on 14 Nov 2018.


And I believe you understand the title of this article? The whole article is accusing TWICE of wearing clothes of a particular brand which support comfort woman. Hence, it accuses TWICE of supporting comfort woman, lol. A bit far-fetch to be honest. (Anyway, Yoo Jae Suk made direct donations to support comfort woman)


With such accusation of TWICE, I’m not surprised that the comments will be negative too.

The old Japanese Guard is just beginning to really shake in their boots! They have an entire Japanese generation growing up idolizing Koreans! (My daughter was in Japanese school....all her friends were big time Kpop fans!) And the Jpop scene has nothing even close to rivalling any of the top 20 or so Kpop groups! This is very scary for them!

It's been like this before, kpop was actually banned from broadcast in Japan before that's why hallyu wave there isn't as big during first gen or a bit of 2nd gen's time. It's not the first and it won't be the last.

Let's just hope the broadcast stations don't impulsively change their tune based on the views of vocal minorities. I like to see the likes in support of the invitation. This is just one sided article.

as a Jpop fan, this was to be expected whether or not it was TWICE who participated. There are alot of hate comments for Hallyu stars and because of recent political issues, these haters are more active. Nevertheless, this should not cast any doubt on the group's popularity in Japan, and congrats to the girls~~ <3

as a J-pop fan i must say that the newer generation of idol groups straight up SUCK and they all come from 3 labels each with their own unique sound but the problem is that ALL the artists in the label sound identical so i welcome TWICE even if their J-pop songs are horrible

Es triste; que algo que ya debería estar superado; siga como fantasma; haciendo volver al pasado; a un país tan bello como Japón. La falta de conocimiento y malaintencion de alguien, puede mas que la RAZÓN, ENTENDIMIENTO, COMPRENSIÓN.. de que vale tanta tecnología, si siguen viviendo en el pasado,, bueno, ellos se lo pierden,, prefieren la involucion ,, a la evolucion social y moral,,

Actually its not the first them, Hallyu promotions are affected by Korea-Japan ties, previously when the issue of the Islands dispute (Dokdo) came about, there was also Anti Japan and Anti-Korea sentiments which many Japanese viewers call for the national TV stations like Fuji TV to reduce or stop airing K-pop groups. i think maybe ppl who aint into K-pop are upset with their bias groups not getting a chance to appear on the shows and their slots/chances given to K-pop groups instead and blame the TV stations for not "giving the rookies a chance" while letting popular overseas groups take up the air time on national tv in Japan.

Many Japanese do not like Korean music entering the Japanese culture, but the "Hallyu" wave was gaining strength again, but came the Bts who do not know what to wear and spoil everything! Now Twice and TVXQ have to pay for the mistake of a group that does not know how much pain the "hiroshima bomb' has caused in the country! Did not the costume designer warn this boy?

actually its not J-ARMY, there are many Japanese who feel the "invasion of Hallyu pop" is eroding their TV air time from J-pop, and what used to be a japanese tv show for Japanese by Japanese are getting more and more taken over by k-pop groups like TWICE, BTS, and others like Momoland etc also have debut in japan, as with GFriend and Red Velvet etc.

Maybe its jealousy that kpop is coming over to Japan to make money while Jpop isnt expanding overseras as much.

or maybe its a sense of "JAPAN FIRST" like what Trump said about AMERICA First, that Jpop groups should be given the chance to appear on the shows instead of a foreign group.

If thats the case, why dont japanese just make better pop groups? There is a reason why many japanese citizens buy music from korean groups in such large numbers. And I have a feeling the image quality of jpop wont enhance just when useless nationalists cry their hearts out in internet comments.


And you can still guess alot of salty armies are bandwagonning this now.
