Ryan Bang explains why TWICE's 'TT' is unfit for broadcast in the Philippines

"TT" is unfit for broadcast in the Philippines, according to Ryan Bang.

Ryan Bang was a guest on the December 11 airing of MBC Every1's 'Video Star,' he is a famous South Korean TV personality in the Philippines. On the program, Ryan Bang shared, "'TT' is actually unfit for broadcast in the Philippines." 

He explained,  "In Filipino, 'TT' tends to mean male private part. It's especially more embarrassing because there's a part in the choreography where they point down there." 

MC Park Na Rae turned to choreographer Lia Kim, who also joined as the guest, and asked, "Was this intended?" Lia Kim replied, "No, it was created based on the crying emoticon [ㅠㅠ]." 

Ryan Bang commented, "I think it's more easily misunderstood in the Philippines because the crying emoticon doesn't exist there."

This is honestly why I can never get into "TT," it's just too awkward. I don't care if it's "childish" or "immature," but if you grew up knowing "titi" = "penis," you can't just not think about it anymore. lol

Well that would make sense , in Germany it tends to mean "Breasts" and we also don't use the TT as crying emoticon and their hand gesture is exactly on chest hight. Haha.

actually its the same for a lot of songs and such, certain words and phrase may be offensive in other cultures and languages, its like how many people feel that Jennie's Solo, has a phrase which sounded like "Bitch", I am very sure, it was intended to sound similar, even though i am WELL aware its actually means Bright in Korean. but i find TEddy who chose to use that word is aware of the similarily to its sounding, and probably had intended it, as the image of the song is like a bad-ass girl. so it probably fits the song.

You cant just dismiss something like this just because it has another meaning in the Philippines. If people dont take the time to learn about other cultures and things like this, it only leads to more ignorance. For example, 네가 is oftentimes confused to be the "n" word in english by americans, but it is important to stop perpetuating ignorance and learn about it rather than just dismissing it. A simple explanation is all that is needed to stop this ignorance

That's dumb. In English speaking countries people constantly mistake 네가 in K-pop for a serious racial slur but we just explain and move on.

It is, though not surprising. Philippines is known to be a Christian country, so chances are some ignorant prude found the song to be sexually inappropriate or something and decided to ban it.

it’s funny that he even talked about this considering twice had so many chart topping hits already. why even mentioned things like this? because he got nothing to talk about? how about you talk about why you keep on delaying your military enlistment because you are afraid you will lose your career in the philippines? or talk about how you were called out by the philippine government tax agency for not paying income tax in the philippines before, and only able to pay through the help of Vice Ganda(filipino celebrity)there’s so many koreans words that are unfit in other countries like naega or niga or even names with “Tae”(poop in the philippines), so it is something that is common. but why mention twice and “TT”? it is so disgusting to even share it with korean people.
