ITZY share how they're different from TWICE

TWICE, ITZY

ITZY explained how they're different from their fellow JYP Entertainment girl group TWICE.

On February 12, ITZY held a debut showcase for their digital single 'IT'z Different' at Blue Square iMarket Hall in Seoul.

ITZY is the first JYP Entertainment girl group in 4 years following TWICE. They're receiving great attention, as well as pressure in being TWICE's junior group.

Regarding this, ITZY said, "TWICE has lovely and beautiful charms. On the other hand, we believe ITZY can display girl crush charms and bright, young energy."

They continued, "Each of the 5 members has a distinct character of their own. We also have 'teen crush' charms. And we believe we have an aura that other groups do not have."

I think jyp was very clever in debuting a group with clear different image from twice. Itzy new songs are really good and interesting, specially coming jyp. they changed their sound for this group. i wouldnt have guessed that jyp created this group, they are trying out new things. if their live performances are amazing as i think they will be, i will be joining the fandom.

JYP seems to be doing his best to diversify his roster. GOT7 are considered successors to 2PM, TWICE are a "cute" group, Stray Kids are a hip hop-oriented group, and ITZY are a "girl crush" group. Even his subsidiary groups like Day6 (rock band) and Boy Story (Chinese market) and his upcoming Japanese girl group are all meant to cater to different markets.

I think people shouldn't compare ITZY with other groups, whether they're under the same company or not. Every group has its own unique style!

teen crush and young energy seems cheesy and cringy AF but i get it jyp wants this concept and it's true it's different, but their lyrics is so cheesy i hope they will have better song's next time.

Definitely think it's smart to debut a different concept group. Keeps things fresh within JYP and avoids any labeling as a one-trick-pony. Not a fan of Itzy, but I hope they do well and bring success to themselves and JYP.

TWICE will slay girl crush concept anytime if they were given a chance. Who are these rookies to label TWICE like that?!

They are not labeling them, they are saying what their image is for now, they are not saying Twice is a cute group or always have to do cute concepts, they are saying that they have "lovely and beautiful charms", which Twice does. But the fact that Itzy has a different concept than Twice is very obvious, and it is also very clearly JYPE's intention so that Twice and Itzy won't be fighting for the same fans. It's just a smart buisness move to make sure both groups succeed, but that doesn't mean that Twice will never be able to do a girl crush concept.

Please try to think about this rationally, if you had a buisness, would you:

A: Create 2 products that are basically the same thing and have people critisize the 2nd one for being a copy of the first

OR

B: Create 2 different products that appeal to different people


Most people would pick B, and JYPE clearly does because if they didn't they would get the "oh they're just a Twice copycat"-thing. It does NOT mean that Twice will never be able to show something else, or do a new concept, but TWICE is by JYPE's original definition a colorpop group, while ITZY is by JYPE's definition a teen crush group. Don't get mad at Twice's little sister group, remember Chaeryeong from Itzy was in the finale of Sixteen and was almost a Twice member, she is friends with the girls and I don't think Twice would appreaciate their fans hating on their friends. They did nothing wrong, they just said what JYPE has told them their concept is.

Im really happy that they actually stated their differences, because I know another twice group wouldn't be something I would actually think people would be into. Good job JYL

"teen crush" ... honestly JYP? what does that even mean? like which kpop groups target audience isnt teenagers? so dumb

No, it means girl crush mixed with some fresher/younger/cuter influences, it also means they won't do full on "sexy" girl crush - concepts, it's most likely a definition to protect them as minors and also to allow them to be more than just badass.

ONCE's who hate on ITZY need a history lesson, I know most are supportive, but I've seen some who attack them for this statement.

Firstly Chaeryeong from ITZY was very nearly a TWICE member. She competed in Sixteen, and went to the final. So not only could she now have been in Twice, but she is also friends with everyone in Twice, and I honestly don't think Twice would appreaciate their fans hating on their friend who could have been their member.

Secondly ITZY is TWICE's little sister group and JYPE is a family. JYPNation have always been very supportive of eachother, and TWICE has already shown their support for ITZY by promoting them multiple times and sending messages of their support. ITZY has also thanked TWICE for making their debut possible and they thanked all their senior groups multiple times for paving the way for them and supporting them. ITZY talked about meeting their seniors in the hallways and getting messages of support and congratulations for their debut.

Thirdly DO NOT REPEAT THE PAST! TWICE got this kind of hate from Miss A fans when they debuted because Miss A was starting to hit a rough spot, and it was heartbreaking for ONCEs because JYPE had always been supportive of eachother. But many Miss A fans saw Twice as a replacement of Miss A, and the reason Miss A stopped promoting as a group even though there were other reasons for this. So don't repeat the past and hate on TWICE's little sister group.

Twice have sent messages of support and mentioned them in livestreams. Also people keep forgetting this but Chaeryeong from ITZY went to the final of Sixteen and was very nearly a Twice member, so she is close friends with Twice.

If you like Twice, do not hate on Itzy. It is okay to not stan them, but respect them. Chaeryeong from ITZY was very nearly a Twice member, she competed in Sixteen with the girls for the chance to debut as Twice and went to the finals. This means she is close friends with Twice. I don't think Twice would appreciate their fans hating on their friends. ITZY is their little sister group, and Twice has sent out messages of support and promoted Itzy and Itzy thanked Twice multiple times during their showcase.
