Really happy for Twice! Like to think of them as goodwill ambassadors in Korea-Japan relations. I think its especially meaningful for Mina, as her comeback gathers momentum.

(SIDEBAR) I was hoping I*Zone be invited (so Sakura & co would 'return' triumphantly), but that can't happen with the current Mnet mess. I didn't know much about AKB48 before but I thought the company participated in P48 (not just to promote) but also to learn. So they could form a new 'highly skilled team' HST48 in 2021, led by Sakura. (Would have been nice to bring some change into the system).
