    So, TWICE Japanese comebacks always looked like flops. They never managed to get the same amount of hype like the Korean comebacks. I checked Fake&True, and it only had like 23 million views. This has been 2 months and stuff. And they have a lot of Japanese comebacks. This happens like 1 month after each of their Korean comebacks, but I don't see any hype in it. Should JYP do less of them?

    They are always top in album sales with selling 100k and over in the matter of a week or two. Japanese fans are loyal as hell and are the ones that mainly buy TWICE's merch/products.
    Japanese comebacks are crucial for their income.

    What do you mean they flop? They manage to chart in Oricon and always have good sales from Tower Records

    Maybe I just have another meaning of flop. Like I see Korean comebacks doing like 5 times better than Japanese comebacks and stuff.

    Please, Twice is almost more popular in Japan than Korea.

    It would be arguably the stupidest thing JYP could do to neglect Japan comebacks and their fanbase

    YouTube views don't account for anything. Twice has been doing extremely well in Japan sale-wise and charts, which is why the majority of their promos rely thereon upon.

    Twice is not just a top kpop group in Japan, they are one of the top overall group in Japan.

    23m views for Japan MV is not bad, you need to see other groups Japan MV views then you will know.

    Breakthrough + Fake and True might be their best Japanese songs to date, I know a lot of international fans who kind of step around anything but their Korean releases really like them.

    Views for Japanese music video's in general are very low. Twice's views are actually pretty good in comparison.

    If Twice J-songs are considered to be flopping, then every other Kpop (even most Jpop) act is flopping even more
