    Twice name holds a lot more value than Got7, so they might be less likely to give it up... but on the other hand not sure how much value they could get out of the name without having the girls, so who knows

    Honestly I know Jihyo said that they want to focus on group activities but I think that's the company speech. The other members practically stayed quiet when they asked them if they agree with that. Its probably stipulated in their contract that they can't do solo without JYPE approval. Its shame tbh because I think they'd benefit a lot from solo activities. We'll see what happens with renewals but JYPE doesn't have a good record.

    I like how people still think this has anything to do about another suzy. Y'all are stuck in like 2016-2017 thinking. Twice isnt MissA at all and for having absolutely zero solo promotion all members are recently popular. I think a reason they dont have solo stuff is partly because the girls really arent focused on this, Once have constantly asked the girls for solo stuff and while some have expressed interest most also highlight how they are most comfortable continuing working as a group. Hopefully we see some branch out this year.

    JYPE is shit at management don’t get me wrong at all. I hope to god Twice can leave JYP one day and maybe form their own company as a group. But to the solo activity I dont think it is entirely due to the company.

    in the end, the group promo thing hurt vocalists the most. Every kpop vocalists need individual activities, a solo song, anything, it is how they shine. Did Jihyo even have a full song by herself in 6 years?
    i have a feeling Jihyo Jeongyeon and Lia will nope the fuck out the first chance they get

    Perhaps, but I wonder in a few years will she look back at that decision and feel a lot of regret. I mean her last two songs tanked and she joined Black Label in what? September 2018 and has put out 2 songs and 1 b-side in like 28 months? No real TV gigs, no tours or concerts, no albums or EP's...

    She pretty much is just Teddy's pet project he tosses a song to once a year...why in the fuck would anyone want Twice members near this guy?

    I really hope the girls start getting solo works if they want to ,which they probably do.

    Twice has so much potential, alot more than now if they get these opportunities but jyfuckingp is holding them back!!!

    I want to see the girls do solo stuff be it music, or acting or modeling and I'm sure their are alot of people who'd love to work with them!! And as a group and individually they're strong enough for that

    So the only reasons why it's not happening is either the girls don't want to or JYP doesn't want them to
    And my bet is the latter!!!

    If y’all think about it, RV and BP members are now getting solo promos, I’m sure at least some twice members want solo promos as well

    I hear that all the time but Twice is already a well established group at this point. There is no risk for Twice to go to irrelevancy because a member becomes bigger than the group. At this point, twice as a group is bigger than any individual member of twice so there is literally no threat for them to become overshadowed by a member.

    It's not just being overshadowed by a member, the problem with Miss A was that Suzy's schedule superceded her groups meaning if she had an activity then Miss A couldn't do anything as a group at the same time (even though other companies manage it just fine). So knowing JYP crap management through the years who's to say for example 1 or 2 members are busy at a given time that the group wouldn't be able to have a CB? Maybe JYP is trying to avoid such a situation by having no solo to interfere with group

    JYP already made his money at this point, so he could care even less.

    When they leave, the company will just debut another group to exploit, maybe two if they go really cheap.

    Even YGE is better on that sense.

    JYPE is one of the most controlling companies when it comes to their groups and idols. If the members don't have solo activities you can bet it has all to do with the management.

    It is cheaper and more lucrative for the company to push them as a group.

    Two years is a long time. Speculating is not going to help the case. Twice is no Got7 and MissA either.
