    Why Do You Love TWICE?

    [​IMG]

    Hello Friends!

    It's Emanresu.

    Your friendly neighborhood Once and Tzuyu lover.

    Come to offer a positive counterpoint to a recent thread that was dredged up from the depths of the forum.

    Let's all share our positive appreciation of TWICE.

    Why do you love them?

    Tell us!

    Why Emanresu Loves TWICE:


    I'm a Once.

    An unapologetic and unashamed Once.

    I found my way to TWICE via the back door.

    First I liked Tzuyu, the Angel from Taiwan. Then I added Sana Squirrel. Then came Alien Dahyun. Eventually I found myself caring about the group as a whole and following their activities. Then came the music (which I enjoy).

    As many of you know, I am more about visuals and personality than music. I love it all to be sure (the music included), but for me kpop's primary appeal is its many points of interaction available to fans. Following idols and their respective careers through their various activities, be they the performances themselves, or all the various side activities like hosting, variety, acting, social media, etc., is the main draw for me.

    Enter TWICE. A girl group uniquely positioned for maximum exposure in the respect I've just laid out.

    They are Korea's most popular current girl group. And for good reason.

    As much as they get ragged on for alleged lack of talent, there exists no other group with quite the same coalescing of forces. The group is a perfect storm in some respects. They are all visually attractive. They all have unique and charming personalities that appeal to the public. They put out catchy and appealing tracks. They also have a cohesive dynamic, with all members playing off one another well for the camera and thus our entertainment. Finally, the group benefited from great timing. They came when they were most needed. Korea needed a new prize girl group. JYP delivered.

    Another important aspect to TWICE that I think is crucial for the "NGG" like success that SNSD enjoyed and now TWICE is enjoying: TWICE has a broad appeal. And in many respects a relatively wholesome appeal. They're young. They're cute. They're fun. They aren't explicitly sexual generally. Their music is very mainstream pop. Like SNSD, TWICE is the kind of group everyone from your little sister, to your brother, to your mother, to your uncle, hell to your grandma can enjoy.

    The first three mentioned (visuals, personality, good tracks) might as well be the trifecta for Girl Group Success 101, hell perhaps Group Success 101 (regardless of gender). Be pretty. Be charming. Put out music people like. Sounds simple AF doesn't it? Well it ain't and TWICE does it perhaps better than any other group going currently.


    Anyway, just my two cents.

    Yours Truly,

    Emanresu

    :)


    And in case anyone is wondering....do you even like their music? Yes. The answer is yes. 1 to 10 was my favorite track of 2016. Quite of few TWICE tracks are high on my list of favorite recent songs.

    *going to pretend that you did not just copy and paste this from the Why Do You Hate TWICE thread*

    What I like most about twice is their personas because they are genuinely nice girls. Nothing about them even seems manufactured in my opinion. I smile so much just from looking at their photo cards.

    Damn you caught me.

    After posting it there (I've since deleted it), I figured a better and more constructive way to get my point across would be to set up an entirely new thread.

    One that wasn't confrontational and came from a positive place.

    :)

    I don't love twice, but I really respect them. The hate they get is too much for any person their age, the fact that they work super hard and nonstop and still get bashed for being popular without 'doing anything' is sad, they also remind me of snsd when they just debuted. They also seem like sweet kids. Their songs aren't always my type tho.

    I love the fact that despite being a bunch of humble and down to earth girls they get people riled up enough to go super saiyan keyboard warriors over them

    I've liked twice since SIXTEEN o wasn't really expecting much from the show I mostly just watched it out of curiosity. But I fell in love with their personalities and the fact that they have fun and want to be performing. Even if they aren't top notch vocals they go on stage and light it up like they always belonged there and I enjoy that in a group.
    They are all sweetie pies (especially Jihyo) and honestly kill people with kindness because they are nothing but nice even when people are mean.

    When I came out of my kpop hiatus, I got into more girl groups and focused on them. When it came to Twice, I had fun, catchy music that made certain parts of my day not as mundane. The songs don't feel heavy and they don't take a whole lot out of me personally. I'm a naturally optimistic person and I like positive vibes of things like Cheer Up.

    Some days, I just want to blast happy, uppity, bubbly music and have at it. I feel girl groups do better in those regards.

    Especially Twice.

    Honestly, what's not to love about Twice? They are cute, humble and sweet girls that also have great music and personalities. They've been through a huge scandal (Tzuyu's) and they managed to come on top of it. They keep on working hard and they keep on improving. They also know that they ain't the best and they are willing to work hard for it. Honestly, they should be taken example from. not many are willing to work even harder and not many are staying humble after they've won so many things

    They are nice, sweet girls that always manage to put a smile on my face. Their songs are riduculously catchy to me and brighten my mood whenever they start playing. And aside from the crazy Onces, I've never had a problem with their fans ;)
    Also, No Sana No Life tbh

    I love Twice because their music is catchy, and their videos and concepts are always entertaining and fun.

    Plus, the girls are sweet, hardworking, and cute. :merongk::merongk::merongk:

    I like them because their music cures depression.
