The Beginning of Twice's Downfall



I have been dreading this day since Twice blew up with "Cheer Up" in 2016. By having three really fucking hot Japanese members, it didn't take a genius to know that Twice would eventually have Japanese promotions. However, Twice really blew up, and quickly became Korea's national girl group in 2016 with the releases of "Cheer Up" and "TT". Japanese promotions were imminent, and the results so far are worse than I expected.

Japan cannot do bubblegum pop worth a fucking shit. You either get the anime-opening songs (which I liked as a teenager, but not now), or the shit that panders to your little sibling who is in first grade, or those creepy old guys who love this shit. There is really no in between for Jpop when they try this shit. This is the same garbage that panders to the people who like the 48/46 groups who have been ruining Jpop even more for the past decade. There is good Jpop out there, but you have to dig through so much shit, and the majority of the shit is the shit Twice is releasing in Japan.

I love Twice, but there's no way I'm going to happy about seeing these girls spend the next five years focusing on Japan and probably giving us three Korean comebacks in that time frame, because history tends to repeat itself. After BoA, DBSK, SNSD, and Kara became popular in Japan, that's where 90% of their focus goes. It makes sense from a business standpoint since Japan is the world's second largest music market and music groups have a short shelf life, but just expect more and more shit like this from Twice until the group disbands.

  2. When a song starts with HEY SWEETIE SWEETIE, you know a Trainfuck of a clusterwreck is about to follow.

  3. I believe the majority of good Japanese songs are hidden in the anime/game opening songs. If anyone plays the Atelier series yall know what I'm talking about.

  4. As long as they only do this in Japan, I can gladly ignore it.

    Japan is non-canon for K-POP.

  5. I bet this is a troll, but I'm still gonna say it, after they debuted in Japan they had 2 Korean comebacks and one special MV, and are probably gonna make a comeback in March. Calm down lol, JYP needs to stop coming back every two months, sometimes even less lol.
