I don't like their music honestly, but the girls are the finest right now in newer kpop scene.

maybe a lot of Jpop fans like twice and vice versa is because of the japanese trio, sana, mina, momo

the jpop fans check them japanese members, and they're attracted to their awesome looks

the kpop fans check if there's any jpop acts that as good or as visually satisfying as twice. and voila, they become fans of jpop

I dont. Most "jpop fans" who like twice here on OH are partially Kpop fans too. I havent seen many jpop only or even jpop idols only fans who are into twice

Where is this happening? Here? I haven't really seen that to be the case here. I don't think jpop fans here are the type of people that would listen to a kpop group just because there are japanese members in them. I personally don't care about that and don't care about them in general. 

 

The real question is probably why are kpop fans drawn to these japanese members. 

 

I was a pure jpop fan even since the early days of tokyohive, hallyu8. I mainly posted in the japanese section back in 2013.  Mainly 48 groups, HP, Scandal, Kattun, HSJ, Exile, 3JSB, e-grils, ldh groups etc. even j-actors, j-actresses etc.

I posted mostly in the LDH, 48/46, idols, actreses pictures forums here on OH back then. 

Until I discovered Twice on November 2015. Main reason? Because there were japanese members. Basically Twice made me a kpop fan, and I now like lots of kpop groups.

 

So it is completely not true that some j-pop fans here are not drawn to twice because they have japanese members, case in point being me.

Don't believe me? well you can search my archived posts here, though its been so long since i've posted in the japanese section tho

I'm always been a fan of both K-Pop and J-Pop... Honestly I'm just a girls group hoe. I've been a massive wota for various J-idol groups, a sone, a Mixer, a blackjack, a Wonderful, a MeU, a Queen, etc. When Sixteen first teased, I was definitely interested that Sana sang E-Girls' Follow Me. That's when I started paying attention to Twice. Then the organic vegetables and LOA happened, I became a Once. So nope, I'm not someone who is introduced to K-Pop because of Twice, though they did spark interest back in me.

I have no doubt those japanese girls were chosen for the purpose of drawing in a new audience. Same goes the other non-korean members in kpop groups. It's like Hollywood casting a chinese actor hoping it would help their movie perform in china. Most jpop fans here just want good music regardless of language and who sings it though. 

 

It also sounds like you just like kpop now. You initially looked into Twice because of the japanese girls but you liked the group and moved onto liking other kpop groups. Those other groups don't have japanese members. So are those japanese girls really why you like Twice then? In a way they are why you like Twice but you wouldn't stick around and continue to follow them if you didn't like the group and their music. You fell for their trap! 

 

Also I recognize your name and know you've been around for a while  :lol:

I'm a Jpop and Kpop fan and not necessarily like Twice. Although I like one of their song, TT, but that's it. And despite the J-trinity, no never been fan of them either. (But my one of my sister is a fan and pushing me to stan them, along with NCT.)

hm. I haven't noticed that many Jpop fans getting into Twice in the first place. 

 

They don't seem like Jpop to me whatsoever either. 

this.

 

I think they girls are cute but most people in the thread saying they like TWICE are Kpop fans lol

Not sure why so many people on this thread are surprised about this statement LOL maybe Op should have said "why do so many Jpop idol fans like TWICE" because it's mostly idol fans who like them (not the ones who like Jpop singers etc.) and this is actually true since I talk with fans of japanese idols (outside of this forum) and I was surprised at how many of them got into TWICE. I don't know if it's because TWICE has japanese members or because they have great fanservice or anything else, but it's true that they're quite popular with international fans of japanese idols. Obviously not with ALL of them so there will be some that don't care or don't like them. but it still doesn't change the fact that I've seen lots of Jpop idol fans who got into TWICE. Even myself I always liked both Kpop & Jpop idols but at some point I didn't care much for Kpop and just focused on Jpop idols and I got back into Kpop thanks to TWICE.

Do they? I know I don't. Sure it's not just that many Twice fans have become J-pop fans, too?

You're onto something, I think a lot of Kpop fans might like TWICE, fall for the Japanese Members and then research Jpop because of them.

Their cute songs are similar to J-pop idols

But I think the biggest reason is "there are Japanese members"

do you mean with international jpop fans?

 

because if you literally mean with japanese youth (who they're starting to get popular with) then there's too many reasons to narrow it down lol
