[Reaction of J-netz in response to whether TWICE is really as popular in Japan:
[+1748, -18] They’re just force-feeding.
[+756, -20] I’ve never seen or heard of them.
[+312, -2] Correction, they’re the most popular group in South Korea but in Japan, only a small portion of K-POP fans, and the media who received advertisement fees are making a big deal out of it. K-POP is popular to a small group of people but the news saying “People all over Japan are…” is false. Don’t misunderstand.
[+222, -5] If they were active in South Korea, became popular, their name became well-known, and they gained fans in Japan, I would understand. But they’re not well known and haven’t done sh*t but are “very popular in Japan!” Aren’t they’re being too blatant?
[+174, 15] SNSD’s Taeyeon, Tiffany, and Seohyun, and although she’s an ex-member, Jessica are good at singing. But TWICE who is supposedly going to “surpass” SNSD is very lacking when it comes to singing. The leader? Is treated like she is the best singer, but she just has volume but isn’t good."
LOL BTS&Ikon got dragged into it as well:
[+644, -57] I bet they’re gonna use the same gimmicks as BTS to sell (high touch/handshake events) and brag that they won against someone. I feel bad for Kame and Yamapi, I hate BTS, all they do it high touch/handshake events.
[+69, -6] Last week they (a program called ZIP) were introducing a K-POP group that I’ve never heard of by saying “They’re a globally popular group that surpasses Justin Bieber”. It’s very clearly a lie but they’re force feeding us with it.
[+328, -5] We don’t need a popularity that is manufactured like the South Korean group that won the rookie award from Record Taisho (Ikon right?).
—->[+62, -2] That was the first and last time I saw them… What was with that, seriously lol. That group couldn’t even be force-fed to us.]
^above is someone post in bashing thread. They really shouldn't media play being so popular in Japan.
Maybe original Japanese song is better. But then I kinda like mine kyun by AOA. It wasn't as bad as Twice TT.
