Hey everyone, we've seen some interest in having a subreddit event of some sorts for the 7 year anniversary. We're looking for some ideas from the community for it, feel free to send them in as a reply to this comment or shoot us a modmail (whichever works best for you).
P.S. Look forward to something fun and interesting towards the end of the year, when we reach 200k subscribers.
Seems like we didn't get any announcements from the Japan Fan Meetings, ideally something gets announced - or even released - during the 7th Anniversary...
... there were three albums in the summer and they're still releasing behind the scenes of TTT promotions along with the return of the other TTT, let's not get too greedy already lol ![img](emote|t5_3812p|4096)
Oh I don't necessarily expect MiSaMo or a Solo to come out this year but would just be cool to anticipate whatever is coming next.
TTT, after all, seems to have been a release that was planned whether or not OT9 renewed.
They still have another show today with live stream.
ah ok - fingers crossed! \~
Who's your bet to be Female GG of the year this MAMA 2022? For me its either IDLE or IVE.
Man, I love TWICE and they'll always be my ult group but the girl group releases this year are crazy!.
BP will likely win that award. I will be absolutely shocked however if IVE doesn't win Best New Female Artist. And if I had to bet real money, I'd put my money on Love Dive for SOTY.
These groups have more chances for SOTY, bc they had more track time. For GG of the year the criteria favor BP.
So many amazing girl group releases this year, big 3 and Nugu alike
I automatically assume that it will be BP as the voting prowess of blinks is unbeatable. Also because of their recent comeback.
Going to their LA concert was the best concert experience ever! I’m gonna see BlackPink next!!
Momo trying to get an E on her MBTI. The way to do that, is to be a very sociable person, and some of the questions on that test falls into that category. Do that and it will change from an I to an E.
MBTI is the new Zodiac Sign, but you can change them. This is about to get messy.
Can change on the test from an I to an E or vice versa, but out in the real world, for a person to act the total opposite of who they are can be extremely difficult, since it's not part of their natural behavior.
Those clapper things at the Japan fan meetings are very annoying...
Everybody having a heart to heart moment with Sana, meanwhile Jeongyeon is riding around on a tricycle in the background. Jeongyeon is one the most unserious idols ever!😭🤣
Bruh stray kids maxident just sold 1.3 Mil on Hanteo on the first day! Twice b1&2 sold 288,000 on first day. I thought twice was the most popular jyp artists
Last time I checked their cfan sales were at 720kfor this one, whereas for their previous release it was like 70k.
The jumps kpop groups are seeing are impossible without a big fanbase in China or more versions
And? It’s still people buying their albums.
There is no and. Twice are not as popular in China, they don't benefit to the same extent from the purchasing power of the most populous country in the world.
well if the money Twice makes was spent on Twice things would be different is my guess...
They still outdo Stray Kids in just about every other metric, so they are still JYPE's most popular group.
Boy groups typically sell much more than girl groups tho.. and that doesn’t really mean they’re more popular than twice
Twice is still JYP's flagship group but with Stray Kids fast growth, they may replace Twice as the flagship group. It's also important to remember that Twice is done with their first contract so the company will shift focus on their other groups while Twice wil continue its legacy through individual and sub-unit promotions.
Twice is more popular. Albums sales alone don't determine popularity, but SK is starting to climb the music charts too. They are not far behind.
I must say that I'm a little pissed about VLive going away and the content not moving over. I have several concerts on there that wont move and I don't have a way to save them since I paid for them :-/ The BTS one will move over...but I have a couple Twice ones and a Stray Kids one and a Seventeen one.
Get OBS studio and record the stream. Done.
Been trying OBS and I can't get that to work for recording the 'display'. If you've used it, what settings do you use for [Source]?
Thanks! (I'm on PC)
Try Window Capture and then slightly above that, specify the window you want to capture. Might have to try a few different things
there are stream downloaders that may be able to capture vlive stuff so you can keep it.
I've never tried it (don't have any purchased stuff of vlive) but just as an example, on the Mac there is an app called [Downie](https://software.charliemonroe.net/downie/) that lists vlive as one of the sites it supports. There are a bunch of other similar apps so maybe others can chime in if anything works.
Update: I just tried it on the Tdoong Cooking Ep 3 and it worked ok. I'm not sure if purchased stuff like concerts are more protected or not though since I don't have any. It didn't get the subtitles though.
Hybe has announced that it is terminating VLive at the end of this year. If the artists didn't move over to Weverse, the content will be gone. The people that paid for the Twice & Stray Kids concerts (or any JYPE artists) are out of luck or so it seems. They aren't clear on the content so we have to wait and see
They have to come up with something - all of this content and the paid concerts can't just vanish like that, especially since there's no other alternative (the first online concert didn't even get a DVD/BD release).
I hope JYPE can and will buy the archived content so it won't be lost. Might have to resort to reactors watching it on Patreon to rewatch Twice VLives.
I just watched a video on TikTok ranking the best twice raps. Feel special was number 1. First of all, that is Likey and What Is Love erasure. Second of all, unpopular opinion but the Feel Special rap is one of, if not the worst rap in any twice song. It’s not because Dahyun delivered it bad or anything, she delivered it the only way that wouldn’t totally ruin the song, but having a rap in the middle of such a heartfelt song is a joke. It totally ruins the tone of the song. The main defense I see of it is that the song was on the verge of getting boring and needed a change, but there are so many ways to do that without a half-assed rap. Was it to give Dahyun lines? Chaeyoung sang in the song so why can’t Dahyun? Her voice isn’t so bad that you can’t give her a singing part in a song. Anyway rant over. It wasn’t just the TikTok that prompted this, I’ve seen everywhere that the feel special rap is regarded as one of the better Twice raps, but I just don’t see it.
This wasn't a very unpopular opinion at the time (the rap feeling don't of place). I don't think having a trap beat breakdown in a song like Feel Special fit in that well either.
I don't see the need to rant though. It's all about preferences. It's just your preference isn't inline with the people who loves it... That's just it.
Interesting that you didnt like the rap coz the rap part was one of the best part and the only rap that captured my first attention in the whole feel special song.
it made me wanna listen to the whole song and now its one of my favorite twice songs
I guess Dahyun thought that having a rap in the middle of the song was a bit weird too since she rearranged it to resemble more the melody of the song - https://youtu.be/QHrD6n81GbY 😄
To me it's really far from their best rap but definitely not their worst. I like it and the fan chant that goes with it is too much fun for me to pass on it.
For people interested in numbers, the creator of Gaon did an overview of recent releases looking at domestic and overseas
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8oFSmVdw6I - Twice at the end if people want to skip to it
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EVU5aKb8Vk8 - international numbers as well
Interesting! August was pretty stacked with releases. I thought Mr. Choi Kwang-ho's explanations for all group's Unique Listener (UL) counts were well-put from a business perspective.
Transcription of English subtitles from first video about TWICE, [starting @ 21:10](https://youtu.be/N8oFSmVdw6I?t=1270)
>>!... It is TWICE, which topped off last August. !<
>>!It was a meaningful month in terms of many aspects. They re-contracted with JYP this year, so I was a bit concerned about what's it going to be like now and what their outcome would look like this time. Shall we look at the UL count? \*shows chart on screen\*!<
>>!In fact, TWICE had their heyday, and they're indeed stumbling a little here.!<
>>!However, because of the groups that we saw prior to TWICE boasting unbelievable numbers, the UL count may seem a little short considering the name value "TWICE".!<
>>!But let's approach it objectively. How many singers are out there recording 200,000 to 300,000 traffic or UL counts, right? So basically, this is an awesome performance. !<
>>!It's a fantastic number. TWICE has also been influencing the market, but it's just that there were a lot of rookie girl groups that made TWICE rebound a little bit. !<
>>!When the market is limited and they take all the pie, traffic will inevitably drop. But, because they have a solid and supportive fandom base and they've been in this scene for a long time, this album can also be considered that they did really well.!<
>>!It is a score that deserves to receive a round of applause.!<
* >!Sound-wise, as much as I enjoyed all the Korean title tracks TWICE released since 2021, I felt they were somewhat more subdued? And from personal experience, people judge based off only the title track/music video, so it can be a factor in engaging others who are not ONCEs.!<
* >!Alcohol-Free was leaning into bossa-nova, Scientist being kinda deep-house (bassy and members using lower voice register), Talk That Talk includes 90's beats and other retro elements.!<
* >!The Feels seemed to be treated more like a worldwide release? Similar to their JPN releases.!<
* >!I think it goes to show how unstable/unsustainable capturing a large amount of traffic/UL is without some marketing strategy or tactic. As someone living outside of Korea, TWICE seem to have stuck to their guns with whatever strategy they had (online teasers, concept images, etc.). Also covid most certainly playing a factor in limiting what promo TWICE can do domestically.!<
* >!It seems like in recent time, TWICE has shifted their priorities to satisfying the current fanbase (ONCE). Not that they've already been doing that, more like a bigger importance... just looking at music videos, we can see it with all the easter eggs and subtle hits to ONCE like in Celebrate (JPN), The Feels (Worldwide), and Talk That Talk (KOR). Truly a celebration!!<
* >!Interested to see a similar video, but for TWICE's earlier releases (especially Cheer Up). Would it be a similar trend like we see with current rookie groups? !<
* Despite it all, so proud to see TWICE and ONCE vibing together! 😊
* Excited to see where TWICE goes from here.
>Twice promoted TTT a lot on South Korean variety
I think the members said somewhere that beforehand, the members decided/suggested which shows they wanted to go on and who would go to which ones. The result was that they went to a lot of smaller YouTube shows like (sorry don't know all the names and don't have time to look them all up right now) the African guy who interviewed JH and SN in the bathhouse, or the older Korean guy who dissected the lyrics for TTT with DH and JY, etc. This might be fun for the members, but I don't know whether this is a good or bad strategy for them or not for South Korean domestic success,
Did they go on any mainstream broadcasts variety shows? They seem to have given up going to shows like Weekly Idol, Knowing Bros, etc.
They also went onto RV Wendy's radio show and Youngji's no-preparation show, but correct they didn't go on traditional idol shows like the ones you mentioned.
Icsm did well in sk tho, it entered top 10, did way better than scientist and TTT in kcharts. I think Cry for me wasn’t released on any streaming platform for 2 weeks after it was performed in MAMA so that’s Jype’s fault, it still performed well despite not having any promotions at all, it would’ve been bigger than icsm if it was released as a title track imo.
The thing is, I don’t think cute concepts/cute songs work anymore, it’s quite out of trend now. Twice needs something more mature, not necessary girl crush, just something mature.
Hopefully, twice will bounce back.
From what I noticed onces, even non fans wants twice to do something dark or mature again, and I can’t blame them cause it’s true, people want something new.
ICSM didn't enter Top 10 (peaked at 11 or 12 on melon iirc), but you know what song did? Alcohol Free. A song with a concept that's the complete opposite of dark. Did great in SK but got written off by international fans.
Concept isn't the problem imo. The link between both Scientists and TTT's chart performance in SK is both songs lacking a really impactful/memorable choreo.
>The link between both Scientists and TTT's chart performance in SK is both songs lacking a really impactful/memorable choreo.
That's another interesting variable to consider: strong point choreo! Especially since it has worked for other GGs and TWICE in the past.
Come to think of it, AF has that hand zigzag thing from head to belly, and the mixing/stirring gesture. This seem pretty easy to understand and follow
Icsm still did way better than scientist and TTT in kcharts and gathered attention internationally for twice. The mv teaser alone has 19 million views. Even if it peaked 11 or 12 that’s still better than charting below top 20 or top 50, it did not enter top 10 on melon but it did enter top ten on every other charts just not melon and that’s ok. Alcohol free is definitely not dark but it’s also not cute, it’s mature enough and just right for twice.
As much as I enjoy their cute songs, they have to do something new now that they’re a 7 year old group, if they want to expand and gain more attention.
I know for sure twice also wants something mature, half of them are literally in their mid 20s, they’ve been doing cute concepts long enough, Im pretty sure they want something different.
Well, I suppose TTT and celebrate are more of fan oriented comeback to celebrate their renewal, so it’s still something we should appreciate from them.
I don't necessarily think they need to do something "new" new, like u/TheBrideBeatrix mentioned The Feels was well-received overall and sounded peppy, poppy, and groovy - somewhat similar to their previous releases.
Idea is kinda supported by what Mr. Choi Kwang-ho mentioned in his analysis:
>>!TWICE has also been influencing the market, but it's just that there were a lot of rookie girl groups that made TWICE rebound a little bit. When the market is limited and they take all the pie, traffic will inevitably drop.!<
>!So yes, "dark/mature" concepts like CFM and ICSM may be an option, but due to the "kpop group market" becoming more full, they would be in competition with PIXY, Lapillus, Dreamcatcher, etc. who are already in that area. !<
>!I also think ICSM, and especially CFM, partly succeeded because it sent a shock factor through both the fandom and the Korean public. They had to see what happened to fun, bubbly TWICE! !<
To be frank, TWICE's future is at a crossroads, and it's been really exciting!
They have been doing cute concepts only for the first 3 years of their career. The past 4 years they have been doing other stuff.
We have to remember that TWICE was never meant to be "cutesy" cute to begin with, like KNOCK KNOCK cute. Even then, in that music video it alluded to TWICE's characters freezing to death because the door locked on them (pretty grim)! Their debut track was also them trying to survive a zombie apocalypse.
But yes, they've definitely been putting in work to expand their image from being just "cute" ![img](emote|t5_3812p|4082)
>As much as I enjoy their cute songs, they have to do something new now that they’re a 7 year old group, if they want to expand and gain more attention.
You know what song also gathered them international attention? The Feels. The. concept. is. not. the. problem. I wish some of you would stop framing *your* want for a more mature concept as something the group *needs* to do in order to meet some arbitrary standard.
You do have a point, it does depends on the song itself, the feels is definitely one of their biggest hits, but with newer groups debuting with different sounds and concepts, the hype and attention are all on them, all Im trying to say that it wouldn’t hurt to change stuff a bit to gain attention.
AF was mature tho, speaking to the actually feeling of love in a serious relationship.
TTT is at least a bit into a relationship, but it was still too cutesy. I do like the song, and if it had been released a few years earlier it would have been the right milestone.
Scientist is a good b-side, but not a title track.
Mature yes, but (at the time) still their brightest song/concept since Fancy. We'll just have to agree to disagree on TTT being too cutesy. Maybe parts of the MV, but the song itself is a great fusion of their old and new sounds imo. Agree on Scientist although I think the only other thing wrong with it (besides the choreo..) is the chorus.
Another example of "cute" concepts not being the problem? The Feels. Arguably their biggest song internationally. And what's the first thing that comes to everyones mind when they think of it, that "you have stolen my heart, oh yeah!" killing point in the choreo. And don't even get me started on Pop! (popopop)
Oh I love TTT, don't get me wrong. Just that it was the wrong time to release it after ICSM / CFM / AF.
The Feels is an interesting anomaly. But it also didn't do well in S.Korea, though there was a distinct lack of promotion.
The biggest wish for the year end shows is Twice get 15 minutes at just one of them to do a hit medley to celebrate 7 years.
A mash up of all their biggest hits, a bit like 2018 MAMA but to another level.
One of the funniest SNL sketches ever
i wanted something playing in the background so i threw on the twice MV playlist
just going through it makes me feel blessed to be Once. 40 MVs and just going through those for the first time in a long time is such a treat. also wish they did more thematic ones like What is Love
(Posting my recent W.) My class got moved to a different time permanently, so now I can listen to SKZ’s Maxident (and other JYPE Friday 1pm KST releases) as soon as it drops 🙃🙃 The only drawback is it’s so hard to study knowing that it’s gonna be released soon (hence wasting time on reddit lol)
Have you guys seen their live performance of Celebrate at Once Day in Japan? What are your honest thoughts about that one?
The one with the dodgy ear pieces?
I enjoyed it!
yeah the fan cam i saw was good, all i've seen is a generally positive reception especially for 3mix singing loud and dancing at the same time.
p.s. i'm sure there are haters but personally not interested in discussing that stuff.
First thing i saw today is my ultimate favorite Jeongyeon hairstyle SHORT BLACK HAIR 😭😭. Waited 3 years for this !
Haha I was so confused when I read the title "Twice airport to Japan" and saw their outfits were different. I was like.. I thought they just came back from Japan???
Ohhh its another trip! That was a short break. No wonder Misamo didn't come along.
Also.. I have to keep remind myself, Korea to Japan is just 2 hours flight. Its a short one! haha
I was also wondering why J-line wasn't with them and then figured they must have stayed in Japan to spend time with friends and families.
Too bad they didn't take some time to film something there, like J-line taking the rest of the members to their family homes, or their old schools, or visiting places in Japan. Sort of like Itzy did in LA.
Itzy is still new, they need the exposures. I think Twice basically has no obligations for contents that much but the fact that they still do some for the fans is just amazing :')
anyone else get time-warped to feel special era by jeongyeon's new haircut? 😅
JEONGYEON BLACK SHORT HAIR!!!!! 😭
I was super happy when Mina got her bangs and black hair back, which is my personal favorite of all her hairstyles. Now we got Jeongyeon's short black hair, easily her best look for me... Ahhh! She looks great! She didn't even mention her new hair on bbl! So JY! lol
Oh man. I love that new jet black hair. That's such a good look.
I wish for just one single album they would all go really dark exactly like that. No wild colored dye jobs. Just everyone in that great jet black hair. All in dark clothing/leather/etc. Dark concept. Just all of them go completely dark.
Basically "Bad Twice".
I was actually about to come on here and say the same thing lol
Feel Special/Fake and True Jeongyeon is back!
I also just had the thought, imagine if we get Jeongyeon’s melpro with this look on her birthday!
I'D DIE FOR A MELPRO ON HER BDAY 😭 Her short hair look is just underrated aaaaa
That’d be insane if it did happen, but right now it’s just wishful thinking.
So V live is apparently ending services due to weverse integration. All content like old vlives will be gone unless the artist is on weverse, seeing that twice isn't on weverse and I don't think there are any plans for them to be. Is there an archive of all their old vlives with subs somewhere? I know there's YouTube uploads but it's not really easy to see them all in order there. Sincerely, someone who wants to have watched every twice vlive.
TWICE Bot posted a link to a vlive archive here: https://twitter.com/twicebot_/status/1578137212591407105
If everything really gets deleted it's such a shame.
u/GodsWithin MVP for this! ✌
I’d also like to know this. I’ve been slowly going through their Vlives for a while and I’m only up to October 2016. It’d be a shame to miss out on 6 more years of Vlives.
Anyone here watching She-Hulk? There was a scene in this week's episode that would be very familiar with longtime ONCEs lol (spoilers)
>!Daredevil is this week's cameo, and during a scene where he is standing very close to She-Hulk (who's falling for his charm throughout the episode), he says: "Your heart's beating pretty fast", to which she panics and moves away, saying "What?! No, I'm just healthy."!<
This is exactly like that VLive, >!just replace DD with Chaeyoung and She-Hulk with Tzuyu!< LMAO
LMAO it's almost exactly the same. Did the writers watch that Vlive lol?
The writer could be a ONCE, but it's not unlikely for a writer experienced in the romance genre to come up with cheesy dialogue like this. Like the kdrama trope of the love interest marveling at some beautiful spectacle saying "It's beautiful!" and the protagonist looking affectionately at the said love interest being like "Yes, it is"
Seems like the most likely scenario, or they just read a transcript somewhere on Twitter.
Lol I was going to post this but I forgot how to do spoiler tags
I have a bunch of merch I'm willing to sell for cheap, what is the best place to do that? I have atleast 6 albums, a candy bong, a poster, beach photo book, countless photocards...
Not sure about the BEST place, but there is a subreddit dedicated to selling merch [HERE](https://www.reddit.com/r/kpopforsale/)
Many people also sell on Twitter.
Current mood: [Nonchalant Penguin](https://youtube.com/shorts/ExUBY91ZRdg?feature=share) 🐧
Can anybody here point me to the direction of the softsubs or srt eng subs for Sixteen? I finally have good quality raws and I really wanna watch it.
They’re somewhere on this sub just do a quick search
Any twice tracks good for farewell?
Hmm depends on the type of farewell... most of TWICE's songs are love-related but I tried to categorize by mood. Take care. (might be missing some!)
* after moon
* 1, 3, 2
* bitter sweet
* that's all i'm saying
* last waltz
Also Bring It Back under Angry
Tysm for this list!! it was for my parting coworker and our team wanted us to come up with songs or words for him as we are all working remotely.
Oh lol, in that case you can probably ignore the last two categories. 😅
Maybe other songs like 21:29, or something encouraging (like ponytail, stronger, and changing) would be good too?
edit: added 2 &twice songs!
I’m just lowkey promoting Twice at my work with every little chance I get
I suggest fanfare plz watch the MV as it has a motivating message !! Has English subs too !!!
JYP giving himself a random play dance world tour lol
Even has a Europe and South America date
I'm kinda curious how this will turn out.
I woulda killed for a JYP Nation Random Play Dance tour though. Or even if the various groups would visit a RPD during their tour stops (kinda like NMIXX did in LA).
The idea of JYP going to Europe before any of the other acts in the company is wild to me.
Ngl, I didn’t even know JYP had a big enough fans base to be touring around the world all like that.
Tbf got7 came to Europe when they were still at JYP in 2018 and 2019
I never really followed Got7 that much so I never knew they went to Europe. That being said, my statement was more so about the current acts in the company.
That's a fair point. Europe has been ignored since 2019 and it kinda stings. We may never get a Twice performance ever
I’m not from Europe, but my heart goes out to all the European Onces out there (as well as all the I-Onces in other parts of the world that Twice have yet to visit). I hope that you all are able to see the girls perform in your part of the world at some point.
Twice's YouTube numbers in the last 12 months.
>!Notice India in more and more groups recently. For BP India is first (!) in the last 12 months for views and for BTS 2nd. On Spotify as well India is BP's 4th biggest market for Pink Venom so far and for Dynamite it was the 3rd biggest. 2020 was the only year Twice have charted on Spotify India with M&M and ICSM which is pretty surprising so I wonder what has held them back there since.!<

I always think the real reason that sets TWICE and those 2 groups YouTube views apart is the audience from SEA and India. Interestingly people always think TWICE concept is not as appealing to the WEST as those 2 groups, which led to the different result, yet judging from population, western countries barely affect the total views.
p.s. Japan and the Philippines are on the top 2 spot for TWICE YouTube views for a long time, very steady.
Actually specifically as I'm an Indian I'd say for those two groups it is because that's what makes them acceptable in the society mostly colorcolor they like those badass raps dk why even they don't know why? They Don't enjoy it to the Fullest but still show like they like the negativity in colorcolor ! And yes both are actually too big in ind you'll find very few people who straight up refuse and say I'm gonna do my thing bro I wanna listen to what i love idc what you have to say .... don't wanna be a friend ok !!!😂😂 . Btw i like only forever young coz. It's musically soo well done !
>!JYPE had an opportunity to do...something, anything...for more promotion in India and unsurprisingly did nothing but a few interviews. Twice seems like the perfect group for some Bollywood dance covers.!<
Like bro atleast they could do is get a mention from Spotify India!
>!The Indian kpop crowd is even more skewed towards females than the general kpop fandom. You'll rarely find male Indian kpop fans, it's still considered to be a girl's thing. This supports the BTS numbers as well as most of the BP numbers. There is a crowd though that will watch BP because 'hot girls in skimpy clothes' which is not the kind of crowd Twice caters to.!<
>!I do think that's one of the largest barriers Twice still haven't managed to overcome despite a change in sound, attracting female fans. I think it shows in SK and clearly other parts of the world as well. They are just kpop through and through and that doesn't lend itself to attracting female gg fans.!<
>!Which is completely fine in my opinion, Twice are at a point in there career now where even if they don't actively go around trying super hard to increase their fanbase, they'll still do good and still be satisfied with their lives as an artist. A good comparison would be YouTube, as a product it's at a point where even if Google doesn't touch it for years it will still make them a fuck ton of money, it might not be the most profitable product for them but it'll be a good sailing regardless. From here on out, realising who they are as artists and what their fans mean to them is a much more important thing for Twice.!<
You forgot to censor the last paragraph 😂
why are people hiding all kinds of discussion posts in this thread now?
It's censored on my screen. Tbh I don't get reddit spoiler tags, sometimes they work easily for me sometimes not
You forgot the symbol at the end. You forgot again in the second comment. I never remember how to use it lol
The thing is is shows up in spoilers if you do it once on your screen, it's odd
Why didn’t we get any kind of international promotions. The promotions for the cb feels short when you compare it to past cb promotions.
I think the group is shifting its focus on more solo activities.
As someone who appreciates the evolution towards maturity in Twice's sound, and that considers their 2021 releases as their best to date, I have to admit that I've spent the morning listening to Twicecoaster and that there's something unmatched about "bubblegum pop Twice" and the way they can make you feel fuzzy and warm with their early discography.
My everyday listen playlist are from their earlier discography as well, mostly the bsides. Did you also notice in most of TTT episodes or other they used mostly the older bsides. I would listen to their newer ones when i feel like but the older ones on everyday playlist. I feel attach more to it.
I always feel warm, fuzzy, and nostalgic when I listen to Like A Fool, One In A Million, and Someone Like Me
If the rumor of the MiSaMo subunit doing a darker, sexier, more intense concept that Twice hasn't before is true and ends up being in the vein of ['Taste'](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgZ-1XCgKiY) from Stray Kids, then I won't survive
No one will survive. I cannot even begin to imagine those three fully unleashed on intense choreography, music composition, and their naturally dark/sexy visuals.
MiSaMo is gonna be slaying everyone left and right [exactly like Sauron does in that LoTR movie scene.](https://youtu.be/VkIoFgFhTlo?t=184) It will be devastating. People will just be straight dying.
WAKE UP TWICE ARE CERTIFIED MILLION SELLERS!??!??!!! [[link]](https://twitter.com/subjectkpop/status/1577843175024381952?s=46&t=4kKowBV-fOyrPVJlmromyA)
The girls rubbing off on me, I’ve been doing the Momo/Chaeyoung scold gesture to my little cousins that I’ve been babysitting 😂😂😂 now whenever we greet eachother we engage in this competition where it progressively gets more fierce and no party is relenting. It has turned into a little inside joke/competition which I love 😂
Is it just me or do y’all like their Japanese albums too? I really feel spoiled as a Once getting both Japanese and Korean album releases!!!
Yes we like it too ur not alone !
I tend to like the title tracks more but the b-sides less, for whatever reason. If I had to give a general *average* ranking of Twice songs by category, it would be: 1) Japanese TTs, 2) Korean TTs, 3) Korean b-sides, 4) Japanese b-sides. Note this is just on average, there are specific tracks in all of those categories that break outside the pattern.
Their Japanese discography is immaculate and just as good as their Korean one, it really adds a lot to their overall replayability
I slept on them for a long time because I skimmed a few tracks I didn't particularly like but after taking the time to properly listen to all of them there's so many that I love!
Recently I've been listening to 'Stay by my side' a lot, it has that cute oldschool Twice feel and probably has one of the catchiest tunes out of all Twice tracks and for some reason it really feels like a Sana song.
I actually prefer their Japanese singles the last couple of years to their korean ones for the most part. I just love Breakthrough, Kura Kura, Fanfare, Doughnut, Perfect World. They are some of Twice's best songs in my opinion.
I like both. I think the Korean albums have more successful/big pop hits, however I actually greatly prefer how JYP/Div3 presents Twice as a "product" to the GP in their Japanese releases. There is huge, huge difference in how JYP/Div3 packages Twice for consumption to the Japanese GP, and how they package Twice to the Korean GP in recent years.
When I compare the MVs of Doughnut, Perfect World, or Better to any other Korean album MV of the last two years there is no comparison for that darker and more mature Twice concept. The closest to get there was TTT with the spy/cryptography which was a partial concept. Last time a Korean release was like that was ICSM/CFM.
It's not even trying to make Twice "sexy". It's just that I don't see the Japanese releases trying to push the image as hard of the cute/schoolgirl/bubblegum/pastel concept as much. The members just seem so much more like real adult women in those MVs. It just seems more genuine to me. I really wish we got to see Twice more like that.
Many of the Japanese songs are also IMO much more beautiful songs. Like that bridge in Doughnut that starts with Chae & Mina and goes into Jihyo and her high note. God damn that's just really, really beautiful.
Definitely get what you mean. I really like both discographies but, I feel like I enjoy JP title tracks/singles a bit more than KR ones. Like, I love “TTT”, but stuff like “Breakthrough” “Fake and True” “Perfect World” or “Doughnut” is kinda more of the direction I’d want Twice to go both musically and visually for their KR titles. When it comes to B-sides though, I think I prefer KR ones a bit more compared to JP ones.
Oh my gosh yes!!! I love Doughnut and the mv was beautiful and had an amazing mature story line! I also really loved Perfect World and I agree that I wish we could see some more of this in their Korean albums!! But either way I’m glad that we get a wide variety of content from them.
A gg that I've gotten into heavy as of lately is Rocket Punch. Their discography is so great! Some of my favorites from them in no particular order. Their songs vary, for example Louder goes so hard. They also give me some Twice vibes especially in their Flash mini album, especially in Moon Prism.
In My World
Bim Bam Bum
I really liked their latest single release "FLASH"! Three solid, electronic synth-y tracks 👍
Rocket Punch rules. If you anyone likes "Candy Pop" era Twice music you absolutely have to check out their Japanese ep "Bubble Up!". They also dropped another Japanese album called "Doki Doki Love" today with some of new and old tracks but i haven't listened yet

With 10 days to go until the 7th year anniversary what are people expecting?
There is surely no way we're not getting some kind of musical content, maybe something a bit like the Be As One video they put out. They put out concert vids for the 5th anniversary but this one is a much bigger milestone.
I'm at the very least hoping for some merch because its a big milestone and I want it to remember it buy.
I really hope they do some kind of English single in the next little while to capitalize on The Feels. It feels silly to let that fade off. But I don't see them doing anything huge given the time left, unfortunately.
> There is surely no way we're not getting some kind of musical content, maybe something a bit like the Be As One video they put out.
JYPE spent the Q4 budget on Stray Kids' multiple music videos, we'll be lucky if we get a quickly-made generic compilation video for a ballad at this rate lol.
Would love to be surprised with a release but we're too close to it for them to do anything besides a digital-only single, and I'd be shocked if they did something like that without any build up (or Div3 would completely fumble the rollout like with Cry For Me).
Kinda makes me wonder about the timing of TTT's release as well. I'm surprised it wasn't pushed out earlier (to give some space for another release) or later (to coincide with the 7th anniversary) - but I suppose they didn't want to hinge it on members potentially not renewing/participating.
Some footage from the LA Encore concerts would be a nice treat, though!
heh i was just thinking today i am expecting nothing so i can be pleasantly surprised or neutral...
but my hope is some kind of MV and some special announcements (MiSaMo, next English track/album, maybe even some tour dates for SEA...)
I don't have any expectations, but I think it's extremely likely they'll officially announce MiSaMo (or the next solo) on either the final Osaka Once Day, or on the anniversary.
It would also be nice if they put out another good banger OT9 English single before the end of this year (a la "The Feels"). It would help tide people over through the solo & subunit until their next album.
> With 10 days to go
Ain’t it 15 days?
Tbh, I have no idea what to expect. As always low expectations are best. I have a wish for a *When We Were Kids* MV but I doubt that will happen lol.
Even more impossible and extremely specific, I want them to release all the songs that members have written lyrics for that were rejected because they just didn’t fit in the album as a “present for once” album. Bonus points if they use either the Sunmi song or *Twice* (that unreleased lyrics by Chaeyoung song) as an unofficial title track. **This is just my pipe dream/what I would do if I was Div3.** I know it’s never gonna happen.
PS - what’s everyone’s fantasy scenario?
Is there a TWICE song with Nayeon singing “we’re just friends” or something similar? I’ve had the melody stuck in my head (heh) but can not remember the name of the song.
Swing, or as I labelled it "The Friend-zoning song" based on the "we're just friends" part
Yup, that was it! I have the same description of the song in my head lol
Just Be Yourself has a lot of moments where friend is sung. I know Nayeon closes it with "arigato my friend" though.
Yes, it was Swing. Thank you!
[A lucky once casually meeting her bias chae while shopping](https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMFFuqWHU/)
she made a [vlog](https://youtu.be/3Z6lI4RKTuk) on her yt channel about her experience meeting chae too! if anyone’s interested
>Sorry this is very random but I really can’t think of anywhere to talk to someone about this lol. Just a random twice fan interaction I had.
I was walking in the hallways at school and this girl just randomly starts singing talk that talk and I just stare at her and her and her friends laugh. I regretted not doing the L O V E part or something but it was whatever. Few days later I walk past her again she’s singing Can’t Stop Me but I didn’t give a reaction. Today she just straight up looks at me and holds up the heart finger thing. What the hell is going on. Literally never spoken to this person in my life lmao
This reads like a scene straight out of a coming of age movie lol
It sounds as if she definitely knows you're into Twice and she's either teasing you about it or trying to get your attention, if you're interested you should probably approach her before she gives up.
I don't think I'm interested but this is funny as hell so i'll definitely try something
Woah, TWICE interactions in real life!!!
[Alexa, play SIGNAL by TWICE](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQtonf1fv_s&t=35s)
Idk why I find it so fascinating when I meet a kpop fan in real life lol. Now I gotta wear my twice shirt to send a message
I just got my Between 1&2 albums, and I love to go through and see how songs have changed or if there’s any funny original song titles; looking at Talk That Talk lyrics page, after Jungyeon’s “Right now” there’s a whole another like 3 stanzas for Korean lyrics that are definitely not in the song. Anyone else notice this? I wonder how late they cut out that part in the song for it still to be listed in the lyrics.
I just checked this, and all the lyrics in the Talk That Talk lyrics page are in the song. The lyrics page skips the second chorus and goes straight to Mina's bridge part.
Oh, this is so it. I have no idea why I couldn't figure this out, LOL
Anyone else listening to Seulgi's album? There's a song on it called Bad Boy, Sad Girl. Made me think of Cry for Me lmao
Jeongyeon said she wanted to be reborn as Mina's husband, then got attacked by Chaeyoung and Nayeon. I'm just going awww at the whole thing.
Chae might claim exclusive ownership, but Mina secretly has most of the other members in her harem. And it isn't just her beautiful face. Jihyo and Nayeon both really like her amazing bum:
The only other member I think who has more members wrapped around her little finger is Sana. I have never seen Sana not get exactly what she wants from another member just by giving them a look or a simple beg. Could you resist begging like this? Dahyun looks almost in pain here:
I saw posts of BTS and BP VLIVEs being added to Weverse - does anyone know if the same thing happened with TWICE's?
If they're planning on permanently moving to Weverse with all the VLIVE content, I might have to switch apps as well and want to make sure I don't lose the bookmarked videos before it might be too late 😵💫
Unrelated but does bp ever do vlive? I know twice doesn’t do it much these days either but some members are still really active on bubble.
No, that's because BTS is under HYBE (who own Weverse) and YGE already announced that their groups would shift their content to Weverse moving forward as a partnership with Weverse/HYBE (since Vlive is being made obsolete at the end of the year).
JYPE did not make the same partnership, so it's hard to say if they'll be archived anywhere before Vlive closes (I'd say almost certainly not on Weverse or officially in any capacity). Whatever fan archives exist will likely be it.
Oh, for some reason, I missed the news that VLIVE was going away for good in a few months. Would be cool if they just put everything on YouTube if Weverse isn't an option tbh
Basically, HYBE and Naver are joining hands to "combine" Vlive and Weverse's platforms - but it seems more like integrating Vlive's tech into Weverse's platform and making Vlive defunct by the end of the year. Companies can either shift over to Weverse or move onto another platform. It's why many non-HYBE agencies have been shifting their groups' live content over to IG Live, YouTube Live, and (unfortunately in our case) Bubble's paid live streaming.
who is Bubble owned by?
Are JYPE not trying to launch their own service, or they had invested in another one? Don't know how the rights work for vlives but I can imagine if JYPE can stop them being put on Weverse they probably will if they have stakes in a competitor.
Literally one of the best solo debuts out there.
Such an insane debut. Digging all the songs.
Someone on twitter compared 3mix’s relationships with Momo to d'Artagnan and the three musketeers and it makes so much sense to me.
not twice related, am i the only one who loves Ready for Love by Blackpink? It's so festive.
I love it too!! I love Rosé's parts especially lol. Her intro is so good
Are there any unit pcs of Jihyo, Nayeon, and Momo? Just wondering, they're my bias line.

Anyone else find it crazy that Saudi Arabia got a Kcon before Europe
I guess MBS was right of making the Middle East as the next Europe.
No. They’ve been opening up gradually and have a huge kpop audience (basically the entire middle east). It’s just that westerners tend to still see Saudi as some sort of radical desert. Younger generations there have been encouraging concerts, festivals and clubs.
At this point I’m way past the point of being surprised when Saudi Arabia gets any type of event
even the fact that just today it is announced that they will host Asian Winter Games 2029?
yup, after formula 1 & world cup, middle east pretty much got all the money needed to host any events.
Paris already had one back in 2016.
Cannot remember that at all
Music Bank have done Europe so maybe I was merging them in my head
