sha x3 goes kawai: twice to debut in japan

After taking Korea by storm, girl group TWICE is getting ready to make their first debut in an overseas market!

On February 7, TWICE’s official Japanese Twitter account posted TWICE’s official logo along with a link to the new website for their Japanese promotions.

The website is so empty so far except for an intro video with all of the members, their names written in both English and Japanese, and “TT” playing in the background.

It is not yet known whether TWICE will do a Japanese remake of one of their Korean hits, or if they will have a brand new track for the occasion. Notably, three of TWICE’s members, Momo, Sana, and Mina, are from Japan.

Stay tuned for more details!

GOT7 want YOUR (yes, YOUR!) opinion!

If you’ve been waiting for the opportunity to say something to GOT7, now’s your chance!

On February 5, the group revealed through their official Twitter account that they wanted to know what their fans think about a variety of topics. They posted a link to a survey that was originally conducted during a portion of the group’s third fan meeting.

Notably, the survey isn’t just open to domestic fans, but to all fans worldwide. The questions, which helpfully are written both in Korean and English, ask about things like favorite and least favorite songs, reasons for your preferences, how you got interested in GOT7, opinions on other boy groups, and more. They also ask for any suggestions for their next fan meeting, and even have a section where you can write anything you want to GOT7 (or JYP Entertainment).

The survey will be open until February 9 KST, so go check it out!

Narae unbreaks my heart (a little), says 🌟Spica🌟 have not officially disbanded

I heard this on radio yesterday and wanted to post this together with their fifth anniversary post I'm making tomorrow but decided that there can never be too many Spica posts..! the only article about it right now is from #bannedsource so I'm paraphrasing based on it and from what I heard Narae say on radio.

  • "It's not an official disbandment"

  • confirmed that their contract with CJ is ending

  • they will look for new agencies separately

  • they will focus on individual activities in the meantime ("including radio")

  • they still hope to release songs under Spica's name if it's possible

  • also joked that there are more news articles about their disbandment than any of their previous promotions

sources: MBC FM4U Music Party (7 Feb podcast, 40:17 onwards), @Spica_Tweets 1, 2

what do you guys think? it still sounds like disbandment any way you slice it, but I appreciate her clarifying the facts of the situation. it's enough for me just knowing that they're making the effort to stay together as a group, regardless of whether they're able to actually release music together ever again. there's still no statement from CJ so I'm taking this as the group's official stance, which is the only stance I care about tbh!!

Considering how taboo mental health issues still are in Korea in a lot of ways, I think it's admirable how openly he decided to talk about his own struggles and frustrations with the mental health system. Hopefully it might bring some more attention to the issue.

idology: top twenty albums of 2016


Idology is a popular and well known music review site based in Korea. It is probably the best known along with IZM, which focuses more on a combination of idol and non-idol musicians while Idology leans more toward idols. The album list from 2015 can be viewed here for comparison, though it was a top ten rather than top twenty.
