    I finally edited the first post (I did it some time ago LOL), I'll probably edit the text one of these days to make it shorter, but yeah, it's basically complete now ;D

    So since this forum is AKB/J-pop related, I'll start with talking about TWICE's popularity among japanese celebrities, starting from their song Cheer Up. After they released this song in April 2016 (and the "Sha Sha Sha / Shy Shy Shy" words went viral), they started getting some mentions from japanese celebrities.

    1. As soon as the Mv was released, japanese actress Honoka Miki (from Itazura na Kiss Love in Tokyo, etc.) posted the Cheer Up Mv on her Twitter:

    2016/04/25 Honoka Miki Twitter
    She wrote: "This is too cuteー♡"

    2. Members of E-girls (sorry I don't know their names) did the Sha Sha Sha pose.



    They wrote "シャシャシャ" (Sha Sha Sha) in their blog entry. You can see it here!

    Fun fact:
    Sana was actually a LDH trainee back in Japan, before she joined Jype and became a trainee in Korea. You can read about it here. There's a rumor that Momo was also a trainee. Both of them are friends with a former E-girls member Yamamoto Runa. Here's a photo of them together when Runa went to Korea in February 2017 to attend TWICE's first solo concert "TWICELAND". She wrote on her IG post: "with Sana-chan and Momo-chan♥ I went to their concert, it was so cuteッ Aah~ I had a great timeッ♥ The new song is too cuteッ♥"


    During TWICE's pre-debut survival program, Sana's intro video was a dance to E-girls "Follow Me".

    She danced to it again once after debut, during a special live streaming, here!

    3. NMB48 members did the Sha Sha Sha pose and sing along to Cheer Up!

    2016/06/06 Naiki Kokoro Twitter (video)
    She wrote: "shyshyshy(^^)"

    2016/08/24 Kishino Rika Twitter (videos)

    On the videos you can see Kawakami Rena & Kishino Rika singing / dancing along to Cheer Up ^^

    Fun fact: All 3 japanese members of TWICE Momo, Sana, Mina come from the Kansai region in Japan (Momo from Kyoto, Sana from Osaka and Mina from Kobe), and NMB are also from Kansai (Osaka) so they're from the same region ;D

    Ok I think that's all for the TWICE mentions by japanese celebrities during Cheer Up era. Next time I'll post about the TT era and more. There will be a lot! XD

    Yes, she did it more than once too! She seems to be a fan XD I'll find the photos and post them later.
    a lot of 48/46 members did the TT pose ever since last year, some of them are big fans too (like Naanya, or Nogi's Yuttan).

    Wow I didn't even realise they had a thread here! But yay that they do!
    I have been following them since their debut (I am a huge Korean music fan) and their sound is so fun and bubbly <3

    Likey is ridiculously addictive. And the album is brilliant too!!
    My bias is Tzuyu with a large helping of Momo too :)

    I love TWICE's foreign line (Momo, Sana, Mina & Tzuyu).

    And Mina is such a beauty!

    Nice, I didn't expect to see many TWICE fans here! it would be nice if more people posted in this thread so we can talk more about them too! Their latest song Likey is already one of my favorite of them, it's super catchy and I'm loving the choreography and the music video! I'm excited for the live performances of it!

    Actually, I'm in the few who doesn't like "Likey." Sorry. Just not my cup of tea. But, I heard the spoiler for the rest of the album and there are songs that I prefer way more than it:

    Im a fan as well. Loved their recent release and some of the B sides in the album were great as well. Also I like how they put out a lot of content on vapp for their fans to enjoy
    Praying that we'll be able to see more 46/48 x Twice interactions in the future. A recent interaction I know of is when Iwamoto Renka (3rd gen Nogizaka)wrote a blog post about how she got to meet Dubu and thought she was pretty and admires her.

    Looking forward to the next time Twice promotes in Japan!

    Although Likey its quite a "simple" MV have great moments, making it a very enjoyable to watch MV.
    I wonder, What is your favorite moment in Likey?
    Now, I select some of the most remarkable moments in Likey just to put some examples.
    We have:
    Sana's "Likey, likey" moments.
    Momo's dance machine moments.
    Jeongyeon's skater moments.
    Jihyo's "bouncing" moment.
    Chaeyeong and Dahyun's rap moment (Car scene)

    For me I have to say its Jihyo's "Bouncing" moment. :p Looks like this is quite a topic among some fans latetly.

    Anyway, whats your favorite Likey moment? Its on this list? Its another? Feel free to mention it. :D

    First of all, congrats Like OOH-AHH for the 200 million views! This is awesome because this is their 3rd music video to achieve 200 million, before that we had earlier this year TT getting 200 million views, then around the middle of the year Cheer Up getting 200 million views, and now it's Like OOH-AHH. Congrats <3

    Just now, Likey music video surpassed 30 million views. and this happened in just 4 days or so, I'm shocked XD They keep getting stronger and stronger! and Knock Knock music video is about to reach 150 million views too! ONCEs are such a dedicated and loving fandom <3

    About my favorite moment in Likey, this is so difficult! I like a lot of moments... but yes Jihyo really shines in this music video, especially the scene when she wears jeans (same scene as the "bouncing" moment. LOL). I love the bridge too when they show Jihyo then Nayeon, the scenery looks great. and Momo solo dance! awesome part. Nayeon on bike is cute too! Oh and Dahyun's rap part is very cool. I have so many more but yes this music video is really so good.

    I listened to Twicetagram (the new album), it has 13 songs. wow! it's really a great album, I highly recommend it to everyone. and if you love the album too, please consider buying it! You can buy it on sites like kpopmart, kpoptown and more (I can help if anyone needs links).

    I'm not sure yet which songs are my favorites because a lot of them stand out, I need to listen to it more to decide my favorite songs!
