[V Report] Fans react to Japanese broadcast of ‘Misamo’ of Twice


(Naver's V app)

Mina, Sana and Momo of Twice surprised their fans with surprise V Live broadcasts on Monday.

The three Japanese members of the nine-piece girl group, also collectively known as ‘Misamo,’ went live on Naver’s V app for five consecutive broadcasts.

The trio mostly conversed in Japanese throughout the live broadcast, which went on for about 50 minutes in total.

Some fans pointed out that non-Japanese speaking fans were being sidelined. V app livestreams, though generally spontaneous and informal, are designed to serve as a platform for communication between stars and their fans. Understandably, some of the tri-national group’s fans, which boast a huge Korean base, expressed frustration.

“I left comments asking Misamo to speak in Korean but they kept speaking in Japanese,” said one viewer. However, others came to Misamo’s defense, saying that “it’s only natural they would speak in Japanese among themselves. They are Japanese after all.”

The broadcasts have been viewed over 500,000 times in total as of Tuesday.

      [The Straits Times] Police looking into video of concertgoer shouting gang slogan during K-pop girl group Twice's concert

      Reporter: Ng Huiwen   SINGAPORE - The police are looking into a viral video of a concertgoer heard shouting a gang slogan during South Korean girl group Twice's concert on Sunday (June 17).
      A seven-second clip of the incident was shared online recently, after it was first posted on Twitter.
      In the video, a voice could be heard chanting "sah lak kau", or "369" in Hokkien, as the nine-member K-pop group sang and danced on stage.
      The slogan is synonymous with the gang Sio Kun Tong. The concertgoer's face was not shown in the video.
      In response to queries, the police said they are aware of the incident and are looking into it.
      Under the Societies Act, it is illegal to join or act as a member of an unlawful society. It is also illegal to attend a meeting of an unlawful society.
      The Twitter user (angelo@Daamndude) who first uploaded the video claimed the voice in the clip belonged to his brother and that he had shouted the gang slogans during the concert, as he did not know the words to a fan chant being sung by other concertgoers.
      About 8,500 fans turned up for the three-hour concert, Twiceland Zone 2: Fantasy Park, at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Sunday.
      The group performed hits such as Cheer Up, TT and Knock Knock in their second concert in Singapore, after their debut gig in 2017.
      The police have previously taken action against those who chanted gang slogans in public.
      In November 2017, four men were charged for their alleged involvement in unlawful societies, after videos of them shouting gang slogans at funeral processions were circulated online.
      Anyone convicted of being a member of an unlawful society may face a fine not exceeding $5,000, a jail term of up to three years, or both.

      Park Jin Young Discusses The Future Of JYP Entertainment And Changes They Will Undergo

      Park Jin Young, the founder of JYP Entertainment, recently participated in an event held by Spark Labs to discuss the future of the agency and how they hope to expand and adapt to the ever-changing industry.
      Bringing up the fact that JYP will be moving to a new building soon, Park Jin Young talked about four different ways that they will be changing how the company is run in order to be more efficient and adaptable, while also creating a healthy work environment. He called the change “JYP 2.0.”
      First, Park Jin Young talked about how they will be changing up how the company is run from a traditional format, in which there is one department that carries out a certain set of tasks, such as marketing or management, to different task forces that handle a single artist. He explained that two years ago, he tested out the new task force format with TWICE, and he found that things were faster and communication was better between the staff and the artists. Therefore, JYP will from now on be four different labels under the umbrella of JYP Entertainment, and all of the artists under JYP will be designated to a specific task force.
      The second strategy Park Jin Young discussed was “Globalization by localization.” He spoke of how bringing in Nichkhun to be a member of 2PM helped the group become a global group and connect more with fans around the world. Park Jin Young explained how JYP has continued to train non-Korean talents to be a part of JYP groups, and they will continue to expand and debut groups under their system with no Korean members. He explained that they recently debuted a Chinese group and are planning to debut a Japanese girl group in the future.
      The third plan was to create a “JYP Music Factory,” a large space that will help maintain the quality of music while increasing the artists quantity of music. The new facility will include nine dance studios, 18 vocal rooms, seven producing rooms, 11 recording booths, and two mixing rooms to give both established artists and trainees more resources to create more music.
      Finally, Park Jin Young spoke of “Creativity from happiness,” in which he discussed creating a good work environment for JYP’s employees. He talked about decreasing the number of maximum hours each person works at JYP Entertainment and being willing to hire more people to ensure that a healthy work-life balance is maintained. Park Jin Young also talked about serving high quality, organic food on the premise to make sure that the artists and employees can maintain a healthy lifestyle. Finally, he emphasized the importance of mental health and stated that they had hand-picked a group of psychiatrists who will regularly interact with artists and employees.
