Taiwanese Kpop group member trigger off cross-Strait political row – YouTube

During the airing of My Little Television, each TWICE member held their own country’s flag. Everything went well apart from the very fact that Tzuyu held the flag of Taiwan rather than the Republic of China. Huang An, a Taiwanese singer who was based in China, delivered a powerful accusation, saying that Tzuyu is one of all the Taiwanese Independence supporters.

The scandal quickly escalated to the world stage. Media from China blocked and boycotted the looks of TWICE from their channels. Several months later, Tzuyu apologized for causing the scandal, and not too long after, TWICE’s founder, JYP, wrote an apology sentence. Many fans said that the media treated Tzuyu too harshly and she was innocent.

Dahyun’s passport leak scandal


Dahyun’s private information was leaked to the web community in 2020. In Gimpo airport, airport staff held Dahyun’s passport too high, and onlookers could easily spot and determine Dahyun’s personal information. Dahyun revealed and covered her passport from the view of others. However, an individual nearby had already taken a video, and therefore the video went viral immediately.

Dahyun was visibly upset with the staff. JYP Entertainment responded immediately and stated that sharing others’ personal information may be a violation of the non-public Information Act. the corporate will sue everyone who invades TWICE members’ privacy.

Dahyun’s Marymond T-shirt scandal


In 2018, Dahyun was spotted and photographed while wearing a Marymond t-shirt. The brand was reported to be linked with comfort women during Japan’s imperial period. A Japanese politician criticized Dahyun and urged Japanese broadcast channels to ban TWICE performances.

Nayeon’s SoundCloud scandal


Nayeon has always been a friend of SNSD, especially Taeyeon. In February 2016, she made an unfortunate mistake. Nayeon posted a picture of her paying attention to Taeyeon’s “Secret” through SoundCloud. SoundCloud may be a music-sharing platform and is commonly utilized by people to share their song covers or share their favorite songs with others.

Since Taeyeon’s song was copyrighted and also the legal streaming platform was already available for a particular fee, fans immediately criticized Nayeon for using SoundCloud. The scandal was over after Nayeon apologized to the general public and made a promise to take care of the future

Sana’s social media post about Heisei and Reiwa eras scandal


In 2019, Sana posted her opinion about the transition between the Heisei and Reiwa eras. She said that as someone who was born within the Heisei era, she embraced the Reiwa era. However, some people found Sana’s post offensive. Actually, Sana’s opinion wasn’t controversial in any respect.

Mina’s rising sun hat scandal

At a friend sign event, a disciple gave Mina a hat that was inspired by Fujiyama. The hat resembled the famous Fuji mountain with snow at the highest of the mountain and a large hole for Mina’s face. There was nothing wrong with the hat aside from one thing. At the highest of the mountain, there was the controversial rising sun flag. Koreans hate the flag because it reminds them of the tough period during Korea’s annexation into the Empire of Japan.

One of the staff immediately removed the hat, but people already noticed the flag. Fortunately, the incident didn’t change into a large problem. The fan who gave the hat was informed and later apologized. After the incident, JYP Entertainment released a post that stated all the gifts must be checked before being given to TWICE members.

Mina’s death threat scandal

A Korean netizen posted a photograph of him/her holding a knife on top of their wrist. The person wrote that he/she had a knife, and if Mina didn’t slap or shut her boyfriend’s mouth, then he/she will kill Mina. JYP Entertainment responded immediately and posted a press release saying that Mina and BamBam were only friends which they weren’t dating.

Jihyo’s native Indian Halloween costume scandal

In 2017, during a Halloween fan meeting, Jihyo showed up in an exceedingly Native Indian-inspired costume. She added a coat to her costume and added ornamental makeup to her face. Several people found her costume offensive and criticized her. TWICE fans defended her and said that the costume was inspired by Princess Mononoke or Native American-Indian clothes.

Jihyo and Jung Joon-young’s videotape scandal

At the height of Seungri’s Burning Sun scandal and Jung Joon-young’s sex videos scandal, TWICE’s Jihyo was being mentioned together by the victims. Jung Joon-young illegally recorded several videos while sleeping with girls. The videos were circulated on the net, and other people began guessing about the identity of the women within the videos. many folks assumed that TWICE Jihyo was one among the women within the videos. thanks to the incident, Jihyo received harsh comments from the web community. However, the accusations were false, and fans were just making up the rumor.

Chaeyoung’s private blog and illegal download scandal


In 2015, netizens assumed that they found a secret post owned by TWICE’s Chaeyoung. Within the blog, the blog owner posted several photos of flowers that she received from fans. In another post, the blog owner posted a picture of her watching the film Carol. At that point, the movie wasn’t yet available to be downloaded and watched. The blog owner allegedly downloaded the movie from an illegal site.

Carol was rated R, and an individual under 16 wasn’t allowed to observe the movie. At around that point, Chaeyoung was underage, and he or she wasn’t alleged to watch the movie. JYP Entertainment didn’t reply to the rumors, and also the rumors gradually disappeared.

Jeongyeon’s overweight scandal


In March 2021, alleged photos of Jeongyeon circulated in online media. TWICE had just completed their online concert in Japan, and photos from the concert circulated. before the concert, Jongyeon was undergoing psychological treatment, and she or he was on a brief hiatus. Fans noticed that Jeongyeon slightly had more weight than usual. Her clothes looked bigger than usual, perhaps as a way to hide her belly and her body. That image of Jeongyeon was totally the other of the slim Jeongyeon when she debuted with TWICE. TWICE fans defended Jeongyeon and criticized bad comments aimed at her.

TWICE’s dating scandals

The popularity of TWICE members gets fans to scrutinize their relationships. Fans are envious whenever male idols or celebrities meet up with TWICE members or are photographed with them. Fans speculated that there was a special relationship between TWICE’s Jihyo and Kang Daniel. After months of secretly dating, DISPATCH found the couple spending time together. Later, Dispatch released photos of Jihyo and Kang Daniel. The couple finally went public and admitted their relationship status.

Momo was also involved in a very dating scandal. Apparently, there was something special between Super Junior’s Heechul and Momo. the connection wasn’t a daily junior and senior relationship. After months of denying their idols’ dating statuses, Heechul’s label SJ and JYP Entertainment finally admitted to the rumor.

Luckily, fans embraced the great news from Jihyo and Momo. However, both Jihyo and Momo have confirmed the broken-up of their relationships.

TWICE’s acid attack scandal


An online community account threatened to attack TWICE members and pour a large amount of acid on them. The person also released a note and said that they might be waiting at the airport when TWICE members return from performing in other countries. The person accused TWICE of only searching for money whenever they travel abroad.

JYP Entertainment responded quickly and reported the threat. A year later, in 2018, a press release from JYP Entertainment reported that the criminal was caught and also the acid attack was controlled.

TWICE’s Gayo Daejeon scandal

SBS’ Gayo Daejeon lingered as a really bad moment for TWICE fans. During the 2015 Gayo Daejeon, TWICE was given a really limited time to perform on the stage. At the time, TWICE had just debuted, and fans were very interested in their performance. Awful camerawork added further damage to TWICE’s performance.

In 2016, it went even worse. Fans looked forward to TWICE’s rehearsal schedule that was scheduled within the morning. The fans waited patiently ahead of the stage previous to the practice time. However, just before TWICE’s rehearsal time, the program coordinator canceled their rehearsal, and fans were left disappointed. The program coordinator moved TWICE’s rehearsal time from early in the morning to late in the afternoon.

TWICE’s lip synchronization scandal


In 2016, TWICE performed at the Super Seoul Dream Concert. A performance sheet queue of the program was circulated in a web community. On the sheet, TWICE’s performance was listed as AR while GFriend’s performance was listed as MR. AR implies that singing isn’t “live” while in MR, the singing is “live.” However, the scandal was quickly banished after several live performances showed the exceptional vocals of TWICE’s members.
