NHK Bombed With Criticism From Japanese Netizens For Inviting TWICE
While BTS were unable to make an appearance on Japanese music show ‘Music Station’, it looks like JYP Entertainment girl group TWICE will be appearing on NHK’s ‘Kōhaku Uta Gassen’ as the broadcasting station confirmed on November 14th, the guest appearance of the girl group.
While TWICE have three Japanese members within the group, it also turns out that their appearance isn’t being welcomed at all by Japanese netizens.
Many have criticized the broadcasting station and expressed negative feedback regarding their decision. Below are some of the comments.
“Three members being Japanese doesn’t change the fact that they’re a Korean group.”
“We’re going to stop paying reception fee.”
“Can we have a Japanese group instead?”
“NHK is finished.”
What do you make of the current controversy? Should NHK cancel TWICE’s appearance and listen to their nation’s citizens?
