    Well in Korea they start to "count time" since conception moment. Now, to make the things "simple" they add a whole year to the birth count (not only 9 months or so...).

    But of course the birth day still count as ... well... birthday like any other in world (celebrations, official documents, etc.). Thats why koreans are "1 year older" than the rest of the people on earth. :D

    Yes. Koreans add one year to the birth count because the "conception" thing. Weird, but true. :p:p

    let's just say koreans are counted as one year olds the moment they stepped out of their mom's vagane

    /creeps in/ Hello everyone

    Welcome to Kpop~! A world where once you get sucked in, you'll never come out of it again xD
    And to answer your question, Korea's age system is hella weird and but yes, you technically only have to add 1 year but there are times that it's 2 years instead. That's why I mostly refer them to their birthyear to make it less confusing. (eg. When someone asks me what's Jihyo's age is, I just tell them she's a 1997 liner lol)

    TWICE 紅白 is trending in Japan Twitter right now.
    I was sure Kouhaku will ignore Twice regardless of their popularity because of political stuff and what not.
    Guess I'm wrong. Congratz!!!

    2017/11/12 TWICE - Likey at Inkigayo
    This was posted above but the link got blocked ;_; So here's the official upload!



    I posted in the previous page that TWICE won their first trophy in Show Champion, and after that, they also won a trophy on M!Countdown, Music Bank, and Inkigayo! which means Likey has already 4 trophies now! Congrats TWICE <3 it's possible for them to win more trophies in the next weeks, let's see!



    and I just saw the news about TWICE being invited to Kouhaku. wow! Just like @Hitagi, I thought that TWICE might not get invited because they're too new, because they're not 100% japanese or for political reasons. But it looks like I was wrong ;_; and we'll see tomorrow if they're really invited, it's such a HUGE deal... wow. and they even trend in Japan for this already. it was said in japanese newspaper that they're invited so yes, it's pretty much real. So happy! <3

    TWICE will be on the same stage with AKB, Nogi, Keyaki... :eek: (assuming all of them will be invited but I'm pretty sure they will). So many favs on the same stage!!! Excited for this, and maybe we can get some interactions, since some of the 48/46 girls like TWICE ^^/

    Whoa.. they got invited to Kouhaku after just two promotions! They’re just the 4th Kpop group to have been invited.

    Yes they are being invited on the same year as they debuted... Extremely impressive especially for a girl group who is not totally japanese and not debuted in Japan initially (since they first debuted in Korea) though they do have 3/9 of the group being japanese. Keyaki also got invited in their first year of debut, and that's mostly thanks to their debut song being a hit (Silent Majority). Same case with TWICE since TT is pretty much a hit in Japan and the reason they got all that popularity and attention this year <3 Their japanese fandom has been growing bigger and bigger in such a fast way through all of 2017. it's amazing ;_;

    I really didn't think they could even be considered for Kouhaku this year so I'm really surprised and happy for them right now, I'm waiting for the official news though since it was only said through newspaper so far!



    Speaking of Japan, these past days TWICE went to Japan, to Sapporo, they went there to record another Pocari commercial. Probably winter version since it's with all the snow LOL They posted photos, and also did some V LIVE streaming! and here's a short funny videos of their managers dancing to Likey XD

    During that shooting, Jihyo did a V LIVE streaming with fans, then Dahyun and Chaeyoung did one too!

    Wild speculation: TWICE is being invited to stick it to China.

    That moment when you realized they only performed around 5x, did a few interviews in Japan then suddenly getting an invitation to perform at Kouhaku xD

    Congrats to them!
