TWICE’s Tzuyu Receives Unfair Treatment? JYP Entertainment Underfire As #TzuyuDeservesBetter Trends Online
Just recently, some ONCEs (the fandom name of TWICE), more ONCEs who have TWICE's Tzuyu as their bias, have made the hashtag #TzuyuDeservesBetter trends on Twitter. These fans have started to demand equal treatment and opportunities for TWICE's Tzuyu.
As per these fans, Tzuyu has started getting attention from TWICE's agency, JYP Entertainment, compared to the other 8 members of TWICE. This is not out of nowhere though as fans have listed evidence that JYP Entertainment has given Tzuyu less attention.
Although the lead dancer, maknae, and visual of TWICE, Tzuyu has had no solo activities beyond TWICE aside from her recent melody project. On the other hand, TWICE's Nayeon has gotten five solo magazine shoots, one solo CF, and even one gig as a host or MC.
Moreover, TWICE's Jeongyeon has had two solo magazine shoots. She has also worked on an original soundtrack alongside her sister entitled "Like a Star." TWICE's Momo has had one solo magazine photoshoot and she had a collaboration with yukaDD, a Japanese singer.
TWICE's Sana herself has had two solo pictorials, three hosting gigs, one brand deal, and previously was selected for the collaboration with K/DA. Furthermore, TWICE's Sana has also had a collaboration with Japanese Kobukuro.
TWICE's leader, Jihyo herself has had two solo magazine pictorials, one CF, and alongside Sana, was also one of the members of the K/DA collaboration. TWICE's Dahyun has also had two solo magazine shoots, four MC gigs, and even one brand deal.
Chaeyoung has had three solo magazine shoots and alongside Sana and Jihyo, also participated in the K/DA collaboration, and lastly, Mina has had at least one solo magazine shoot.
Unfortunately, although arguably the most popular member of TWICE, Tzuyu has not had a solo magazine photoshoot, nor has she worked on a brand deal or a CF. Tzuyu has also never hosted nor has she ever worked on a non-TWICE-related collaboration.
Aside from this, TWICE's Tzuyu has gotten worse quality stage costumes, fewer singing time, and less screen time as well.
JYP Entertainment has not released a statement regarding the issue.
