Netizens Call Out ITZY For Underwhelming Performances on Japan's 'Music Station' and 'Sukkiri'!
Earlier in November, JYP Entertainment's ITZY were featured on the two Japanese TV shows as they prepare for their official Japanese Debut this month with their upcoming album "IT'z ITZY."
On the 12th of November, ITZY performed the Japanese version of their hit track "Wannabe" on TV Asahi's "Music Station." The girl group performed the same performance on Nippon TV's "Sukkiri" on the 25th of November alongside the Japanese version of "DALLA DALLA."
On the 2nd of December, a media outlet reported a couple of the comments made by Japanese fans on the performance of ITZY on the two Japanese programs, and it seems as though they were not feeling ITZY's performances.
As per the reports, ITZY's performance on the Japanese TV programs was not rated well locally. Comments criticizing ITZY regarding their underwhelming performances were rampant.
A couple of netizens even commented that ITZY rarely sings live, using a pre-recorded soundtrack during their performance, thus they expected that the choreography would be top-notch, at least.
Criticism of ITZY's performances on TV Asahi's "Music Station" and Nippon TV's "Sukkiri" was a big deal as the JYP Entertainment K-pop girl group is known for their ability to dance and perform, and seeing them underperform on the shows were very disappointing for fans.
A Japanese netizen even went on to comment that most K-pop idols have impressive performances, but ITZY's performance just 'felt weak.' Although this is a bad start on their Japanese debut, ITZY is still far from being unable to salvage their reputation in Japan.
As of writing this article, JYP Entertainment has not yet released a comment regarding the rampant criticism of ITZY's performance.
