Having said that, it does help that 3 TWICE members are Japanese!

TWICE recently made their highly-anticipated debut in Japan, where the group have already captured the public's imagination with their songs, style, and variety show appearances. But while the girls are no strangers to the idol scene, debuting in Japan does come with a unique set of challenges for the group.

In a new interview ahead of TWICE's first Japanese solo concert, scheduled for July 2, the 3 Japanese members of the group, MomoMina, and Sana, revealed that promoting in Japan has been a challenge because of the different language. While the three members can speak fluent Japanese, TWICE's Japanese album features Japanese versions of their original Korean songs, thus the girls have found it difficult to adapt and adjust between Japanese and Korean for their songs. 

It's not just the switch from Korean to Japanese that's proved to be difficult, as Momo, Mina, and Sana have also all found themselves in a leadership role while TWICE are promoting in Japan, seeing as how the three were originally from the country.

While there have been a few challenging moments for TWICE during the Japanese promotions so far, it looks like the girls are handling it with aplomb given how popular they already are in the country! Keep going, TWICE!
