You might not know why

Famous South Korean & Philippine TV personality Ryan Bang appeared on the December 11 episode of MBC Video Star, and shares that TWICE‘s “TT” is unfit for broadcast in the Philippines.

“In Filipino, ‘TT’ tends to mean as the male private part. It’s especially more embarrassing because there’s a part in the choreography where they point down there.”, Ryan Bang explained.

MC Park Na Rae asked choreographer Lia Kim, who also joined as a guest, and asked, “Was this intended?” Lia Kim replied, “No, it was created based on the crying emoticon [ㅠㅠ].” 

Ryan Bang commented, “I think it’s more easily misunderstood in the Philippines because the crying emoticon doesn’t exist there.
