Comparison: Everything TWICE Has Released Since BLACKPINK's Last Comeback

Comparison: Everything TWICE Has Released Since BLACKPINK's Last Comeback

Today, we're coming to you with an article that's very different from most of the stuff we come out with. Today, we're going to compare one of the world's biggest K-pop girl groups who has a lack of new content with another of the world's biggest K-pop girl groups, but who is sometimes seen as releasing too much.


YG Entertainment's BLACKPINK's last comeback was with their first full album, remarkably titled "The Album", on 2 October, 2020.

In the 521 days since, BLINK - the BLACKPINK fandom - have continued to petition for new music from the group as a whole. Despite solo music releases from two of their members, original music from the group as a whole has not yet come about.

JYP Entertainment's TWICE's last comeback was - well, it depends on what you consider a comeback. Their last original song was a Japanese release on 15 December, 2021, while their last Korean comeback was on 12 November, 2021. In total, only 81 or 115 days, depending on how you count it.
