1. [+498, -25] Considering JYP's future, it's more profitable for JYP to come out with a new girl group with Somi at the healm. Twice is doing exceptionally well on their own right now while Somi is popular in her own right, there's no reason for JYP to add Somi to Twice. The extra profit can't be that much more. Adding Somi to a new girl group would be much more profitable on JYP's end than just adding her to Twice. But I don't know... some of the music video interpretations do seem like Somi could be joining Twice.
2. [+489, -62] Twice has grown way too big for Somi to join now...
3. [+403, -63] She really doesn't match Twice though...
4. [+35, -4] Isn't it a win win for both for Somi to debt separately...
5. [+33, -1] Speculations have been going on for a while, even before 'Knock Knock'. When they were promoting 'TT', people thought Somi would open the door to join... but it was Park Jin Young who opened it ㅋㅋㅋ seems just like JYP's going for the noise marketing effect
6. [+26, -2] It'd be more profitable for JYP to make a 'Sixteen 2', why add another member to Twice?
7. [+22, -1] It is a sticky situation though. Somi's young but has a mature image which fits with Twice well but it's unfair to the other eliminated trainees from 'Sixteen' if she gets added~ Even adding Momo took away from the survival aspect of the show. Somi's still young so it's not a bad idea to wait 2-3 years for another girl group. I understand JYP's concerns since adding her now to Twice would be good for Somi in cementing the fanbase she's built up till now, and it'll also be capitalizing on her current fame.
8. [+19, -4] I like Twice and Somi but adding her to Twice isn't a good idea ㅠㅠ Original Twice fans might think she's just riding Twice's fame which will in turn piss off Somi's fans... For now, Somi should just focus on featurings like with Eric Nam or solo activities before debuting with a girl group later. Just my personal opinion~
9. [+16, -4] I like Twice and Jun Somi so I'd be happy if she joined Twice~ ㅋㅋ
10. [+15, -8] I just want Som to debut already ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ
