K-POP music is really popular these days in Taiwan.
Most of the females in Taiwan have a crush into Korean drama, music and even make-up.
We can say that no one doesn't know a Korean female group called Twice, I can even hear a foreign maid sing “shy! Shy! Shy! ” to a little girl when she is pushing a wheelchair for an old man in a park.
Especially the girl, Tzuyu, who is from Taiwan is even more popular than other members in the group.
在公園裡甚至還可聽見一位外傭推著老人家的輪椅，一邊對著一旁的小女孩唱「Shy! Shy! Shy!」
Recently they released their new song, TT.
Most of their fans love the song and also think the Halloween style is very novelty, but that cannot stand for all of the listeners.
For Korean and Taiwanese, most of the people know that TT means a crying face, but for some people from other countries may not think like that.
For Thai, the sound of TT is very similar with male genitals in their language.
And for English, the sound also let people think of another rude word that represents breast easily.
So now there are a lot of people on the internet discussing about the song is quite nasty and rude.
From this, we can realize that cultures do matter. The meaning of a thing, a word, a gesture or a behavior can change along with cultures.
When you pay a visit in other countries, remember to do some research about their cultures in case to break their custom without awareness.
Now let’s enjoy Twice new song, TT.
