JYP Entertainment girl group TWICE has become so popular that even their haters have their own fandom name now.
Having already won multiple major awards and setting several industry records, theres no questioning TWICEs popularity. And while the groups fandom ONCE is undoubtedly one of the largest fan clubs in K-Pop right now, the group is also receiving a lot of attention for having a large amount of anti-fans as well.
In fact, with so many haters constantly commenting on TWICE photos, videos, and news, fans of the group have dubbed TWICE haters Thrice, a play on the groups name and fandom.
According to fans on Twitter, the Thrice anti-fans are even joining together and are possibly planning a special light stick, logo, and even an official color.

While most idol groups have their fair share of anti-fans, ONCE have noticed that Thrice are constantly commenting on any news, photos, or videos featuring TWICE. Most noticeably, these anti-fans have constantly been purposely disliking TWICEs music videos. According to fans, three of TWICEs music videos (TT, Knock Knock, and Cheer Up) are among the top four most disliked videos on YouTube.

While TWICE is generally well-loved in Korea, having even been regarded as the new Nations Girl Group by Korean television broadcasts and news outlets, they have also started attracting more and more anti-fans as their fame continues to grow.
However, as haters continue to monitor all of TWICEs activities, they appear to also be helping to add to TWICEs success. Despite so many dislikes, TWICEs TT has quickly become the most watched girl group music video from South Korea, surpassing 189 million views in just a little over six months.
The two-hundred and twenty one thousand dislikes definitely amounted to tons of views for TWICE.
And while no one wants to have anti-fans, its quite evident that having haters is also a clear sign of success.
