By stefdasca, history, 7 weeks ago, In English,

Ever since tzuyu_chou started advertising Twice at round #497, an increasing number of people have got to hear about this band, and it seems that for most of them, it was a great deal in their competing skills.

Even though at first I was reluctant about how can a K-pop band, especially Twice can improve people's CP skils, but after seeing that many guys with K-pop related accounts performing great made me start listening to Twice too and soon after this, I managed to get Master for the first time ever, after struggling in purple for a long time.

The examples can continue, so is listening to Twice really boosting cp skills?

I'd like to hear other successful stories too, so that i can be sure that my skill gain is not just a result of hard work.

I watched one of their youtube videos few minutes before the skyglow contest and I ended up winning the round! not sure if there is correlation though (maybe it just relax you a bit and therefore improves your performance)

Yes, it seems to be true :)

Ever since I started listening to Twice around September, I finally made 2600+.

I agree with what you wrote. I used to listen to Twice and reached mid CM from Expert. But when I stopped listening to Twice, I dropped to Expert again. Now I am listening to Twice again, let's see if I reach CM again.

        if you listen to twice enough, yes

        But listening to twice doesn't substitute hard work, it only stimulates performances

OK, we all have finally found out that listening to Twice really boosts cp skils, but what about another bands like BTS or Blackpink for example?

    According to my current experiences,

    BTS seems not to be a good option, but sample size is not big enough GustavK menna123

    Blackpink fans seem to benefit from it(I also listen to Blackpink), and i also know this guy too, who seems to perform good I_love_Rose

                  I hold you equally responsible for allowing, promoting, and agreeing with the joke. You are way worse than carrot iq. And you don't surprise me by saying "without any reason". Of course, anyone who thinks rape jokes are funny will obviously think i'm mad without any reason.

                  He's not my ex, but do I pity anyone who ever gets in a relationship with someone who makes rape jokes, or thinks they're funny, or thinks complaining about them is being immature or nonsense, rather than thinking this about the one who makes these jokes.

      I started listening to BTS and reached CM, but I've only done one contest since I started so the sample size might not be- so this proves that listening to Kpop in general improves programming skills

Yes, but only very slightly.

I have heard from sqrtdecompton that listening to Havanna boosts way more (so much he got a gold medal in recent IOI), and have confirmed it with rigorous testing and mathematical proof.

Of course, proof is left exercise to the reader.
