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)

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.

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

    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 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.

I do not listen to Twice, but because so many people have started doing it, my rating has started going down. Please, codeforces, ban this performance-enhancing cheat from being allowed in competition. It is not fair for people like me

        Competitive programming is very popular in the kpop industry. Twice's MbakChaeyoung and Gfriend's Jungyerin are active on codeforces too.

The thing is after reading all the comments I am a little convinced that twice may do the trick.But there is an issue.Issue is their songs don't match my musical taste and I am not enjoying listening.They are a great band,I have no doubt in that.But I am not sure if I don't enjoy the songs fully how it can be helpful in helping me improve my cp skills.

I made International Master by listening to "Yes or Yes" on loop. However, there also was a time I did poorly while listening to Twice. The music probably has a relaxing effect which might have a slight positive correlation on performance, but make sure you're listening to songs you know very well. Otherwise, you'll end up getting distracted by the lyrics -- especially when Jihyo is singing ;)
