Before going further with the controversies, here's the English translation of 'Yes or Yes' lyrics.



Hey boy

Look, I'm gonna make this simple for you

You got two choices…

Yes, or yes


Ah ah ah ah ah

Choose only one of the two, yes or yes?

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

Make your choice, come on, yes or yes?


Since when was I so selfish?

Did I ever want something this eagerly, eagerly?

Everyone, everyone is surprised at how shameless I am

(Come on and tell me yes)

My scenario has become more daring than I thought

I'd say this plan is perfect, quite satisfying, satisfying

I don't care, I don't care no matter what others say ooh ooh ooh ooh

(You better tell me yes)


I have decided yes!

Now it's time to hear your answer

If it's too hard, there are examples to choose from

You don't have to waste your time thinking


Don't know what you'll choose, so I prepared these options

Choose only one of the two, yes or yes?

Don't know what you want, so I prepared these options

Make your choice, come on, yes or yes?


I will say no to your no, is it me or us?

I respect your choice but reject your rejection

There is only one answer, the choice is up to you

It's all up to you

Choose only one of the two, yes or yes?


Do you mean it? (Do not guess)

Are you serious? (Do not ask)

Don't give me that unsure side-to-side, I want a sure up-and-down

There's no letters N and O

I'll erase them from today

There's no need to think too hard

The answer is yes yes yo!


You bring out my hidden selfishness

Your eyes and my curiosity about you

Make my heart burning

My heart burnt, burnt, burnt

(You better hurry up)


To make it simple

Whatever you choose, you will be with me

Though it may seem a bit absurd 

Though you might say, I’m insisting you 

I’ll make you to never regret


Don’t know what you’ll choose, so I prepared these options

Choose only one of the two, yes or yes?

Don’t know what you want, so I prepared these options

Make your choice, come on, yes or yes?


I will say no to your no, is it me or us?

I respect your choice but reject your rejection

There is only one answer, the choice is up to you

Now it’s all up to you


Maybe not, maybe yes 

Make it more clearly, show me how you feel

Open your ears, don’t you hear it?

It's simple, Y-E-S, hey!


Choose only one of the two, yes or yes?

Make your choice, come on, yes or yes? 

Here is one more, yes or yes or yes?

Take your pick, the choice is up to you


Don't know what you'll choose, so I prepared these options 

Choose only one of the two, yes or yes? 

Don't know what you want, so I prepared these options 

Make your choice, come on, yes or yes? 


I will say no to your no, is it me or us?

I respect your choice but reject your rejection 

There is only one answer, the choice is up to you

It's all up to you (it's all up to you, ooh)


Choose only one of the two, yes or yes?



Lyrics Translation: GENIUS


Some misinterpret the line "I respect your choice but reject your rejection" which suggest a disregarding consent. It's understood as a promotion of rape culture. On social media, several fans even expressed that this time, they could not think that the lyrics are not offensive and said that JYP Entertainment has indeed gone across the line. 


On the contrary, defenders said that it has nothing to do with the promotion of rape culture. They believe that it's just ridiculous to think that TWICE members, who are female, promote a rape culture. They also added that there's not even any male model in the MV of the song. 


What do you think about this, people?
