TWICE Facts:

– In December 2013, JYP Entertainment announced their plans to debut a new six-member girl group in the first half of 2014. This group was significant as it would be the company’s first female group since the debut of miss A in 2010. The group was initially referred to as “6mix,” and in 2014, it was confirmed that JYP trainees Cecilia and Lena would be part of the group. There were also rumors that Nayeon, Jeongyeon, and Jihyo would join.
– However, by early 2015, Cecilia and Lena had left the company, leading to the cancellation of their debut. In 2015, JYP’s founder, Park Jin Young, announced a new approach to forming a girl group. This time, it would be through the survival reality show called “SIXTEEN.” Sixteen JYP trainees would compete to secure a spot in the new seven-member girl group, which would eventually become TWICE.
– The show started on May 5 and concluded with the selection of Nayeon, Jeongyeon, Dahyun, Sana, Jihyo, Mina, and Chaeyoung. During the finale, Park Jin Young surprised everyone by announcing his intention to add two more members to the group, expanding it to a nine-member girl group. Tzuyu was added by audience vote, and Momo was chosen by Park Jin Young himself, marking the official formation of TWICE.
– On October 7, 2015, JYP launched the official website for the group and made an announcement on social media. They revealed that TWICE would debut with the mini-album titled “The Story Begins,” featuring the title track “Like Ooh-Ahh.”
– On October 20, the album and the music video for “Like Ooh-Ahh” were released online and through the Naver “V LIVE” App. The group also held their debut showcase on the same day, where they performed “Like Ooh-Ahh” along with dance tracks “Going Crazy” and “Do It Again.”
– The music video for the title track quickly gained popularity, reaching 50 million views within five months of their debut. TWICE set a record as the most-viewed debut music video for any K-pop group and later became one of the first K-pop groups to have their debut music video surpass 100 million views. This marked the beginning of TWICE’s successful journey in the K-pop industry.
– They have so far released three Korean albums and four Japanese albums.
– The recent album they have released is their tenth Japanese single on May 31, 2023, titled “Hare Hare”.

Endorsement:

– They have endorsed several brand over the course including “Lotte Duty Free”, “Donga Otsuka”, “YMobile”, “Estée Lauder”, “Nintendo Switch”, and “Shopee Philippines”. 

Major Work:

– Their most popular songs include “The Feels”, “MOONLIGHT SUNRISE”, and “Talk that Talk”.

Awards:

– They have several awards under their belt including “Artist of the Year (Daesang)”, “Artist of the Year (Bonsang)”, “Album Bonsang”, “Best Female Group”, and “Most Popular Artist”.
