TWICE Introduction

TWICE is a girl group consisting of 9 members and it was formed through a reality show in Korea called ‘SIXTEEN’. What’s unique about the team is the members have different nationalities. 5 members are from South Korea, 3 of them are from Japan and one of them is from Taiwan, isn’t that awesome?

TWICE’s first single called ‘like ohh-ahh’ went viral over the internet and it took over various charts in Korea. Understandably, it has brought the group massive popularity.

Unlike some other girl groups, each member in TWICE has their own distinctive appeal and it makes it almost impossible to determine a bias (in K-pop, bias refers to your favourite member of the group).

 

1) Jihyo

Age: 19 (2016)

Birthday: 1st February 1997

Position: Leader & Main Vocalist

As a trainee, Jihyo was trained for 10 years in the company. 10 years! That’s impressive and scary at the same time. She trained with 2pm, Wonder Girls, Got7 and basically everyone in the company knows her.

Unsurprisingly, she was elected as the leader by the members. Before her debut, she was often criticized for being ‘overweight’. However, she is able to break the mould of traditional skinny beauty physiques. Now, she owns the stage with both her curvaceous body and impressive vocal.

 

2) Nayeon

Nationality: Korean

Age: 21 (2016)

Birthday: 22nd September 1995

Nayeon is often called for her resemblance with the infamous water-type Pokémon, Squirtle. Look at the photo above, isn’t she cute?

Her unique and memorable smile makes her the face of the group in TWICE (in K-pop, face of the group refers to the best looking member and he/she is often the centre image during performances).

She is also the first member to be confirmed in TWICE.

 

3) Jungyeon

Age: 20 (2016)

During Jungyeon’s debut, her ash-grey, chic short hair gives her a memorable look that captures the hearts of many fans. Similar to Amber from f(x), she does not fit the status quo of Korean beauty standard. But, that’s also the reason why we all love her.

The members often describe her as the peacekeeper of the group.

Fun fact: Her older sister is a Korean actress called Gong Seung Yeon.

 

4) Momo
