Girl group power at its best

K-pop girl group, TWICE, has been making waves since their inception in 2015. They started off on a reality show and are now under the wing of JYP Entertainment. Composed of Japanese, Korean, and Taiwanese members, TWICE has become a culturally diverse novelty that fans cannot get enough of.

Over the years, the 9-member ensemble has taken over the Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales Chart with two number one hits. To top it off, these young ladies have been hailed as the Best Female Group at the 2019 Mnet Music Awards.

With a surplus of cute factor and charisma, TWICE is a group that will definitely bring twice the fire and twice the power.
