  1. TWICE Surpasses 300,000 Sales In Japan For First Time Ever With “Candy Pop” TWICE’s popularity in Japan is growing with the success of their second Japanese single “Candy Pop”! On February 24, JYP Entertainment confirmed that “Candy Pop” has surpassed over 400,000 copies manufactured within two weeks of release. As of February 23, TWICE has recorded 402,319 orders of “Candy Pop” for albums delivered from factories, with 311,929 more albums sold according to the Oricon chart. This sets a new record for TWICE! “Candy Pop” was released on February 7 and topped the Oricon daily singles chart for six consecutive days after release, ranking high on the weekly chart as well. According to Billboard Japan, “Candy Pop” sold 303,746 copies in its first week and topped the Hot 100 chart by coming in first for sales, views, streams, and video plays. TWICE has already received platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ) for their Japanese debut album “#TWICE” and first Japanese single “One More Time,” which were released in June and October of last year, respectively. TWICE received their third platinum certification with “Candy Pop,” and their record sales mark yet another impressive feat for the girl group. TWICE was the first Korean girl group in Japan to receive platinum certification for a single and album in the same year, and the first Korean artist to receive platinum certification for both their first album and single as well. With the success of “Candy Pop,” TWICE has now become the first foreign artist to surpass 200,000 sales for three consecutive releases from debut. Their latest record of over 400,000 albums manufactured and 300,000 albums sold according to Oricon acknowledge TWICE’s immense growth as Asia’s top representative girl group. Billboard Japan remarked, “Compared to their first Japanese single ‘One More Time,’ which had 219,131 sales in the first week, ‘Candy Pop’ recorded 199,125 sales in just the first three days. They sold 10,000 more copies after that, exceeding their first-week sales record by 85,000 copies. Even before their Japanese debut, TWICE was well received by listeners in the digital domain through streaming and downloads, but through their 2017 Japanese debut, they appeared on Kohaku Uta Gassen and increased their media appearances. As the opportunities to watch TWICE’s performances increase, their sales power is growing and becoming stronger as well.” TWICE recently completed their concert showcase tour “TWICE SHOWCASE LIVE TOUR 2018,” holding eight performances in six different cities in Japan. The group will be back in Japan later this year, with concerts scheduled in the Saitama Super Arena on May 26 and 27 and at the Osaka Castle Hall on June 2 and 3, for a total of four performances.

  8. [V Report Plus] Twice holds ASMR quiz show (Herald DB) Dahyun and Sana of Twice made fans guess what they were eating in a live broadcast on Naver’s V app Monday. As they were holding a voice-only broadcast, the fans asked them to work on autonomous sensory meridian response, or ASMR, which refers to specific audio such as whispering voices or sounds of eating food that allegedly induces a soothed, static and calm state of mind. While creating the rustling sound of snack pack, Dahyun said, “Guess what this is.” The fans soon got the answer by correctly identifying the sound of snack packs. “Then the next question! Guess what kind of snack we are having everyone,” Dahyun asked. This time, no one got the right answer. Waiting for a few minutes, the singer finally revealed the answer but the fans still remained puzzled saying, “I don’t know what it is,” “What is that?” “It’s my first time having this too,” Dahyun said. http://www.vlive.tv/video/60002 cr: KPOPHERALD

  10. A chance to show the world Korea’s cultural dexterity : Culture Olympiad adds festive elements to the Games A full moon-shaped installation on Gyeongpo Lake in Gangneung, Gangwon, is illuminated every evening during the Olympics. [KIM CHUL-HO] An array of cultural programs are being held across Pyeongchang and Gangneung, in Gangwon province, in tandem with the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics which kicked off on Feb. 9. Dubbing the collection of events the Culture Olympiad, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism has lined up a diverse range of cultural programs in the area to create a festive atmosphere during the Games, while inviting foreign visitors to enjoy the variety of cultural events that Korea has to offer. “We are taking this opportunity to show the world Korea’s diverse and creative culture,” said an official from the culture ministry. “In order to allow visitors from overseas get a good glance of the rich culture of Korea, we made sure that there is something to enjoy everyday throughout the Olympic Games.” The Korea JoongAng Daily picked out 10 events that are worth a visit. Tickets and more details of all the programs are available at the official homepage of the PyeongChang Culture Olympiad at www.culture2018.com/en/ and its blog at blog.naver.com/2018cultureolympiad. Performance: Scent of Thousand’s Year Until Feb. 24 at the Gangneung-Wonju University’s Haeram Culture Hall, a non-verbal performance showcasing Korea’s traditional dance, music and cutting-edge technology, shown as a part of Gangwon province’s Dano Festival will be staged daily. The festival is intrinsic to Gangwon’s local culture and has been recognized as a Unesco Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Dano is a Korean traditional holiday that falls on the fifth day of the fifth month of the lunar calendar, and the festival is held in celebration of the holiday. Titled “Scent of Thousand’s Year,” the performance breaks down the boundaries between the stage and the auditorium, inviting audience members to take part in this immersive show. The seats are divided into eight sections and the audience members are invited to sit while wearing masks. Colorful lights and innovative stage techniques all help to tell the traditional story. The performance starts at 5 p.m. on weekdays and at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. on weekends. Tickets cost 10,000 won. Ballet: Heo Nan Seol Heon - Su Wol Kyung Hwa The Korean National Ballet will be staging a modern ballet performance inspired by Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) era female poet Heo Nan Seol Heon’s life and her two major poems, “Gamwoo” and “Mongyugwangsangsan.” Choreographed by Kang Hyo-hyung, the performance was staged in Seoul last year and received great reviews from critics. Although the show is distinctly a modern dance performance, traditional Korean dance moves are also included in the choreography. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Gangneung Arts Center. The performance is free, however, seats must be reserved in advance via the Culture Olympiad’s official website. K-pop World Festa K-pop concerts are certainly included in this array of cultural performances for the PyeongChang Olympics. A number of K-pop artists will be visiting Pyeongchang to add to the festive mood during the international sporting event. There have been two concerts held so far, and another is scheduled to take place this upcoming Saturday. On Feb. 24, K-pop groups including Super Junior, B1A4, Laboum, TRCNG, KARD, and B.A.P will appear on stage. The concert starts at 6 p.m. The show is free and up to two tickets can be reserved. Light Art Show: Moonlight Lake Every night until Feb. 25, a sculpture of a full moon installed on the Gyeongpo Lake in Gangneung will be lit up for onlookers to enjoy. According to the organizers, the sculpture is a media art installation created in appreciation of the moon and the many tales about it. The moon illuminates after sunset and stays on until 10 p.m. Meanwhile, a light show will be held for 10 minutes every hour, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Measuring 15 meters in diameter, the full moon installation sits on the lake and a 70-meter-long bridge has been installed so that visitors can walk closer to the structure. Cheongsan Byeolgok During the Olympic Games and the Paralympic Games, which starts on March 9, the Solhyang Arboretum in Gangneung will light up every evening. The green arboretum transforms into a colorful light park at sunset. Visitors can walk through the whole arboretum - a stroll that will take about 90 minutes to complete. The light show starts at 6 p.m. and ends at 10 p.m. There’s a section open to anyone who visits, but a reservation is required for a free guided tour. Gangwon International Biennale 2018: The Dictionary of Evil At the Gangneung Green City Experience Center, which is located about a 10-minute-drive from the Gangneung KTX Station, visitors can enjoy artwork presented by both Korean and international artists, including big names like the Swiss artist Thomas Hirschhorn and Lebanese filmmaker and artist Akram Zataari. According to the biennale’s art director Hong Kyoung-han, the event attempts to reflect the “faces of evil” through the work and perspectives of the participating artists. The Gangwon International Biennale continues through March 18. Admission is free. Light PyeongChang - Nam June Paik and K-Art The works of highly-acclaimed Korean video artist Nam June Paik (1932-2006) are on display at the PyeongChang Olympic Plaza’s Culture-ICT pavilion. Until the end of the Olympic Games and then again during the Paralympic Games, the exhibition space invites visitors to enjoy 10 of Paik’s quintessential works, including “Turtle,” “M200” “Love is 10,000 miles.” Other artists’ works are also on display, including paintings from renowned artist Kim Whanki and more, allowing visitors to witness the overarching aesthetics and trends of the Korean art scene. Entrance is free if you have tickets to the PyeongChang Olympic Plaza or an event on the day you visit. Gangneung Winter Culture Festival Designed to promote the diversity of Gangneung’s local culture to the world during the Winter Olympics, the city has organized a culture festival offering numerous traditional events that visitors can take part in. There will be the a parade, a nongak (a dance that is traditionally performed by farmers) performance, a mask dance and much more held on the city’s Wolhwa Street. At the Daedohobu Office, numerous traditional games will be available for visitors to learn about and play. Foreign visitors can also try out hanbok (traditional Korean dress) here and take photographs. The festival ends on Feb. 25. For more information about the festival, visit www.gnwelcome.kr. Traditional Craft Making Experience Visitors can take this opportunity to create a traditional Korean craft and take it home as a souvenir. At the PyeongChang Olympic Plaza’s Traditional Experience Booth, visitors can try out making traditional crafts such as plaster air fresheners, mother of pearl medals, woodprinted eco bags and much more. According to organizers, the program is intended to introduce various elements found in Korean traditional paintings, such as flowers, trees, butterflies and landscapes. The booth will operate until Saturday and then again during the Paralympics. It opens at 10:30 a.m. during the Olympics and at 12:30 p.m. during the Paralympics, and closes at 4:00 p.m. Performance: Korea Simcheong The Korea Cultural Heritage Foundation’s performing arts group is presenting a performance that will highlight an array of traditional Korean culture including traditional dance, music and costumes through the popular Korean folk tale, Simcheong.

  13. [V Report Plus] Twice shows fans how to beat the Monday blues Twice offered tips to fans on how to get ready for Monday after the long Lunar New Year holiday in a live broadcast held via Naver’s V app Sunday. The nine groupmates appeared on camera one by one and did a dance move according to the “1, 2, 3” command. The odd movement of shaking the upper body and hands made the groupmates laugh but they finished the relay which started from Nayeon and ended with Tzuyu, without halt. Twice will hold “Twiceland Zone 2: Fantasy Park” concerts at Jamsil Arena in Seoul from May 18-20. http://www.vlive.tv/video/59821 cr: KPOPHERALD
  14. [INFO][Yonhap News Agency] TWICE to hold concerts in Seoul in May

    I can only lobby on a could-be Singapore stop for their next overseas tour if coming late this year. 2 venues off the radar that might be refreshing for JYPE and TWICE (both are outdoors): No.1: The Float at Marina Bay (or the newly termed NS Square) http://www.stadiumguide.com/float-marina-bay/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Float_@_Marina_Bay#Future_Plans_for_the_Stadium - Platform can hold up to 9,000 people. Stands can seat 30,000 max capacity. - Marina Bay Sands (where TWICE stayed over during their TWICE TV6 in Singapore shoot last year) overlooks the concert venue. - A combination of air, sea, land elements (It is no wonder this venue is loved and supported by Singaporeans to hold the annual National Day parade). Although, this means any concert can only be held in the months (e.g. September to December) after the National Day on August 9th and before the next preparation and rehearsals for next parade starts (typically at least 1/2 year before next parade). - Previously, S.M. Entertainment held its SMTown Live World Tour III concert in 2012 on The Float at Marina Bay to around 18,000 fans. - There will be a need to check with Singapore Sports Council(owner & operator) for availability of venue. There is also plenty of logistics, security and safety measures to prepare and oversee, since it would be outdoors. - If JYPE can pull off this once is a lifetime opportunity (and the weather helps too), I absolutely guarantee the concert at this venue shall be one of the most memorable for TWICE and ONCE. No.2: The Meadow (Bay South Garden) http://www.gardensbythebay.com.sg/en/book-a-venue/the-meadow.html - Seated capacity 3,600; Standing capacity 30,000 (approx.) - should be configurable. - At the Gardens By The Bay with the greenery, cityscape backdrop. Marina Bay Sands is in close proximity as well. - Transport would also be easily available: car parks, MRT etc - This would also be a memorable venue for TWICE to perform in and ONCE to chill out; an outdoor garden event space (Singapore's largest). Likewise, logistics, security and safety measures would also need to be well-managed for an outdoor concert. Yes, these look to be a "out of the world" project, ONCE can dream, TWICE can hope, JYPE can work something out.
