  3. [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

  5. [V Report Plus] Who has the most and least worries among Twice members? (Naver V app) Jeongyeon, Sana and Tzuyu of girl group Twice communicated with their fans in a live broadcast held in the waiting room for the KBS talk show “Hello Counselor” via Naver’s V app Sunday. As the KBS show centers on people sharing their struggles, the girl group talked about their recent concerns and picked Twice bandmates who have the most or least worries. “Tzuyu has a lot of worries,” Jeongyeon said without hesitation. “She has many thoughts in her mind.” Tzuyu, in reply, picked the person who worries the least: Chaeyoung. “She may have her own worries but she always takes them lightly,” she said. “(She says) ‘Well, I can do that,’ ‘It will be fine,’” Jeongyeon agreed.

A source from “Hello Counselor” confirmed the news and added, “They will be recording their episode on April 1.” Tzuyu, Jeongyeon, and Sana will meet with the people who have submitted their concerns to the show and help them find solutions to their problems. It will especially be interesting to see whether Tzuyu and Sana, who are from Taiwan and Japan respectively, will bring a fresh perspective based on their different life experiences.

  7. TWICE’s Jeongyeon Reveals One Of Her Insecurities On “Hello Counselor” TWICE member Jeongyeon appeared on KBS 2TV’s “Hello Counselor” along with fellow members Tzuyu and Sana. See Also: TWICE To Return To Singapore For "TWICELAND ZONE 2: Fantasy Park" Tour “Hello Counselor” is a talk show where ordinary people share their worries and a panel of celebrity hosts and guests listen and give advice. On the April 9 episode, MC Lee Young Ja asked the girl group members if they were the “three members in charge of visuals” for TWICE. After some silence, Jeongyeon jokingly answered, “Yes. That’s right.” The MC then asked, “Is there any part of your appearance that you don’t like?” Jeongyeon confessed, “My hands aren’t pretty. They have many wrinkles.” MC Shin Dong Yup reassured her and admitted, “My hands are too big.” He then covered his face with his hand to show its size and surprised the audience. MC Kim Tae Gyun then said, “My face is big, but my hands are small,” and also covered his face with his hand which only concealed half of his face. TWICE released their mini album and title track “What is Love?” on April 9 and topped all major realtime charts two hours of its release. Source (1) CR: soompi
  8. We’ve walked on a ‘flower road’ from our debut: TWICE The nonet thanked their fans for the love that has been showered on them and shared with us their plans for the rest of the year. By Lee Wei Lin Posted: 21 Jun 2018 09:52Updated: 21 Jun 2018 10:00 [Please visit Toggle.SG website to read up the original article and watch the videos, as well as other entertainment news!] We’ve walked on a ‘flower road’ from our debut: TWICE Videos: Tay Yixuan Local fans of TWICE – known collectively as Singapore ONCE, have probably been suffering from a serious bout of post-concert withdrawals ever since the girls wrapped up their one-night only extravaganza on our little red dot last week. Toggle was invited to speak with the nonet in an exclusive 15-minute interview (yes, we know, you’d do anything to trade places with us) shortly before their press conference was held, where they answered three (out of the 10 submitted) approved questions. They also took the opportunity to design personalised boards – a task that they gladly participated in, especially after we told them that their handiwork would be given away to Singapore ONCE. During the interview, they shared with us their thoughts about their journey as TWICE members since their debut in October 2015. “It’s really been a flower road (a smooth-sailing journey with lots of good fortune) for us since debut, hasn’t it?” Jihyo, who is also the leader of the group, said as the other girls nodded their agreement. “We’ve received lots of love from our fans, and when we did our overseas tour last year, we received the love from fans all over the world, which made us feel very blessed for the past three years.” Dahyun added, “Thanks to our ONCE, we’ve also received trophies on music programmes, and even a daesang (highest award) at the year-end ceremonies. We have so many beautiful memories, and we’re so lucky to have had our ONCE with us all this time.” Which of the other members’ unit stages does TWICE want to try out? During their TWICELAND ZONE 2: Fantasy Park, the girls also took the opportunity to perform unit stages, which we got the girls to talk about at the interview. Dahyun shared, “Until now, I’ve been performing with a bright and fun image so I thought of having a change this time around. I wanted to do something that is cooler so I tried Rain’s ‘Rainism’ and called it ‘Dahyunism’.” Momo grinned, “Personally, I think that Dahyun’s performance is very impactful. However, in my opinion, Dahyun’s performance is something that only she can do, so instead of wanting to try it out, I just want to tell her that I really enjoyed watching her perform.” Jeongyeon added, “For myself and Nayeon, we did a duet of Baek Ji Young and Taecyeon’s ‘My Ear’s Candy’.” Nayeon shared, “We wanted to do a duet, so finding a duet song was the priority for us. We’re really happy with our performance so we’re not jealous of the other units at all.” For Chaeyoung, she explained, “For us, we did Wax’s ‘OPPA’. It was the three of us (Mina, Sana and herself) who made up the unit. For me, I’ve done a lot of cooler performances so I wanted to have a bright and fun one this time around. Originally, it was just Sana and I who decided on it, but afterwards, Mina said that she wanted to show the cute side of herself as well and that’s how the unit ended up with the three of us.” What does TWICE want to accomplish by the end of the year? Sana chimed in, “I didn’t really want to say this because they said that they’re very satisfied with their performance, but we perform right after Nayeon and Jeongyeon so I always felt that their performance looks very fun. If I could try doing their performance, I’ll pick Jihyo since we made eye contact.” Meanwhile, Tzuyu explained that she previously put on more “bubbly and fun performances, so I wanted to put on a cool performance this time. That’s why Momo, Jihyo and I performed Beyoncé’s ‘End of Time’.” Chaeyoung mused, “I feel that Tzuyu, Jihyo and Momo’s performance was really cool from the first time that I saw it. Their choreography at the start of the song is really charismatic but whenever they’re performing, I’m at the backstage changing so I wasn’t able to watch it. I really want to see their performance so later on, if I have the chance, I’ll definitely watch the DVD to catch it.” Come July, TWICE will be releasing their second special album, Dance The Night Away, and Chaeyoung shared that there are many songs that are well-suited for summer. Sana added, “My longtime goal was to be able to meet more ONCE. Because of our current tour, I think I’ll be able to achieve this goal as we’ll be able to see our fans around the world. That’s why I think I’m closer to achieving my goal.” What TWICE wrote and designed on their personalised boards? TWICE’s gift for Singapore ONCE While TWICE may have bid their Singapore ONCE a goodbye (for now, at least), Toggle wants to give Singapore ONCE something to remember them by regardless of whether or not you managed to make it to their show.

  9. [V Report Plus] How did Twice celebrate Black Day? (Naver V app) Sana and Dahyun of girl group Twice communicated with fans in a live broadcast held via Naver’s V app Saturday. “Once, I heard that it’s the day we should eat black bean noodles,” Sana said. “It’s Black Day!” Dahyun said. On Black Day, celebrated on April 14, singles who did not receive any gifts on Valentine’s Day or White Day get together to eat Korean black bean noodles and sympathize with one another about being single. “We enjoyed (black bean noodles)!” Sana said. “What’s really interesting was that we said we wanted to eat black bean noodles today and we found out that it was Black Day today,” Dahyun said. http://www.vlive.tv/video/66871 CR: KPOPHERALD
  10. 1. Nayeon Nayeon was a trainee for five years and two months before she debuted with TWICE. Nayeon and JYP Entertainment were fated to be. When she was a little girl, she entered a modeling competition and was noticed and casted by the agency. Unfortunately, her mother refused to allow her to model and Nayeon was unable to begin training with the agency. By 2010, Nayeon decided the stage life is what she wanted. She auditioned at JYP Entertainment’s 7th Open Audition without telling her family. When Nayeon passed as the second best out of the whole group that auditioned, she proved she had not only the passion, but the potential too and ended up signing as a trainee with the agency. Nayeon had always been the ace card. Aside from her flying colors at the audition, she also won the Seoul Art College Dean’s Award and the Spris Star Award. She became a popular trainee with great potential to become a super idol JYP Entertainment saw her as the gem she is and supported her so she could gain more experience in the K-Pop world even before she debuted. She appeared in GOT7‘s “Girls Girls Girls”, San E‘s “You Can’t Go”, and miss A‘s “Only You” music videos. Nayeon also modeled for several brands like Nintendo Wii’s Just Dance 2, Smart School Uniform, TN cosmetics, and many more. Viewers grew curious about her when she appeared as an aspiring idol-student in Dream High 2. Fully prepped with the talent and training, Nayeon was naturally selected to become one of the members of JYP Entertainment’s next girl group called 6MIX. The debut of this girl group, however, became cancelled when it lost two members and faced difficulties in replacing the members with the right trainees. Around a year later from the cancelled debut, Nayeon joined the TV audition program SIXTEEN, held by JYP Entertainment to seek out the qualifying final members of the agency’s newly planned girl group. Nayeon, a trusted trainee that had J. Y. Park‘s faith and support, became the first to be announced as an official member of TWICE. “I trust Nayeon now. She acts a strong core for the team and leads her teammates.” — J. Y. Park 2. Jeongyeon Jeongyeon trained for five years and eight months prior to her debut as TWICE. Jeongyeon auditioned for JYP Entertainment when she was younger. Unfortunately, she didn’t make the cut her first time around. This did not stop Jeongyeon from pursuing her dream of becoming a K-Pop star though. By 2010, Jeongyeon tried again at the 6th JYP Entertainment Open Audition and passed with an Ivy Star Award. In fact, she heard back from both SM Entertainment and JYP Entertainment on the same day, but she chose JYP Entertainment because she was more attracted to the agency. “I have never thought about debuting with any other agency than JYP Entertainment.” — Jeongyeon Around 2014, Jeongyeon had high hopes of debuting as one of the members for 6MIX, along with Nayeon. With the unfortunate cancellation of the production of this group, Jeongyeon fell into a state of despair and actually didn’t attend her trainings at the agency. She spent a couple months part-timing at a bakery and realized she liked baking. Right about when she was going to pick up baking as a new career path, JYP Entertainment called her to ask if she would like to appear on SIXTEEN. Thank goodness Jeongyeon decided to return to the agency and participate in the TV audition program, because she was amazing on the show. Repeatedly ranking within the top three contestants on the program, Jeongyeon was widely accepted by the viewers as a potential member. When SIXTEEN ended July 7th, 2015, Jeongyeon was confirmed to be debuting with TWICE. With her “girl crush” traits, Jeongyeon is now a popular member that attracts both male and female fans alike. 3. Momo Momo was a trainee for three years and seven months before debuting with TWICE. Momo has always been an avid dancer. She learned how to dance at a studio since she was three years old. While practicing at the STEP OUT Dance Studio, located in Osaka, Japan, Momo came across the opportunity to appear in a Korean singer Lexy‘s “Ma People” music video. By 2011, her dream to become a successful entertainer grew strong as Momo auditioned as a four-member girl group for the Superstar K3‘s preliminary round in Japan. Unfortunately, Momo didn’t make the cut for this program either. It was JYP Entertainment that discovered Momo through YouTube. A video of Momo’s dance performance was uploaded, which intrigued the agency’s casting team. Momo was contacted to audition. She tried out with her old sister, but passed by herself. She felt bad about being the only one to be selected, but after discussing things with her family, she decided to pursue her dream in Korea and began training with JYP Entertainment immediately. Momo is said to have been a part of the agency’s “Japanese Girl Group” in the making. When the production was dropped, Momo – along with the two other Japanese members of TWICE – signed up for SIXTEEN. While she originally did not make the cut on the final episode of the show, Momo was chosen by J. Y. Park himself to be an additional member of the debuting group because she offered dance skills like no other trainee could. “I have chosen Momo whom I believe will improve TWICE’s dancer line and the group’s performance overall.” — J. Y. Park 4. Sana Sana trained for three years and seven months before she debuted as TWICE. Since 2009 when she was in 6th grade, Sana practiced dancing for around two years at the EXPG Osaka branch of the EXILE Dance Academy to become a singer. So for Sana, singing and dancing have always been her passion and dream. When Sana was in middle school, by 2012, she was discovered when she was out shopping with her friend. A JYP Entertainment casting associate noticed her and approached her. The friend who had been with her at the time spoke Korean and helped the agent and Sana communicate. Sana later explained she decided to try out for the JYP Global Audition because the casting associate showed her pictures of the Dream High cast as the agency’s managing artists. Sana was a fan of the K-Drama and recognized the artists. Sana passed the audition, but her parents were not too sure about allowing her to quit middle school and sending her overseas by herself to pursue an entertainment career. The reason became clear, however, when Sana’s mother took Sana to see a 2PM concert and Sana claimed she wanted to be on the stage too. Sana moved to Korea in April of 2012 and began training with JYP Entertainment. During her training period, Sana appeared in several music videos. With her eye-catching visual, fans wondered who she could be in GOT7’s “A” and 2PM’s Junho‘s “Feel” music videos. Sana remained a part of the Japanese girl group project under development by the agency. When another close-to-debut girl group, 6MIX, lost a member, Sana was chosen to replace the position. She received a great amount of attention as a member of this potential girl group. Unfortunately, the girl group’s debut was cancelled and Sana had to wait another year before appearing on SIXTEEN. Sana was stable throughout the show and won her way into debuting with TWICE. She is a widely loved member now, with fans who promise “No Sana, No Life”. 5. Jihyo Jihyo was a JYP Entertainment trainee for over a decade. It was August 2004 when Jihyo entered the 1st Junior Naver Child Acting Star competition and won second place. While her parents signed her up to do this, Jihyo showed great potential and was recognized by JYP Entertainment’s casting team. She was casted by the agency immediately. From July 2005 to her debut in October 2015, Jihyo endured ten years and four months of training with JYP Entertainment. Throughout the years, she watched the Wonder Girls and miss A debut while she remained a trainee. Jihyo did receive some exposure during her trainee period though, as she modeled for brands like TN cosmetics and Reebok. Jihyo was also a part of the members who were preparing to debut as the girl group 6MIX. When the project was dropped, Jihyo had no choice but to continue training and hope for a different chance, as she had already devoted ten years to pursuing this career and could not change her path. She later shared that during these years of her debut getting pushed around and cancelled caused a tremendous amount of stress for her and she had developed a binge eating habit at the time. When she joined SIXTEEN, Jihyo received somewhat of a criticism for being chubbier than the girl group standard. She proved herself, however, with pure talent and diligence and won her way into the finalists’ group. She also worked hard to shed the pounds she had put on from the stress eating. Viewers fell in love with Jihyo as she journeyed through the final stages of her decade-long traineeship and stepped closer to debut. “I have never doubted your singing and dancing skills, have I?” — J. Y. Park 6. Mina Mina trained for a short year and ten months prior to debuting with TWICE. Mina started off as a ballet student at the prestigious Obayashi Sacred Heart School in Japan. So she has always been a dancer and performer at heart. She didn’t know she wanted to become a K-Pop idol at this point though. Then in middle school, she became interested in K-Pop after a friend of hers suggested they learn the choreography to a Girls Generation song. She dove deeper into the world of K-Pop after attending the 2012 Golden Disk Award held in Osaka, Japan. Eventually, Mina signed up at a K-Pop dance school called URIZIP to learn K-Pop choreographies. Mina was approached by a JYP Entertainment casting associate when she was shopping with her mother in Osaka. Mina passed her JYP Global Audition and signed as a trainee with the agency in January of 2014. She dropped out of the school and moved to Korea to pursue her idol training. During her training time, Mina got to appear in some music videos too. She was in miss A’s “Only You” and 2PM’s Wooyoung’s “R.O.S.E” music videos. By May 2015, only 16 months into her traineeship, Mina joined SIXTEEN to compete for a spot in TWICE. While the duration may seem short, especially for a JYP Entertainment trainee, a fellow trainee who trained with Mina mentioned that Mina came ready and could sing and dance well when she signed with JYP Entertainment. Now, Mina adds grace and elegance to TWICE’s performances and attracts tons of fans as one of the three Japanese wonders of this amazing girl group. 7. Dahyun Dahyun was a trainee for three years and four months before she got to debut. While Dahyun’s most popular past video of the “Eagle Dance” from 6th grade has nothing specific to do with her debut, it does show that Dahyun has always been passionate about dancing whenever, wherever. Years later, when she was in middle school, Dahyun entered an adolescent dance competition by choreographing and arranging music on her own. A JYP Entertainment casting associate who attended the competition noticed her potential and offered to cast her as the agency’s trainee. While training with JYP Entertainment, Dahyun had some opportunities to appear in other artists’ music videos. She was in GOT7’s “Stop Stop It” and 2PM’s Wooyoung’s “R.O.S.E” videos, gaining some more exposure since the eagle dance. Dahyun’s participation in SIXTEEN shed light on the eagle dance again. She used this to her advantage and got a lot of attention on the first episode of the audition program by recreating the dance. Aside from the dance though, fans grew attached to her carefree spirit. She continued to improve throughout the show and ended up winning a spot in TWICE to debut. “Dahyun has been chosen because although her skills are still unstable, she has the superstar potential that cannot be gained with training or practicing. She knows how to grab people’s eyes.” — J. Y. Park Fans appreciate Dahyun’s presence in the team, as the ball of energy who likes to have fun and is truly full of talent underneath all the goofing around. 8. Chaeyoung Chaeyoung trained with JYP Entertainment for three years and five months to debut with TWICE. Chaeyoung never doubted her goal of wanting to become a singer. In fact, she wasn’t shy to chase her dream. She signed up for dance classes in 2011, when she was in 6th grade. While honing her dance skills at a dance academy, Chaeyoung auditioned for PLEDIS Entertainment as well. By 2012, she passed JYP Entertainment’s audition and was signed to become a trainee in June of the same year. Her dance school uploaded a picture of Chaeyoung in class, titled “Chaeyoung Passed JYP Entertainment’s Audition! Last Class” and captioned, “Chaeyoung from Monday,Wednesday,Friday 7:10PM class had her last lesson today. Congratulations on passing the JYP Entertainment audition, Chaeyoung! Come see us often!” During her traineeship with JYP Entertainment, Chaeyoung appeared in GOT7’s “Stop Stop It” music video, along with Dahyun and Momo. By exposing herself little by little and building up camera experience, Chaeyoung prepared herself well and was ready when she joined SIXTEEN. While Chaeyoung received minimal coverage throughout the show, her talent and personality gained her a substantial fan base that supported her to ranking high. 9. Tzuyu Tzuyu remained a trainee for three years prior to finally debuting as a part of TWICE. Tzuyu shared on TWICE TV that she signed up for dance classes because she had always been fond of dancing. Around 2012, when the dance school filmed Tzuyu dancing at the recital and uploaded the video to YouTube, JYP Entertainment’s casting team watched it and became interested in Tzuyu. While Tzuyu’s face barely shows in this video, the agency knew exactly what it wanted. The casting associate flew to Taiwan and saw Tzuyu dance in person. When the associate recorded Tzuyu’s dance to the agency in Korea, the casting team gave the okay to recruit Tzuyu. She was signed into the traineeship immediately. On SIXTEEN, while Tzuyu’s visual received a tremendous amount of attention from the viewers, her talent remained questionable. In the earlier episodes, J. Y. Park criticizes Tzuyu for not having enough charm to be a debuting girl group member. On SIXTEEN, while Tzuyu’s visual received a tremendous amount of attention from the viewers, her talent remained questionable. In the earlier episodes, J. Y. Park criticizes Tzuyu for not having enough charm to be a debuting girl group member. Along with Momo, Tzuyu was not in the original seven chosen to be TWICE. However, J. Y. Park saw potential in the incredible amount of improvements Tzuyu has made throughout the show and decided to give her a chance. “Tzuyu was the one whose skills improved the most. The best way to see how passionate a person is to check how much he or she is trying to get better. Based on that, I believe Tzuyu is serious and desperate about this.” — J. Y. Park credits:koreaboo

  13. Well well... What is love came in and hit us like a truck, so here we are, gathering our hearts pieces. For that I brought the angel Sana to help us(*Inserts dubu cringing gif) Hahah, Sana is definitely my favorite twice member. I really identify myself with her loudness and the excess of energy and silliness(I'm not sure if that's a good thing tho). I was with a weight in my conscience for not giving her a fitting painting, so here I am, trying to make amends <3 As always, I put lots of love and effort in this, I hope that you like it and that it somehow reaches her <3 The speedpainting is finally here! Check it out <3 @Phebe(sorry for tagging you again ^^') Since I can't change a post title, is there a way for me to delete the previous one in order to avoid duplicates? That way I wont be bothering too much haha xD.

  15. TWICE Says They’re Amazed By Park Jin Young’s Ability To Write Lyrics From Girls’ Perspective TWICE expressed their amazement at JYP Entertainment founder Park Jin Young’s songwriting skills on “Yoo Hee Yeol‘s Sketchbook”! See Also: TWICE’s “What Is Love?” Becomes Fastest K-Pop Girl Group MV To Hit 40 Million Views During the April 14 episode of the KBS music variety show, TWICE talked about their new title track “What is Love?” and the meaning behind the song’s lyrics. Leader Jihyo remarked, “Producer Park Jin Young personally composed our title track this time. The song is about a girl wanting to experience the love she learned about in books, movies, and dramas for herself in real life.” MC Yoo Hee Yeol jokingly replied, “I heard that Park Jin Young wrote your new song and was very worried. But as soon as I heard it, I thought that it would do well. Fortunately, there was no ‘JYP’ in the [song’s] introduction.” As the TWICE members all cracked up at his comment, Yoo Hee Yeol went on to ask, “[Park] Jin Young also wrote all the lyrics himself, right?” After TWICE confirmed that he had, he continued, “I looked at the lyrics, and they were totally from the perspective of a young girl. How does Park Jin Young write [lyrics] like that?” TWICE earnestly replied, “We want to know too. We’re really curious ourselves.” Yoo Hee Yeol then asked the group to pick the line from “What is Love?” that they found most girlish, and several of the members instantly agreed on Sana’s line, “They say it’s sweet like candy/They say it feels like flying through the sky.” Nayeon speculated, “In my opinion, it seems like producer [Park Jin Young] wrote the lyrics while using the ideal image of a young girl in his mind and imagining [her perspective].” Jeongyeon added, “He also choreographs our dances,” while the other members chimed in, “He even teaches us the choreography himself.” Expressing his disbelief, Yoo Hee Yeol asked TWICE which part Park Jin Young had choreographed. To his surprise, they revealed that he had choreographed the dance to the same girlish line that they had mentioned earlier. You can check out TWICE’s performances from the show here!

  16. Watch: TWICE’s Aegyo Makes Lee Kwang Soo Want To Change His Name On “Running Man” On the latest episode of “Running Man,” TWICE brought Lee Kwang Soo to his knees with their adorable aegyo! The April 29 broadcast of the SBS variety show featured an aegyo acrostic poem battle, in which the TWICE members competed to come up with the cutest acrostic poem using a cast member’s name. Nayeon went first, using Kim Jong Kook’s name to put her adorable charms on full display. The “Running Man” cast members couldn’t hold back their smiles, with Kim Jong Kook screaming and hiding his face in embarassment. Yoo Jae Suk commented admiringly, “She’s an aegyo expert,” while Lee Kwang Soo passionately declared, “She needs to be designated a Living National Treasure immediately!” The next challenger, TWICE’s Jihyo, also chose Kim Jong Kook’s name for her own acrostic poem. With Kim Jong Kook’s name proving to be a popular choice, Lee Kwang Soo surmised that the idols were opting to use it because the “Kook” syllable was easy to play up in a cute way. Yang Se Chan enviously remarked, “Wow, it must be Jong Kook’s day today,” while Lee Kwang Soo jealously lamented, “How come my name isn’t Lee Kwang Kook?!” In the end, however, both Yang Se Chan and Lee Kwang Soo were able to enjoy their own moments in the spotlight: Sana chose to address her acrostic poem to her partner Yang Se Chan, while Nayeon used Lee Kwang Soo’s name for her encore round. After hearing Nayeon’s adorable poem, Lee Kwang Soo couldn’t help screaming in delight as he fell to the ground. Check out the clip of Nayeon kicking off the aegyo battle below!

  17. Exclusive: TWICE Invites Fans To A Night Of Wonder And Delight At “TWICELAND ZONE 2: Fantasy Park” Concert TWICE invited fans to an enthralling experience as they held their “TWICELAND ZONE 2: Fantasy Park” solo concerts from May 18 to 20 at the Jamshil Indoor Stadium in Seoul. It was an evening of delight and wonder that began with the members of TWICE appearing in swings suspended above the stage as they sang “You In My Heart.” They had everyone dancing along as they performed hits like “Like OOH-AHH,” “Cheer Up,” and “Likey,” as well as other dance tracks like “Ponytail” and “Hold Me Tight.” Keeping with their fantasy park theme, the stage was decorated like a theme park and dancers appeared in a variety of costumes to give the appearance of TWICE being the highlight performance of a theme park parade. TWICE seemed to be taking fans through various areas of their fantasy park with different sets and outfits. First moving to a sparkling winter wonderland with a rendition of “Someone Like Me” and “Turtle” and then an utilizing phones mounted on selfie sticks to play with various selfie filters and goof around. They also showed a different side when they appeared in suits to perform “Touchdown” and “Signal,” as well as a cover of BoA’s “Valenti.” The covers continued and gave the members the opportunity to take on various genres and concepts. First up was Dahyun, who covered Rain’s “Rainism” and made it her own as “Dahyunism.” After the performance, she also shared that her cane had unfortunately broken during the stage, and she was given the chance to recreate the moment. Not having a cane anymore, Dahyun improvised by using the straw from her water bottle and had everyone laughing with her quick thinking. Following her was Jihyo, Momo, and Tzuyu, who performed Beyoncé’s “End of Time.” Tzuyu stated, “We wanted to try a cool concept that was different from our usual sweet and cute concept,” and all three agreed that they were happy with the way the performance came out. Nayeon and Jeongyeon took on “My Ear’s Candy” by Baek Ji Young and 2PM’s Taecyeon, taking turns to wear a pair of sunglasses to transform into their JYP senior. They later explained, “We were so nervous about doing Taecyeon’s parts. We studied his videos a lot to truly get into character and we kept telling ourselves, ‘I am a beast-dol.'” Lastly, Mina, Sana, and Chaeyoung performed Wax’s “Oppa,” and after the performance, they also called out to their female fans and younger fans as they said, “While we were rehearsing, we kept talking about how our female fans and younger fans would be sad that we’re only calling out to our oppas.” The members then changed up the lyrics from “Oppa” to “ONCE” so they could call out to all of their fans at the same time. Following the unit performances, the festivities continued with hits like “Knock Knock,” “What is Love?,” “TT,” and “Heart Shaker,” as well as other hidden gems from their albums like “Sweet Talker,” “Only You,” and “Missing U.” TWICE also covered WINNER’s 2017 song “Really Really” and performed “FFW,” a track from their “Twicetagram” album that had never been performed before. The members continuously moved between the various extended stage areas to get one step closer to their fans, and their fans reciprocated by cheering as loudly as they could. There was even a special moment near the end of the concert when fans made hearts over their heads with their arms and the concert venue was filled with a sea of hearts directed at TWICE. Just when it looked like the concert was over, TWICE returned to the stage for their encore, performing “One in a Million,” “What is Love?” (Acoustic Version) and a medley of their hit songs. For approximately three hours, TWICE and ONCE shared a special and unforgettable experience together. Having captivated 18,000 fans across three sold-out concerts in Seoul, TWICE is set to take their fantasy park to Japan next. They will perform at the Saitama Super Arena on May 26 and 27, and at the Osaka-jo Hall on June 2 and 3, all of which are sold out. TWICE also has a concert in Singapore planned as well. CR: soompi

  21. [V Report] Fans react to Japanese broadcast of ‘Misamo’ of Twice (Naver's V app) Mina, Sana and Momo of Twice surprised their fans with surprise V Live broadcasts on Monday. The three Japanese members of the nine-piece girl group, also collectively known as ‘Misamo,’ went live on Naver’s V app for five consecutive broadcasts. The trio mostly conversed in Japanese throughout the live broadcast, which went on for about 50 minutes in total. Some fans pointed out that non-Japanese speaking fans were being sidelined. V app livestreams, though generally spontaneous and informal, are designed to serve as a platform for communication between stars and their fans. Understandably, some of the tri-national group’s fans, which boast a huge Korean base, expressed frustration. “I left comments asking Misamo to speak in Korean but they kept speaking in Japanese,” said one viewer. However, others came to Misamo’s defense, saying that “it’s only natural they would speak in Japanese among themselves. They are Japanese after all.” The broadcasts have been viewed over 500,000 times in total as of Tuesday. http://www.vlive.tv/video/75309 http://www.vlive.tv/video/75312 http://www.vlive.tv/video/75313 http://www.vlive.tv/video/75315 http://www.vlive.tv/video/75317 CR: KPOPHERALD

  23. [V Report Plus] Jeongyeon and Sana films ‘Mischief and Ghost’ (Naver V app) Jeongyeon and Sana of girl group Twice recreated the romantic pottery-making scene from 1990 film “Ghost” in a rather mischievous way in the latest episode of Twice TV released via Naver’s V app Saturday. The episode showed some behind-the-scenes footage from the filming of the music video for the group’s latest track “What is Love?” which parodies popular scenes from romance films. However, the two had a hard time recreating the romantic scene from 1990 film as they could not stand the awkwardness and ended up laughing. Sana made it even more awkward by doing things such as suddenly putting her face closer to Jeongyeon’s as if she was going to kiss her. After going through twists and turns, they finally finished the scene. After the filming, Sana called the scene they recreated as “Mischief and Ghost,” referring to the Korean title of the film which is translated as “Love and Ghost.” http://www.vlive.tv/video/67799 CR: KPOPHERALD
  24. [V Report Plus] Momo learns to play Korean ‘se se se’ (Naver V app) Girl group Twice enjoyed their time back in school in the latest episode of Twice TV released via Naver’s V app Wednesday. The episode showed some behind-the-scenes footage from the filming of the music video for the group’s latest track “What is Love?” which parodies popular scenes from romance films. In the video, the Twice bandmates filmed a scene which parodied a scene from the 2001 film “The Princess Diaries” where the heroine Mia, played by Anne Hathaway, returned to school after getting a drastic makeover to become the princess of Genovia. During the break, Jihyo taught her Japanese bandmate Momo how play the “se se se” clapping game. Momo was confused by the quick hand movements at first, but got the moves soon after. Watching them play the game, Sana said, “It would have been fun if they went to same school. Don’t you think so?” Another Japanese bandmate Mina is a professional when it comes to the clapping game and played a more complicated version than Jihyo. http://www.vlive.tv/video/67315 CR: KPOPHERALD
