- TEAM TWICE 3.0 <3
Twice wraps up with five crowns
Topping five of Korea’s major music charts, Twice is wrapping up its promotional activities for its recent EP “Summer Nights” on top.
The nine-piece act won first on SBS’s “Inkigayo” on Sunday, along with previous top rankings on four other music charts, including MBC’s “Show! Music Core” and KBS’ “Music bank."
Jeongyeon spoke directly to the group’s supporters, saying, “Thank you to Once for coming to the show for two weeks even during the hot weather.”
Twice’s latest EP, “Summer Night,” which includes nine tracks, was released on July 9, topping music charts immediately for the group that debuted just some three years ago.

[V Report] Twice’s best dancer Momo holds ‘Dance the Night Away’ tutorial
(Naver's V Live)
Twice’s Momo showed fans how it’s done.
The 21-year-old held a virtual dance class on Naver’s V live Saturday at midnight.
She kicked off the broadcast in the dance practice hall.
“Should I use a filter? Which is better?” she posed to the viewers.
“I’m eating chips so that I’ll have some energy to dance,” she announced, before issue a warning: “If you eat too much, you might feel like
throwing up while dancing.”
However, that didn’t stop her from munching on chips and gummy candy for a while, even as she said, “If you’re trying to lose weight, this dance could help.”
(Naver's V Live)
She began with light stretching before officially delving into dance instructions, and then she took fans through the “Dance the Night Away” choreography step by step.
“I’m exhausted,” she said at the end of the hour-long video.
Momo has the reputation as the group’s best dancer, which is probably why she stepped up to give the dance tutorial.

(June 14th) The Day of Gutsy Confrontation
Strengths: Successful, Gutsy, Ambitious
Weaknesses: Overstressed, Impatient, Domineering
The determined and intense people born on June 14 are very sharp in their observations and assessment of what goes on around them. They are usually strongly opinionated, loyal, and demonstrate great courage when fighting the good fight, the honorable battle. They are forceful and convincing when presenting their ideas and opinions, and because they understand human nature all too well, capable of mercilessly exposing hypocrisy and pretense.
The women born on this day are particularly forceful, both mentally and physically. The men may be no less strong, but tend to have an egotistical and dictatorial streak which can create conflict for them with others. Less evolved June 14 men are capable of clever duplicity. Both male and female June 14 people have strong critical leanings, and can be merciless when in a satirical or lampooning mood.
June 14 people are really tough, difficult to get around or smooth-talk. Once they see the goal ahead of them, they go for it. Generally their loyalty extends first to their family, second to friends, and last to society. If attached to a leader or cause they can become a most articulate spokesperson. They make very bad enemies indeed, and one would be foolish to antagonise them for they know very well how to take revenge.
Difficulties and problems abound for June 14 people, but they display remarkable expertise in managing them. Like experienced ballplayers, they know how to handle the intricacies of the game while keeping cool. Those born on this day must beware of dominating others in relationships; June 14 people often recognise problems way in advance and act on them, instead of giving their partners a chance to cope with things, even to fail (but learn from the experience). In this respect they are at best overprotective, at worst, compulsive.
June 14 people value freedom of movement, both mental and physical freedom. To be imprisoned, detained or even delayed is intolerable to them. For some June 14 people, the fear of being held against their will can border on being a phobia.
Those born on this day are intensely competitive and deeply enjoy winning. Indeed, they must avoid making every area of their life a power struggle. It is best that they restrict their aggression and competitive urges to areas outside of personal relationships. They must also beware of arrogance and overconfidence (particularly June 14 males) and of pushing their luck too far.
Numbers and Planets:
Those born on the 14th day of the month are ruled by the number 5 (1+4=5), and by the planet Mercury. The number 5, as well as the planet Mercury and the sign of Gemini all stand for change, implying a disdain for plodding behaviour and a propensity for impulsive action. June 14 people must learn to master impulsive urges, yet at the same time remain open to gradual (rather than sudden) change when it furthers their cause and that of those dependent on them. Fortunately, the number 5 bestows a resilient character which recovers quickly from the hard knocks of life.
The 14th card of the Major Arcana is Temperance. The figure shown is a guardian angel who protects us and keeps us on an even keel. This is a wonderful message for June 14 people, and they should heed it. Those born on June 14 should especially avoid all forms of egotistical excess, and cultivate their innate ability to heal themselves. Positively seen, Temperance modifies passions in order to allow for new truths to be learned and incorporated into one's life. However, it may also indicate negative traits of moodiness, trendiness and malleability.
Referring again to the Tarot card of June 14, Temperance, cultivating moderation in life is crucial to the health of those born on this day. Although seemingly possessed of boundless energy, they must be careful of overreaching physically or mentally. A balanced diet and regular sleep maintain equilibrium. When June 14 people lose their way and become prey to excesses and indulgences, their positive attributes fade and their success dwindles. If only for this reason, which speaks to their competitive nature and drive for success, they should learn to pace themselves and to be patient. Family, mates and friends are enormously important for bringing light into their lives.
Learn moderation and get your balancing act together. Remember to return the attentions of those who care for you. Watch your ego, lest it get out of control. Allow your mate to experience life too; back off occasionally.

(April 23rd) The Day of Adopted Security
Strengths: Social, Secure, Careful
Weaknesses: Inflexible, Anxious, Repressed
Those born on April 23 seek the best haven for their considerable talents and will not rest until they have established themselves under the auspices of a recognised or powerful organisation. This does not necessarily mean that they will be employed directly by that organisation, though it is often the case, but that the organisation will serve as a kind of "patron" for them, perhaps recommending them to others and opening doors. April 23 people can often be found marrying into a family which will take them under its wing. Those born on this day care little for an isolated life; they need to exert their power within a larger social sphere. Financial success and security are paramount importance to them.
Those in the arts (writers, journalists, painters) or in business (manufactures or shopkeepers) rely on building up a following which will, year in and year out, continue to buy their books or their products. April 23 people who perform a service (doctors, lawyers, accountants) will carefully build a clientele, knowing that without it they are lost. April 23 people manage to express themselves as individuals within the family or professional sphere, but they will never want to be so outspoken as to lose the support of the group with which they are involved. In these respects they are very dependent on the good will and trust of others.
A danger exists to this much-needed security from the impulsive side of their nature which craves excitement. Those born on this day many at times act rashly, jeopardising their position. If April 23 people are able to direct a longing for change and stimulation into their work, while keeping their personal lives in balance, they will succeed; if not, they may disrupt both their business and family life with all sorts of impulsive schemes.
April 23 people are more than happy to continue in a chosen activity for a lifetime. If they repress their individuality too much, however, they run the risk of losing the interest of others. The trick for them is to regularly innovate, to bring to the fore well-though-out new projects which will move them forward. Should they settle for a contented stick-in-the-mud existence they will be working at cross purposes with their own highly creative nature.
An April 23 person often has a sharp, keen eye for the foibles of others, and a very deep understanding of human character and motives. Care must be taken to use this highly insightful and incisive bent constructively, especially if teaching or parenting. April 23 people must wield their considerable influence over others wisely and from time to time exercise control over their nimble minds and sharp tongues.
Numbers and Planets:
Those born on the 23rd of the month are ruled by the number 5 (2+3=5), and by the planet Mercury. Since Mercury represents quickness of thought and change, those born on this day must find a way to balance such energy with a strong need for security; they may have to reign in those impulses which have them driving in the fast lane, impulses which are emphasized by the influences of Mars and Venus (rulers of Aries and Taurus, respectively). Fortunately, the hard knocks that those ruled by the number 5 receive in life typically will have little lasting effect.
The 5th card of the Major Arcana is The Hierophant, an interpreter of sacred mysteries who is symbolic of human understanding and of faith. His knowledge is esoteric and he has authority over things unseen. Favourable traits conferred by this card are self-assuredness, absence of doubt and proper interpretation; unfavourable traits are moralising, bombast and dogmatism.
April 23 people must be careful to prepare for their old age. Too often they sink into fixed, repetitive habits as they get older which rob them of a youthful capacity for change, and can literally cripple them. Therefore continued mild to moderate exercise is advisable. Spending time with their grandchildren, and/or doing volunteer work with children will keep them lively and in touch with youthful energies. Those born on this day are vulnerable to arthritis of all sorts, particularly of the neck. They are also prone to hearing loss and dizziness -- in extreme case, Meniere's syndrome. Particularly with arthritis, a regular program of moderate physical exercise can stave off deterioration and stiffening of joints, and maintain a greater degree of flexibility into old age. Their tastes in food are quite sophisticated and wide-ranging, but their love of bread, butter and pastries can be fatal. This desire for earth foods should be guided in the direction of cereals, rice, bulgar and polenta.
Have more confidence in your ability to operate on your own. Beware of becoming fixed; try to be more flexible. Let your emotions out and follow your hunches. Balance your personal life. Don't be afraid to speak your mind, but be tactful and kind.
