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.

      (News Focus) Oncoming summer to bring together K-pop girl bands for decisive face-off
      By Park Boram

      SEOUL, June 20 (Yonhap) -- Summer is a high time for K-pop girl bands to dominate the Korean pop scene often claimed by their well-established male counterparts.

      This summer, a wave of rising-star girl bands is aiming to claim the highly-competitive summer record market left open by the exit of a number of heavyweight girl groups last year.

      The years 2016 and 2017 saw a string of successful, so-called second-generation girl groups disband, including Kara, 4minute, 2NE1 as well as Sistar and Wonder Girls.

      Those groups debuted in the late 2000s and were the second generation of K-pop girl groups to garner international fame after their predecessors, the first generation girl bands, like S.E.S and Fin.K.L, pioneered the market in the late 1990s.

      Two-year-old hip-hop group BLACKPINK, from YG Entertainment, is among the most prominent female acts looking to dominate the scene this oncoming season.

      Returning from a one-year pause since their last single, the quartet dropped last week the EP "Square Up," led by title track "Ddu-Du Ddu-Du," a hip hop song with a trap beat.

      The song produced by YG's in-house producer Teddy Park comes with an addictive refrain, "Hit you with that ddu-du ddu-du," and a finger gun dance that matches the shooting sound. The track features a powerful hip hop dance performance, highlighting the swagger of the rare K-pop female hip hop act.

      One of the other tracks, "Forever Young," is a song fit to play against the summer backdrop. "I like 'Forever Young' the most. The more I listen, the more I like the song that brings back the mood of summer and a summer beach as well as a road trip," Thai member Lisa said in a press conference last week.

      The latest record release was a rare big step for the girl band, who are nicknamed "YG's jewelry box" for their scarce supply of records and TV appearances.

      Another successful girl band, TWICE, announced this week their return to the K-pop scene with summer-season dance music "Dance the Night Away," which is set for release on July 9.

      The single is the first music release by the leading girl group of JYP Entertainment since its last well-performing EP, "What is Love?," unveiled in early April and a key test of whether TWICE will repeat its dominance of the summer record market last year with EP "Signal."

      Also in the pipeline is female sextet Apink who is gearing up for the release of another EP featuring their trademark angelic image, "One & Six," on July 12.

      The first record release since the group's last EP "Pink Up" a year earlier is likely to be a major test of whether the seven-year-old girl band can stand the test of time, which hit other big-name bands, like 2NE1 and Sistar, as well as the dormant Girls' Generation.

      Group AOA came early to the summer K-pop scene, releasing its fifth EP, "Bingle Bangle," in late May as a six-member act following the departure of member Cho-a, with the title song of the new record, also "Bingle Bangle", registering as a moderate hit.

      The sultry girl group season is also likely to bring out a string of other high-profile female names to the scene, including the fore-running Mamamoo and Red Velvet as well as new faces, like GFriend and Fromis 9.

      That makes this summer a major barometer gauging the prospects for longevity of most of the current-generation girl groups following the key market shake-up last year, a local critic said.
      "Mamamoo and BLACKPINK, I think, have passed the test to some extent although BLACKPINK's chart-ranking songs -- 'Ddu-Du Ddu-Du' and 'Forever Young' -- did not show major progress from its last single 'As If It's Your Last,'" K-pop critic Lim Jin-mo said. "In contrast, Red Velvet's recent performances since 'Red Flavor' and 'Bad Boy' have been insipid."

      "This summer season is going to be a sort of arena where the fate of the new-generation girl groups will be put to a test. Those who survive will stay on, but those who don't will not," he said.
      Lim cited "tight cohesiveness" among group members and their "musical competence" to appeal to the public as the two decisive factors shaping the K-pop scene for female acts this summer.
