JYP Entertainment slams ‘2-week promotional tour’ after confirming TWICE spring comebackBy / 2017.04.18
It's confirmed! TWICE will be making a comeback this Spring.
A source from JYP Entertainment revealed that, "TWICE is planning on making a comeback this May. The specific comeback date hasn't been determined yet," as Soompi reported. However, it is said that the group could only do a 2-week promotional tour because of their Japanese debut.
The label then quickly addressed the report, saying, "It's true that TWICE plan on a comeback for May, but no specific date has been confirmed... it is false that the promotions will only last 2 weeks. They plan on promoting so that fans will be able to enjoy TWICE's album more [than that]," Allkpop quoted.
Reports claim that the group is currently planning on making their official debut in Japan in June instead of the original schedule, which is July 2. The group have also recently wrapped up filming the MV of their Japanese debut album "#TWICE," which is slated for release on June 28.
The album will have a total of ten songs which will include both Korean and Japanese-language versions of their single "Like Ooh-Ahh," "Cheer Up," and "TT." Also, five Japanese programs have featured the group informing the viewers about their upcoming debut.
After debuting in 2015 through the reality show "Sixteen," TWICE has since dominated the K-Pop scene. Their official MV for their single "TT" has hit 100 million views on YouTube, making them the fastest K-Pop group to do so beating their own record which was previously set by "Cheer Up."
TWICE has proven their immense popularity after their popular "TT pose" was imitated by several Japanese celebrities on social networking sites and became popular among teenagers. The group had also launched their official Japanese website along with other social media channels in early February 2017.
The group is composed of nine members namely: Nayeon, Jeongyeon, Momo, Sana, Jihyo, Mina, Dahyun, Chaeyoung, and Tzuyu.
