It has been revealed that JYP Entertainment is gearing up to debut its new girl group TWICE during the second half of 2015!
After the nine members of the upcoming group were finalized through a survival program, they are planning to officially make their debut into the music industry before the end of the year.
On July 8, a representative of JYP Entertainment shared, “At the end of the five-month survival program [Mnet] ‘SIXTEEN,’ girl group TWICE has been born. As much as they are beginning [their career] with love and interest, they will be preparing hard to debut in order to live up to everyone’s expectations.”
The agency rep continued, “They are in the middle of preparations, aiming to debut in the second half of this year. However, the exact debut date is undecided. They will greet everyone with a good song.”
Furthermore, JYP Entertainment revealed, “TWICE is the third girl group to be showcased by JYP, following the Wonder Girls and miss A. We will make sure that they overcome the pressure and become an amazing girl group that continues the line of the Wonder Girls and miss A.”
Meanwhile, the July 7 broadcast of “SIXTEEN” unveiled the final lineup of members. While TWICE was initially planned as a seven-member group, a total of nine were ultimately chosen: Nayeon, Jungyeon, Jihyo, Dahyun, Chaeyoung, Tzuyu, Mina, Sana, and Momo. Unfortunately, Natty, Somi, and Minyoung were unable to make the final cut.
