TWICE may not be attending this year’s Melon Music Awards (hereafter MMA).
According to sources in the music industry, TWICE will reportedly be attending MBC Music’s “MBC Music K-Pop Concert in Guam” on December 1. Since this event will take place in Guam, TWICE will reportedly be unable to attend 2018 MMA which will also take place on December 1 at Gocheok Sky Dome.
TWICE received a lot of love this year for their songs “What is Love?” and “Dance the Night Away.” The girl group will release “YES or YES” on November 5 and attempt to achieve their 10th consecutive hit. They’ve also confirmed appearances on JTBC’s “Ask Us Anything” and “Idol Room” for their upcoming comeback promotions.
