October 20th marks the 1-year anniversary since the official debut of popular JYP Entertainment rookie girl group TWICE.
Although the members were revealed much earlier on the last episode of Mnet survival show SIXTEEN, the group made their official debut with their album The Story Begins, accompanied by the music video for title track “Like OOH-AHH” on October 20th, 2015.
Since their debut, the girls have reached unprecedented levels of success, taking home the Best New Female Artist of the Year award at top ceremonies including the 2015 MAMA and the 30th Golden Disk Awards. Building on the success of their first album, TWICE released their second mini-album Page Two on April 25th, featuring title track “Cheer Up.”
“Cheer Up” has become nothing short of a cultural sensation, achieving success in all aspects, including music show wins, chart-topping, and cultural relevance. In fact, the song is even considered a front-runner for this year’s “Song of the Year” for all the major award shows.
While TWICE is currently releasing teasers for their third mini-album TWICEcoaster: Lane 1, their past songs have continued to rise in popularity. In fact, the music video for “Like OOH-AHH” is already the most-watched debut music video of any Korean artist ever, and “Cheer Up” is on track to be the fastest K-Pop group music video to hit 100 million views on YouTube.
While they’re busy preparing for their comeback, the girls didn’t forget their special date, posting a special photo on Instagram to celebrate their achievement. Wearing the rings that they made during their trip to Jeju Island not long ago, the girls made a circle with their hands to represent their unity as a whole.
