The contestants completed a group of challenges, which tested their singing, rapping and dancing skills. The charisma each contestant exudes was also a consideration in the selection process. This is how the nine-membered group of Twice came into existence.

Why Are They Called Twice?

Park Jinyoung, the founder of JYP Entertainment explained that “Twice” means making a double impact. Through their music, the group aimed at making an impression “once through the ears and once through the eyes”. As the group debuted and started releasing one hit after the other, they proved the statement correct.

Twice’s songs feature vibrant vocals combined with colorful and eye-catching music videos. They have developed a specific name for their most dedicated fans as “Once.” The group explained the meaning behind this and said that if you love us once, we will return it twice.
