Youngest TWICE Member

9 of the Youngest Members in TWICE

TWICE is the Korean pop group sensation formed by JYP Entertainment. They happen to be one of the few groups that have managed to break out of just the Korean music scene and extend their influence on a global scale, winning over the hearts and ears of pop fans everywhere. They’re the first female Korean group to top Billboard’s World Albums and World Digital Song Sales charts with their debut studio album, Twicetagram, as the vehicle catapulting them to superstardom. 

TWICE includes nine members brought together by the television program, Sixteen, which debuted in 2015. For many pop ensembles in Korea, it’s typically the norm for fame to be corporate-manufactured through shows like this or talent camps where young Korean boys and girls show potential in the world of entertainment.  

TWICE is still going strong today and have proven that they have staying power in the music industry. That’s why we’ll be covering all nine members of this dynamic female pop ensemble and finding out who’s the baby of the group!
