When Does MISAMO’s Album Come Out?

The subunit’s first Japanese mini-album Masterpiece will drop July 26, 2023. Their title track “Do Not Touch” was released on July 13, and their pre-release single “Marshmallow” dropped in June.

Who Are TWICE?

TWICE debuted under JYP Entertainment on October 20, 2015, with their song “Like OOH-AHH(OOH-AHH하게)” The girl group has nine members:  JihyoNayeonJeongyeon, Momo, Sana, Mina, DahyunChaeyoung, and Tzuyu.

The band was formed through a survival show called Sixteen, where the girls competed against other JYP Entertainment trainees in order to debut. Since debut, the girl has gone on to break milestone after milestone, becoming one of the most successful K-pop groups of all time.

In May 2022, the group’s fourth world tour created a huge breakthrough for TWICE. The nine-member act became the first K-pop girl group to hold a stadium concert in the U.S.

“When we heard that the stadium concert was scheduled in the U.S., some of us really worried whether we could do it or not,” Sana told Cosmopolitan in July 2022 for their cover issue.

The pandemic was ongoing, and TWICE had never played at a venue of this size in America. But both shows quickly sold out.

“In the beginning, we really hoped that one day, we would hold a concert of our own,” she recalled. “But now we are holding concerts in Korea, in the U.S., and all over the world, and that’s really unreal.”
