When Did TWS Debut?

TWS officially debuted on January 22, 2024 with the release of the mini-album Sparkling Blue.

“Sparkling Blue is an album that clearly identifies who our six members are today and our voices as they are now,” Youngjae told Nylon Manilla in January 2024. “It captures our energy and feelings as a newly starting artist, making it the perfect introduction.”

The group also spoke about the pressures that can come with being under the companies that created such legendary groups such as BTS and SEVENTEEN.

“The ‘pressure’ makes us want to do really well,” Shinyu told the outlet. “It serves as motivation for us to do better. Embracing what one might label as pressure and taking it as a driving force, we aim to live up to the nickname ‘SEVENTEEN’s younger brothers’ or ‘PLEDIS and HYBE’s super rookies.'”

On top of that, Dohoon revealed the SEVENTEEN themselves have helped TWS a lot throughout their training and debut process.

“SEVENTEEN (sunbaenims) often visited us during our practices with words of encouragement and advice! They treated us to delicious food and even gifted each of us a pair of sneakers,” the K-pop star shared. “Rather than specific advice or interaction, I think the relationship we have with them and just their presence, their story on its own will continue to help us along the way.”
