Every year, Variety takes a look at the entertainment industry in order to compile its Youth Impact Report. For those who are unaware, this is a list of young actors, digital content creators, musicians, and other artists who have made an impact on showbiz over the past year - and it appears that TWICE has managed to make the 2016 report!
Despite only debuting last year, TWICE has made a huge impact on the K-pop industry, something that Variety definitely noted in their description of the girls:
"Launched and managed by South Korea’s entertainment major JYP Entertainment, the K-pop girl band debuted in October 2015. Their second mini-album, “Page Two,” released in April, sold over 145,000 copies and hit No. 1 in all online daily and weekly charts in the country. With five Korean members (Na-yeon, Jeong-yeon, Ji-hyo, Da-hyun and Chae-young), three Japanese (Momo, Sana and Mina), and a Chinese performer (Tzuyu), the multinational band has swept the board at major Asian music awards in the past year."
Congratulations to TWICE for this awesome achievement!
