This week in TWICE from July 24, 2019 – August 9, 2019. Highlights: MGMA, new Twaii Merch, and Kakao Friends x TWICE collaboration.
M2 x Genie Music Awards - MGMA
Breakthrough is by far my favorite Japanese release from TWICE. It’s a stark contrast to their previous Japanese releases. For their MGMA performance, the girls enter seated on a lift and straight into the chorus of Breakthrough. Then the members launched into the dance break version of Fancy. Finally, they ended with Dance The Night Away. I’m still sad that there isn’t a full performance of Breakthrough yet. I’m hoping that we will be treated with a performance during TWICELIGHTS in Japan in the fall.
There were four Daesangs given out during the MGMA. TWICE won the Daesang (grand award) for Best Selling Artist and the award for Best Female Group. The members mentioned Mina in their acceptance speech and thanked ONCE as well. The best part was Sana yelling into the mic, “Mina, we won an award!”
TWICE Naver Blog - TWICELIGHTS in Seoul #1
TWICE Naver blog posted an article about TWICELIGHTS in Seoul. There are some great hi-res shots of the members performing and behind the scene shots. Mina appears in these photos as well because they were shot at the beginning of the tour. Check them out below!
TWICE Winning Moments
TWICE has come so far from their first music show win. KBS made a compilation of winning moments on Music Bank. Seeing the members cry, is emotional because I know the amount of blood, sweat, and tears the girls put in to achieve their dreams. KBS must be missing Mina too because they made a series featuring Mina and why she is awesome.
Why Mina is Awesome
TWICE Confirmed Preparing for a Comback
On August 8, JYP Entertainment confirmed that TWICE is making a comeback. The music video shooting will begin August 9th. The exact time of the comeback has not been decided, but preparations are underway. Mina’s participation is undecided.
MBC Idol Star Athletics Championships
Dahyun will be a MC for the upcoming Idol Star Athletics Championship (ISAC). Only Dahyun, Chaeyoung, and Tzuyu will be participating this time, competing in the Archery event.
