With this, TWICE will also be first K-pop girl group in history to perform in a North American stadium, and are also the second K-pop act to do so overall, following BTS, per Soompi.
Last year, TWICE released ‘Formula Of Love: T+O=<3’ alongside the music video for its lead single ‘Scientist’. The record also features the group’s first-ever official English-language single ‘The Feels’, which became the group’s first-ever song to enter the Billboard Hot 100, charting at Number 83 for the week of October 16.
In other news, JYP Entertainment revealed earlier this month that it plans to launch a “full-scale” expansion into the US market, through the establishment of a North American-based subsidiary named JYP USA, aimed at “discover[ing] and foster[ing] local US artists”.
In the past half year alone, JYP Entertainment has expanded its roster to include the boyband Xdinary Heroes, as well as new girl group NMIXX. The former made their debut last December with the digital single ‘Happy Death Day’.
Meanwhile, NMIXX released their first ever single-album ‘Ad Mare’ and its title track ‘O.O’ last month, following its initial announcement last July.
