After reaching tens of thousands of fans on their first-ever North American tour earlier this year, TWICE will get even closer with their followers in a brand new way.
Billboard can exclusively reveal that JYP Entertainment and YouTube have partnered to produce a YouTube Originals docu-series starring TWICE, based around the North American leg of their 2019 TWICELIGHTS world tour. Even with this marking the group’s first time playing their own concerts in the West, the tour brought together a reported 41,000 fans across its Los Angeles, Mexico City, Newark and Chicago dates this summer.
Described as “unlike anything released by TWICE before,” the series promises exclusives, in-depth interviews and analyses, as well as an “intimate and personal portrayal of all of TWICE’s members.” Viewers will also get a look into the group’s four-year journey and how they’ve risen to become a new leader in K-pop with No. 1s across Billboard‘s World Albums and World Digital Song Sales charts.
While YouTube Originals previously worked with K-pop boy bands, this new venture with TWICE will be the first time the award-winning series has teamed with a K-pop girl group.
TWICE’s YouTube Originals series is currently in production and fans can look forward to its release in the first half of 2020.
