Among them, mysterious promotional contents such as 'UNIDENTIFIED MESSAGE' and 'PIECE OF EVIDENCE', which will be released on January 2nd 2023, arouse curiosity. In addition, 'CONCEPT FILM’, is highlighted with an underline to raise expectations.
SF9 contains the meaning of completing the scattered pieces (PIECE) like a puzzle through the 12th mini album 'THE PIECE OF9' and advancing to a complete SF9. The seven members of SF9 (Jaeyoon, Dawon, Rowoon, Zuho, Taeyang Yoo, Hwiyoung, and Chani) will capture fans' attention by presenting the mysterious agent concept in this album.
TWICE took the top spot on several charts in the US, the world's largest music market, and raised their reputation as a 'K-pop representative girl group'. Among them, the global music streaming platform Spotify stood out. In 2022, the number of music plays in the US reached a whopping 289.41 million as of December 15, reaffirming their hot popularity by becoming the K-pop girl group most streamed by local fans in the US this year. Recently, the total cumulative streaming of all music sources registered on Spotify worldwide exceeded 5.5 billion, setting a record and showing off the powerful sound source power.
Celebrating the 7th anniversary of their debut this year, TWICE opened a commemorative exhibition & pop-up store called 'Together 1&2', while conducting a live broadcast on October 20, the day of their debut, to express their gratitude to the fans. “Once is a gift itself to us. The nine members who expressed their affection, saying, “I hope the moments we spent together will be remembered forever,” plan to continue moving forward in 2023 by building a closer bond with fans.
MONSTA X will once again show the aspect of a 'growth idol' through their twelfth mini-album 'REASON', which will be released on January 9th.
