TWICE Sana’s Pre-debut Story and Appear on Survival Show SIXTEEN

TWICE is a girl group that is familiar to K-Pop fans. This girl group under JYP Entertainment is the most phenomenal new generation girl group and has received a lot of attention. Then, how were TWICE and Sana’s career journey before becoming the phenomenal one they are today? Here is the review.

JYP Entertainment already has plans to debut a new girl group in 2014. Several JYP Entertainment trainees are rumored to be filling positions in a group called 6MIX. Judging from the name, this group numbered 6 members. However, until the end of 2014, the group had never debuted.

Finally, in February 2015, Park Jin-young, the founder of JYP Entertainment announced that the composition of the new girlband he would form was determined through a girl group survival reality program called ‘SIXTEEN’ broadcast by Mnet and filled with 16 JYP Entertainment trainees.

At the end of the ‘SIXTEEN’ episode, 7 members were chosen to fill the position of JYP Entertainment’s new girband, namely Nayeon, Jeongyeon, Jihyo, Sana, Mina, Dahyun and Chaeyoung. However, surprisingly, JYP added 2 new members, namely Tzuyu and Momo (previously eliminated). Tzuyu was chosen because he got the highest votes from the audience while Momo was chosen because of his dance and vocal skills. The selection of these 2 members was controversial.

Meanwhile, Sana also has her pre debut story. While still in middle school, Sana, who was shopping with a friend, was recruited by JYP Entertainment. Sana, who did not understand Korean at that time, was helped by her friend to translate what the JYP Entertainment staff said. Sana started being a trainee in 2012, she was also rumored to be a member of the Japanese girl group made by JYP Entertainment before finally joining the ‘SIXTEEN’ program.

Then, while being a trainee under JYP Entertainment, Sana was also seen appearing several times in the music videos of several singers under the same agency as her. Besides Sana, Mina and Momo also appeared as cameos who made the appearance through Lee Junho’s Feel (Japanese Vers.) music video. There, Mina and Momo have a longer screen time because the three of them act as friends of the girl Junho likes, which is played by actress Min Hyo-rin.
