Love Twice? Want to know more about who are the members of TWICE? Here is all the info about their birthdays, zodiac signs, ages and so much more.

When it comes to Kpop girl groups, TWICE is one of my favourites (apart from Blackpink, of course!).

I simply adore their cutesy personas and “bubblegum” pop music sound. I’ve been following their journey since they were selected on the reality show Sixteen and through their extended play “The Story Begins” coming out in 2015.

Did you know that Momo is originally Japanese! She was born in the Kyōtanabe district in Kyoto. JYP Entertainment scouts found her when she uploaded a video of her dancing with her sister online.

When she participated in the reality show SIXTEEN, Momo was originally eliminated. But J.Y Park the founder of JYP Entertainment decided to add her as a final TWICE member nevertheless because of her dancing skills.

And this is evident because she’s the group’s main dancer and caused several of the choreography to turn into memes and viral hits! 

She’s currently dating Heechul from Super Junior.

Like her bandmate Momo, Sana too is originally from Japan as she was born in the city of Tennōji-ku in Osaka, Japan.

Sana is arguably the cutest member in the TWICE group. In fact, the “ahegyo” style of her dance step in the song “Cheer Up” made her viral on the internet. 

But that’s not all as Sana also has a brilliant voice and is among the vocalists of the group.

I recently learned that the fans of the group, the ONCE’s (yes, that is their K-pop fandom name) call Dahyun “Tofu” thanks to her creamy white skin. Cute right? 

She was spotted by JYP talent scouts when she performed in her middle school’s talent festival. 

But before even making her K-pop debut, Dahyun was already well-known in Korea thanks to a dance video of hers that went viral. 

Fans of hers know Dahyun as the funny one of the group, and she was also the most popular contestant when the group were participating in SIXTEEN.

Do you know Mina’s real nationality? No I’m not talking about the fact that she’s Japanese! Mina was born in the USA. Yes, and her English name is Sharon. 

But Mina’s parents moved to Japan when she was a kid and she was spotted by JYP talent scouts when out shopping with her mom.

Mina is also a trained ballet dancer. And perhaps this is what made her the training period in JYP the shortest. 

She’s also woman of varied interests as Mina loves gaming as well. 

Nayeon

  • Nationality – Korean
  • Position In The Group – Lead Vocalist, Lead Dancer, Face of the Group, Center
  • Birthday – September 22, 1995

Nayeon is the oldest member of TWICE and also the Maknae or the Face of the Group. She had originally auditioned for JYP as a child, but her mother had shut it down.

But 10 years later, she auditioned in secret again and finally got in! Originally, Nayeon was supposed to debut with another JYP group called 6Mix, but the group disbanded.

She also appears in several MVs (music videos) of fellow Kpop groups like GOT7’s Girls Girls Girls and Please Don’t Go by San E.

Chaeyoung is one of the native Korean members of TWICE and she is also their lead rapper. 

She’s actually a fantastic poet and songwriter, which is a testament to her rapping skills. Another hidden talent of Chaeyoung’s is that she’s a great artist as well.

Did you know that her family nicknamed her “strawberry princess” as she loved the fruit? That’s just so adorable!

Tzuyu 

  • Real Name – Chou Tzuyu
  • Nationality – Taiwanese 
  • Position In The Group – Lead Dancer, Main Rapper, Sub Vocalist, Visual, Maknae
  • Birthday –  June 14, 1999

Although she’s among the tallest TWICE members, Tzuyu, standing proud at 5 feet 8 inches is actually the youngest!

Nevertheless, she’s the leader of the group (the real Maknae so to speak). 

She’s known for her quick humour and her fiery personality and often loves roasting her bandmates. 

Tzuyu is originally from Taiwan and her mom owns a coffee shop there. 

Jeongyeon

  • Position In The Group – Lead Vocalist
  • Birthday – November 1, 1996

Jeongyeon was almost not in TWICE. Yes, she got accepted by both SM Entertainment and JYP Entertainment on the same day. But thankfully for us ONCEs, she decided to go with JYP.

Being a performing artist runs in Jeongyeon’s family as her older sister is an actress.

Joengyeon also auditioned for JYP at a very young age but didn’t get through their auditions. She auditioned again at the 6th Open Audition in March 2010 and got in!

See kids, that’s why you never give up on your dreams! 

Jihyo

  • Real Name – Park Ji Soo (later Park Ji Hyo)
  • Nationality – Korean
  • Position In The Group – Leader, Main Vocalist
  • Birthday – February 1, 1997
  • Zodiac Sign – Aquarius

Jihyo was originally called Park Jisoo but changed her name to Jihyo shortly before joining JYP. This was probably to avoid confusion between herself and Jisoo from Blackpink.

She started her training with JYP pretty young and trained for at least 10 years before her debut. 

Jihyo was also publicly in a relationship with Kang Daniel, but they broke it off in late 2020 due to their busy schedules.
