Girl band TWICE marked the 500th day since its debut on 3 March. The girls shared a heartfelt message to fans on Facebook for the love and support they received.
The note read: "Some may have been with us for all 500 days, some may not have been able to. However, we have all welcomed the 500th day together. Thank you for staying by TWICE's side. We know that we won't be able to fully portray our grateful feelings solely through a message, but at least today, we want to tell ONCEs how thankful we are. Thank you for becoming ONCE."
Started in 2015, TWICE made their debut with "Like OOH-AHH." Today, with an amazing fan base across the globe, TWICE is already compared to two legendary Kpop girl bands, 2NE1 and Girls Generation. They are also one of the few Kpop bands to top the Billiboard charts for more than 4 weeks.
The nine-member band comprises of Nayeon, Jeongyeon, Momo, Sana, Jihyo, Mina, Dahyun, Chaeyoung, and Tzuyu. Nayeon is the oldest and most experienced person in the group - starting her career in 2013 under JYP but she had to wait long for her debut. Jeongyeon is the talented singer cum actress, who also happens to be the younger sister of Gong Seung-Yeon. Momo Hira or Momo is the Japanese-born main dancer who started her quest at a very young age while Sana Minatozaki developed an interest towards Kpop very late.
Jihyo is the leader and the main vocalist - she has trained with the agency for almost 10 years before joining the group. US-born Mina Myoui is known as the ballerina of the group due to her elegant and gracious dance steps. Rockstar Kim DaHyun or Dahyun is the craziest member of the group while the shy-cum-aggressive Chaeyoung is a prankster and also the second youngest member of the band. And lastly, the most youngest member Tzuyu has mesmerized her fans with her crazy antics and mannerism.
