K-pop group Twice will appear on Japanese broadcaster NHK’s annual “Year-end Song Festival,” also known as “Kohaku Uta Gassen.”

Japanese media outlets including Nikkan Sports reported Wednesday that the K-pop group had decided to appear on “Kohaku” and that NHK would make an official announcement Thursday.

It will mark the first appearance of a K-pop group on the Japanese year-end show in six years. In 2011, Kara, Girls’ Generation and TVXQ were featured on the show.

The nine-piece group, which includes Japanese and Taiwanese members, made its Japanese debut in June with “#TWICE,” a compilation album that contains past hits such as “Cheer Up” and “TT” in both Japanese and Korean.

“#Twice” was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of Japan for selling more than 250,000 copies. The group’s next release in Japan, “One More Time,” was also certified platinum by the association.
