Twice is coming to theaters, JYP Entertainment announced Thursday.

“TWICELAND,” a movie documenting the nine-piece act’s 2018 world tour “TWICELAND ZONE 2: Fantasy Park,” will be screened at South Korea’s cinema chain CGV. The group’s second concert tour kicked off with three days of concerts in Seoul from May 18 to 20, which proved a smashing success, having sold out all 18,000 seats.

Twice is having its busiest year yet. It has already released four singles and two extended plays, with another full-length Japanese album “BDZ” slated for release on Sept. 12.

To commemorate its first Japanese album, Twice will hold an arena tour around Japan, starting on Sept. 29 at Makuhari Messe in Chiba city.

Hwang Min-hyun of Wanna One celebrated his 23rd birthday via a V Live broadcast Thursday.

“This is my first time holding a V Live broadcast by myself,” he said in an introduction.

“So many fans are wishing me happy birthday,” he said. “I posted a thank you note but I wanted to thank you in a more personable way, hence this broadcast.”

He continued to thank fans, seemingly genuinely moved. “I wonder if I could be loved by so many people like this in my next life,” he said.

“I’m having the happiest birthday,” Hwang told fans, reiterating a few times more that he is “so happy.”

To fans asking how he spent his birthday, he replied that he “had lots of good food” and that fellow Wanna One star Sungwoon treated him to a nice meal.

“Wannable (Wanna One’s fandom), thank you very much,” he thanked his fans again before wrapping up.

Chungha, one of K-pop’s most prominent female solo acts at the moment, named a fellow musician she would like to collaborate with in an interview revealed Thursday.

The 22-year-old named Korean American singer-rapper Paul Kim based in Seoul.

“We made a promise to each other since a long time ago that we would collaborate one day,” she said.

The two share a similar background as former contestants on reality audition shows. Chungha was in the first season of Mnet’s “Produce 101” and Paul Kim was in Season 6 of “American Idol,” where he finished as one of the top 24 semifinalists.

The former “Produce 101” star has enjoyed a series of hits since her 2017 solo debut with “Hands on Me” fronted by “Why Don’t You Know,” followed by January’s “Offset” and her most recent extended play “Blooming Blue.” Its lead track “Love U” topped South Korea’s major music charts including Genie, Bugs, Mnet and Soribada.

Naver’s real-time broadcasting app V allows fans to interact with their favorite K-pop stars through live broadcasts. The app is available for Android and iOS. For more information, visit http://www.vlive.tv.
