Having debuted in October of 2015, Twice had sold some 627,000 records as of the end of last year, becoming the best-selling all-female K-pop band of 2016.

Coming off the success of debut album "The Story Begins," Twice's popularity was taken to another level with 2016 smash hit "Cheer Up." The single grabbed the grand prize for best song at last month's Golden Disc Awards while winning song of the year at the Melon Music Awards and MAMA 2016.

Prior to the new album's release, the group is set to hold concerts from Feb.17 to 19 at the SK Olympic Handball Stadium in Songpa-gu, southern Seoul.
