South Korea’s top K-pop labels JYP Entertainment and SM Entertainment have been livened up by female artists’ vigorous activities.

JYP Entertainment said Monday that its K-pop super girl group Twice will hold two concerts at Tokyo Dome in Japan on April 23-24 as part of its world tour titled “Ⅲ.”

The nine-member act will be returning to Japan since it traveled seven cities in the country in 2019 to hold “Twice World Tour 2019 ‘Twicelights’ in Japan.”

The new world tour began in Seoul last Friday and Saturday, its first offline concert since the pandemic. They will fly to Los Angeles on Feb. 16 to continue the world tour.

Twice held a full concert at Tokyo Dome in March 2019, becoming a fastest foreign artist to hold a concert at Tokyo Dome after its debut in June 2017.
