TWICE's 'TWICELAND' Movie To Be Released At CGV Theaters In South Korea
It looks like K-pop documentary film is the trend right now. After BTS's broke movie records for its Burn The Stage: The Movie, it is now TWICE's turn.
The Korean female group has announced that they will release their film, TWICELAND, in CGV cinemas in South Korea on December 7. According to CGV, at least 50 of its theaters across the country will screen TWICE's film. CGV is the largest multiplex cinema chain in SoKor. It also has branches in the United States and in other Asian countries such as China, Indonesia, Myanmar, Turkey, and Vietnam.
TWICELAND follows the nine-member K-pop act on their TWICELAND ZONE 2: Fantasy Park tour. The film features the group's performances, behind-the-scenes footage, and interviews. It will also have some never-before-seen clips from TWICE's tours in Seoul, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, and Indonesia.
TWICELAND is a joint content project of JYP Entertainment and CGV ScreenX. The cinema chain promises fans the best movie experience ever. With its ScreenX technology, viewers will be able to watch the movie with two additional side screens in addition to the main screen. This will give them the feel as if they are in the concert arena.

The group's announcement about their latest project came a week after Japan's national broadcaster NHK confirmed that TWICE will be participating in 2018 Kōhaku Uta Gassen of the network. This is TWICE's second consecutive year in the annual event.
Additionally, the release of TWICELAND in cinemas also came after YG Entertainment announced the group's Japan dome tour. According to label, TWICE's Japan dome tour will kick off in Osaka on March 21, 2019. The girls will also perform for their fans in Tokyo on March 29-30 and in Nagoya on April 6.
The tri-cities tour makes TWICE the first K-pop female group to perform in multiple Japanese domes. Kara performed at Tokyo Dome in January 2013 and become the first Korean girl group to have a concert at a Japanese dome.
TWICE has been promoting actively in Japan for the past few years. So far, the group has released one Japanese studio album, a compilation album, and several singles.
Meanwhile, TWICE members are currently busy promoting their sixth EP, titled Yes or Yes, which was released on November 5. The music video of the title track "Yes or Yes" has garnered more than 28 million views on its first 24 hours on YouTube, making it the fastest K-pop girl group MV to hit 20 million views. The group was able to achieve the feat in just 10 hours and 27 minutes.
