JYP Entertainment's biggest girl group to date has been consistent in expanding its reach from South Korea, Japan, Southeast Asia, and even in the Western Market. 

Now more than five years since their debut TWICE has released bops after bops, achieving countless milestones every comeback.

However, despite the Korean entertainment industry giving TWICE the title of being the current "Nation's Girl Group," of which once belonged to the legendary Girls' Generation, many K-Pop fans still argue whether the nonet from JYP Entertainment deserves to be one.

So, we have gathered some facts that just prove they deserve the title "Nation's Girl Group."

TWICE have the most songs to reach #1 on MelOn

In total, TWICE has nine songs that reached #1 on MelOn, beating the Kings of K-Pop, BIGBANG, which has seven on their belt.

The top five idol groups with the most songs to reach #1 on MelOn are:

#1 TWICE - 9

#2 BIGBANG - 7

#3 SISTAR - 5

#4 Girls' DayWINNER - 4

#5 Apink, BLACKPINK, BTS, iKONMAMAMOORed Velvet - 3

TWICE is the artist with the second-most weeks at No. 1 on Gaon

Only next to IU, which charted No.1 on Gaon for 56 weeks, TWICE is the idol group with the most No. 1 weeks on the Gaon Chart. The nonet from JYP charted No.1 for 22 weeks on Gaon in the five years of their career, beating BIGBANG, SISTAR, and BTS.

TWICE is the Idol Group with the most days at No.1 on MelOn

TWICE is the only group from the 3rd Generation to enter the Top 5 girl groups with the most downloads on the Gaon list

Together with the ranks of 2NE1, T-ARA, SISTAR, and WONDER GIRLS, TWICE is the only third-generation group to enter the list of the girl groups with the most downloads on the Gaon chart.

Aside from the listed achievements above, TWICE has broken a lot of records and even became the best-selling K-Pop girl group of all-time.
