Korean girl group TWICE members have renewed their contracts with entertainment company JYP Entertainment ahead of the group’s initial contract expiration later this year.

“TWICE and JYP agreed based on trust to renew the contracts with confidence in an even better future,” the representative said in a statement to several media outlets.

The contract renewal was followed by JYP launching a full-scale expansion into the United States with its JYP USA arm as well as extending their partnership with US-based Republic Records TWICE distribution, including other JYP groups like ITZY and Stray Kids.

The group also announced earlier today they will be making a comeback with their 11th mini album ‘BETWEEN 1&2’ which is set to release on August 26.

The group is popular for their hit Korean singles: “TT,” “Fancy,” “Signal,” “Heartshaker,” “Cheer Up,” and “Scientist.”
