TWICE launches metaverse fan community TWICE Square in ‘Roblox’

Roblox is reportedly also brainstorming spaces for other JYP Entertainment K-pop artists, such as ITZY and Stray Kids

March 9, 2023
K-pop girl group TWICE has launched a virtual fan world on “Roblox.”
The fan world, TWICE Square, was inspired by TWICE’s 2018 “Yes or Yes” music video and includes the group’s official colors, apricot and neon magenta. Players can participate in two mini-games: “Set Me Free,” an escape room challenge named after the group’s upcoming lead single, and a timed trivia challenge. 
The space offers fans the opportunity to purchase, collect and trade a variety of in-game items, including plushies and an assortment of avatar clothing items based on the members’ real-life styles. In addition, fans can use emotes that are inspired by TWICE‘s most popular dance moves.
While “Roblox” has hosted virtual K-pop concerts in the past, TWICE Square is a metaverse space with forthcoming routine rollouts and activities.

“Roblox” also teased that individual TWICE members may hop in from time to time and engage with their fans. 
TWICE’s large in-game fanbase was part of the inspiration for creating the space, with some communities having over 10,000 members.
Following the launch of TWICE Square, “Roblox” is also brainstorming spaces for other JYP Entertainment artists, such as ITZY or Stray Kids
TWICE is set to release their new album, “Ready to Be,” on Friday. The highly anticipated release includes their latest single, “Set Me Free,” in both English and Korean. Prior to the album’s launch, the group will perform on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” and on Tuesday, they are scheduled to appear on “The Kelly Clarkson Show.”
Last month, TWICE announced their fifth world tour, which shares the same name as their new album. Last week, all nine members attended the Billboard Women in Music Awards and were honored with the Breakthrough Award.
