Prepared to take on the music scene with their young, relatable nature, Pledis Entertainment’s new group, TWS, has presented their enthusiasm through an endearing debut. After being introduced to the world through their captivating pre-debut single, “Oh Mymy: 7s,” TWS finally made their official debut on January 22 with their mini album, Sparkling Blue.

Composed of five songs, the boys of TWS, Shinyu, DohoonYoungjae, HanjinJihoon, and Kyungmin, showcase their friendship and youthfulness throughout this concise album. Each song connects to these themes, relaying various experiences many tweens and teens can relate to, such as the desire to fit in with others and trying to maintain strong, meaningful friendships.

The title track and opener, “plot twist,” is a bubbly pop number where the members make a formal introduction to the K-Pop world. The song’s English title differs from the Korean version, with the Korean title translating to “The first meeting didn’t go as planned.” Both titles describe this song effectively by encompassing the essence of its narrative. 

Considering this album is many listeners’ first encounter with TWS’ music, they speak about how daunting it can be to make a positive first impression.
