The Kakao Friends TWICE Edition, a collection for Kakao Friends that the group TWICE helped to design, will be launching on October 19. With “Always Together” as the title for its concept, the collection features a total of 23 products that are most closely connected to TWICE’s everyday life. 

According to the group’s label, JYP Entertainment, the members of the group were directly involved in the planning and design process of the products. “The members actively came up with various ideas from the first meeting. It was a genuine involvement where they poured their love into the characters and showed off their hidden drawing skills during the design process,” revealed a source from the label. 

A source from Kakao IX stated, “Thanks to TWICE’s unique suggestions and genuine involvement, which were rooted in their love for Kakao Friends, the best collaborative result was able to be born.”

For two days, starting on the launch date for the Kakao Friends TWICE Edition on October 19, free gifts will be handed out on a first-come-first-served basis at Kakao Friends stores in Gangnam and Hongdae in Seoul, as well as in Busan.
