Introduction

Tzuyu (Hangul: 쯔위) is a Taiwanese singer, dancer and songwriter under JYP Entertainment. She gained prominence as the maknae of the popular group TWICE.

Tzuyu's journey in the world of K-pop began in 2012 when she was discovered by talent scouts at the MUSE Performing Arts Workshop in Tainan, Taiwan. Impressed by her talent and potential, she made the life-changing decision to travel to South Korea in November of that year to pursue her dreams as a K-pop trainee. Her unwavering dedication and hard work paid off when she was given the opportunity to participate in the South Korean reality show Sixteen in 2015. Through the intense competition, Tzuyu emerged as one of the chosen to become one of the main members of TWICE.

Debuting as the youngest member of TWICE on October 20, 2015, with their first extended play (EP) titled "The Story Begins," Tzuyu captured the hearts of fans worldwide with her captivating visuals, impressive vocals, and graceful presence. Her contributions to the group have played a significant role in their rise to stardom and continuous success.

In November 2015, Tzuyu appeared alongside TWICE on the popular Korean variety show, My Little Television. During her introduction, she proudly identified herself as Taiwanese and held the flags of both the Republic of China (Taiwan) and South Korea. Unfortunately, her innocent action unintentionally ignited controversy and sparked a negative reaction from mainland Chinese internet users due to the political tensions between the two countries at the time. Consequently, TWICE faced restrictions on Chinese television, and Tzuyu's endorsement deal with Chinese communications company Huawei was terminated. Controversially to address the situation, JYP Entertainment released a video of Tzuyu issuing a heartfelt apology.

The incident involving Tzuyu's apology caused a significant uproar among the Taiwanese public, particularly on the day of the 2016 general election. It gained international attention and was believed to have influenced the decision of approximately more than a million young voters, highlighting the impact that her actions had beyond the realm of entertainment.
