TWICE’s Jihyo to make solo debut with ‘Killin’ Me Good’ this August

South Korean singer Jihyo, of K-pop girl group TWICE, is set to make her solo debut this August.

On June 5 at Midnight KST, the girl group had first shared a teaser poster hinting at a new release in August titled ‘Killin’ Me Good’. The image features a hand — presumably one of the TWICE members’ — holding onto a steering wheel.


JYP Entertainment has since confirmed that the teaser was for Jihyo’s upcoming solo debut. A newly released teaser at midnight KST today (June 9), revealed Jihyo as the driver of the car in the previous image.

The singer has also been performing an unreleased solo track titled ‘Nightmare’ on the group’s ongoing ‘Ready To Be’ world tour, leading fans to believe that Jihyo would be the next TWICE member to make her debut as a soloist.

This will make Jihyo the second member of TWICE to make her official solo debut, after vocalist Nayeon released her debut EP ‘Im Nayeon’ and its lead single ‘POP!’ in June 2022.

Additionally, member Chaeyoung hinted during a March 2023 interview that the group and its members would be releasing more solo projects moving forward.

Their latest release as a group had been their March mini-album ‘Ready To Be’, which was led by the single ‘Set Me Free’. In support of its release, the group later embarked on their ‘Ready To Be’ world tour the following month with a two-night concert in Seoul.


TWICE have since completed the Japan and Australia legs of the tour, with the North American leg set to begin later this week. The group have also announced tour dates in Asia and Europe in September 2023.
