I. Introduction To Sana
Sana is a member of the K-pop girl group Twice, formed by JYP Entertainment. Sana is one of Twice's three Japanese trinity members.
Sana attended EXPG (Exile Professional Gym) Osaka branch, dance and vocal studio where many Japanese idols trained, including some members of E-girls, Generations and The Rampage, from 2009 to early 2012.
She first got interested in K-pop because of Girls' Generation's and KARA's rising popularity in Japan. At age 14, in her last year of middle school, she was scouted by JYP Entertainment while shopping with friends at the Osaka Namba Walk, a popular underground shopping mall. The JYPE scouts invited Sana to the 2011 JYP Japan Audition which was held in Osaka (19/11/2011) and Tokyo (25/11/2011). During the audition, Sana performed the 'Mr. Taxi' choreography by Girls' Generation.
After graduating from middle school in March 2012, she moved to South Korea to start her JYP trainee-ship on April 13th, 2012 together with TWICE's Momo. In 2014, she appeared in the music video of Got7's "A" and Junho's "Feel", making her noticeable and likeable by the public eye.
In 2015, Sana was a contestant on the TV Show Sixteen in order to become a member of JYP's upcoming girl group. Out of the sixteen contestants, Sana was selected as one of the nine members of the newly formed girl group. She debuted with Twice in October 2015 with the title song "Like Ooh-Ahh" from their debut album, The Story Begins.
TWICE went on to be one of the pillars in K-pop and the Nation's Girl Group.
