TWICE was announced as the newest Global Ambassadors for A Filipino Clothing brand, BENCH.
Hours before the official announcement, rumors were already spreading among fans that TWICE will be the global ambassadors for the brand as someone posted a photo of the endorsement after being announced by the brand to its employees. However, no official announcement was made to the general public, leaving fans wondering if it was fake or true!

Hours after, the brand eventually announced that TWICE was chosen as the newest global ambassadors or #GlobalBENCHsetters” as they would call it.
They’re One in a Million and they’re here as your newest GlobalBenchsetters.

BENCH posted a video with all 9 members on social media on December 6. In the video, all TWICE members greeted their fans and said that they are very happy to be the newest Global Benchsetters.
ONCEs, especially Filipino ONCEs, are definitely excited for this collaboration and are looking forward to seeing their favorite girls everywhere in the brand’s botiques and even on huge billboards along major roads in the Philippines!

A possible fan meet is also giving fans even more reason to be excited about the collaboration as BENCH has always or most of the time brought their ambassadors on stage for a fan meeting. The most recent one was Park Seo Joon‘s fan meet in Manila as organized by the brand.
Twice x Bench? Fanmeet? I'm ready. 😁

K-Drama artists have also worked with BENCH previously including actors, Ji Chang Wook, Park Seo Joon, Park Shin Hye, and Lee Min Ho. This seems to be the first time the brand worked with a K-Pop group and with all members of the group.
