On the other hand, JYP Entertainment recorded its highest-ever performance in the third quarter of this year due to its high growth in overseas music sales. Starting in the fourth quarter, each artist is expected to actively engage in activities starting with TWICE and resume offline performances, which is expected to increase the record further.
