These five idols often sing the first verse in their group’s songs. It can be the whole of the first verse, or part of it.

In an interview with Black Eyed Pilseung (producer of most of the songs TWICE) said that Naen was always given the opening parts, because she has the freshest and most playful voice among the members of TWICE. And, as a rule, the participants who are the main or lead vocalists are usually given the first line in the songs to attract the attention of listeners.
While Jihe is also a great candidate for the opening lines, Black Eyed Pilseung thinks her voice is more suitable for the chorus.
