Top Five Most Beautiful TWICE Members
I must first clarify that this ranking is just my opinion. All members are beautiful and they each have their own charm that contribute to the success and popularity of each comeback and the group as a whole. However, each comeback and songs are suited better for some members than other. Which is why some members get more attention or look more beautiful depending on the concept. Also this ranking is not based on who is my favorite member or more popular at the moment of each comeback.
