The annual Forbes "30 Under 30 Asia" List has been released, and it highlights 300 young entrepreneurs, leaders, and changemakers who are making a difference in the world! They were selected based on "leadership, impact, success, and entrepreneurial spirit." 

Among the most popular names in the celebrity category are 28-year old Korean actress Park So Dam and K-pop girl group TWICE. 

So Dam's profile highlights her role as Jessica in the award-winning film Parasite (2019), which became the first-ever foreign language film to win the best picture award at the Academy Awards. The film also introduced us to her most famous line: "Jessica, Only Child, Illinois, Chicago." 

Meanwhile, TWICE is described as one of the most popular K-pop girl groups in recent years.

The group's Forbes profile reads: "In 2019, the nine-member group, which includes three from Japan and one from Taiwan, was named Best Female Group at the Mnet Asian Music Awards. Also in 2019, TWICE  scored their second No. 1 on Billboard's World Digital Song Sales chart with 'Feel Special,' which has 188 million views on YouTube.
