    Twins are a Hong Kong-based female Cantopop duo which was created in the summer of 2001 by Emperor Entertainment Group. Twins are made up of two girls, Charlene Choi Cheuk-Yin and Gillian Chung Yan-Tung. They were a popular group in Hong Kong and a top band in China. Their fanbase have included Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Canada, Australia, United States and Philippines. Their music was generally targeted at young teens, but in 2004 they began to attract a wider audience by venturing into different styles of music. In July 2008 the duo announced their split after the Edison Chen photo scandal involving Gillian Chung. After two years the group finally reunited in 2010.
