A tween is a child somewhere between the ages of 8 or 9 and 12. A tween considers herself no longer a little child, but she is not quite a teenager.
I have a tween at home who has multiple personalities she can beat Jekyll and Hyde hands down.... And well, as far as watching TV goes, she watches every thing from Disney Junior Channels , Nickelodeon Channels to my Chinese and Korean costume drama series.....

In this new half-hour musical comedy, diva Sun Hi (Megan Lee), fashionista Jodi (Louriza Tronco) and bookworm Corki (Erika Tham) must learn to live together in perfect harmony after they are randomly selected to be room mates at the boarding school they are in.
With the help of fellow classmate and aspiring DJ, Caleb (Dale Whibley), the girls grow from roommates to bandmates as their group, XO-IQ, becomes a school-wide sensation and they compete for a place in the upcoming school musical, all while balancing music, grades, relationship and crushes.
Viacom International Media Networks’ The Next Normal study found that listening to music and watching television are two of the top activities tweens between 9 and 14 years old enjoy when they are stressed. Ok, so that is why my little tween does that all the time... huhuhu...
Make It Pop will be featuring original songs and performances with a modern pop twist and an EDM beat from the show’s emerging, real-life group, XO-IQ.
The show’s cast includes Lee, an ethnic Korean who is a young rising superstar and YouTuber who debuted as a singer in South Korea and Tronco, a Canadian of Filipino descent who appeared in her first professional theatre gig at the age of eight and has gone on to act in television shows and a movie. Tham, who was born in Singapore and is of Malaysian, Chinese, Dutch and Ukrainian heritage, marks her first television starring role with Make It Pop.
Make It Pop is co-created by Thomas W. Lynch (The Secret World of Alex Mack, South of Nowhere) and Nick Cannon (Nickelodeon HALO Awards)and produced by DHX Media. Lynch and Cannon will serve as executive producers together with DHX Media’s Steven DeNure and Anne Loi.
The musical direction of the series is being led by Bill Silva Entertainment, with music supervision by Peter Coquillard and Pilar McCurry of Silva Music Publishing. XO-IQ is managed by Bill Silva Management. Nickelodeon announced in May this year that the series has been renewed for a second season.
So there you have it, do not forget to catch the series Make It Pop, on Monday, 31 August at 5pm (TH/WIB), 6pm (HK/MY/SG), and 6.30pm (PH)
