Background and release
On January 18, 2017, it was reported that Twice would be releasing a special album after their concert in Seoul. In early February, Twice officially announced the release of the reissue of Twicecoaster: Lane 1, titled Twicecoaster: Lane 2, on February 20 with the brand new track "Knock Knock".
The track list for Twicecoaster: Lane 2 was revealed on February 12. It contains 13 tracks: the seven songs from the original release, additional two new songs, a remix version and instrumental of "TT", as well as the instrumental tracks for "Like Ooh-Ahh" from The Story Begins and "Cheer Up" from Page Two. The album, along with the music video for "Knock Knock", was officially released on the 20th of February. It was also released as a digital download on various music sites.
The music video for the title track "Knock Knock" was directed by Naive Creative Production. Stop-motion effect was used in some of the scenes in the video. It earned almost 10 million views on YouTube within 24 hours since its release and set a new record for the fastest K-pop group music video to reach 30 million view count in only 152 hours.
A sense of innocence was portrayed in the music video, which featured Twice having fun in a slumber party and snowball fight. Producer Park Jin-young, founder of JYP Entertainment, also had a short appearance. The last scene was the same ending as the music video of "TT".
On February 20, 2017, Twice had a live broadcast on Naver V Live at 20:00 KST to celebrate their comeback with fans. The group talked about the album, the title track "Knock Knock" and its music video, as well as their first solo concert which was held on February 17–19 and Asian tour. They also performed the full choreography of "Knock Knock" for the first time.
The next day, Twice recorded their appearance on the February 25th episode of You Hee-yeol's Sketchbook, their first variety show for Twicecoaster: Lane 2. The group's appearance was included in the show's special monthly episodes with the concept "Songs I want to sing for those in their 20s."
