How One ONCE’s Trip To IKEA Took An Unexpected Turn Thanks To His Girlfriend

This ONCE got the surprise of his life.

In something that seems to be a bit more frequent than normal, ONCEs have been randomly running into members of TWICE in the oddest places.

We’ve already had a ONCE randomly bump into Jeongyeon and Dahyun while at the gym, and this ONCE had a similar experience…but it wouldn’t have happened if his girlfriend hadn’t brought it to his attention!

The male ONCE posted on a Korean TWICE forum that he and girlfriend randomly happened to shopping in IKEA when he saw someone lying down on one of the display sofas, and feeling a bit tired himself, he thought it was a good idea to do the same.

That’s when his girlfriend said the words that rocked his world:

“Hey, isn’t that Jihyo of TWICE?”

Shocked out of his mind, he didn’t recognize her at first because she looked “so normal” (i.e. not in “idol mode”)! Turns out Jihyo was at IKEA shopping for carpets with her dad!

While the male ONCE decided not to approach her in order to respect her “off-time” (so no photos, sorry guys!), he did notice her insane visuals, and funnily enough loved her khaki coat she was wearing. In fact, he loved it so much that he plans on getting it for his girlfriend!

ONCEs immediately took to Twitter with wishes that they could have been the male ONCE and that Jihyo was so cute spending time with her dad.

Though there were a few jokesters who made some hilarious comments about the situation.

Here’s a few of our favorites:

Now we’re wondering, what random location with there be a TWICE encounter next?
