Jihyo’s Childhood Photos Explain Why She Used to Be Mistaken as a Foreigner

You could say it was a blessing in disguise.

TWICE‘s Jihyo revealed a story of how she used to be mistaken for a foreigner.

On the 388th episode of KBS2’s Hello Counsellor, TWICE’s Jihyo and Mina featured as guests.

After hearing about a worry regarding having an unusual appearance, Jihyo and Mina expressed their sympathy.

In particular, Jihyo provided words of comfort by saying, “I was born with distinct double eyelids, so I’ve often been mistaken as a foreigner.”

Jihyo trained under JYP Entertainment since more than 10 years ago, and her exotic looks were captured on camera.

In the footage, Jihyo’s big eyes and distinct features can be clearly seen.

On another variety program, Jihyo revealed that she once modeled for a magazine because of her exotic looks.

She revealed that she took 2nd place in a child star competition when she was in elementary school which ultimately led to her being cast.

However, Jihyo proves that insecurity can be turned into a strong point.
