TWICE‘s Jihyo has been showing off a sporty new side of herself over the past few months. It started with her partnership with Under Armour that had fans in awe of her fitness journey.
Now Jihyo has her own photo book coming out called Yes, I am Jihyo where she is getting to show off that sporty side again.
While the Under Armour shoot focused on athletic wear, for this photo book Jihyo decided that one of her looks would be inspired by an unexpected sport, skateboarding.
On the day of shooting, Jihyo was initially nervous to exit her trailer as she hadn’t worn anything like this since her debut. The look combined skate park chic with a cute pigtail moment to show off Jihyo’s charms. She confessed that she had “worked up the courage” to wear this look.
Unfortunately for Jihyo, there was a bit of a misunderstanding between her and the staff that caused her to become shy. Upon seeing her adorable skate park pigtails, the staff couldn’t help but giggle as Jihyo revealed this new, cute side of herself.
Jihyo mistook this for the staff laughing at her and was feeling a bit unsure at first.
Luckily, her staff is supportive and understands Jihyo’s needs. They kept complimenting this cute new hairdo until Jihyo’s nervous shyness turned into embarrassed shyness.Jihyo admitted that she understood the staffs’ surprise as this look is very different from her style.
Jihyo then shared that she rocked the style to give ONCEs the feeling that she was a “...sporty girl who came to skateboard with [them].”
After her whole pigtail ordeal was over, Jihyo was asked if she was planning to keep the trendy look. She said that maybe she’d wear the outfit again but “never the hair.”
