Each of the three members was happy to watch their old performances, and the students enjoyed watching, too.

While watching a performance of “TT,” the student Jihyo was sitting with said that TWICE was really popular back in 2016 when the song was released. He asked Jihyo how she felt back then as the group got more and more popular.

Jihyo revealed that she and the other members couldn’t really feel how popular they were during their first year because they were so busy and exhausted. She said, “The previous day’s schedule went over to the next day’s schedule so we didn’t have time to sleep at all, so we couldn’t really feel it.”

Jihyo said the group started to feel their popularity while promoting “TT,” which was about a year after their debut with “Like OOH-AHH.” She said, “‘TT’ was released at the end of the year, and we started to feel it.”

Although it took about a year for TWICE to realize how famous they were, we’re glad they get to enjoy their success and popularity now!
