TWICE is undeniably one of K-Pop’s most beloved girl groups. The members have shown their incredible performance skills in their seven years together, tackling cute and elegant concepts.

In a recent interview with Cosmopolitan, TWICE showed off their incredible fashion sense and stunning visuals.

And while their recent record-breaking world tour is proof of the group’s popularity, the members all had different answers when asked about the first time they realized just how famous they were.

Sana had a specific moment where she first felt famous, recognizing TWICE’s virality when their choreography spread across the internet.

For me, it was when we dropped “TT.” A lot of people started posing with the “TT” hand move and it spread on social media. Because there were so many people posting, it helped us realize, with our own eyes, that we were gaining fans.

For Mina and Momo, the affirmation of TWICE’s popularity came not from their fans but from their music commonly playing in public spaces.

When I first heard our song playing in public. It felt like ‘Ah, we’re finally out in the world.’



It was so fascinating when I was walking in the streets and I heard our song playing in public. It hit me in that moment that I debuted and people are actually listening to our music.



Dahyun admits that the small daily moments of interacting with fans help her realize the extent of TWICE’s popularity.

Mine is a small thing but I love it when I get recognized at a restaurant and the owner gives us a little something extra, extra bread or dessert, or plays TWICE songs because we’re there. Also, recently, I had someone working at the airport recognize me. They even knew a song I covered, so it was really fascinating.

But, surprisingly, Tzuyu and Jeongyeon only recognized just how popular they were on their recent tour.

I actually felt ‘Wow, we really are receiving a lot of love’ when we were able to hold our encore stadium shows recently.

My only goal as we debuted was to have people recognize our group name and it’s hitting me now that we’re able to have a world tour.
