TWICE has been one of the most famous K-Pop groups in the world for many years now, but it took a while for Mina to really feel their popularity!
In an interview with Vanity Fair, the topic was brought up when Mina was asked, “What was the first moment you realized you were famous?” She wrote down her answer and the rest of TWICE guessed what she picked.
Nayeon was the first to try her luck, and she asked if it was when Mina was recognized in Japan or her mom’s friends wanted her autograph.
When people recognized you in Japan? When your mom’s friends asked for an autograph?
On the other hand, Dahyun chose the time she heard TWICE’s songs in public.
When you heard our music playing in public.
Jihyo guessed it was when “TT” was promoted on Tokyo Tower, one of the most popular tourist spots in all of Japan.
Nayeon corrected her, saying, “That was Sana!”
Since no one shouted the correct answer yet, Mina gave a hint and said that Dahyun had the closest answer out of all. Momo then asked if it had anything to do with their songs playing in a drama.
When you watched a drama and our song came on.
Chaeyoung took a try at it, saying, “When you ate at a restaurant and our song came on.”
That also wasn’t correct, so Sana and Jihyo shouted other related answers.
When people made dance covers of our songs. When you go to a store and they recognize you and play your song.
After many wrong guesses, Dahyun finally answered the correct one—when Mina saw a TWICE poster on the street!
When you’re walking down the street and you see our poster.
Mina explained that she was shocked when she saw a big poster of themselves. She couldn’t believe the girl in the picture was her. In awe, she asked herself, “Is this me?”
It was really fascinating. When I was looking at it, I was thinking, ‘Is this me?‘
Apart from sharing the moment she realized she’s famous, Mina also named her worst habit. Read more about it here:
