TWICE’s Nayeon Clarifies A Common Fan Misconception That She Learned From Her Profile

She couldn’t believe her ears when she heard it.

As K-Pop idols, the TWICE members have online profiles written about them by big fans. These fans get to know them by reading their interviews, seeing their messages on apps like Weverse, and watching their content on YouTube. However, they don’t always get everything right!


In fact, Nayeon recently learned about a misconception written about her in her profile.

Several weeks ago, the “POP!” singer and fellow members Sana and Momo were special guests on the TheKstarNextDoor web series hosted by Jonathan where he read out loud their K-Profiles.

Nayeon clearly couldn’t believe her ears when she heard him say her nickname is “K-Scooping” because she “picked her nose so much.” Fans had apparently “caught” her in the act.

Nayeon K-Profile. Real name Im Nayeon, and here it says ‘K-Scooping.’ Habitual nose picking. You picked your nose so much that the fans caught you.

— Jonathan

But it couldn’t have been more false! According to Nayeon, she doesn’t pick her nose, she simply touches it. It may look like she’s picking it because of how close her finger is to her nostril, but she would never do it in public—if at all.

  • Nayeon: I just touch it like this. So it’s not that I’m picking my nose but… Did you understand?
  • Jonathan: I think I have to understand.

On one hand, when fans gave her the nickname of K-Scooping, they may have already known that she wasn’t actually scooping up anything in her nose and were simply poking fun at her. But if they truly thought otherwise, then Nayeon was there to clear up the misconception.
