With upbeat songs like “Cheer Up” and “Knock Knock” under their belt, you’d expect the members of TWICE to be a ball of energy at the press conference ahead of their first concert in Singapore, TWICELAND in Singapore. However, the members seemed mellow and shy as they greeted the media yesterday. Nonetheless, the cute personalities of the nine members, Jeongyeon, Tzuyu, Chaeyoung, Sana, Nayeon, Dahyun, Mina, Jihyo and Momo shone through as they took turns to introduce themselves to the media – in English.
The nonet tackled questions posed by the media in Korean with the help of a translator – save for member Tzuyu who slipped in a line in Mandarain – so it’s not surprising that at the end of the press conference, leader Jihyo told the media, “We hope we’ll be better at English the next time we come here (laughs).”
Here are the highlights of the press conference.
