TWICE Nayeon‘s international popularity has grown exponentially since her debut in 2015, but did you know that fellow member Mina was one of her first fans?
In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, TWICE was asked about their first impressions of each other. Mina revealed that she actually knew of Nayeon long before they met because of her online photo.
They had already published your photo as a trainee, so I knew what you looked like.
She couldn’t hide her excitement when she finally saw Nayeon in the flesh.
And when I ran into you in person, I went, ‘Wow…it’s Nayeon!‘
Even if Mina was also a trainee at that time, she acted like a true fan and asked for a picture! Nayeon distinctly remembered that day and happily shared the story for everyone to hear.
That’s why you asked to take a picture with me? She asked me. I remember. You know the shoe closet? Mina had to go back to Japan during her break, and she talked to me for the first time before she left. She asked me to take a photo with her.
Mina defended herself, shouting, “That takes guts!”
Remembering the past, she blushed and covered her face.
Mina’s reaction is exactly how most fans would also act if they saw Nayeon in person!
