TWICE Shares Thoughts On Their Recent Achievements, Travel Must-Haves, And Recommends Songs For Learning Korean
Following their first sold out concert in Singapore last year, TWICE is back for their “TWICELAND Zone 2: Fantasy Park” tour! We were at the press conference to meet the girls and find out their thoughts on their upcoming gig. Here are some of the highlights:
How does it feel like to return to Singapore and perform at a venue that is twice as large as last year’s?
Nayeon: I’m grateful to be back in Singapore within one year, and am really looking forward to the concert.
Jihyo: I’m thankful to see double the fans that we used to have, and I’m really looking forward to meeting you all.
How will your second concert here be different from your first concert last year?
Chaeyoung: There will be plenty more songs and unit performances that fans can look forward to!
During your concert, which song do you enjoy performing the most?
Tzuyu: I like performing “Only 너,” since it’s a song where many ONCEs sing along with us.
Dahyun: My favorite moment is when the stage opens; I get goosebumps as soon as I hear cheers from fans, and I really look forward to meeting them!
If you could design a fantasy park, what facilities would you like to have in it?
Sana: Personally, I really like roller coasters, and if any ONCEs want to join in on the roller coaster as well, we can enjoy it together!
TWICE recently became the first female foreign artist to have a single album certified double platinum in Japan. How do you feel about this remarkable achievement?
Jihyo: When we first debuted in Korea, our song “TT” became a hit. I think it’s really cool that fans in Japan also really liked that song, which brought us there and I’m thankful to be given the opportunity to be awarded.
Can you share an anecdote of something exciting or funny that occurred behind the scenes while filming your music videos?
Tzuyu: We really like to play this game called “Mafia,” and we always play it while waiting to film our MVs. I really like it!
Jeongyeon: When filming our music video “What Is Love,” we actually had to dress up as males, which was very memorable for me.
Where would you like to visit, or what would you like to try on this trip?
Momo: When I visit Singapore, I usually order Chilli Crab or Black Pepper Crab (famous local dishes). I got the chance to try it yesterday, so I was really happy.
Sana: I really like the Mantou (fried bun) that comes together with the Chilli Crab, and I want to have it again before we leave Singapore.
What is one item that you have to carry with you for your overseas schedules, and why?
Jihyo: My camera! I really like photography, so I bought a new camera last year, and enjoy filling up my photo albums with pictures of other people and myself.
Jeongyeon: My headphones, as I like listening to music. Whenever I’m on the plane, my ears hurt, but with my headphones they don’t hurt as much.
Dahyun: Since we travel a lot, I always ensure that I bring my skincare products, in order to keep my skin healthy after wearing makeup for a long period of time.
Momo: I like to have plenty of snacks to eat during our flight!
Chaeyoung: I like brushing my hair, so I always have a comb with me.
Tzuyu: Bath bombs! I like taking baths in our hotel whenever we travel, so this is an essential.
Mina: My tablet, so I can watch movies.
Nayeon: My eye mask, since I can’t fall asleep unless it’s totally dark.
What is your favourite TWICE song, and why?
Momo: I like “TT.” A lot of people got to know us through that song, and the dance moves are easy enough for people to follow as well.
Dahyun: I like all our songs, but if I had to choose, it would be “Like Ooh-Ahh.” This is our debut song, so it’s special to me.
Which TWICE song would you recommend to help people learn Korean?
Tzuyu: “You In My Heart.” I think that the lyrics are really well-written, and it’s a lovely song. I would like it if people can learn and know what the lyrics mean.
Jihyo: “What Is Love,” as the lyrics have simple words that can be used in everyday life, plus, the song is quite catchy.
Fans can expect special stage set-ups with spectacular visuals at the “TWICELAND Zone 2: Fantasy Park.” Special thanks to ONE Production for inviting us to the press conference!
