Twice′s Momo and Tzuyu are Thankful for Opportunity to Debut
Twice members Momo and Tzuyu expressed gratitude for being given a second chance to join the group.
When a reporter asked, "When the survival program began, there were originally supposed to be seven members. What has changed since Momo and Tzuyu were added on during the final episode?" at the group′s debut showcase, held at the AX Hall Korea on October 20, Momo answered, "I was amazed that I made it after being eliminated. I was shocked, and I′m happy to be debuting with Twice. I will show you good things."The Twice members were selected through Mnet′s survival program Sixteen, which aired in May. After a fierce competition, nine JYP Entertainment trainees were ultimately selected. Although a seven-member girl group was planned at the time, Park Jin Young made the controversial decision to add Momo and Tzuyu in the final episode.
When asked the same question, Tzuyu said, "Two additional members were selected at the end, but I had no idea I′d get picked. I′m thankful for the opportunity to debut like this. I will work hard and not disappoint."
Chaeyeon said, "We were able to show more of ourselves through Sixteen. Park Jin Young PD-nim said to just show ourselves as we are. I think if we work hard with our own color, we′ll see good results."
Meanwhile, Twice made its debut with the release of The Story Begins on October 20, which features tracks by talented composers like Black Eyed Pilseung, who created the lead single Like OOH-AHH and more.
