The July 12 broadcast of SBS Power FM’s “2 O’Clock Escape Cultwo Show” featured TWICE, who recently made a return with their “Summer Nights” album and title track “Dance the Night Away.”
During the show, the MC noticed that Jungyeon didn’t look well and asked if she was sick. Jungyeon, to everyone’s surprise, broke out in tears, but said she was fine.
TWICE leader Jihyo stepped in for Jungyeon, saying, “Jungyeon hasn’t been feeling well since this morning. She’s worried a lot because her dog is really sick.”
Jungyeon stepped out of the studio for a second to rein in her emotions, while host Kim Tae Kyun understandingly put the show on a brief hold until she returned, letting the audience know that they need not worry. Nevertheless, fans and listeners sent their love and support to Jungyeon through messages to the show.
Also on the day’s broadcast, TWICE talked about their new title “Dance the Night Away,” which, with its stellar chart performance, is yet another hit under TWICE’s belt and a continuation of the group’s streak of hits since their debut. When asked if they ever check how they’re doing on charts, TWICE revealed that they do so much more. “Nayeon said, “We also stream, and we check the chart ranking every hour. If you check the members’ phones, everyone has the sound off and is streaming [our song].”
On their latest choreography, Jihyo said it does their dieting for them: “Our choreography this time is pretty difficult. We’re always jumping. Because it’s summer and so hot, we sweat a lot, but since we’re dancing too, it’s an automatic diet.” Without needing to name a single member, TWICE said the choreography is taxing to everyone, even Momo, who is known for her dancing prowess. But they love it, said Momo: “We did a lot of cute choreography before, but this time, we wanted something more powerful.”
