Watch: Song Ji Hyo + Jun So Min Attempt TWICE’s Sana’s Legendary “Sha Sha Sha” Aegyo On “Running Man”
On the June 7 episode of the SBS variety show, all nine members of TWICE appeared as guests and split up into teams to compete alongside the “Running Man” cast.
During the opening of the show, Yoo Jae Suk pointed out that Sana’s lines often became some of the most famous and imitated parts of TWICE songs, commenting, “Whatever Sana sings becomes [that song’s] ‘killing part.'”
Referring to her viral “sha sha sha” line from TWICE’s breakout hit “Cheer Up,” Yoo Jae Suk went on, “To be honest, ‘sha sha sha’ in and of itself isn’t all that special, but Sana brought it to life. It wouldn’t have become a big deal if she had just sung it in a matter-of-fact way.” The other “Running Man” members agreed, asking Sana to demonstrate the classic aegyo for them on the spot, and Sana put a smile on their faces as she readily complied.
Ji Suk Jin then asked Jun So Min to try imitating Sana’s “sha sha sha,” but the actress was unable to elicit the same blissful reaction from her castmates. Yoo Jae Suk joked, “No, not like that,” before turning to Song Ji Hyo and requesting that she give it a shot as well.
Song Ji Hyo gamely agreed, but hid in embarrassment behind Lee Kwang Soo once she was finished. Jun So Min jokingly added, “Or you could do it in a sexy way,” before launching into a “sexier” version of Sana’s “sha sha sha.” HaHa responded with a laugh, “At least So Min is trying hard!”
