“We are taking selfies with Once (Twice’s fan club name),” Jihyo said opening up the broadcast. “You know there was something like ‘Taking selfie with Twice’ in the ‘Likey’ album. Today is the day to take selfies.”
“I posted a selfie wearing this and fans asked when it was. It’s today!” Nayeon said.
Their postings, however, seemed to cause more than simple entertainment as Jihyo explained Momo’s post stirred up the excitement of the fans who had been waiting for the new update from their favorite K-pop star.
“You know it was really fun that Momo posted a picture on Twice’s Instagram account,” Jihyo said. “But she typed ‘Twice-zone’ instead of ‘Twice-zine’ for a hashtag. So fans thought it was a spoiler for our concert.”
“They thought the theme for our next concert would be ‘Twice Zone,’ which follows the theme of our previous concert ‘Twice land,’” she said.
Twice kicked off its first concert tour “Twiceland -- the Opening” in February last year and wrapped it up in June.

The video played audio samples from the album, which consists of six songs, including its lead track “La La La,” “Lucky,” “Iron Boy,” “Metronome,” “Color Me” and “Butterfly.”
“Lucky” is to be released on Feb. 21 at 6 p.m.
Weki Meki debuted in August as an 8-member act consisting of Choi Yoo-jung, Kim Do-yeon, Ji Su-yeon, Elly, Sei, Lua, Rina and Lucy.
The group already enjoyed media attention even before its debut as Choi and Kim appeared on Mnet’s survival audition show “Produce 101” and previously debuted as members of the project girl group I.O.I, which disbanded last year after its 1-year contract expired.

“Many people don’t know, but I will prove the real value of my cooking skills,” Mina said in full of confidence.
The two, however, looked clumsy while cooking, as they kept failing to find the proper concentration of the paste and poured it paste into the pan without turning on the burner.
“We have to put more water in. The fans are also telling us to make the paste thin. That will become kimchi ricecake,” Mina said on Mimi’s paste.
“I’d been clumsy in cooking so far. So I’m watching many meokbang (eating show) and dramas,” Mimi said.
“What’s the relationship between cooking and meokbang or drama?” Mina teased.
After several twist and turns, the two succeeded in making a decent kimchi pancake.
