TWICE‘s Jihyo takes over the cover of Allure‘s new Global Beauty Issue for May 2020.
The new issue features the K-pop star on the cover, and her bandmates – Nayeon, Jeongyeon, Momo, Sana, Mina, Dahyun, Chaeyoung, and Tzuyu – inside, as they showcase South Korea as an incredible source of beauty innovation and creativity.
Here’s what Jihyo shared with the magazine:
On becoming a trainee at eight years old: “Because I started [performing] at a very young age, I felt like this is the only thing I could do.”
On not feeling compelled to fit an unrealistic body image: “I’m happy making money to buy delicious food and eat it with my friends. I don’t think I have to look skinny.”
On how online gaming provides anonymity, if only for a few moments a week: “I’m always tense and cautious about how people see me. But when I’m playing online games, I can feel the truest to myself. Nobody can judge me through [the screen]. That’s why I feel most comfortable.”
