TWICE‘s Mina may be a world famous K-Pop idol, but that doesn’t imply she will be able to’t even be a fan of different singers! In an interview with Allure, she opened up about her music style and gave some shocking solutions.
She apparently likes rock music, naming the band King Gnu as one in all her favorites. They are identified for his or her songs “Kasa” (2019) and “Hakujitsu” (2020).
I hearken to a number of band songs too. There is a Japanese band ‘King Gnu’, their songs are actually good. I shared a music participant with my brother, so I additionally listened to a number of Japanese Band songs he listened to.
This isn’t all—her music tastes are diverse, and pop songs have all the time been an important alternative for her. She confirmed this when she was requested, “Before meeting K-Pop, what kind of songs did you mainly listen to?”
I additionally listened to idols like AKB48 and adopted the choreography too.

They pioneered the idol-next-door idea as they steadily carried out in small theaters in entrance of their followers, held handshake occasions, and extra. The first technology was revealed in 2005, making Mina simply eight years outdated on the time.

Unlike most K-Pop teams, AKB48’s lineup is consistently altering. They have a commencement system the place members can depart or “graduate” from the group as soon as they select to. New members fill within the empty slots and slowly climb to the highest by constructing their fanbase.
These prime members are acknowledged in each Senbatsu Election the place followers can vote for his or her favourite members in AKB48 and their sister teams. These embrace HKT48 based mostly in Hakata, NMB48 based mostly in Namba, SKE48 based mostly in Sakae, and extra.
