Every ONCE knows the story of Tzuyu getting scouted by a JYPE staff member who saw a video of her during a dance showcase back in 2012. Five months after the showcase, TWICE’s maknae flew to Korea and became a trainee, and eventually, a member of JYPE’s new girl group in 2015.
But even after seven years, Tzuyu is still close to her old dance teacher from Tainan who prepared her for that showcase. He has often been spotted at TWICE’s concerts and other official events over the years.
Today (Nov. 6), he uploaded a photo with MaleficenTzu from TWICE’s Halloween fan meeting that took place on October 20.
A part of the caption reads:
We no longer have a teacher-student relationship – it grew into a friendship. It feels great and I’m happy that we’ve kept in touch for seven years now.
Previously, he also shared a photo with Tzuyu from “Yes or Yes” showcase with a cute caption:
I saw you performing on stage and I cried again. I’m not allergic, my eyes are [red] like that because I cried so much. How is it possible to cry so much?
I was really touched when I saw how much you’ve improved.
On June 15, 2018, a day after Tzuyu’s nineteenth birthday, he also uploaded a photo of them and wished her all the best.
ONCE, how cute is their friendship?
For all the new ONCEs out there, we’ve also added the 2012 video of Tzuyu dancing back in Taiwan.
