TWICE were definitely the queens of the night at Soribada Best K-Music Awards 2019, winning three major awards: Best Artist of the Year, Popularity Award, and Music of the Year. The last award, counted as a daesang, marks the group’s third grand prize from Soribada. Overall, it is their 13th daesang, but not for long, as they are to receive the Hallyu Culture Grand Prize as early as tomorrow, August 23.
After receiving the first award (Popularity Award), the girls addressed the audience and Chaeyoung was the first one to say: “Thank you so much ONCE!”, after which she thanked all of their staff at the agency. Jeongyeon added that she felt amazing because so many ONCEs came to support them. Momo was next to give a thank-you speech in Japanese, and, lastly, Tzuyu delivered a short and sweet message to ONCE in Chinese.
However, one thing in particular caught the attention of “detective ONCEs” – the word “special”. Recently, the girls have talked about their next comeback being special three times; first when Nayeon, Jeongyeon, and Sana named their VLive from Kuala Lumpur a “Special live”, then in the same video Nayeon said “our special…” before stopping herself from saying more, and now Chaeyoung promised fans to come back with a special song during the group’s speech at SOBA.
So, is it a special concept or…maybe a hint to the name of the song? One thing is for sure – we can’t wait to hear it!
Congratulations to TWICE and ONCE! 💓
