TWICE‘s Dahyun loves the members’ nicknames just as much as ONCEs do!
Mina celebrated her birthday on March 24, and the TWICE members posted photos of her on the group’s official Instagram to celebrate her birthday.
Mina also visited the birthday projects fans organized for her during her birthday celebrations.
Dahyun captioned her birthday post for Mina, “I met Mina unnie at the aquarium >_<ㅋㅋㅋ Happy birthday, unnie~~.” She also posted cute photos of her and Mina hanging out.
Once fans scrolled to the last panel of Dahyun’s Instagram post, her caption made more sense. The “Mina unnie” she met at the aquarium was a penguin! Dahyun posted a video of a penguin at the aquarium, and she could be heard saying “Mina unnie” in the background as the penguin flapped its wings.
Many ONCEs call Mina a penguin because of the way she walks and some of her mannerisms.
Fans loved knowing that Dahyun immediately thought of Mina when she saw a penguin, just like ONCEs do!
