J.Y. Park made the decision to add Momo to Asia’s #1 girl group TWICE, and it might have been the best move he’s ever made.
Fans who watched TWICE‘s survival show SIXTEEN know that Momo was originally eliminated in episode six.

J.Y. Park even expressed at the time that she didn’t deserve to be eliminated for her performance.
The moment following her elimination is still one of the most heartbreaking moments in television history.
And fellow Japanese members Sana and Mina took it the hardest of all.
But Momo didn’t just sit around and sulk! She jumped right into things by releasing a dance cover with fellow eliminated contestants Eunsuh and Chaeyeon.
And by the end of SIXTEEN, J.Y. Park made it clear that TWICE would not be complete without Momo as a member.
According to J.Y. Park, all the trainers and the entire artists and repertoire team unanimously chose Momo as the most hard-working and committed member on the show.
And bringing Momo back as a member of TWICE has really paid off!
Since debuting, Momo has quickly asserted herself as one of the best dancers in the industry.
