According to a report from Soompi, Momo shared her lengthy letter on the official page of TWICE.
Momo wrote, “There’s a lot I want to tell ONCE, so I don’t know if this letter will be well-organized. But I wanted to write a letter, so here I am writing it. It’s already my fifth time welcoming the new year with ONCE! The time we’ve spent together feels very long, but it also feels short. Either way, I’m reminded [of] a lot of the memories I made with ONCE.”
Momo shared that she has made different memories with ONCE each year. She wrote, “So in 2020, I want to give back the abundant happiness and memories I received from ONCE in 2019, and my goal was to create more joyful memories for ONCE and communicate it a lot.”
The singer talked about finding joy in communicating with fans and why she loves doing it. She shared: “Of course, I love dancing and singing. But I also have lots of fun communicating with ONCE, and every single thing like that makes me happy. So after work, on my way home, I think, ‘Oh, I want to talk to ONCE,’ and have so many V Live broadcasts that our managers get tired. Editing and uploading videos [aren’t] something I do because someone tells me to. I’m only doing it with the thought that ONCE would like it. And filming those videos isn’t work, I went out to have fun during my break, and it was just so nice. That’s what makes me do those things.”
Momo said that communicating with fans doesn’t feel like work for TWICE. She said, “We really want to be close to ONCE, and that’s what I really like. When I see ONCE being happy because of us, that makes me happy.” She continued, “I’m really, really thankful to ONCE for communicating with me and giving me so much strength. ONCE are always giving us support, and we want to give you that much support in return.”
She also wished TWICE’s fans well: “Everyone will have personal hardships, and there will be annoying or tough things that happen because of us, but I hope that ONCE will experience so many more happy things than tough things.”
Momo’s heartfelt letter comes after news broke out that she began dating Super Junior's Heechul. The K-pop singer also made headlines recently when she fell during TWICE’s performance of “Fancy” during the 34th Golden Disc Awards.
