Jihyo and Jungyeon talked about the struggles of their long trainee days. 


TWICE's trip to Vietnam continued to air on the October 24 episode of JTBC's 'Around the World Travel Package'. While enjoying the trip, MC Kim Sung Joo asked Jihyo, Jungyeon, and Chaeyoung who they would like to travel with.


Jihyo answered, "I didn't have many chances to travel with my family because I was a trainee for a long time." Chaeyoung added, "I wasn't able to go to school field trips or retreats either."


Jihyo, who was a trainee under JYP Entertainment for nearly 10 years, stated, "It's most unfortunate how I don't have many memories in school. I went straight to the agency after school so I was jealous of others going out to eat tteokbokki (spicy rice cakes) and going to noraebang (karaoke) with friends."

When asked if she ever thought about giving up, Jihyo answered, "I almost did right before our debut. I was about to give up when the team before TWICE fell apart." 


Jungyeon, who also trained for 7 years under JYP, revealed, "I've also thought about quitting. I worked part-time at a bakery when I was on break and it fit me so well. I even thought about opening a bakery and settling down. My parents had a difficult time during my trainee days..."
