TWICE is often compared to animals and characters that each member is similar to, and after performing in the costume of that animal, it became established among fans as TWICE Emoji representing each member.
However, the officially used TWICE member emojis are a little different.
In this article, we will introduce all the TWICE Emoji that represent each member, from those thought by such fans to the emojis that are officially used, together with their origins.
TWICE Emoji – Nayeon
The emoji that represents Nayeon is “Rabbit” in both the official and fan-invented emojis.
Since her debut, it has been said that she is fair-skinned, her atmosphere resembles a rabbit a lot, and she has particularly large front teeth also called rabbit teeth.
There was a time when Nayeon was thinking about orthodontics, but fans love her teeth as a charm point of Nayeon so much that her front teeth are so cute that she will leave them as it is.
It seems that the official and fan interpretations of Nayeon are the same, as they perform officially in rabbit costumes and receive rabbit headgear from fans at autograph sessions.
Since no emoji other than rabbits are used, Nayeon’s emoji is consistently only for rabbits in the past and present.

TWICE Emoji – Jeongyeon
The first emoji used to represent Jeongyeon was “Dragon”. The reason why Jeongyeon’s emoji became a dragon is that after appearing in a dinosaur costume at the fan signing event of “TT”, the pictogram representing Jeongyeon became established as a dragon among fans.
After that, Jeongyeon’s emoji changes from a dragon to a fruit “melon”. The reason why Jeongyeon’s emoji changed to melon is that Jeongyeon said she likes melon bread the most among Japanese foods.
Since Jeongyeon was known to love melon bread so much that she wants to buy up melon bread when she goes to Japan, melon pictograms have come to be used mainly among Japanese fans.
Dragon and melon emojis are the mainstream among fans, but TWICE’s official emoji is “dog”.
When the photos of all the members were posted on SNS, dog emojis were used to represent Jeongyeon, who was closed and was not shown in the photos.
It was an emoji expression that felt the bond of TWICE with a gentle message that she would always be with you even if she was not here, but fans have a strong image of Tzuyu as a dog, so they have doubts about the official emoji.
There is no official explanation as to why Jeongyeon’s emoji is a dog, but Jeongyeon also has three dogs at her parents’ house and is a dog lover who participates in volunteering as a protected dog.
Therefore, it seems likely that Jeongyeon’s official emoji is a dog because of her being a dog lover.
TWICE Emoji – Momo
In the early days, “chicks” were used by fans as pictograms to represent Momo. The reason why chicks came to be used in Momo’s emoji was that she appeared in a chick costume at the fan signing event of “TT”.
Until then, I had never been told that Momo looks like chicks, but because the costumes of chicks look so cute, chicks have come to be used as emojis to represent her.
TWICE’s official emoji for Momo is the animal “bear”.
Momo, which was said to resemble a raccoon or a raccoon dog, was nicknamed Moguri by combining the neoguri (raccoon dog) and the peach.
However, since there were no emojis that only represented the faces of raccoons and raccoon dogs, it seems that bear emojis, which were said to be similar to others, have come to be officially used.
Also, it may be related to the bear stuffed animal Bearin that Momo bought in “TWICE TV5” Singapore. Another common use is the fruit “peach,” which has the same name as the Momo.
Peach emojis are still popular among peaches and fans, so they may be more major than chick and bear emojis.
Momo herself is familiar with the fruit because it has the same name and uses goods with a peach motif. Officially, it’s a bear emoji, but I have a strong impression that peach emojis are used more often.
TWICE Emoji – Sana
The emoji that represents Sana has always been a hamster, even among TWICE officials and fans.
Sana, who was said to have a hamster-mouse face with her plump cheeks and black-eyed, round eyes, was nicknamed Hamster Sana and Sanaris from the time she made her debut.
Since they appeared in hamster costumes at the fan signing event of “TT”, both TWICE and fans have the perception that Sana resembles a hamster.
By the way, Sana is also called “Sanaris”, so sometimes fans use the “Squirrel” emoji, but since it is rarely seen, the hamster emoji is the mainstream.

TWICE Emoji – Jihyo
The emoji used by fans to represent Jihyo is “Mic”.
The reason why Jihyo’s emoji is a microphone is that Jihyo has a loud voice whether he is speaking or singing normally, and he can hear well without using a microphone, so he was nicknamed Mike, so he is a fan. Mike’s emoji is now used between.
When I introduced myself, I said “TWICE’s microphone, Jihyo”, so Jihyo’s emoji was firmly established as a microphone.
However, the officially used Jihyo emoji is “Unicorn”.
Like the other members, after participating in the “TT” fan signing event wearing a unicorn costume, the official emoji representing Jihyo has become a “unicorn”.
Jihyo didn’t have the image of a unicorn until officially using the unicorn emoji, but the big eyes, long eyelashes, and gentle and fancy atmosphere that seem to spill are similar to unicorns.
Unicorns have come to be used by fans as emojis to represent Jihyo, and both Mike and Unicorn are now popular as Jihyo emojis.
TWICE Emoji – Mina
Since its debut, the emoji that represents Mina has not changed consistently with “Penguins”, both officially and among fans of TWICE.
It is said by TWICE members and fans that it looks like a penguin, and it has the nickname “Mina Penguins”. She has a shy and lonely personality and is said to be cute because she looks like a penguin and hangs around behind the members.
She looks like a penguin, and Mina has a strong penguin element. It was said that Mina absolutely thought that she was wearing a penguin costume when she appeared in a penguin costume at the “TT” fan signing event which triggered the decision of TWICE members’ emoji.
At the time of the animal concept, Mina always wears a penguin-related costume, so even in the TWICE formula, of course, Mina uses penguin emoji. Fans are so well-established that the emoji that represents Mina can only be found in penguins.
TWICE Emoji – Dahyun
“Eagle” is often used by fans as an emoji to represent Dahyun. The origin of the eagle becoming Dahyun’s emoji comes from the “eagle dance” that triggered her attention.
Speaking of Dahyun, the image of tofu is strong from the nickname “Tub” (tofu) with clear fair skin, but because there is no tofu pictogram, the eagle pictogram is from Dahyun’s other synonym, eagle dance. It came to be used.
The emoji that represents Dahyun in TWICE official is “pig”.
TWICE Emoji – Chaeyoung
There are two emojis representing Chaeyoung; strawberry and tiger, both of which have been used from the early days of her debut to the present.
The reason why “strawberry” became an emoji representing Chaeyoung was that she loved strawberries so much that she was called “strawberry princess” by her parents, and she was called “strawberry princess” by members and fans. As a result, strawberries have come to be used naturally as pictograms.
Another popular emoji of Chaeyoung, “tiger”, is also used in the TWICE formula.
Chaeyoung has a flashy face and is cool, but because she is very small and has a cute charm like a baby, she is called a “baby beast” because of her appearance.
And after wearing a tiger costume at the fan signing event of “TT”, tiger emojis have come to be used in addition to strawberries. She was also invited to a preview of the movie The Lion King because it resembles the childhood Simba that appears in the Disney movie The Lion King.
Both strawberries and tigers look good in Chaeyoung’s image, so both are used, but now the emoji of “tiger” is becoming established.
TWICE Emoji – Tzuyu
“Dog” is used by fans as an emoji to represent Tzuyu.
They even named the stuffed dog Kominjun and cherished it, went to a protected dog facility as a volunteer, welcomed two protected dogs and named them Kaya and Butter, and loved them more than any other TWICE member.
Tzuyu is a dog lover was well known not only to other TWICE members but also to fans, so it was natural that dogs were used in the pictograms that represent Tzuyu.
However, the Tzuyu emoji used in TWICE is not “dog”. Officially, Tzuyu is represented by the “deer” pictogram.
The dog emoji was already used as a Jeongyeon emoji, so it seems that the “deer” emoji has come to be used. However, dog emojis were well established among fans, so when it became clear that Tzuyu’s emoji was a deer, the majority of the responses were “Why deer? Tzuyu is a dog?”
The reason why Tzuyu’s emoji became deer is probably that the deer face is said to be a symbol of beauty in Korea.
Tzuyu, who is in charge of visuals at TWICE, is tall, has a long neck, has a small face and looks gentle in her eyes, and has a deer-like atmosphere.
For this reason, it’s safe to say that TWICE officially uses “deer” as a pictogram to represent Tzuyu.
