The idea of having superstitions or good-luck charms is something that every country has. Whether it’s a special piece of clothing or an item passed down generations, it is common for people to have things that have a certain meaning or bring good luck.
Well, it seems like a new talisman has become popular in the world of K-Pop, and it’s all because of TWICE‘s Nayeon.
The TWICE member became the first idol from the group to make her solo debut and the track “POP!” has rightly taken over the internet for its pure K-Pop vibes that many haven’t heard for a while.
Although it’s talent and hard work that gained Nayeon her success, it seems like other idols and netizens are using her for their own good luck for a special reason!
On July 4, NMIXX‘s Sullyoon surprised fans with a live broadcast. At one point, Sullyoon showed fans her phone and netizens noticed that her background was of TWICE’s Tzuyu. Although it might not have been clear to many netizens, fans of TWICE knew straight away that the image was from a recent selfie of Nayeon.
During the broadcast, Sullyoon confirmed it was Nayeon and shared that it was all because she heard it was good luck to have the idol as your wallpaper.
She isn’t alone as BTOB‘s Minhyuk shared that one of the staff on his radio show had Nayeon as a background…

According to Nayeon’s manager, it quickly became a talisman that brings money and wealth to whoever owns the phone. It isn’t just Nayeon’s manager. Apparently, all the members, TWICE staff, and those around the group also have Nayeon as their background.
Although Nayeon’s manager wanted a new one because it didn’t work, those staff in the room even revealed that they did see money come in.
It seems like after hearing the news, everyone wanted some of Nayeon’s luck, especially after the idol revealed that fellow TWICE member Jeongyeon also has Nayeon has her lock screen.
