On November 26, eight of TWICE‘s nine members attended the 2019 Asia Artist Awards in Vietnam.
Mina couldn’t be there to accept “Best Social Artist” and “Singer of the Year” (Daesang) with her members, but they wanted everyone to know that she’s with them in spirit.
During the acceptance speech for “Best Social Artist”, leader Jihyo said that they were able to receive the award because of the strength Mina and ONCE give to them.
Jihyo: Although she can't be with us today, I think we’re able to receive this award because of Mina, who always gives us strength, and ONCE. Thank you for always loving us so generously. I want to make many good memories with Mina and ONCE in the future.pic.twitter.com/mD0UqxT7Dz

Chayoung also mentioned Mina during TWICE’s acceptance speech for “Singer of the Year”. She said that TWICE attended the AAAs not as eight members, but as nine members in their hearts.
CY: First thank you for the award of Singer of the Award. Though Mina unnie couldn't be with us here today, but in our heart we're here as nine. As TWICE, we will give more strength as well as receiving them through songs. I hope we'll always be like thatpic.twitter.com/3h935jnsh0
