Lisa is often praised for her beauty. In TC Candler's "100 Most Beautiful Faces of 2020," Lisa ranked at number 2, making it her highest position on TC Candler's annual list.

According to Gallup Korea's annual music polls, in 2018, Momo was named the 20th most popular idol in South Kora. This makes Momo one of the most popular foreign idols in the country. Her popularity (as well as the other Japanese members of TWICE) has been credited to improving South Korea and Japan's relationship. In 2019, Momo was selected as the 10th most popular female idol with soldiers partaking in their mandatory military service.

Momo is often praised for her gorgeous figure, as well as for her sharp and swift dance movements. Due to her dance skills, she is often nicknamed "Dance Machine" and is often described as being TWICE's best dancer.
