Donald Trump and his wife Melania were visiting South Korea on Tuesday and the First Lady was available for a photo op with some middle schoolers. But it kinda seems like someone double booked the step-and-repeat.
Unfortunately -- nothing beats the popularity of K-Pop. It has taken the world by storm. The K-Pop band BTS debuted in 2013 and have been a huge hit since their first performance of "No More Dream" that people went wild for in Korean. Since then they've slowly taken over the globe becoming huge throughout Asia and into Europe. Now the boy band has made it's way to the United States.
Not to say there isn't fans of the group here, but it was much less common to find someone who loved the group as much as you did. It looks like BTS is finally going mainstream, so ff you're a longtime BTS fan, your hipster moment has finally arrived. You've painstakingly supported the Korean band the last few years, fought the criticisms from your friends who had no idea who the Kpop titans really were. Now they're taking on even the leaders of the Free World in popularity.
In this hilarious clip posted by Twitter user @siechng, you can see Melania momentarily greet a wildly enthusiastic kid, only to realize seconds later than K-Pop star Choi Min-ho is standing right behind her:
Losing your mind over a pop star and ignoring Melania Trump is apparently a highly relatable instinct. We can't say we blame them too much cause its much more exciting to meet your idol that former a model from the 90s. Just sayin'.
It's almost enough to make you want to show up to a Trump event, though it seems like all the cool ones have very few Americans at them.
