    In November 2017, an awkward video featuring a k-pop idol stealing the show from Melania Trump went viral.

    On November 7, 2017 Melania Trump was on an official visit to Seoul with her husband. Independent of Donald Trump, the US First Lady had her own agenda in the South Korean capital. She participated in an event called "Girls Play 2!" which was aimed at promoting the importance of sports. The event took place in one of the city's middle schools. However, the local girls' excitement was directed at someone other than Mrs. Trump. After teenagers in school uniform noticed K-pop megastar Choi Min-ho, a member of the super popular boy band SHINee, by her side, they started to scream and clap as Melania Trump watched them with a wide smile.
