Omona, what or where was the most unexpected moment/place you encountered Kpop?

Shinee's Lucifer on "Lucifer". :)) I gasped out loud and scared my ex who was just chillin' and paying attention to the show.
This seemed random tho and unnecessary.

the most unexpected moment for me was when i was getting my groceries all stressed out because it was almost closing time and then hearing two white teenagers arguing about who's the hottest bts member while waiting in line for the cashier. I've only once or twice overheard people talking about kpop before and it's always a shock.

Yeah i also see people wearing bts merch from time to time just walking down the street and ive never seen that before for other kpop groups. Bts isnt mainstream but theyre definitely one of the most popular if not the most popular kpop group in the states

Yeah, i've overheard people talk about BTS and GD. There was also one time where a shop clerk tried to make a collegue check out kpop and recommended Seventeen haha.

How much did they pay them or is there a kpop stan in the writer’s room? Show yourself lol

While cycling to work I passed a middle aged man with a kpop backpack. Which he probably borrowed from his daughter, but it was still funny.

Lol, the image is hilarious

a few years back when BTS was still fairly unknown, i passed a middle-aged woman waiting for the bus wearing a BTS shirt lol it was jarring cause it's something i'd never thought i'd see back then

Was it a subtle BTS shirt or ...one with their faces?
kcaomei 2nd-Mar-2019 04:32 pm (UTC)

I work with teenagers so I see a lot of K-Pop fans these days, mostly BTS fans but some branch out into K-Pop overall. I walked down the street the other day and suddenly heard someone listening to Fake Love on their phone, turned around, was some middle aged dude. I was pretty shocked lol.

I was touring a museum in China and a white haired old lady’s cellphone rang really loudly - the ringtone: Super Junior’s Sorry Sorry XD. This was many years ago, at the height of their popularity.

I also saw small graffiti on a brick on the Great Wall of China with the letters “TVXQ” which is ugh so disrespectful to a cultural monument.

Nowadays its so cool to see how mainstream K-pop has become.

I live in Dubai and the local Zoom (which is a 24x7 grocery store) near my workplace keeps playing BlackPink and other K-pop groups. Also I keep seeing kids and people in BTS march in malls. It's really nice.
