In Korea, Melania Trump gets upstaged by a K-pop star

In Korea, Melania Trump gets upstaged by a K-pop star”

"Girl, it's just the first lady, control yourself!" she probably told her. In a viral video, a young South Korean girl appeared unaware of the K-Pop singer standing behind her and mistook her peers' screaming and clapping as a reaction to the first lady.

First lady Melania Trump is greeted by South Korean middle school students as Choi Min-ho (right), a member of South Korean boy band Shinee, top right, watches during the 'Girls Play 2!' Initiative. However, the girls quickly become giddy with excitement when they notice Minho standing to their left.

The South Korean boy band consists of five members including Minho, Onew, Jonghyun, Key and Taemin.

Known to Moon's supporters as "Joyful Jung-sook", the 62-year-old Kim, a vocal music major in college, often sang songs in support of her husband at public events before Moon, a 64-year-old former human rights lawyer, won May's presidential election.

During a stop in South Korea on Tuesday, Trump brought her considerable star power to an event promoting the importance of sports.

The first lady was at the USA ambassador's residence in Seoul delivering a speech to encourage more female participation in sport. Trump addressed North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un directly during his speech. She later put walnuts into the persimmons before coating them with chocolate with the help of a food specialist, according to South Korea's presidential office. "Every step you take down this dark path increases the peril you will face".

Bursting into screams of excitement and applause, the girls seem to ignore Trump, who perviously earned the nickname "robotic Melania" for her rather expressionless but calm character.
