As K-Pop fans we’ve come to expect the unexpected. Regardless of how hard we try, some things just make no sense. Here are six moments in K-Pop that feel like a fever dream according to netizens.
1. Red Velvet performing in North Korea
In 2018 Red Velvet visited North Korea to perform at the “Spring is Coming” concert in Pyongyang. They are one only a small number of idol groups to ever perform in North Korea, and netizens still can’t believe it happened.
2. The beef between Taeyeon and Wiz Khalifa
Back in 2016, Taeyeon and Wiz Khalfia were meant to perform together at the Mnet Asian Music Awards, but it never happened. After having public beef about the situation, it was cleared as a misunderstanding.
The fact that Teyeon backed out of our performance caught me off guard too but never accept rejection as failure.
