No matter what time of day idols go to the airport, they’re not always as fully awake as you’d think. Because of their busy schedules, they’re focused on getting some much-needed sleep on the flight rather than passing through the airport itself.
During one of those times where he wasn’t fully himself, EXO‘s Baekhyun had a funny moment with the airport staff that not only made him face-palm but will make you do the same.
When it was his turn to reach the counter and hand the staff his boarding pass and passport, he’d forgotten where he’d put them. Reaching his right hand into the bag he was holding, Baekhyun began to look through it to find the items.
Baekhyun just couldn’t seem to find them. He was in luck, though. One of the airport staff members did. He’d been holding the two items, the boarding pass tucked into his passport, in his left hand.
The staff member pointed to them, signaling they’d been found. Baekhyun was completely unaware, even though he was looking right down at it. Instead, he reached his hand even further into the bag to look for them.
Taking matters into their own hands, another staff member had to get Baekhyun’s attention to stop his search. They simply reached out and grabbed onto the items Baekhyun had been holding in his hand the entire time.
As soon as they’d taken them from him, Baekhyun realized all the searching he’d done had been for nothing. Everything he’d been looking for had been right in front of his face the whole time, in his very own hand. Baekhyun couldn’t help but smile as he face-palmed.
Everyone has moments where they’re so unaware of what’s happening that they’ve missed what’s right in front of them, especially when they’re tired or have a lot on their minds. Baekhyun is just like everyone else, maybe a bit funnier since it was all caught in photos.
