The gap between generations is clear!
Minho from SHINee recently went viral for a funny moment he had during a video call with one of the most famous members of the girl group fourth-gen!
SHINee is without a doubt one of the most famous K-Pop acts. This year was the group’s fifteenth anniversary, which is a big accomplishment that only a few groups have ever reached.
K-Pop has changed since they first came out, and so have the ways fans choose to connect with idols. Fan calls didn’t exist when SHINee first came out, and they didn’t exist for most of their career.
When COVID-19 lockdowns started, K-Pop companies looked for ways for stars to interact with fans. This led to the idea of fan calls, which involve fans holding signs over video chatting platforms.
Fans often have their favorite acts do challenges from TikTok during the calls, which can lead to some pretty cute moments.
SHINee just came back with a new album called “Hard,” and they did a few video calls to promote it.
A fan was talking to Minho when she tried to get him to do a dare by showing him a video of IVE‘s Jang Wonyoung doing it.
The video of Wonyoung doing the challenges shows the star holding her hands to her head like dog ears while talking to aegyo.
Minho seems sure at first that he can finish the challenge…
…but when he sees Wonyoung do her aegyo in a quick, well-timed way, his face changes into one of confusion.
Even after the fan showed him the video again, he didn’t change his face at all. Funny enough, Minho doesn’t even try to do the task at first. Instead, he sits back and looks like he’s given up.
But Minho does finish the task, giving the monologue his own unique twist.
The video of the call has been seen more than 2.7 million times, and fans laugh at Minho‘s responses.
