Kim Jong Dae aka Chen of the famed K-Pop group EXO had his first baby today and thanks to the time difference, the news about this has been three of the top five twitter trends in the United States since last night.
For the uninitiated, K-Pop had been having wider acceptance and appeal in the United States and EXO’s success has been a case in point with its 2018 release Don’t Mess Up My Tempotopping the charts worldwide.
If the Bush and Obama era of US Presidency kept the Americans glued to what’s happening in the Middle East, the current POTUS Donald Trump ensured his countrymen were always aware of what has been happening in the Korean Peninsula.
Ever since Trump took a personal interest in brokering a Nuclear peace deal with North Korea, Americans have had a competition to their love for Kardashians with the growth of K-Pop. Thanks to Trump, the hysterical mainstream media have done their due diligence in trumpeting every misstep of the handling of the North-South Korea stand-off.
Neither K-Pop nor EXO might not like Trump the POTUS however they need to give their due credits to Trump the businessmen for keeping the Americans entertained to Korea in his unique way.
