  • Trump took notice and laughed at her reaction.

A South Korean middle school student standing next to first lady Melania Trump had an explosive reaction after seeing Korean pop-star and actor Choi Minho at a sports event during President Donald Trump’s visit to the country Tuesday.

Unbeknownst to the student who was talking with Melania, standing behind her was Korean heart-throb Choi, who appeared in several Korean dramas and movies. Prior to his acting career, Choi was a member of Shinee, a wildly popular Korean musical group.

After noticing a fellow student react to the celebrity behind her, the student next to Melania turned back and appeared to scream after seeing Choi.

Melania, who noticed the reaction, smiled and gestured at Choi.

Melania attended the government-sponsored event, which encouraged female participation in sports and promoted the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, according to the Associated Press.
