They even have rooms full of their idols’ merch!

K-Pop idols are loved by so many fans from all over the world, it’s understandable some of them happen to be parents of other idols. While it may seem like a once-off coincidence, there are actually a lot of idols whose parents are fans of their fellow idols, sometimes even members of the same group!
