They understood the assignment.

Whether during live broadcasts, events, or on Weverse, fans often ask K-Pop idols to share TMIs. But a “TMI” has a different meaning in Korea.

In English, “TMI” is an abbreviation for “too much information,” so people share deeply personal and even embarrassing or disgusting stories. On the other hand, in Korean, “TMI” is basically used to mean irrelevant or a random incident of one’s day. So, international fans are often confused about why idols’ TMIs are so simple, considering the phrase’s real meaning.
