Previously, EXO‘s Baekhyun made headlines when he adorably interacted with a fan known as Kong-ddeok. He had cutely asked her for her work schedule as a part timer at a burger shop in Bucheon city, and promised to visit her someday. How did this all start?
Baekhyun had tweeted out to ask EXO-Ls, “Are there Eris, or Eri’s parents who run F&B businesses? Location does not matter! Is there! I thought of something!!”
Eventually, after conversing with Kong-ddeok and promising to visit her, he even uploaded a screenshot that he had saved the details down in his notes app.
Kong-ddeok became so popular amongst fans for the adorable interaction that fans started buzzing about her. One fan tweeted, “it is Kong-ddeok sunbaenim’s work hours in an hour.”
A friend of Kong-ddeok’s tweeted out the following conversation where Kong-ddeok lamented that people would recognize her if they visited the shop.
- “What am I supposed to do?”
- “I’m the only part timer at work”
- “Everyone will know I’m Kong-ddeok”
Eris started to make memes out of the situation, imagining if Baekhyun went to visit.”
- “Excuse me, are you Kong-ddeok?”
- “Sorry oppa but the orders are stacking up.”
They compared her to Spongebob and her boss to Mr Krabs.
Eventually it was revealed that orders were so backed up, people who tried to order delivery had to wait for an hour.
The name of the burger shop even trended on Naver.
All this due to Baekhyun’s power! Baekhyun eventually apologized to Kong-ddeok and also asked the manager to treat her well! What a day it must have been for Kong-ddeok and the EXO-L community!
