K-Pop Enthusiasts Turn Into True Detectives And Help A Clueless Non-Fan Realize Her Ultimate Bias

The search began with a simple bus ride.

When M — who revealed herself to be not too big of a K-Pop fan — got on the bus like any other day, the last thing she expected was to fall in love with an absolute stranger…

M wanted to find out who this one-heck-of-a-beauty is, so she took to the internet:

He was relatively young-looking…I think he is definitely Korean. The video showed him eating something. I’m sorry I don’t have anything better to tell you. I’m looking up all sorts of boy groups, but from pictures they look similar and I can’t really tell.

And K-Pop fans from all around Korea were ready to help!

Even when M couldn’t provide any substantial clues…

… fans were dedicated to helping M identify her ultimate bias.

When M described the mystery idol to have been “eating something from a plastic container” though, this rang a bell for one ARMY.

This isn’t at [his] home, but JUST IN CASE. Lol.

And to everyone’s surprise, the ARMY was right! M became ecstatic to finally learn the name of the love of her life…

WOW! HOLY F*CK! I’m sorry for cursing but YES, IT’S THIS PERSON! It’s f*cking him! EVERYONE, THIS IS THE PERSON!!! It’s this video too!!! Who is this, PLEASE TELL ME HIS NAME!!!

— M

… and the detective K-Pop enthusiasts felt extremely proud to have helped another fangirl-in-the-making realize her true ARMYhood!
