Since K-Pop idols are celebrities, it can be easy to forget that they’re also real people who, like their own fans, have idols of their own that they admire.
This leads to some adorable interactions where idols interact with some of their favorite celebrities, whether on variety shows or at award shows. Fans always love seeing their idols interact with someone they admire, like when ITZY‘s Yeji nervously tried to talk to Chungha.
Or when BTS‘s Jungkook almost ended up standing next to IU, before quickly turning around and standing in between his members instead.
Now NCT DREAM fans can’t get enough of Jisung‘s adorable interactions with Girls’ Generation‘s Taeyeon at the 2022 Genie Music Awards.
Jisung has never hidden his admiration for Taeyeon, often referencing her songs as some of his favorites. And Chenle once exposed him for having cried while listening to Taeyeon’s “Secret.”

So fans were excited when it looked like Jisung would get to sit directly next to Taeyeon at the 2022 Genie Music Awards.
Before he panicked and let Haechan sit next to her instead.
Fans couldn’t get over how cute Jisung’s all too relatable panic was.
