Awkward moment: Melania Trump ignored by South Korean girls after pop star appears next to her

A video of the first lady greeting South Korean girls who burst into screams after spotting a member of a Korean pop boy band went viral on social media Tuesday.

The short clip showed Melania Trump smiling at a group of teenagers at a government-sponsored event where she gave a speech encouraging female participation in sports and promoted the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, the Associated Press reported.

But when the girls noticed K-pop star and actor Choi Minho standing next to Trump, they began to scream and clap.

Trump, who noticed the reaction, watched the girls with a wide smile and gestured at Choi.

Many Twitter users praised Trump's long-lasting smile.

"I honestly never saw Melania smiling so genuinely," one person wrote, while another tweeted: "This is honestly the first time I've seen Melania smiling."

But others on social media thought the girls were ignoring the first lady.
