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.

Another added: "Not really surprised that Melania got ignored for Choi Minho I mean any sensible person would've done the same thing."

Melania Trump, whose pressure was a factor in getting her husband, U.S. President Donald Trump, to reverse his policy of separating immigrant children from parents, on Thursday visited a border detention facility where some of those children were being held. The first lady left the White House quietly in the morning and flew to Texas for the visit, a day after Trump signed an executive order keeping families who illegally cross the U.S. border with Mexico together. The trip to Texas was the most high-profile public appearance Mrs. Trump had made since undergoing a surgical procedure for a benign kidney condition on May 14.
