BTS-Loving 12-Year-Old Gets Pranked By Her Older Brother Who Doesn’t Know Much About K-Pop Bands And Threw Her A Kim Jong-Un-Themed Birthday Party

In case you didn’t know yet, K-pop is one of the hottest things trending among young people. Previously limited only to South Korea, K-pop has spread internationally and continues to gain more and more fans around the globe. With its catchy and trendy tunes, teenagers find themselves obsessing over K-pop bands such as Blackpink and BTS.

12-year-old Emanuela, who lives in Brazil, is no exception. The young girl is a huge fan of K-pop, so when her birthday came around, she wanted to have a K-pop-themed birthday bash. Unfortunately, the event was organized by her brother, whose knowledge of the genre is very limited, to say the least.

Emanuela probably didn’t think much when leaving her big brother in charge of her birthday party, and those of us who have older brothers know how they can be, right?

“Today is my sister’s birthday, she’s a K-pop fan. I was in charge of the decorations. Since I don’t know any K-pop bands, I decorated it with the most famous Korean I know. She loved it,” Vitor de Souza, brother of Emanuela, wrote on Facebook upon sharing the photos from the birthday party. Over 38k people so far have liked Vitor’s post.

The 12th birthday will be probably one of those which Emanuela won’t forget. The birthday bash involved the notorious North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un plastered all over the room, while the cake was decorated with tiny dictators, as well. As ironic as it may sound, K-pop is banned in North Korea.

From looking at the photos shared by Vitor, you can observe the smug face of the older brother and the slight disappointment on Emanuela’s face. Life isn’t covered in roses when you have an older brother.

But don’t feel bad for the girl—she got her K-pop birthday party after all

Because you don't find it funny, you hate K-pop, or hate North Korea?

Well said. And this was trolling, not a "genuine mistake". I mean, if you have access to the Internet, it doesn't take long to Google the keyword "K-pop" and go with the first group name that pops up. If you really care about someone, you do your research to surprise them, that's at least what I do, and what everyone I know does. The whole situation, however, make up a good political pun, I mean, "Kim Jong-eun's party".
