A French K-pop fan club called Korean Connection was overjoyed to meet boy band SHINee at the SM Entertainment building in Apgujeong, Seoul, on Wednesday.
The 50-member group embarked on a self-funded trip here on April 8 and has been visiting tourist spots around the country. They gathered for the meeting on Wednesday an hour early, and danced and sang along to SHINee's music videos while they waited.
After greeting the club, the band said, "We've been very surprised by the comments left by our French fans on YouTube, and we're thrilled to meet them in person."
Meanwhile, SM Entertainment announced on the day that an all-star lineup including Girls' Generation and TVXQ will hold a concert in Paris on June 10.
"This will be the first European concert by some of the top stars of the Korean Wave, such as TVXQ, Super Junior, Girls' Generation, SHINee, and f(x), so it will attract a lot of attention from music fans there," the company said.
