The reason why EXO’s Sehun broke out in a cold sweat before meeting President Trump
The band had been invited to meet the US President when he was in South Korea in June, but Sehun was nervous because of this little problem.
K-pop singer Sehun of EXO has revealed that he had broken out in a cold sweat at the thought of meeting US President Donald Trump.
The popular band had been invited to meet President Trump when he was in South Korea in June. Sehun revealed during his appearance on Korean talk show Radio Star on Wednesday (Dec 4) that the meeting took place because Trump's granddaughter (Ivanka Trump’s daughter) is a huge fan.
Sehun then explained the reason behind his physiological reaction to the meeting.
He said: "My pinky was broken. I was wearing a cast and was worried about shaking hands with President Trump. I was worried that if he grabbed my hand too hard, my little finger would hurt.”
He had every reason to be worried because President Trump is known for his long-drawn and vigorous handshakes, something Sehun's band mates had warned him about.
The singer added that he was worried about what he could do to protect his finger, and he was in a cold sweat thinking about it.
He even practised how to say “my finger is broken” in English.
Unfortunately, things were so chaotic at the meeting that he wasn't able to use the phrase. Luckily, though, he was able to position his finger out of the way during the handshake so it wouldn’t get hurt.
Fingers crossed he won't have to deal with such a situation in the future.
