Being on camera is part of the K-Pop star lifestyle, and idols don’t mind being in the spotlight…most of the time. There are certain situations, however, when idols try to avoid being filmed in order to let their fellow stars shine. Sometimes these attempts are successful. Other times, not so much!
1. When MOMOLAND’s JooE ducked at the speed of light
This hilarious moment happened at the 2018 MBCPLUS X Genie Music Awards when Stray Kids won the award for “Best New Male Artist”. JooE stood up then quickly sat back down when she realized she was blocking the very people she was applauding!
2. This awkward penguin shuffle
At the 53rd Baeksang Art Awards, cameras captured a funny moment between Girls’ Generation‘s Yoona, EXO‘s D.O and actor Park Bo Gum during Kim Yoo Jung‘s acceptance speech.
When Yoona realized they could all be seen in the background, she asked the others to move over. All four stars awkwardly shuffled out of the shot like penguins, to give the winner her moment.
3. When Chungha and Sunmi (nearly) shrank out of sight
On January 27, ASTRO‘s Cha Eun Woo and PRISTIN‘s Xiyeon stepped down as MCs of MBC‘s Music Core. To avoid attracting attention during Xiyeon’s farewell speech, Chungha and Sunmi slowly shrank away…
…then popped back up to applaud.
They did the same thing for Cha Eun Woo, and this time other idols joined in!
4. When VIXX’s Ravi showed his manners in the most dramatic way
Ravi was casually waving to the audience while walking the stage until he realized he was about to interrupt Roy Kim‘s acceptance speech. Ravi ran away faster than you can say, “congrats!”
5. When this friendship got in a cameraman’s way
At this year’s Asian Artist Awards, fan cams captured BTS‘s Jungkook and GOT7‘s BamBam hugging it out and chatting.
These friends got so caught up in their conversation that BamBam almost delayed BTS’s group bow. He scooted out of the way in time, but nearly mowed down a cameraman in the process.
6. When Kang Daniel swerved to the side
At last year’s MAMA in Korea, Kang Daniel once again proved that he is nothing if not a gentleman. He tried to swerve out of the way (while giving a double thumbs up!) to give LOONA more screen time. Although he did manage to give the camera a better shot of LOONA, he couldn’t avoid it entirely!
7. When former iKON member B.I hid on these stairs
Afraid of blocking the camera，hanbin really knelt down 😭

At last year’s Melon Music Awards, fans captured B.I‘s excellent manners on camera. He politely tried to hide away from the show’s official cameras to avoid blocking other idols from view.
