K-Pop Stars Prank Their Fans for April Fool’s Day


We know it’s coming every year, yet somehow we still get fooled! This April, a few K-pop stars executed lighthearted pranks to have a laugh with their fans. BTS joined in on the fun by showing us the members’ feminine side with a fake “Bangtan Girls” layout on their official fancafe. The image (pictured above) features all seven members in drag from past reality show appearances. Below are some more of our favorite April Fool’s Day pranks!


Chanyeol of K-pop group EXO posted an old picture of himself on Instagram, with a caption that included, “I’m EXO’s Chanyeol and have debuted with the song ‘MAMA’!! Though I still have a long way to go, I’ll give my full effort to show my best side!!” Chanyeol actually debuted with EXO back in 2012, but it’s still comforting to hear that he’s committed to his work, even if it was a joke!


The members of the K-pop group TEEN TOP used April Fool’s Day as an opportunity to show off their adorable side, with Twitter profile pictures of the members as toddlers (as if we needed another reason to be obsessed with them).



This time last year, we were treated to Eric Nam interviewing himself in a hilarious parody of his famous interview with Amanda Seyfried. Also last year, Taemin fan site Taempo transformed into a tampon website. Not to be left out of the pranking for 2014, Kim Jae Joong announced his (ultimately phony) desire to be married within three years.
