The moment Melania Trump gets upstaged by K-pop star

Footage has emerged of the hilariously awkward moment Melania Trump was upstaged by a Korean K-pop star standing beside her.

US President Donald Trump and the First Lady are in South Korea to meet diplomats and make a series of public appearances.

But Ms Trump's appearance at a Seoul school was overshadowed by Choi Min-ho, a famous singer in South Korean group SHINee.

Ms Trump could be seen beaming at two young girls, who stood fawning in front of her, but after their attention diverted to her left, her face dropped.

She then gave a good-natured smile to Min-ho, as the young girls swarmed, leaving her sidelined.

Other video shows Ms Trump seemingly unaware the cheers of the crowd aren't entirely for her.
