Their latest stop on the film’s press tour is Seoul, South Korea. They recently arrived and were instantly given the idol treatment as their airport arrival was captured.

It didn’t end there, though. At both the premiere and press event, Timothée went viral for his “aegyo.” He was captured doing both finger hearts as well as face hearts, posing cutely for the cameras.

Likewise, the entire cast, including Austin Butler and Zendaya, posed in such a way for cameras on the red carpet. While these poses are common for K-Pop idols, netizens aren’t used to seeing Western stars do such “cute” or “aegyo” poses.

At the recent press conference, Zendaya’s stylist also used BTS Jungkook‘s “Standing Next to You” as audio for a video of her look. Her boyfriend, actor Tom Holland, is also ARMY.
