“Delusional GIFs” are the new viral trend with Korean K-Pop fans – and they’re super adorable!
“Delusional GIFs” are when Korean netizens take reaction GIFs of their biases and make up stories or situations that the reaction could fit in in everyday life.
“You’re taking the KTX and there’s this unnie who took your place by accident. You were going in to tell her she’s sitting at the wrong place… Never mind, she’s too pretty.”
They’re trending as the perfect insomnia remedy, with fans saying they’re the best when you can’t sleep at night.
“You guys are in a secret relationship at work, but the newbie keeps bothering you so your boyfriend finds it hard to concentrate.”
Fans mostly create fictional situations where the idol or actor in the GIF is their boyfriend or girlfriend, hence the name “delusional”.
“He told you that he was going to study with you for your exam until late
but he keeps dozing off every 10 minutes.”
But whether they’re unrealistic or not, they’re fun and way too cute for words.
“Taeyeon, you’re drunk, let’s go.”
