‘Adele sunbaenim’ trends as she’s set to appear on a South Korean TV show
When K-Pop artists refer to their Western counterparts, they often add “sunbaenim” after saying their name as a sign of respect. “Sunbaenim” in English, means that a person is much more experienced than the one using the word, and is a way Koreans show respect to their elders or for their seniors in any kind of industry.
And in today’s case, well, K-Pop stans immediately brought the topic “Adele sunbaenim” to Twitter’s trending topics. The reason: the popular British singer was announced to appear on a show by South Korean TV Channel “MBC TV” this month.
