Xi Jinping is more than simply the head of the most populated nation on Earth. He’s also a superstar for the Chinese public, who, just like him, enjoy the occasional steamed bun. These Chinese students erupted in tears after catching a glimpse of Xi when he visited Seoul National University, a reaction more typical to that of a Korean student after catching sight of Kpop star G-Dragon. Everyone has his fangirls.
Xi arrived in South Korea yesterday to promote a new security scheme in Northeast Asia that would diminish the American influence and ties in the region, according to The New York Times.
This move has gained special political
over-analyzation as Chinese leaders normally visit North Korea first before passing by Seoul.
