While most Korean celebrities spend most of their time in Seoul, many of them aren’t from the metropolitan area, and often spend time in their hometowns.
While fans cheer for idols that they respect and admire, often times idols and actors from their hometowns hold an extra special place in their hearts, as they bring pride to their town or village. A recent post on Pann asked netizens whether there were celebrities who were originally from or are currently living in their villages.
The light-hearted post has gained a lot of attention, and many netizens replied back and shared their pride for the celebrity neighbors. A translation of the post and all the photos can be found below:
