There's one question that's passed down from one SM Entertainment male idol after another throughout the generations - a "dangerous" question, they say.
Shinhwa's Dongwan, known for his straightforwardness with his fans, may or may not have started the tradition.

Caption 2: "Watch out or you'll get fired."
(SHINee's Taemin, also during an audience recording)
Caption 1: "Are you guys not going to work? What about school?"
Caption 2: "I'm curious what jobs or careers you have..."
(EXO's Sehun, not-so-coincidentally during an audience recording)
Caption 1: "I have something I want to ask..."
Caption 2: "Those of you here who came to recordings yesterday and the day before."
Caption 3: "What did you do about school or work to come here?"
(Fan account during NCT Dream's audience recording on September 5)
"At the end, Jisung said, 'I have something I want to ask... What did you do about school and work before coming here?' Kekekeke and Mark said, 'You shouldn't be asking things like that.' Kekekekeke!"
Netizens couldn't contains their laughter and commented, "I take off work and get to 'work'!", "I skip school!", "Yes, don't ask us things like that kekekeke", "I'm honestly curious myself how those people do it!", "Use up all my vacation days, of course", "Empty my schedules months in advance!", "Mark KNOWS", "What's school when I get to see NCT Dream", and more!
Are you guilty of skipping school or work for your K-Pop idols?
