Super Junior's Donghae shares a chance meeting selfie with Wanna One's Ong Seong Wu

Super Junior's Donghae took to his personal Instagram to reveal a recent selfie he took after running into a surprise idol friend.

On January 13, he uploaded a picture of him sitting next to Wanna One's Ong Seong Wu, both staring into the camera while making v-signs with their hands.


"It's the Lord's Day. Have a winning Lord's Day! I love you," he wrote to his followers, causing many to conclude that the two, both known for being devout Christians, had run into each other while attending a Sunday church service.

Check out Donghae's Instagram post below!

No dissing on any religion but can anyone educate me on why a lot of S.K. people are christians or catholic. I know that Buddhism is also a big religion in S.K. but why is it that so much idols and actors are christians or catholic? I know it might have to do with the US military stationed in S.K. but is that the only reason? They keep mentioning going to church but they don't have the same vibe as christians or Catholics in the US or Canada. Good thing that when idols or actors do thank you speech, they don't say "Thank you God for giving me this award" like hollywood celebs. It has always not sat well with me when they say that. Kcelebs say thanks to actual real people that contributed to their achievement.

No youre wrong. actually a lot of idols and actors who are devout christians thank God in the beginning or ending of their award winning speech.

it's probably because christian koreans are very active in their ministry that's why they reach a lot of people

It tends to be the religion of the affluent and or educated classes now in SK but the long and short of it is missionaries, especially at the start of the 1900s and later due to the presence of American soldiers (circumcision also became widely practices as a result). When you travel around Asia you'll see them everywhere.

South Korea has the largest Christian population in all of Asia, with a history that can be traced back to the 18th century. Don't think it has anything to do with having a U.S. military based in the country, though. After all, you don't see countries like Japan or Iraq having a large Christian population despite having a large number of US military personnel stationed there.

Respectfully, Christianity goes back to the 1600s in SK but didn't actually take off until the 1900s (before which it was actively discouraged and forbidden and was still actively discouraged by the Japanese during their occupation of Korea) and that is due to missionaries and US soldiers. The relationship America has with SK is different to that of America and Japan or America and Iraq and so the influence of America on SK is different to that of its neighbouring countries. Also, Iraq isn't a good example because Christianity was already present in Iraq as it is literally a Middle Eastern religion in its origin (nor have the Americans been around as long).
