Here’s How Cosmic Girls Fans Trolled The Internet
This is the true power of K-Pop.
Cosmic Girls‘ (also known as WSJN – Wonder, Joy, Sweet, Natural) fans won the internet in just a single tweet.
It was no marketing stint from an award-winning agency but only the power of Ujung (Friendship in Korean). And no, it needed no catchy background commercial jingle. In fact, it was only a cropped image of two Chinese girls wearing white long gowns with an English caption.
The post managed to beat the 140-character limit of Twitter. In fact, it was only 113 characters that took non K-Pop fans to a whole new “breaking” point.
The tweet says, “[BREAKING] Lesbian Chinese Billionaires, Meng Mei Qi and Wu Xuan Yi, marry. Making them the richest couple alive.”

The cropped photo was taken at the Beijing International Film Fest, which were uploaded on Xuan Yi’s Weibo page and made into an inside joke among K-Pop fans and Ujungs that can totally relate to the pairing.
INTERNET IS TRIGGERED
Unfortunately for some readers, “[BREAKING]” is a trigger word for a legitimate news story on social media.
Adding the word “Lesbians” at a time, when LGBT issues and causes are being campaigned for equality rights. And who would not jump into the conversation when you see the words “billionaire” and “richest couple alive?” on a post?
Of course, you’ll be curious as to how these people have amassed such money, right?
Who wouldn’t mistake these two to be billionaires posing for wedding photos? Look at these other four individual photos which seem to be out of a pre-nuptial or wedding day photobook:
When Twitter users ask for a source, they send the link to Cosmic Girls’ music video for 너에게 닿기를 (I Wish), plotting it to be the wedding video of the couple.
These added views to the video released in January. As of writing, the music video has over 2.5 million views and counting.
Cosmic Girls is under Starship Entertainment, who also manages Korean groups Boyfriend, Monsta X and Sistar among others. Cosmic Girls is comprised of thirteen members namely: Seola, Xuan Yi, Bona, Exy, Soobin, Luda, Dawon, Eunseo,Cheng Xiao, Mei Qi, Yeoreum, Dayoung and Yeonjung.
