As Girls' Generation singer Seohyun is currently visiting North Korea for a K-pop cultural concert in Pyongyang, fans came to the star's Instagram, Sunday, to warn her to "be careful of Kim Jong-un."

"Jesus bless you, amen," wrote a fan using Instagram handle @rogermazzabruni.

"Have a safe trip," wrote @hyeduhyedu, and "Be careful of Kim Jong-un," @babyoppaggg.

Seohyun is ailing from an intervertebral disc disease but still chose to participate in the planned tour to host and perform in the concerts.

Seohyun had made a surprise collaboration with North Korea's Samjiyon art troupe when the latter was visiting Seoul during the Olympics period last month.

    Standing in front of 1,500 spectators -- including the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and his wife -- in the East Pyongyang Grand Theater, the visiting South Korean art troupe delivered a message of peace and hope for unification through musical performance.

    The Pyongyang concert was originally slated for 5:30 p.m., South Korean time, but was delayed for 80 minutes due to Kim’s sudden decision to attend the concert himself with his wife Ri Sol-ju. With it, he became the first North Korean leader to attend a concert by South Korean musicians.

    Kim arrived 10 minutes before the concert started and was greeted by the South Korean delegation including Culture Minister Do Jong-hwan and musical director Yun Sang. They shared a few words as they headed to the second floor for the concert.

    Kim shook hands with each South Korean musician and told the group that he wished for another joint concert of the Koreas in the fall in Seoul.

    “I originally wanted to watch a concert on Tuesday, but I had other appointments so I came today,” Kim was quoted as saying by a high-ranking government official.

    The concerts are a part of the Koreas' effort to ease tension in the peninsula. Seoul and Pyongyang are set to hold a summit on April 27, followed by the North’s talks with US on denuclearization before the end of May.
