The next time you fly Korean Air, you may want to pay extra attention to the safety briefing — especially if you’re a K-Pop fan.

Korean Air partnered with hit K-Pop group SuperM, in partnership with SM Entertainment, the largest entertainment company in Korea.

An SM Entertainment songwriter created a song called “Let’s Go Everywhere,” which was later turned into a K-pop music video. By integrating safety rules into the music video, the safety video was created. Korean Air described the video as “unconventional, innovative and entertaining” and would capture the attention of passengers.

Korean Air will be hosting events to promote the safety video from Nov. 4 through Dec. 10. The airline encourages customers to share the video on their own channels. A model airplane with the SuperM livery will be awarded to the first 100 winners.

Many airlines have moved away from regular safety briefings in favor of memorable ones. Earlier this year, United’s Spiderman-themed safety briefing was tied to the release of the new movie. ANA’s safety briefing includes a homage to Japanese culture by including Kabuki, a form of traditional Japanese theater. Air New Zealand’s “Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made” went viral in 2014 after featuring a Hobbit-themed briefing that included a giant demonstrating the proper way to wear an oxygen mask.

And while low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines doesn’t have in-flight entertainment, one flight attendant back in 2018 was entertaining in his own right. Passengers on a flight from Orlando (MCO) to Colorado Springs (COS) were treated with a humorous rendition of the typically monotonous passenger safety briefing. A flight attendant started the presentation by introducing the flight attendant in the front of the plane as his wife and the one in the rear as his mistress.

He also made fun of the low-cost carrier, which charges for everything from a carry-on bag to a seat assignment to a can of soda. He added, “let’s be honest, only those of you who paid the extra $49.99 get any oxygen.”

Just make sure you’re paying attention (that means take off your noise-canceling headphones and look up from your magazine) to the safety briefing every time you fly. It may save your life in an emergency.
