French President Francois Hollande got the star treatment today in Seoul as he met K-Pop boy group Block B at a special tech start up event.

The French president got to meet the Korean idols at D.CAMP, which is one of the largest organisations which was established to support start-up technology companies in South Korea.

The visit to Korea by President Hollande is the first visit by a French head of state in 15 years.

Amongst countries in Europe, France is the second biggest investor in IT in Korea. This visit by President Hollande aims to strengthen the economic ties to the technology start up community.

Could the meeting of the two powers be discussing more K-Pop concerts in France?
