The K-pop idols were joined by fellow Australian comedian Sam Hammington, who is a well-known face in Korea and is married to a Korean woman as well. Sam Hammington shared a picture with the idols on his social media, saying:

“Happy Chuseok with my Aussie mates. I kinda feel like dad and his sons though.”

In fact, the Stray Kids’ members even referred to him as their “little Australian Fella,” noting:

“I feel like he could use a buddy or two, so Felix and I, we both got to get along and get friendly [with him].”
