One of South Korea's most popular exports is its music - K-pop has garnered worldwide obsession with its pretty boy and girl-bands - so it's no wonder that Korean Air has employed their services to dazzle their latest safety video.

They enlisted the help of K-pop royalty SuperM and BoA to take the audience on a futuristic flight, complete with sparkly planes, space shootouts and, of course, smooth dancing and singing. It almost looks like a glossier version of Backstreet Boys' sci-fi Larger than Life music video, although the boys look a little sleeker.

"We’re proud to launch our new safety video, the first project presented by Korean Air and SuperM! Have you ever wondered what Korean Air’s airplane might look like in the future? Well, now you can take a ride with SuperM on Korean Air’s airplane of the future," says the airline in the video description.

According to Billboard, the profits of the song will be donated to Global Citizen - a festival series that raises money to fight extreme poverty and played in South Africa in December last year.

Korean Air doesn't have any flights to Africa, but connects to most other parts in the world, if you feel like taking a trip to see your favourite K-Pop stars.
