๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿ’ฅ”OMG, Not a Drill! Oh Wait, Yeah, It Is” โ€“ A Wild Wednesday Wake-Up Call in Seoul๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท

TL;DR: A regular Wednesday morning in Seoul suddenly turns into a scene from an apocalyptic movie, with emergency sirens blasting and phones buzzing with evacuation alerts. The catch? It was a false alarm. ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿ˜ฑ A rocket was allegedly fired by North Korea, causing massive panic, only for the home ministry to sheepishly admit to a communication goof-up. ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿš€

Imagine this, folks – you’re just snuggled up in your bed, dreaming about your crush, or maybe about finally mastering that BTS dance routine, when all hell breaks loose.
