If the side effects of social distancing are hitting you hard, don’t worry. You’re not alone…figuratively speaking.
Eric Nam is one of the many K-Pop idols holed up at home to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but he’s finding plenty of ways to amuse himself.
For starters, Eric Nam gave out his real phone number on Twitter…

…and received some hilarious texts from fans.

I’ve never been accused of being a bot so much in my entire life.

(For those of you who weren’t alive to play with Bop Its in 1996, here’s what they look like.)
On April Fool’s Day, Eric Nam reached peak quarantine comedy when he referenced Wilson, Tom Hank‘s sole companion from the movie Castaway.
Personally, we prefer Wilma to Wilson. Ironically, she is travel size!
