An exercise instructor in Myanmar has gained global fame after her dancing video went viral on social media when the military coup was taking place in her country. Exercise instructor, Khing Hnin Wai, was filming her dancing video in front of country’s parliament in national capital, Naypyidaw, but it seems that she was not even aware about the dangerous development that was happening just behind her.
In a viral video, it can be seen a Yoga instructor is deeply immersed in her dance and a group of SUVs are moving behind her after overthrowing the elected government.
It seems that probably she was not hearing the military convoy’s siren due to loud music, and was continuing in her dance.
Soon after the video went viral on social media, Khing, who had been filming her exercise in front of the assembly over the past several months, took to Facebook clarifying it was a real video.
She revealed that she was filming it for the aerobic dance competition- that has now been unforgettable for her.
