Today is Kim Jinhong’s 20th birthday (21st in korean age). Jinhong is a member of the korean boy group 24K (they are under Choeun Entertainment) in which he is the leader vocalist, lead dancer and visual.
Along with Hui (former member) he joined in 24K in 2015.
24K have been through such a rough path. Really, one of the K-Pop groups I admire the most if not the one.
Nearly a year ago I was so lucky to be able to see their performance live. Really, to see the proof of their hard work and effort live was amazing. They are amazing. They keep fighting and working hard for their dreams after so many obstacles, so many internal problems, such bad management and unsuccessful promotions. Their time is coming, I know it. Such talented beings can’t remain unknown for this long.
Here’s why it’s all on the management and not the talent:
January 1st, it’s BLANC7’s Jean Paul’s birthday ^^
Today is Kim Sung Hwan’s (also known as Jean Paul) birthday. Jean Paul is a member ok the korean boy group BLANC7 (they are under Jackpot Entertainment) in which he is the leader and vocal.
He is a former member of the group BTL (disbanded in 2016).
BLANC7 debuted in early 2017 with the EP Prism (name of their fandom) with Yeah as the title track. They are still a small group but they’re incredibly talented and humble so it would be wonderful if you showed them your support! You can check out their debut MV below.
Today is Jung Mimi’s 25th birthday (26th in korean age). Mimi is a member of the korean girl group Gugudan (they are under Jellyfish Entertainment) in which she’s a lead vocalist. They debuted on June 28th 2016 with the album Act. 1 The Little Mermaid and the title track Wonderland, below:
Just like the other members of Gugudan, Mimi was attributed a number – #7, and a symbol – Arrow.
Mimi was once a traine under FNC Entertainment (company housing groups like AOA, CNBlue and SF9). Back then did some appearences in tvN’s variety show Cheongdamdong III, KBS’ drama The Producers and on FTIsland’s MV for the song Madly, you can check it out below:
Hope you learned a little bit more about Gugudan and Mimi. Let’s wish her a happy birthday on the very first day of the year!
Today is Lee Sunmi’s 25th birthday (26th in korean age). Sunmi used to be a member of the korean girl group Wonder Girls (they were under JYP Entertainment) in which she was a main vocalist and bassist.
Sunmi also has her solo discography which includes the EP Full Moon – LEGENDARY may I say – and the single 24 Hours. She also composed a couple songs for one of Wonder Girls’ last albums – Rewind and Faded Love, both in album Reboot.
It’s very sad to think about Wonder Girls’ disbandment, however I hope to get to enjoy more of Sunmi’s music in the future♥
I’ll leave you with the MV for the song 보름달 an absolute BOP
Happy birthday to my dear bias and twin Sunmi hehe ♥
Today is Jinwoon’s 26th birthday (27th in korean age). He is a member of the korean ballad group 2AM – they debuted in 2008 with the title track 이노래 (This Song), a classic up to this day.
Fun fact: BTS’ Jungkook sang this song in his autidion for Superstar K3. You can check out the song and Jungkook’s audition below:
If you’ve ever heard of 2AM, you probably have a few questions regarding what happened to them as a group and which agency they’re under. Allow me to enlight you.
2AM debuted under JYP Ent., however, short after they decided to go under BigHit Ent. After their contract ended (about 4 years later) they decided to go back to their origins and sign with JYPE again. Now, supposdely, the overall group project is still under JYPE, but since their last comeback, in 2014, all members have signed with different agencies, except for Jo Kwon. There was never any announcement on their disbandment though.
Now, about JINWOON. He’s not only a talented singer, but also an actor. He has been in several dramas including DreamHigh, Marriage NotDating, Madame Antoine and Dream High 2 – where he made his official acting debut and played one of the lead roles Jin Yujin – hilarious one if you ask me, but also lowkey annoying. In fact, Dream High 2 screamed JYPE tbh lol, Jinwoon and Jaebum were the main leads, Jinyoung was the frustrated teenager and even Nayeon got a chance of a cameo.
Hope you know a bit more about Jinwoon now and that you’ll show him lots of love today! Again, he holds a special place in my heart because he is one of my twinsies♥Happy birthday~~
Today is BamBam’s (aka Kunpimook Bhuwakul) 20th birthday (21st in korean age). He is a member of the korean boy group GOT7 (they are under JYP Entertainment) in which he is a lead rapper and lead dancer.
I’ll assume 99% of you already know GOT7.. so there’s no real need to go into facts about BamBam, right?
Well, if you’re part of the other 1%, here’s what you should know about BamBam:
He is from Thailand
He is friends with BLACKPINK’s Lisa since childhood
He dabs every morning when he wakes up
He’s a skinny ass noodle
He is a cute lil shit and of my special sunshines in K-Pop because he is one of my twinsies ♥
Fun fact: He shares his birthday with his mother!
I hope BamBam spends a wonderful day near his hyungs and wild dongsaeng Yugyeom~~All the love!
I’ll leave you with GOT7’s latest release~ have a nice week^^
Today is Yoo Sungoh’s 26th birthday (27th in korean age). He is a member of the korean boy group 24K (they are under Choeun Entertainment) in which he is a lead vocalist.
Sungoh is currently on hiatus due to a shoulder injury… It upsets me aswell as many other fans because we know how much Sungoh wants to be active again. However, we don’t wish his injury to worsen considering it was a consequence of over-work 😦 We do wish him a fast recovery! Sungoh is such a sweet boy and he deserves to be happy & able to do what he loves. Can’t wait to have him back and send him lots of love ( ◡́.◡̀)\(^◡^ )
Today is Shim Hongseob’s 18th birthday (19th in korean age). He is a member of the korean boy group 24K (they are under Choeun Entertainment) in which he is a vocalist, lead dancer, rapper and maknae.
Hongseob debuted last year, along with member Changsun with 24K’s first release in 2016 – the track Still 24K. They weren’t part of the original line-up. After members Daeil and Sungoh went on hiatus, Changsun and Hongseob were added to keep a 7-member line-up. Later that year, 24K released FINALLY their 1st full-length album The Real One featuring the title track BINGO.
Check out the music videos below!
Happy birthday to our sweet, sweet maknae! 24K is currently in Warsaw, Poland for the 4th show in their Europe Tour Still With 24U. Hope Hongseob spends a lovely day there!
Wish them all the luck for their upcoming events and can’t wait to see them live in 2 days here in Lisbon omgjsfJHDFKJD
Today is Kim Byung Joo’s 23rd birthday (24th in korean age). He is a member of the korean boy group Topp Dogg (they are under HUNUS Entertainment) in which he is a vocalist and dancer.
Fun fact: during pre-debut days, B-Joo was a backup dancer for EvoL!
Sadly, there is still a whole bunch of people sleeping on Topp Dogg. I can’t believe people let their last comeback flop like that, it was so good (≖_≖ ) Hopefully, more people will acknowledge them next time… Or at least acknowledge B-Joo and his vocals!!
Today is Kim So Jung’s (aka Sowon) 21st birthday (22nd in korean age). Sowon is a member of the korean girl group GFriend (they are under Source Music) in which she’s the leader, main rapper, vocalist and visual.
GFriend debuted on January 14th, 2015 with the single Glass Bead, you can watch it here. If you’re into the K-Pop thing then you defenitely know how GFriend have killing the charts for quiet a while. Glass Bead didn’t receive much attention, which is common since it was debut single and they’re from a minor label. However, the summer of 2015 was deadass dominated by Me Gustas Tu, but their real bop wasn’t dropped until Rough which collected about 15 wins on music shows. GFriend are now the korean girl group with the biggest amount of wins on music shows in a year, with a total of 29.
But enough of GFriend! This is dedicated to our leader Sowon 🙂
Sowon is the loving mother in GFriend. Seriously, she cares so much about her members, she’s so cautious and works so hard to keep the girls happy. Every girl group deserves a leader like her. She’s more the quiet kind of girl but can still can make others laugh. She’s very skilled, she has a beautiful voice, dances amazingly well and speaks korean and japanese. Sowon is also very popular because people consider her body to have the “golden ration”.
Fun fact, her stage name Sowon (소원) means “wish” in english :3
Happy birthday to our loving leader Sowon! Wish her to spend a wonderful day near her members and loved ones~ 언니 사랑해 ♥♥
