May 2nd, it’s 2AM’s Jinwoon’s birthday
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 Dream High, Marriage Not Dating, 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~~
