K-Pop Idol Birthdays – July!

Finally we are in July, and summer is officially in full swing. We hope that you’re getting ready for your vacation, making plans to get together with friends or just simply enjoying the sunshine. Perhaps you’re even going to a party or two this month, just like these idols who are celebrating their birthdays! Here’s a list of some of the idols who are turning 1 year older this month:

1st July – NCT’s Taeyong

Heartthrob Taeyong of both NCT U and NCT 127 is 22 today! Having only debuted a year ago, he’s already been involved in many releases and comebacks, ‘Cherry Bomb’ by NCT 127 being the latest one. As well as this, he’s appeared on variety shows and reality shows all across Asia along with his fellow members. If that’s not enough, the group was even able to scoop up an award or two in many big award ceremonies at the end of last year, including ‘New Artist of the Year’ at the Golden Disk Awards. Let’s hope Taeyong and his members get some time off their busy schedules to properly celebrate today!

5th July – VIXX’s Hyuk

Lead dancer and maknae Hyuk will also be celebrating his 22nd birthday this year! Having been busy with ‘Shangri-La’ promotions since mid-May, he’ll hopefully have some more time to himself. Perhaps he’ll compose another song, like ‘Give You A Hug’ which he released this year for Lunar New Year. In any case, he should do something special to celebrate his birthday with his members too!

17th July – Seventeen’s Wonwoo

Turning 21 is Wonwoo from Seventeen! With every comeback, this 13 member group continues to surprise us and ‘Don’t Wanna Cry’, their latest music video, was no exception! Fingers crossed their promotions for their new album ‘A|1’  will finish by the time his birthday rolls around, so he can have a proper party with the rest of the group.

18th July – SHINee’s Taemin

Maknae and dancing legend Taemin of SHINee is turning 24! Having debuted at just 15 years old, everything that he’s achieved is simply incredible. From solo albums to amazing collaborations, most notably ‘The Showdown’ with BTS’ Jimin at the 2016 KBS Song Festival, he’s done virtually everything! Let’s hope that his career continues to blossom in the years to come.

23rd July – Mamamoo’s Hwasa

Celebrating her 22nd birthday is the sexy rapper Hwasa! Mamamoo is one of our favourite groups, making unique comebacks again and again. Having just released their EP ‘Purple’, the girl group will be extra busy this month but hopefully they’ll still be able to have a nice meal in the city to celebrate their maknae’s birthday.

That’s everything from us! Remember to stay tuned for next month’s list!
