K-Pop Idol Birthdays – September!

With MUSIC being this month’s theme for the CULTURE box, it seems only fitting that we have the most star studded birthday list this month as well. So many artists from big groups will be turning one year older starting in September, but we will highlight our favourites now:

1st September – BTS’ Jungkook

Congratulations to the maknae of hit K-Pop group BTS for turning 20! It’s a big age, and to us it seems only yesterday that he was that fresh faced 15 year old when he debuted. Now, his group has a big comeback coming up on September 18th, so please anticipate it!

3rd September – Red Velvet’s Joy

Turning 21 is lead rapper Joy from SM’s newest girl group Red Velvet. She’s had a smashing summer with her members, as their mini-album ‘The Red Summer’, which was released in July, was a massive success. In fact, we’re still listening to some of the songs off the album now! Let’s hope that now the promotional activities are over for now, she can celebrate her birthday in style.

12th September – BTS’ Rap Monster

Did you know that boy group BTS has not just one, but two birthdays to celebrate this month? This time it’s leader and rapper Rap Monster, who will be turning 23. He’s such a hardworking and caring member of the group and we hope that his members will give him a break from his leadership duties for the day!

21st September – EXO’s Chen

Celebrating his 25th birthday is lead vocalist Chen from EXO! He’s been keeping himself very busy over the last 12 months, singing both in collaboration with other artists as well as solo. However, we think his biggest achievement this year is co-writing the lyrics for the song ‘Touch It’ on his group’s latest album ‘The War’. We hope he gets to celebrate properly with his fellow members on his special day!

22nd September – TWICE’s Nayeon

Nayeon, the face of the girl group TWICE, is turning 22 today! The group has been very busy this year, having already made two comebacks which were both incredibly successful. Both ‘Knock Knock’ and ‘Signal’ are so catchy that we still find ourselves humming the chorus sometimes! Hopefully Nayeon won’t have a busy schedule on her birthday so that she can take some much needed time to relax.

23rd September – SHINee’s Key

 

Can you believe that Key from SHINee will be turning 26 this month? He still looks so young! As a regular host of M! Countdown until this April

, this entertainer is probably very busy even when his group isn’t preparing for a comeback (that we know of!). Maybe he can take a break just for one day and treat himself to something special?

That’s everything from us! We’ve only highlighted a few of the biggest artists celebrating their birthdays this month, so click here for the full list. Do you share your birthday with one of the idols mentioned here? Let us know!
