May K-Pop Idol Birthdays!

Hooray! We’re almost halfway through the year! For some of us, this is the time of year where we need some extra motivation. That’s why we’ve come up with this list of birthdays of some of our favourite idols. Hopefully an idol you like shares their birthday with a busy day at school or work, so you have something happy to celebrate!

Baby-faced Baekhyun will also be 25 years old this year! These last 12 months have been big for the popular EXO member, with the debut of sub-unit EXO-CBX as well as other releases with Sistar’s Soyou and his own solo on the SM Station. Soon they will be making their Japanese debut with the mini album ‘Girls’. Fingers crossed it’s well received by fans!

8th May – EXID’s Junghwa

Not one, but two of the members in the girl group are celebrating their birthdays this month! Maknae Junghwa will be turning 22, so perhaps the two girls with have a joint celebration?

Otherwise known as Korea’s little sister, the sensational IU is turning 24 this year. Recently, she made her comeback after nearly two years and it was well worth the wait! Hopefully she is able to take time out of her busy schedule and celebrate with some friends.

Can you believe that Taeyang will be turning 29 this year? He certainly doesn’t look it to us! Last year, BIGBANG celebrated their 10 year anniversary which is a really impressive feat! We hope that they’ll continue enjoying success in the years to come.

22nd May – EXO’s Suho

EXID is not the only group with two birthdays this month – EXO does too! The leader of the group Suho is celebrating his 26th birthday, and we hope that his members give him some special treatment on his birthday. After all, it isn’t easy being a leader!

Lead rapper and vocalist Dahyun of TWICE will be 19 this year! This girl group is an absolute sensation, continuing to scoop up lots of awards. Having released ‘Knock Knock’ a few months ago, we hope that the girls will be able to find some time to celebrate her special day!

The stunning soloist Ailee will be turning 28, can you believe it? We’ve heard that she’s rumoured to make a US debut this year, so we wish her all the luck with that. Hopefully people will receive her well in the States!

That’s all from us! Now you know a little bit more about these idols who are getting one year older. Let’s hope that this month is your month to power through whatever you need to do!
