On September 6, ZE:A‘s Kwanghee wrote on twitter, “HaPPy BirTHdAy to miNWoO! This is kinda hard to write alternatively in upper and lower cases. Is this tacky? Haha anyhow, happy birthday Minwoo” and posted a picture along with the initial comment.
The revealed photo shows Kwanghee smiling brightly with his teeth showing next to Minwoo. Minwoo is also smiling at the camera but has his cellphone next to his right year, looking as if he is having a conversation on the phone and Kwanghee ambushed him with a camera to take this picture.
Netizens commented, “Happy birthday Minwoo,” “One year has passed like this, happy birthday,” “I will pray for you to be respected by others, Minwoo,” and “Always stay together.” Minwoo thanked his fans for all the birthday wishes on twitter, “I’m so surprised and thankful. I didn’t tell anybody about my birthday. How did you guys find out? Thank you so much. I will be the always trying hard, humble Minwoo. Thank you once again for all the birthday wishes.”
Minwoo was born on September 6, 1990 and is turing 22 this year. He made it through JYP Entertainment’s audition in 2008, but Moon Joon Young, who is now the leader of ZE:A, recommended him to Star Empire. As a result, Minwoo relocated to Star Empire and made his official debut in January 2010 as a member of ZE:A.
