It is such a sweet gesture that Jung II-woo chooses to celebrate his birthday with his fans. This year he celebrated his 22nd year of life (Korean years). For this Fan Meet / Birthday, Jung II-woo was serenaded by a singer called Big Mama King (BMK), he made some gimbap (I think!) and of course opened gifts and blew the candles of his cake!
There are so many photos! Cr. DCIlwoo and Daum Cafe Ilwoostory. As you see them there is a very short video of him in the cooking part… and then at the end there are two videos of BMK. The first one is called “Just Friend” and it features Dynamic Duo. Remember? They were the group that Jung II-woo sang with in his previous birthday! The second one I have no idea what it is about…but it sounded really beautiful so…

And here he is celebrating his birthday!!! Happy 22nd year!!!
A short shaky clip:
Just found this:
A newspaper from Annandale Minnesota in the USA? What?!!! I don’t have time right now…but maybe there is a large Immigrant Korean population there?
Something that I think is amazing happened to me yesterday. I am an elementary Spanish teacher…and I was asking one of my Second graders when her birthday was in Spanish. I have taught my students to count using their fingers up to 10 and then many clues to remember higher numbers. As she was counting very quietly…I noticed that she would stop at 8…somehow the couldn’t remember 9…and don’t ask me how I knew…but I figured her birthday was on the 9th…just like Ilwoo’s. And … it was!!! It made me so happy!
Something even more amazing is that the two people I love the most in this world have September birthdays! My mother’s is on the 8th! and my son’s is on the 11th! So when this time in the year comes, now with Ilwoo’s on the 9th…it is very special! It’s like that energy of these people I love so much is concentrated at this time of the year.
Wow…I just called to cancel my son’s dental appointment and the receptionist just told me her birthday was a day before my son’s…the 10th! This is getting creepy!
