Jung II-woo celebrated his birthday with the inauguration of his Japanese Fanclub “Smilwoo.” Sadly there were few photos made available of the event at that time. Some came out in that moment of Jung II-woo practicing for the event and then a few of the event surfaced later. I think the reason was that they made a DVD of the event for sale to the fans, and didn’t want people taking and distributing photos ahead of time. I found a promotional video of said DVD:
Update September 1, 2012: Just found another video! Made by “Snowy” from Jungilwoo CNFansWorld. It is so amazing! She actually recorded his voice singing and then giving his final message to the fans on this day. It is so moving:
And here are the few photos I found. Rehearsing:
And here are the Event ones:
These are photos of gifts he published in the diary of Jung II-woo.com…
생일축하해주신 모든분들 감사합니다.

Thank you Everybody !!!!!!!! ^^
Thank you everyone !!!!!!!! ^^
Bonus? OK…here is the Ñapa! I love this first photograph! Cr. Erduo! What a great photographer!
Hummm… not sure what I think of the prohibitions of photo taking in an event like a Fan Meet. Seriously! It’s not a classical concert… it’s a FAN MEET! Fans want to take photos and videos…as many as they possibly can! And they want to share them!
Now all we have are these sad photos of his 25th birthday… and probably scratched, forgotten DVD’s in some forgotten corner in someone’s bookcase. Just great!
Fortunately, I don’t think this can happen anymore!
