It is always a momentous occasion when South Korean pop idols celebrate their birthdays. While some fans rush to wish their favourite singers on social media, others splurge thousands of dollars on billboard advertisements just for the occasion.
Over the years, K-pop idols have gotten even more creative (and sentimental) when celebrating their birthdays. From BTS’s V to IU, here are how some of them have marked the special occasion.
1. BTS’s V: Sang an Adele cover
The BTS vocalist has always delighted fans with his talent and good looks. Fans swooned back in 2014 when he released a cover of Adele’s Someone Like You to mark his 19th birthday. Instead of receiving gifts, the tables turned around as V gifted his song cover to fans.
His deep, nasally vocals were a fresh take on the British singer’s 2011 hit. Aside from sharing a good rendition of the English song, he also personally produced the track and filmed a music video as an icing on the cake.
