Today is June 28 and that means another celebration for BOICE, as it is our Lovely drummer Kang Minhyuk‘s 25th birthday. Kang Minhyuk was born in Seoul, South Korea, on June 28, 1991 (he is 25 years old in Korean age because Koreans consider new-born baby as one year old).
This year is probably the year where we can see Minhyuk in more variety shows than we could in the previous years. And to celebrate this special day, here’s the list of 25 things you need to know about him. Enjoy!
