As those of you who are SHINee fans are likely already aware, on September 23rd, member Key celebrated his 23rd (24th in Korea) birthday! The other members decided to give him a funny surprise for his special day, and woke him up by smashing a cake in his face!
According to Key’s account of the events, which he recalled on his Instagram account, fellow member Minho was the brains behind this operation, planning out a small surprise party. Minho also made sure that himself and the other members present, Taemin and Jonghyun, were all dressed in Key’s clothes, so that the well-known diva wouldn’t be tempted to get revenge and cake them back!
Leader Onew apparently missed the memo, as he was out eating udon while the others were pranking the birthday boy. Key didn’t seem too worried though, as he stated on one of his Instagram photos that he knows Onew will give him birthday love when he returns home. Key also makes sure to thank his fans, writing about how he saw all of the gifts his “lil freaks” had prepared for him, and gives them all of his love.
Check out Key’s Instagram post below:
For those that wish they could see the cake face-smash in action, never fear! Jonghyun is here for you! He posted a video of the hilarious event on his personal YouTube account, and you can view it below:
It cracked me up how Jonghyun made sure Key couldn’t escape, holding him down while Minho attacked. What do you think of SHINee’s birthday tactics? Join us in wishing Key a very happy birthday, and look forward to more updates on SHINee and all other K-pop artists!
