Happy Minho Day . . .
YEAH . . . Right. It's tomorrow in South Korea and SHINee's Choi Minho is celebrating his 26th birthday (internationally 25th).
If you haven't guessed by now, he is my 'Ultimate' Bias (all time favorite, would never, never, never put anyone above him. My #1 out of all the members of any KPOP group). This is my tribute to this amazing singer, dancer, actor and all around nice man.
If you are not a follower of KPOP T_T (so sad) maybe this will help you understand why there are a growing number of music fans discovering this genre of music.

In October 16, 2016 Minho was a guest on the tvN variety show “Problematic Men" and was asked about joining S.M. Entertainment.
Question: “Since when did you dream of being a singer?”
Minho: “I had given up on my dreams of becoming a soccer player and I was just going to school as a normal student when I was casted on the street.”
Minho joined S.M. Entertainment after he auditioned at the 2006 S.M. Casting System. He continues, “As I was going to the audition, I thought to myself, ‘There’s no way I’ll make it.’ I didn’t prepare a song or a dance. And then when I finally got there, my mind went blank and I couldn’t remember a single song. I ended up singing the Korean national anthem. They asked me to sing one more song, so then I sang my school’s song. They took my picture and then later, I found out that I had passed the auditions.”
"Someone who is the face of the group, is also known as the center. The most recognizable out of all members. They also tend to be more outspoken and confident in general. hence one of the reasons they get more appearances on variety shows.
The face is also known to be the company’s ‘favorite’. Special projects like acting, and even sub groups, are often thrown to them to somewhat ‘guarantee’ the success or increse the popularity of the project."
I've always thought of him as S.M.'s golden boy . . .
In 2010 his acting debut was in 'Pianist'.
Host of 'Music Core' from 2013-2015.
His solo awards include 'Honorary Ambassador for Youth' and 'Best Model Male Idol' in 2011 to 'Popularity Award' for Music Core in 2014-2015, to name a few.
