Well, Kang-ah got to celebrate his birthday onscreen with some birthday soup, so now it’s actor Jo Hyun-jae‘s turn; the 49 Days star celebrated his 31st birthday while on set this past weekend (the day fell on May 9), pictured here with some birthday cake (and co-star Lee Yo-won).
Jo uploaded the above photo to his me2day account (a Korean Twitter-like service) with the simple note: “I’m celebrating this birthday on the set…Thank you for your birthday wishes.”
He also turned around the whole give-me-presents-it’s-my-birthday tradition by gifting the drama’s crew with jackets, pictured below. He said, “I wanted to give our hard-working staff a special present. It’s so great to have a birthday on set, and I’m so thankful to the fans who threw me a birthday party.” (Members from Jo’s fan club sought out the drama filming set to celebrate the occasion.)
I’m not usually one to confuse actors with the characters they play, but I just can’t help it: KANG-AH! Why so adorable?
