On June 28th, Seohyun celebrated her 20th birthday (21st in Korean culture), and since her birthday coincided with Girls’ Generation’s Japanese tour, 13,000 fans got to celebrate with her. The message boards at the arena first showed, “Seohyun-ah! Happy Birthday!” before the girls and all of those in attendance sang “Happy Birthday” to Seohyun. To this, Seohyun responded while crying, “This was a celebration for many people. I’m really happy.” Of course, no Girls’ Generation birthday celebration is complete without the birthday girl’s face being smeared with icing, which is exactly what happened to Seohyun as she blew out the candles on her cake.

Seohyun also released a UFO Star Call and message on her birthday. In the Star Call, posted above, Seohyun starts off by singing “Happy Birthday” and making viewers wish her happy birthday during the song. She thanks fans for the birthday wishes and mentions that she thinks she can perform better during the concert because of their support. Seohyun also says that she will work as hard as fans cheer for her, and that she will strive to become a singer fans can be proud of.

In the UFO message Seohyun released on her birthday, she thanks fans once again for their birthday wishes and her parents for giving birth to her. The complete translation is below:
