The Fall/Autumn Season is kicking in, and I’m excited for many reasons. First, the fall season is my personal favorite season. Second, my birthday is coming up. Third, Halloween is coming soon. But last, but not least, it’s also MADKID’s Prince Charming SHIN’s birthday. He will be turning 26 next week on Wednesday, October 2. 1
SHIN had a lot of accomplishments at age 25. I’ll try to summarize a few of them from what I can remember:
- He launched his second solo mini-live, SHIN-derella Night vol. 2, about a week right after his 25th birthday. Not only that, but it was also the first time that he increased the number of limited guests from 50 to about 100 when he received so many entries to get into the lottery and be one of the lucky Axcels to get into his show.
- He became a new model for the new high-end Harajuku fashion clothing line Jamie AnK back in late October – early November.
- On January 2019, he switched livestream platforms from Pococha to LINE LIVE. His number of viewers and fans increased then, which also included new global fans, thanks to the popularity of The Rising of the Shield Hero.
- Sometime in June 2019, he made his “overseas debut” by flying to Seoul, South Korea for a 2-day vacation by himself. We didn’t expect that he 2 is also preparing for a bigger event.
- He and MADKID made their official overseas debut when they were invited to perform at the Crunchyroll Expo 2019 as a result of the global popularity of Shield Hero.
Things are becoming to get a lot brighter and I have a feeling that there are more opportunities and blessings await for him after he turns 26. From this point, please share your birthday greetings and blessings to SHIN once October arrives.
