WINNER's Song Min Ho found out just recently that he was born in 1992, not 1993?

On January 1, WINNER appeared as the first guests of 2019 on SBS Power FM 'Choi Hwa Jung's Power Time'!

First, the group revealed that they will be busy with preparations for their solo concert in Seoul, as well as their upcoming tour, for the month of January. Regarding the other members' potential solo promotions, WINNER revealed, "We are always preparing. Producer Yang Hyun Suk seems to think that it would be good for the other members to have solo activities, since Song Min Ho's solo promotions had great response. We cannot provide any specifics about Kim Jin Woo's solo debut. But we expect it will be some time in the latter half of 2019. Please continue to wait and anticipate it."

WINNER also talked about their promise for winning 1st place on a music program. Song Min Ho said, "When we went on Ji Suk Jin hyung's rado show, we promised kisses. We just kind of said whatever came to mind, and it was to put on lipstick and kiss one another's foreheads." Kang Seung Yoon added on, "We will fulfill our promise very soon via SNS." 

Additionally, Song Min Ho shared an interesting fact he just learned from his mother! "I turn 27 years old this year, because I was born in 1993. But actually, my mother told me that I was actually born in 1992. They registered my birth late. This was the first time I heard about it, so I was very taken back." Lee Seung Hoon commented, "Please get that taken care of asap. It's uncomfortable how Min Ho and iKON's Kim Jin Hwan used to be same age friends, but now Min Ho all of a sudden became hyung."

Whether it's in 1992 or 1993, thank you for being born, Song Mino! I wonder how this will change the dynamics of Mino's relationship with his same-age peers though, knowing the fact that age is such a BIG deal in Korea.

Other celebrities like Song Hye Kyo and Choi Siwon were also registered the year after they were born. My Dad too. It's a Korean thing lol

With how important age is in Korean culture, you'd think his mom would've told him before now

even if it's registered late, wouldn't the birth date remain the same? Or in korea are their birth dates recorded as the date it is registered? If so that is really weird. That would mean that everyone's birth days age actually false. Who actually registers their child the day theyre born?

i don't understand how this could even happen. i feel like they do this kind of stuff in the hospital usually. was he born at home? weren't the people at the social security office (or whatever the Korean equivalent is) wondering why his parent's took a full year to register their baby?

Wait how can jinhwan and minho be same age friends when jinhwan was born in 1994? and minho in 1993? does that mean that jinhwan was actually born in 1993? and now 1994? and minho in 1992?? that comment does not make sense!!!

Jinhwan has what they call a 'fast birthday' which is a birthday between real new year and lunar new year. Lunar new year in 1994 was feb 9 and Jinhwan was born on feb 7 so because of that he's considered as being the same age as 1993 line.

If you're familiar with zodiac signs you can think of it that way, Jinhwan was born in the year of the rooster according to the zodiac even though most other people born in 1994 are the year of the dog.

I hope that explains it, it's a confusing concept.

This korean age thing is pretty confusing. So I'll try to explain.

Jinhwan was born in Febuary 1994, it's called early 1994. Usually people who was born early 1994 went to school with people who was born in 1993, that's why Jinhwan and Minho are friends.
