Kim Minseok, better known as EXO’s oldest member Xiumin turned 30 (in Korean age) today! So here are some reason to love EXO’s cutest hyung if you don’t already do!
1)He is the fake maknae of EXO
Known for looking young, Xiumin has many cute charms that make people think that he is actually the maknae of EXO! With a baby face, Xiumin will still look like he is in his early 20's for many, many years!
2) He is actually really smart!
We love a man that values education! Though Xiumin has a very busy schedule with EXO, he is actually enrolled in a graduate program and is currently studying for a doctorate. Xiumin might be one of the first few idols that have ever gotten a Ph.D.! Kudos to Xiumin for not giving up on his academics! This is a picture of him at his School's campus with fellow students!
3) He is a fanboy!
Xiumin often speaks about his love for other idol groups, especially TVXQ, which inspired him to audition for SM to start with! Now, he often hangs out with his idol Changmin, and he is still not ashamed or afraid to speak out about his love for Changmin and the respect he has for the man! In fact, Xiumin is living the fanboy dreams, being spotted as a regular at many of TVXQ's concerts.
4) He takes excellent care of himself!
Xiumin is known to put in many hours of hard work to always maintain his body in the best condition. Fans have also gone crazy because of how confident Xiumin is when he is working it on stage! We stan a talented and confident man!
5) He encourages fans to stay healthy!
When Xiumin first debuted, he was actually criticized for having chubby cheeks and was called ‘fat’ by anti-fans. This made him go to great lengths to lose the weight and it got to a point where he stopped eating and starved himself to keep the weight off. At the time, members even spoke up in interviews about their concern for his health. Thankfully, Xiumin got better and now, he always tells fans that starving or extreme dieting is not the way to go. Instead, exercising regularly and looking after yourself is the way to go.
6) He can do everything!
Many fans know that Xiumin has great balance! He is good in every aspect, in singing, in dancing and even in rapping! He is actually the EXO member that can hit the highest note and his dance skills are no joke, earning him the rightful position of the lead dancer in EXO. To add on, in EXO-CBX, he has proven how he can also rap if the time calls for it. Kim Minseok really can do it all!
7) His love for EXO and EXO-Ls
Xiumin has mentioned before that being the oldest member is not an easy job, but he does try his best! Being and working with people he loves motivates him to want to do better, EXO and EXO-Ls are what makes him want to push himself and do better each and every day!
We love Kim Minseok and wish him a very Happy 30th Birthday. So what is your favorite reason to love Xiumin? #HappyXiuminDay
