May 6 marks the special day EXOs Baekhyun was born, and fans around the world celebrated with much joy!
Just two days before on May 4, Baekhyun personally ushered in his birthday early with fans at an intimate event, where he prepared a fun game of bingo and just chatted with his loving fans. As affectionate as always, he satisfied fans curiosities during a QA session, and expressed how much he loved and was grateful for everyone.

The event was held at SM Artium located in COEX Mall, where presidential candidate Moon Jae In was also holding an event. A spokesperson for his campaign expressed birthday wishes for Baekhyun on Twitter as well, after noticing that his party was also being held the same day.

Fans also took birthday projects to the next level, in addition to the expected subway, bus, billboard, and cafe ads. Some of the most impressive ones included Baekhyun Baidu Bars seven-part project, which included an entire train on the airport express line decked out in support for Baekhyun, and as well as his face on a limited number of Jin Air boarding passes.
