NOTE: Some of you might be confused about Minzy’s Coming-Of-Age Day because EM celebrated it last year, and we organised a project for it too. It’s all quite confusing actually, because Minzy’s an early 1994 baby, which technically, makes her Coming-of-Age Day to be last year. BUT, there’s no harm in celebrating it twice hehe. And according to a fanaccount by KONGDOT who gave her some Coming Of Age gifts this year, Minzy said that she thinks of it as this year as well since she’s a 94’er, so let’s just celebrate it twice kk.
All the people born in 1995 celebrated officially becoming an adult with Coming of Age Day on April 19, including several idol group members.
Due to the change in legal age from 20 to 19 in July 2013, people born after July 1994 celebrated their Coming of Age Days belatedly.
Miss A’s Suzy stated through JYP Entertainment, “It’s a weird but good feeling. I think if I receive a bouquet of flowers on Coming of Age day, I would feel really good. My wish was to get a driver’s license and drive home by myself after finishing a schedule. I recently fulfilled this wish. I’m really happy. There’s nothing that I’m sad about, but time is passing quickly. I’ll work harder!”
2NE1’s Minzy posted on her Instagram while on tour in the Philippines, “I didn’t know tomorrow is my Coming of Age day. My fans gave me some beautiful roses and gifts. And who’s gonna kiss me on my cheek?”
Technically, Minzy became legal on Coming of Age Day in 2013, but the 2NE1 member still celebrated the occasion with a bouquet of roses from the fans.
Teen Top’s Niel, Ricky and Changjo celebrated Coming of Age Day with roses on Teen Top’s official Twitter, which stated, “Please receive the roses from Niel, Ricky, and Changjo, who welcome Coming of Age Day on May 19!”
It became known that fans donated a well at a school of 400 children in Cambodia under Niel’s name for the special occasion.
Ricky and Changjo also decided to get a health check since they became adults. Niel was unfortunately unable to go as he is currently filming SBS′ The Laws of the Jungle.
Actor Park Ji Bin, who started out as a child actor in 2001 at the age of six, became an adult today as he tweeted, “Already an adult…!! I received the Diptyque Oyedo perfume that I really wanted as a present!! Thank you~ Congrats to all the 94- and 95-ers who became an adult!“
