Don’t stop the music everyone! Keep the party going! Soshi’s resident dancing queen is celebrating her 23rd birthday in Korean age today! Let’s hope that she will have an awesome time celebrating with her members, family and friends today!
If you remember, earlier this month, Kim Choding had a birthday surprise event on September 11th with SONEs at the third and final concert in the girls’ 2nd tour in Taipei, Taiwan. Hyoyeon managed to avoid being caked completely by the members (they wanted to celebrate it “properly” back home) but still ended up with a face full of cake and icing, thanks to Yuri, Taeyeon and surprisingly, maknae who started it (plus a flick on the forehead by Jessica!).
The kind Hyoyeon is known to be a good friend and listener to her other eight members, especially to her roommate Seohyun, where she listens to her rantings and gushes even when she was green with envy, such as during the latter’s ‘We Got Married’ days. And being roomie with a sensible maknae, she also has to put up with her early morning studying sessions and such but as Seohyun said, Hyoyeon takes really good care of her.
The quirky girl with a 4-dimensional personality is also the moodmaker in the group, constantly cracking them up with her jokes and hilarious actions! Of course, who can forget her one-of-a-kind mistakes with words and pronunciations? I mean, who else gets tongue-tied, gets senior celebrities’ names wrong and calls a campfire a campfighter? Jokes aside, that is undeniably one of the many charms of our beloved Kim Choding.
The dancing queen is not given such a nickname for nothing. Hyoyeon’s powerful dances amaze not only her members and fans but also other celebrities and media. Hyoyeon may be known as a “fashion terrorist” on occasions but once she steps onto the stage, everyone is mesmerized by her charismatic performances and dances!
Unsurprisingly, Hyoyeon is also one of the more athletic members of SNSD (think of Sooyoung’s failed long legs in Enjoy Today and the princess’ refusal to run in AAGG) and her athletic capabilities were proven more than once in Dream Team 2.
Also, who can forget the unique girl’s habits after she had a drink too many, as revealed by her members? Scrubbing floors and comparing floor tiles colours are nothing new but poor maknae was hit on the forehead by Hyoyeon’s knuckles while the latter mumbled about her “uptightness”!
On the other hand, Hyoyeon showed off her patience and loving personality on many occasions such as in the Hello Baby series, where she was seen as one of the main carers of Kyungsan and also one of the ‘Best Moms’. She is also never one to hide behind a mask as her straightforward personality often had her speaking her mind even on television and radios. The best example of that would be the time on Strong Heart when she confessed her crush on a male idol. Then again, in the recent episode of Strong Heart, Hyoyeon said she doesn’t have a crush anymore.
Anyway, the above is just the tip of the iceberg about our cute and charming Kim Hyoyeon. The more you get to know her, the more you will fall for her charms! With this, all of us from the Fanwonder.com family would like to wish Hyoyeon a very Happy Birthday! Have fun with your eight mischievous sisters/best friends and don’t fall for their pranks!

Update 1: ‘Cistus’ celebrates Hyoyeon’s birthday with ad and charity work
On September 22nd, Hyoyeon, who turns 23 on this very day, received birthday wishes from SONEs. SNSD’s fancafe ‘Cistus’ published an ad on a newspaper to convey their birthday messages for Hyoyeon. A member of Cistus said, “After the SM Town concert in Europe, Hyoyeon has become SNSD’s new symbol. She is like the morning star that glitters at dawn.”
For Hyoyeon’s birthday, ‘Cistus’ made donation to children’s foundation through Naver’s Happy Bean. On August 27th, they have also carried out voluntary activities at Taehwa Senior Citizen Welfare Centre in Incheon. In addition to this, SNSD’s Taiwanese fans were also involved in the project where the donations they made were used to purchase the daily necessities.
