Lee Min Ho tries and fails to blow birthday candle in adorable clip

Korean hallyu star Lee Min Ho celebrated his 33rd birthday last June 22 and was greeted with a room full of gifts, flowers, and birthday cards from fans from all over the world.

The King: Eternal Monarch star showed his appreciation in his Instagram post with the caption, “Thank you everyone, U all made today as a special day.”

He also shared a video of himself trying to blow the candle on a cake that was apparently too far away from him, and he broke into a laugh when he couldn’t do it.

Before his birthday celebration at home, he reportedly went on a trip to Jeju Island with friends Woo Do Hwan, Jung Il-woo, and Kim Bum.

Min Ho’s latest kdrama series The King aired its final episode last June 12 with an 8% nationwide audience share, according to Nielsen. The actor teamed up with Korean actress Kim Go Eun in the romantic-fantasy drama where love transcends alternate realities.

The actor also starred in other hit k-drama series such as Boys Over Flowers, The Heirs, City Hunter, and Legend of the Blue Sea.

Happy birthday to our one and only Pyeha! (That’s “Your Majesty” in Korean)
