Seollal Special: Koreans Idols Born In The Year of The Rabbit

3rd February 2011 marks the first day of the lunar calendar. It is known as Seollal (설날) in Korean. It is the year of the Rabbit. Many popular Korean Idols are born in the year of the rabbit. As we can see, these idols truly have the personality traits of rabbits – refined and gentle facade with a strong mind. Let’s take a look at our rabbit idols! 

Ryeowook – Super Junior & Jooyeon – After School / 김려욱 – 슈퍼주니어 & 이주연 – 에프터스쿨

Kim Ryeowook is known to be one of the best vocalists in Super Junior and he has recently sang for the O.S.T for the dramas “President  프레지던트”  and “Home Sweet Home 즐거운 나의집”. Super Junior sub-group, Super Junior-M will be releasing a Mandopop album this year.
Lee Jooyeon is from the girl group – After School. They received great success last year with the song “BANG!”. We certainly hope After School will release another great hit song this year!
