International heart throb actor Lee Min Ho is celebrating his birthday as the actor turned 28. On his official Instagram, the actor reached out to fans by uploading two very candid photos with the words "Thank you" and the hashtags "#0622," "#birthday" and "#mino," granting us a view of himself surrounded by a heap of presents. One is a bit blurry; however, fans can still make out the countless unopened boxes and his teeny pup Chocositting side-by-side his owner. The other photo is of better quality and fans can see even more clearly the big boxes of gifts that Lee Min Ho has yet to open.
Lee Min Ho was not only on the receiving end on this special day as he returned his fans' favors by gifting them with a touching ballad titled "Thank You." The lyrics show appreciation and love for all his fans and go something like this: "I didn't know what it felt to be loved before we met...I meant it when I said I'm happy. I want to answer to your affection."
The actor has a surprisingly sweet voice that just melts in your ears the moment you hear it (maybe he should have debuted as an idol!). Listen to the song for yourself and enjoy Lee Min Ho's lovely vocals above!
