Lovelyz‘ Mijoo was totally surprised when the staff of LEARN WAY celebrated her birthday early! Her confused, surprised, and emotional reactions were too precious.
In the latest episode, Mijoo was learning how to cook steak from accomplished chef Edward Kwon. It seemed like the episode was about to end since the two had finished making one dish, but suddenly the PD signaled for someone outside!
While Mijoo and Kwon were showing the producer the food, two people came in with a cake and started singing “Happy Birthday.” Mijoo was so confused, but she started singing along too…
…except she thought it was for Edward Kwon! Her reaction was hilarious when she realized they were singing her name, not his.
When she pointed out that her birthday wasn’t for another month (they filmed on August 31 but her birthday is September 23), the PD said the episode will air on her birthday so they’re just celebrating it early. Mijoo cracked up when she heard this!
Her cake was totally adorable and had Mijoo freaking out: it had a drawing of Jjangu on the top!
The birthday cake wasn’t the only surprise, however. Earlier in the episode, Mijoo mentioned one of her favorite dishes is seaweed soup, a food that’s traditionally eaten on one’s birthday. Kwon arrived on set hours earlier to prepare seaweed soup for her!
It was definitely fitting for the unique atmosphere on LEARN WAY, and Mijoo was totally caught by surprise so it was a success! Check out the full episode below.
