Fans celebrate Jung Kyung Ho's birthday as the "Hospital Playlist" star turns a year older.

With this, netizens showed their support and love for the South Korean actor, who is celebrating his 38th birthday.

On Twitter, several fans shared their warm greetings with hilarious photos alongside the hashtag #ShiningJungstarDay to commemorate his special day.

An individual even noted his iconic scene where the "Prison Break" star sang the famous "Andrea Song" in reference to Yoo Yeon Seok's character Ahn Jung Won a.k.a Andrea.

As his true blue fans would know, Jung Kyung Ho has amassed several remarkable K-dramas under his belt.

In 2014 he starred in the famous series "Endless Love" followed by "Falling for Innocence" and mystery comedy-drama "Missing 9."

However, it was "Prison Playbook" where he played the famous baseball player's childhood friend Lee Joon Ho, and "Hospital Playlist" as the grump Kim Jun Wan, that put his name as one of South Korea's bankable stars.

To honor Jung Kyung Ho's birthday, here are the five essential facts that you should know about the 38-year-old actor.

Who would have known that this versatile actor was once opposed by his father to pursue acting?

Although his father, PD Jung Eul Young, who helmed the 2012 drama "Childless Comfort," is in the entertainment industry for years, the patriarch reportedly did not want his son to be an actor.

In one episode of tvN's "On-Site Talk Show Taxi," he revealed that he secretly enrolled in Chung Ang University's theater and film department "due to the strong opposition" from his father.

 "Then, I passed the KBS actor recruitment and started acting," he added.

It only means that if it weren't for his eagerness, "Hospital Playlist" fans wouldn't have the grumpy yet talented cardiothoracic surgeon, Jun Wan.
