Kang Min Hyuk, CNBLUE's drummer, celebrated his birthday on June 28. Kang is an upbeat member within the K-pop-rock group, often infusing his effervescent personality into his stage performances. While he is known for his music performances, K-Drama fans recognize him from his roles in the musical drama "Heartstrings" and as Yoon Chang Young in the successful teen series, "The Heirs."
Here are six fun facts about CNBLUE's Kang Min Hyuk.
1. He is not the youngest member of CNBLUE.

The 24-year-old star recently appeared on the variety show, "I Live Alone," where he revealed that "Who Are You: School 2015" star Kim So Hyun was his ideal type. In previous interviews, he selected "IRIS" star Kim Tae Hee, but it appears as though she may have been replaced. When he was presented with an opportunity to call the "Who Are You: School 2015," he shyly addressed her. Unfortunately, she was busy filming and unable to speak with him.

The misfortunate situation has a positive ending, as the band members decide to continue pursuing their craft, at the advice of the amateur musician-turned-bakery owner.
5. Kang Min Hyuk appeared in two dramas with Park Shin Hye.
