"Baekhyun's birthday is national holiday… there is no one that doesn't know. I'm a fan of another group, but only when May comes, wherever I go, it's Baekhyun. I think even passing-by ants also know 0506 is Baekhyun's birthday." pic.twitter.com/AIH7oL5vsn

1. Baekhyun Doll 2022
Baekhyun’s birthday is just around the corner this year, and the ever devoted Chinese fan site BAEKHYUNBAR has erected another inflatable doll of him, this time in Hongdae, a district of Seoul.

Paired with a giant screen playing his birthday ad, the birthday project draws attention from everyone, and it isn’t the only birthday event in Hongdae.
2. Birthday Cafes
A more common way fans celebrate their idols birthday, EXO-Ls have gone above and beyond to turn Baekhyun’s birthday celebration into a whole district event.
Look at the number of birthday cafe + events for KyoongDay 2022… KyoongFam is really turning Hongdae into Baekhyun Town for 6th May, it's a National Holiday at this rate 🐶💛#BAEKHYUN @B_hundred_Hyun pic.twitter.com/sErVVvPjZX

3. Cinema Ads
Baekhyun has also taken over the cinemas so no matter where you are in Korea, if you go to watch a movie, there’s a good chance you’ll see his birthday ad.

4. Drone And Firework Show
Perhaps the most ambitious of projects, Chinese fan site BBHKnight has organized both a drone show and a firework show commemorating Baekhyun’s birthday. Leave it to EXO-Ls to rival K-drama CEOs in terms of spoiling their loved ones.

5. Baekhyun Mascot 2020
As an honorable mention, we can’t talk about Baekhyun birthday events without remembering this 2020 project. Despite the pandemic, EXO-Ls got creative with how they’d celebrate Baekhyun’s birthday besides the usual subway and big screen ads. They came up with a Baekhyun mascot, equipped with a face mask, and the interactions that ensued between fans and the Baekhyun doll were the cutest. To whoever was in the mascot suit: thank you for your hard work and for gifting us with such beautiful memories.

And while this video is from 2019, Baekhyun is always aware of what his fans are doing for him, and the happiness he gains from EXO-Ls is equal to the happiness he gives EXO-Ls. May we all continue to be happy together.
