The group were even able to celebrate leader Hongjoong‘s birthday on stage with fans during the first Anaheim concert on November 8. Hongjoong ended up covered in birthday cake after Wooyoung smashed his face into it, much to the amusement of the other members and fans!

As it turns out Wooyoung did not think of the idea all by himself!
In another clip, Wooyoung can be seen looking out to the crowd at fans and then motioning the cake-smashing motion while nodding. It seems like a fan in the crowd was doing the gesture in order to get one of the members to do it.
At first, it seems like he won’t do it because he tattles on the fan suggesting it, causing Hongjoong to jokingly ask if they were “even an ATINY.” The other members seem to settle on just rubbing cake onto his face lightly.
Wooyoung on the other hand continues to plot with the fan once Hongjoong isn’t looking and finds the perfect time to strike!
Hongjoong got so much cake on his face that the make-up artists were not able to help at all and he had to perform with the cake still on his face! The most hilarious part of this was Hongjoong telling fans that he would be sending Wooyoung “to Korea,” and saying him that he “will kill him.”

hongjoong said "If someone is coming to tomorrow's show, I'm sorry that wooyoung will not be there because I'll be sending him back to Korea today"
