Son Ye-jin, Hyun Bin celebrate son’s first birthday
Korean superstars Son Ye-jin and Hyun Bin took the industry by storm when they first announced their relationship until their marriage and parenthood. Now, the couple’s son has turned a year old, and they are happy parents to celebrate the milestone.
On November 28, Ye-jin posted an old baby picture of herself on Instagram, which fans first thought was a picture of her son, but the actress just wanted to thank them for celebrating his son’s first birthday.
In her caption, the actress said that her son is cuter than her, and she wanted to thank the fans whom she’s calling aunts for showing love and giving presents to her son, which she greatly appreciates.
“The experience of seeing my child self that I don’t quite remember through blurry photos, now overlapping and being projected on my child, feels mysterious,” Ye-jin wrote on her Instagram.
“Thank you for wishing our Alkongie a happy first birthday. Alkongie really liked all the presents he received. But moving forward, even a heartfelt letter to show your support is really enough,” she further said as she called her son by his nickname.
”I pray that all aunties have a happy day; instead of Alkongie’s picture, Alkongie’s mom instead. Compared to when Alkongie’s mom was young, Alkongie is a million times cuter.” read the translation by @sonyejins_
