In light of the upcoming ‘Pepero holiday’, singer Kim Hyun Joong prepared special Pepero gifts for his fans.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Pepero Day, it’s an unofficial holiday in South Korea developed by Lotte Corporation, who manufactures Pepero snacks. Pepero Day is held on November 11th since the date “11/11″ resembles four Pepero sticks. It’s practiced mainly by young couples who exchange Pepero sticks and other sweets — in other words, it’s technically like a Korean Valentines Day.
Returning to Kim Hyun Joong’s gift, several proof shots emerged online, causing envy amongst fans. The gifts were made by Kim Hyun Joong himself, who then shared them with fans at the ‘Sharing Love Concert‘ on November 6th in Seoul Olympic Stadium. The Pepero snack box contains an autograph as well as a heart-warming message.
Jealous netizens responded with, “He cares so much about his fans~“, “I want a Pepero too“, “Those fans are too lucky“, and “This is why you can’t help but love him“.
