In a recent video to Kep1er‘s YouTube channel, the members are seen preparing to pre-record their debut stages.
But at one point in the video members, Huening Bahiyyih and Hikaru go to the staff and prepare a birthday cake and candles to celebrate Youngeun‘s birthday.
Youngeun is certainly surprised as the other members begin to gleefully sing to wish her a happy birthday.
And alter she confesses to the camera that she cried when the members surprised her for her birthday in the morning…
… but that she also cried again at this second, unexpected surprise.
Of course, in addition to celebrating Youngeun’s birthday, the members are also celebrating Kep1er’s debut.
Which Huening Bahiyyih explains they bought the cake both for Youngeun and to celebrate their debut.
The staff cheerfully congratulate them for making their debut.
And Youngeun wishes for Kep1er to get first place as she blows out the candles on her and Kep1er’s birthday cake.
And Kep1er only had to wait 17 days after their pre-recording on December 27th for Youngeun’s birthday wish to come true.
Kep1er won with “Wa Da Da” on Mcountdown on January 13th, and all the members, including Youngeun and perhaps especially Yujin, were incredibly touched.
But of course, it wasn’t truly Youngeun’s wish that granted them their first win. The win was well deserved with “Wa Da Da’s” virality and how diligently the members worked before and after their debut to show their fans the best sides of themselves.
And certainly, Kep1er will only grow from here.
