Today is a very special day for INFINITE and their fans - it's Sunggyu's birthday!

To celebrate Sunggyu's 28th (29 in Korea) birthday, fans have decided to do something a little bit offbeat by sharing all their favourite anecdotes and funniest stories involving the INFINITE leader.

So without further ado, here are some of the funniest fan stories and anecdotes of the birthday boy!

  • Fan: Sunggyu-ya, nuna's bank account is filled up!!!!!!!!
    Sunggyu: Congratulations! Now work hard on your self-development!!!
    (T/N: telling her not to be money-centered/greedy)​

  • Fan: Oppa, do you know that you're really handsome..? Wonbin's jawline can't even be compared to yours!
    Sunggyu: I'm a Wonbin fan. Don't insult him.​

  • At a fan signing event, a fan asked Sunggyu to grab her wrist charismatic-ly (like drama wrist-grabs)
    But Sunggyu just lightly held her wrist and gave her a sign and was waiting for the next fan.
    The fan said "Ah that's not itㅠ" and thanked him and was on her way to leave.
    Suddenly, Sunggyu grabbed her wrist and pulled her towards him and smiled while saying "Like this?"

  • Question: What will you do if one of the members liked the person you like?
    WH: I would give her up.. Meeting a woman is only a tiny part of my life while my members are an eternal part of my life.
    SY: If it was my friends, I wouldn't give her up. But if it was my members, I would.
    Sunggyu: Since everyone else is giving her up, I think it's fine for me not to give her up.​

  • Fan: Oppa, what do you think of a girl like me being your girlfriend?
    SG: (he looked up at the fan) Your name.....
    Fan and Sunggyu awkwardly stared at each other: ...........................................
    SG: ......................your name...........? (he was trying so hard to be serious and not laugh that it turned into an awkward silence)
    Then the fan and Sunggyu both burst out laughing: ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

  • At a Fan Signing Event:
    A fan asked Sunggyu to give her a hug, but the manager told her to hurry up and move forward.
    Sunggyu blocked his manager with his body and quickly hugged the fan ㅠㅠㅠ

  • Just this:


  • A fan came with a wedding dress on:
    Sunggyu burst into laughter and was on the floor laughing. After a few seconds, he got up and the first thing he said was:
    Sunggyu: Did you borrow it...? Does your family know you’re doing this? That you took it? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
  • At a Fan Signing Event:
    Fan: Oppa, my eyes are smaller than yours! So don’t worry!
    Woohyun who was next to him burst into laughter and Sunggyu was laughing too.
    Then he stopped laughing.
    Sunggyu: I don't know what you mean. My eyes are way bigger than yours.
    Then he gave a wink just laughed again.

  • At Sunggyu's Solo Event:
    Fan: Sunggyu-ya! Don't go! Walk slower! Don't leave so quick!
    Sunggyu: *starts walking in slow motion*

  • At this same event, Sunggyu wore a shirt that said "F**k Off" on it.
    Sunggyu: Wait, I have some inappropriate words on my shirt
    Sunggyu: *proceeds to cover with his hand*
    Sunggyu: Now it's good
    Fans: *notices he only covered the "Off" and not the "F**k"*

Happy birthday, Sunggyu!
