Today is a special day for EXO member Lay. The dimpled star turns 27 (28 in Korean age) so to celebrate, here are some fun facts about him!

1. He can beatbox


2. Jackie Chan taught him how to drive

He learnt how to drive a car from famous actor Jackie Chan when they filmed Kungfu Yoga together.

3. He has his own wax figure. Guess which one's the real Lay!


4. He's ticklish around his neck 


5. His laugh is like Pringles

Once he starts, he can't stop.


6. He's a best-selling author

Did you know Lay can write? And we're not just talking song lyrics. In 2015, he released his self-penned autobiography Standing Firm at 24, which became a best-seller and broke several online book records in China. Almost half a million copies of it were sold within six months. 

7. He's obsessed with rabbits

8. The acting role he most wants to take on is that of a killer

Or a T-rex. But unfortunately he hasn't been offered those roles just yet. 



Aww, can someone please get him on Criminal Minds or Jurassic Park asap?!

Happy birthday to the self-proclaimed lead sheep of China, Zhang Yixing!
