The moral of the story is: don't mess with Irene
28 Mar 2018 - 2:25 PM  UPDATED 28 Mar 2018 - 2:25 PM

Red Velvet's Irene is celebrating her birthday today, and in honour of the girl group leader's special day we've collated some of the moments where she proved to be the coolest idol in K-pop.

1. Hitting bull's eyes in archery like it's no big deal

2. Telling the crowd to quiet down and getting immediate silence

3. Being a cool queen while two grown men slowly inch towards her

Seriously how are BTS' Jin and EXO's Chanyeol so awkward

4. Her unimpressed face for a disrespectful husband on "Hello Counselor"

5. This entire opening vibe for "Bad Boy"

6. When she read a feminist book and didn't care about the negativity

7. The look she gives anyone who comes between her and her fans


8. This response to a question she clearly had no time for

Happy birthday Irene, keep being the queen you are!
