Fans celebrated Taeyang’s birthday on May 18 by sending him their birthday greetings in various ways – through personal gifts and messages, fan projects, social media (twitter, instagram, facebook), and posting greetings in blogs, fansites and forums. As expected , Taeyang responded to the outpouring of creative, humorous and sweetly sincere wishes with humble gratitude:
In addition he also reminded everyone of the anniversary of the May 18 Gwangju Democratization Movement in his later tweet: “Today is my birthday but it is also an unforgettable day in history. Each year I am moved that I was born on such a meaningful day. Thank you to everyone that wished me a happy birthday and to everyone that played a small part in history. I will think of you all and spend this day being thankful.” [translation by @saraseoul on twitter.]

And just putting it in here because GD’s greeting was particularly cute:
And his later tweet (his 1000th apparently) : “Youngbae-ya, happy birthday it’s 12 now bbam bbarabambam I’m sending my heart from Hong Kong heart bbyong” (@BBIGBANGISVIP)
They’re so cute. Not even distance or a spacebar will separate them from each other.
Lol about the spacebar.
