Today is Jiwon’s birthday!
To celebrate our main vocal’s 22nd year (or 23rd in Korean age), the Promise Publications team has made the best possible use of their time in quarantine by binge-watching videos of Busan’s Mariah Carey.
For this special March 20th, we carefully selected 20 Jiwon trivia in hopes old and new flovers can get to know a little more about fromis_9’s Vitamin.
