Many countries have given flowers meaning for various occasions, and a common theme is “birth flowers”.  Most English-speaking countries give each month a significant flower(s) (ex. March = Daffodil, September = Aster/Morning Glory, etc.), however, Korea is unique in that it gives a birth flower for every single day of the year!

While it is technically just the day a group debuted their first song, isn’t it kind of like a birthday for the group? We looked at a few different groups and what flowers lined up with the day of their debut!

1. The Boyz
