Hold the presses: EXO K does something else other than loitering around airports



EXO-K have been spending their free time doing charity work for child welfare agencies, and now, fans are able to see them in action for the worthy cause.

All six members of EXO-K arrived at the child welfare facility, Eden Iville, in Hawangsimnidong, Seoul on the 22nd. They helped entertain the children and clean the place up during their third visit to the facility.


The members shared their love for children, sharing, “Although we’ve volunteered at various places, we are most happy when we get to meet children.”

Baekhyun, Suho, and D.O. took charge of cleaning the cafeteria, and D.O. showed his experience by stating, “We have to remove the dust first and clean it with water.” Meanwhile, Kai and Sehun took their steam vacuums to the play room, while Chanyeol was left to clean the bathroom. Chanyeol jokingly complained, “I always have to clean the bathroom.”



After cleaning up the children’s center, the members got some time to have fun sharing laughs and playing games with the kids. After entering the nursery, Baekhyun immediately put a little girl on his lap and said, “I saved this for her,” taking out some candy from his pocket to give to the cute toddler. Sehun also looked around for a girl he remembered, saying, “There was a child I really adored, but she moved to the States. Since she was adopted by good parents, it was for the best.”

Although EXO-K could have used their free time to rest up for their busy schedule, they impressed fans by putting volunteer work as a more important priority. Suho shared, “After eating, I should return and practice hard until 1-2 AM in the morning,” revealing just how busy the group really is.

EXO-K gave their farewell greeting to the children after the day was over, stating, “Let’s meet again.”

I like when idols do volunteer work. it's a way to make young people actually pay attention to certain things

'Sehun also looked around for a girl he remembered, saying, “There was a child I really adored, but she moved to the States. Since she was adopted by good parents, it was for the best.”'

In other translations, kids asked Sehun "Hyung/oppa/ahjussi, what country are you from?" because of his blond hair. LOL

fourever_young 26th-Feb-2013 05:10 pm (UTC)
this is so cute.
I love the fact that they love kids cuz I myself adore kids very much.</p>

I read this from the other translation:
Sehun who had his hair dyed blonde received the odd question "hyung, what country did you come from?
lololol
he's from exoplanet, kid! duh!

ovary_acting 26th-Feb-2013 06:32 pm (UTC)
LOL that is so cute!
cee_90 26th-Feb-2013 05:13 pm (UTC)
LOL OP, your title is hilarious XD

I always love to see idols with kids :3 (and I always love to see the EXO boys without those horrible pants on stage :P)

while the presence of hd cameras are blatantly for pr sake, as long as the pros outweigh that i'm all for it tbh. since it's beneficial for both the kids and the boys (by that i mean an enjoyable learning experience for them), why the hell not.

and baekhyun carrying that bb girl is my new favourite thing ever ;_; sob.

This is so touching ;__;
fantaesticbaby 26th-Feb-2013 05:47 pm (UTC)
It's nice that they're helping out and I hope they continue to do so.
Working with little kids is awesome but it's bad for them when you have to leave, or if you stop, so I hope that EXO-K don't suddenly stop once SM have decided they've got enough publicity for it.

Crying at the title and the cut. You are a good job, OP.
norringtons 26th-Feb-2013 05:51 pm (UTC)

Sehun also looked around for a girl he remembered, saying, “There was a child I really adored, but she moved to the States. Since she was adopted by good parents, it was for the best.”
Did Sehun visit this center prior to that day? It would warm my heart even more.
It's good when idols take time to do charity work :)

Suho shared, “After eating, I should return and practice hard until 1-2 AM in the morning,”
I hope at least you are soon coming back if they are abusing you like this >:(
mentality34 26th-Feb-2013 06:41 pm (UTC)
the article says that it's their third visit to the center, so yup, he's been there before
cottonowl 26th-Feb-2013 06:25 pm (UTC)
