Terminally Ill International K-pop Fan Heads to SK



Donica Streling, a 15 year old terminally ill American girl from New York will be going to Korea.

Donica became a big fan of K-pop and Korean dramas two years ago and K-pop gives her comfort. She dreamed about one day traveling to Korea and meeting a K-pop star. Her favorite K-pop stars areTaemin from SHINee and Siwon from Super Junior.


A Canadian businessman who was impressed by the care taking of Donica’s grandmother at a hospital decided to sponsor her visit to Korea and pay for all the expenses. According to some reports, SM Entertainment learned of Donica’s story and will help her dreams come true.

She is learning Korean and will be traveling to Korea on June 16th.

Very heartwarming. Donica, fighting.







YT comments are INSANE.

only kpop fans can start wank about a terminally ill 15 year old going to see suju and shinee.

Out of all people she picks them though...

If SMe allows her to meet them, I will give huge props to them. It would be a good PR move, but also a good humanitarian move.
dorkiilove 30th-May-2012 03:53 am (UTC)
on the description of the video it says "SM already told that they also want to meet her and will help the matter accomplished."

I hope she'll reach her dream~ <3

Anyway, all those k-pop "fans" hating on her need to shut up tbh.
Whatever happened to class?

am i the only one who thinks it's reckless to send a terminally ill person to another country on a 14+ hour flight
odd_fish_stick 30th-May-2012 04:05 am (UTC)
i mean, i'm very happy for her of course. I hope she gets to meet them and make great memories, but also manages to improve and live beyond expectations
active3minutes 30th-May-2012 04:05 am (UTC)
i'd rather not read the youtube comments, hope its not jealous fans wondering why she gets to go and they don't.

so happy for her honestly, i really do hope she can meet them since it's her dream.
odd_fish_stick 30th-May-2012 04:08 am (UTC)
yt comments are mostly positive, there's wank over some people saying they're jealous and other people calling them out etc
shanny_w 30th-May-2012 04:05 am (UTC)
Have a safe trip gurl! Don't give a damn about the angry bitches on yt. They're just jelly cause you're gonna meet their oppa.

Omg poor bb ;~; I hope Taemin frenches her and makes all her dreams come true!

eishastan 30th-May-2012 04:27 am (UTC)
Good for her! and btw i'm not even going to go to read comments on youtube, i have enough with some idiotic comments in this post.
aleexnews 30th-May-2012 04:28 am (UTC)
"This statement may put me in hell but, who else wishes they were sick enough to meet their all time favorite k-pop stars?"

Um W T F. Really ppl don't go near youtube comments cause they're a fucking mess. Happy for this girl, she seems very sweet and I hope her oppars take good care of her and that she has fun (:
rawbabyoctopus 30th-May-2012 06:40 am (UTC)

miki_831 30th-May-2012 04:32 am (UTC)
I'm happy she gets to meet them before she passes. I hope she enjoys her time in Korea.
palebluedot09 30th-May-2012 04:37 am (UTC)
I'm not even going to read the comments.
Enjoy yourself girl! Hope you get to meet all of your faves.
xxkumorixx 30th-May-2012 04:40 am (UTC)
Its good that she gets to accomplishes her dreams before her "time" comes. At least she can say she got the best experience of her life now. :D
setsuna16 30th-May-2012 04:40 am (UTC)
I'd rather not look at the youtube comments. They'll probably just make me rage.

This girl is having her dream come true. I am happy for her.
cagallisakura 30th-May-2012 04:43 am (UTC)
I hope she isn't going on one direct flight. It was really a pain cuz it was so long so I'm hoping for her health that she's getting stops.

I'm happy that she's getting a final wish like this!
mangomuffins 30th-May-2012 04:43 am (UTC)
i wish people would have some respect for this girl who just wants to have her wish come true! but when were youtube comments ever a source of intelligent thinking anyway
plantbottle 30th-May-2012 04:54 am (UTC)
wow @ the people hating on her. Are you serious? C'mon now, that's all sorts of low.
veevalkyrie 30th-May-2012 04:57 am (UTC)
Oh God I almost cried T_T
I hope she could meet Teamin and Siwon!! XD
sxechiru 30th-May-2012 05:02 am (UTC)
God bless that girl, fer sure Siwon will send her off with a prayer X) Good choice of oppas to meet. How sweet to have such a dream come true.
brianathebard 30th-May-2012 05:03 am (UTC)
That's a really sweet and awesome move on the businessman's part, and I'm so glad she's going to be able to go on a dream trip! I hope she has an great time.
fatbom 30th-May-2012 05:17 am (UTC)
