Yongguk receives a letter from his World Vision sponsor child

Background info:

"Yongguk sponsored a child, Mim, through World Vision, an organization that helps alleviate poverty and hunger in many countries worldwide that may be affected by natural disasters or civil conflict,etc."

Dear Bang Yong Kook,

First of all, on behalf of Mim, we send you our earnest love.

She hopes you and your family are doing good. Mim is doing well with her family too.

She was delighted when she received the first letter you sent. For that letter, she wants to thank you. To make you feel happiness too, she is sending you some pictures. When you see them you will feel happy. 

She is in elementary school now. When Mim heard that someday you wanted to come visit Bangladesh, she became very happy. She loves to read Bangla books and plays dolls with her baby brother. She hopes that you will send her a letter again. 

May God bless you, and your family. She wants to thank you.

“Mim” (in Mim’s handwriting)

B.A.P Bang Yongguk, 'Leading Child Support Activies,' Warm Heart

Group B.A.P’s leader Bang Yongguk has a heart as warm as his face, making his surroundings happy.

Bang Yongguk, whose charm is his warm appearance and thick rapping voice, has registered as a member of organizations in both Korea and overseas that provide support in order to help children, thus showing support for children.

He is showing his warm heart as a supporting member of World Vision, Save the Children, and Unicef.

Bang Yongguk’s intentions are being conveyed to the people around him, and providing yet another good deed. Someone who met with him at SBS E! Entertainment News said, with a smile, “Bang Yongguk said he had a present. He suggested becoming a member of organizations that help children. I could not suppress my admiration at him saying that support is a present. Thanks to him, I am also doing meaningful work. His heart is very warm.

B.A.P, who is practicing and practicing to have better performances every time, is actively promoting their new song “Power.”

he's seriously my ideal man

Thanks to him, I've just sponsored a kid. He's really an inspiration; I want to live my life like him.

You know, I think he would honestly be happy to know that. He always seems to stress civic responsibility and being ethically minded as two qualities he likes best in his fans.

I'm reminded of this SST radio appearance (I think during their "No Mercy" promotions) where he wore his UNICEF hat. It's a minor detail, but taken in the larger context, it made me feel like he took his commitment to aid work seriously.

Was it this?

I also thought it was sweet of fans to provide UNICEF mineral water for them as part of their fan food support. It must have made Yongguk really happy.

this is a really good thing.
i hope BABYz find insparation to help those in need aswell.
It put a smile on my face to know UNICEF is doing well

tbh I think those fanclubs should sponsor children instead of buying all these idols expensive gifts

ok I thought this man could not get any more perfect but look at him, saving the world, one child at a time. Faith in humanity restored.


But seriously, Yongguk wae are you messing with my bias list? Now it seems completely wrong to have you as anything but #1

I really respect how BYG tries to use his influence (as limited to fans as it may be) for good. In one of the recently-translated interviews he mentioned that he tries to 'teach' his fans things because they tend to be from a younger age group, and though he was talking about quotes/music recs it sort of extends to this sort of thing as well, I feel.

I didn't know that about him, I now admire him for those qualities. I'm the same with my younger sister/cousins, I give them advice using my own experience and knowledge. Sometimes I just get an "okay...." response but hey at least I try.

He's def a good role model for his fans, they should be proud.

awww that's sweet

i have a sponsor child (my aunt paid for my membership as a graduation gift) but i always forget to write her and i feel really bad about it
goshipgurl 16th-Nov-2012 09:30 am (UTC)
I don't know what to say, he's such a good person. flawless, perfect, ..
I wish more idols would openly sponsor a child.
swhyeon1991 16th-Nov-2012 09:55 am (UTC)
Aww flawless leader ;__;
zobydabest 16th-Nov-2012 11:29 am (UTC)
It seems like he really cares and it's not just for show, same can't be said for others who look like they've been made to.
weerainbow 16th-Nov-2012 12:06 pm (UTC)
This reminds me I need to work harder to budget so I can keep money aside for giving like this. I've often thought of sponsoring a child but always held back. I need to move forward on it. Thanks to Yongguk for the inspiration and reminder.
in_noctem 16th-Nov-2012 12:15 pm (UTC)
Are you me? :D I've been finding it really hard to manage my allowance but this is such a huge motivation for me to set aside some money and eventually have enough to sponsor a child. I was aww-ing all over the place on the world vision and save the children sites. Guh I have such a soft spot for kids and animals.
purring_feline 16th-Nov-2012 01:20 pm (UTC)
I admire this man so much.
cairistiona 16th-Nov-2012 01:54 pm (UTC)
He is flawless. What a perfect bias. I admire him so much. <3

One day, when I am working, I hope to be able to do the same. :)
