Actor Park Hae-jin was recently appointed an honorary firefighter.
The ceremony was held on Nov. 9 at the National 119 Rescue Headquarters' Metropolitan 119 Special Rescue Service in Namyangju, Gyeonggi Province.
The National Fire Agency made the appointment in recognition of Park's efforts to help firefighters. Park's support for firefighters started in 2016 when he visited a fire station to see working conditions after hearing from a fan whose father was a firefighter.
This year, Park modeled without fee for a firefighter calendar to raise money to help officers who have been injured or died on duty. He also starred in a video promoting fire safety for no fee. His agency covered the video's production cost.
One time I chaperoned a little kids field trip to a fire station and we brought them a really nice lunch so they let us all slide down the pole lol.
