The stars participating in Haiti's sponsoring program admitted their feelings towards the Haiti earthquake, making the viewers feel more unfortunate about the disaster.
At 9pm on the 16th, MBC's News Desk relayed the situations of the entertainers, who were watching the news of the earthquake that is predicted to have resulted in at least 200,000 deaths, with possibly more anxiousness than anyone could imagine.
On this broadcast, the talents Shin Ae-ra, Joo Younghoon and wife Lee Yunmi, all known for sponsoring children living in Haiti, appeared.
Shin Ae-ra, upon hearing that the guest house that she stayed in three years ago (with the 10-year-old girl she has now been sponsoring for four years) had been destroyed by the earthquake, said that her "world seemed to go dark." Further, recalling the meeting with the little girl, she began, "The girl who would smile and laugh and shy away when I approached, her eyes filling with fear, how hungry she must feel..." but was unable to finish her words.
Joo Younghoon and Lee Yunmi, a couple that has also been sponsoring in Haiti, admitted that they "look at the children being rescued from the wreckage and worry that maybe our child is one of them" but added that they hope and "pray that we will be able to see the children again."
At this, the netizens left words of encouragement such as "I think I understand how it would feel to see the disaster as a parent" "I hope the children are safe" "I hope you get good news soon" and were unable to hide their anxiousness.

I feel so bad for them... It must be horrible to know your child is somewhere in the destruction but not know anything about what happened...
