The fans’ actions will surely make the idols very proud!
KPOP fans are usually known as “immature” kids who do nothing but buy albums and go to concerts. However, many fandoms are changing this prejudice by proving that they can do more than that. Voluntary work is one way through which fans think they can help the society for their idols.
Kang Daniel (Wanna One)’s Fans
This summer, temperatures have risen sharply and have risen to over 38 degrees in Korea. In recognition of this, Daniel‘s fan community helped raise money and buy 120 electric fans for the elder women in Busan. They also sent a letter, saying that through the little action, they wished to help the elderly overcome the harsh temperatures of this summer.
Yunho (TVXQ)’s Fans
Cassiopeia is also known for doing community service actively. Lately, the fan community in Japan helped raise 200 million won for elderly who lived alone in their hometown in the Korean New Year. By doing this, they wished to give the old people a richer and warmer holiday. This act was reported widely by the media, making Yunho extremely proud of his fans.
ARMY, BTS’s Fandom
In May 2017, BTS’s fandom in Malaysia organized a fundraising exhibition for charity activities, contributing to The Blind Malaysian Community, Malaysia’s Turtle Conserving Association and Malaysian Dream Home under BTS’s name.
In fact, BTS themselves also actively take part in community service just like their fans. UNICEF’s “Love Myself” campaign, which was represented by BTS, has made about 600 million won. Ever since, they have been helping Korean UNICEF financially in order to continue their activities.
EXO-L, EXO’s Fandom
EXO-Ls are best known for their charity works under their idol’s name. Xiumin’s fans donated approximately 2 billion won to different charities. Additionally, the fans also have great concerns about human rights and directly donate to the Gender Equality Organization and Women’s Protection Organization. Two members D.O and Baekhyun also appeared in the contribution section of a documentary about the female victims of World War II. Thanks to their fandom’s contributions, the whole group received certificate from Korea Children’s Fund as well.
BABY, B.A.P’s Fandom
B.A.P’s fans even built an organization named Helping Hands. This fandom also collaborated with another non-fundraising organization to build a school in Ghana for children who need education. Perhaps this idea came from B.A.P’s leader, Yongguk as he wished to build a school there to help the children in need. With this activity, the BABYs have helped their idol fulfill his dream after all!
Regarding the scale and size, every meaningful charity work that fans do under their idols’ name is probably the most amazing gift that they can give to their idols. Therefore, no doubt will the idols be extremely proud of their fans, won’t they?
