PARK SEO JOON (with baby Hee Yong)
“I have a niece/nephew about the same age as Hee Yong, whom I met today. He’s at an age when he should be receiving so much love…it’s heartbreaking. I think it’s amazing and relieving to know that by just participating [in this campaign], I can contribute to the increase in adoption rates. I will watch over and show more interest in the issue of domestic adoption in the future. I hope that Hee Yong meets a good family and grows up healthy and happy. After time passes, until the day we are able to meet again, I sincerely pray that [Hee Yong] will always be happy.”
Park Seo Joon continues to improve and fans are hoping for more Philanthropic efforts from a truly moving and inspiring Asian actor.
A lot of Korean influencers and pop stars like Choi Si Won of Super Junior has used their influence to promote worthy causes that help improve lives. The impact of actors like Park Seo Joon in raising awareness should not be underestimated.
Thank you Oppa Park Seo Joon!
