The heavy rains in South Korea have prompted many donations from celebrities to ease the burdens of those affected by this weather disturbance. However, K-Drama actor Jo Han Sun went a different route and offered his physical presence and helping hands for flood relief efforts.
Congressman Lee Ki In, a member of the Gyeonggi Provincial Council, worked with Han Sun on some flood recovery volunteer work in an underground parking lot of an apartment building in Unjoong-dong, Bundang-du, Seongnam-si, Gyeonggi-do.
The congressman shared photos of Han Sun on his Facebook account, one of him holding on to the tool he used to help remove mud from the first and second basement floors and install barricades to hold off the water that may flow in again.
Another photo is of him standing in the basement parking area.
Congressman Lee praised Han Sun, who continuously “worked without straightening his back, and encouraged residents.” Netizens also praised Han Sun for his good deed, admiring his tenacity to work all day.
I worked alongside him there. He left such a deep impression on me after I saw him keep a smile on his face even though he looked exhausted to the point of passing out. I hope that his next work hits daebak.
It’s not only his looks that are amazing.. but his quiet act of good deeds!
I’m a local of the site he helped. He’s a great neighbor and such a great person. I’m so thankful for his efforts. I hope that we all overcome this together and that his next piece of work is successful.
I think that his kind act will spread throughout our society as a piece of positive influence. These pictures where he’s covered in mud and deep in the flooded basements will hopefully encourage all of us to overcome this together and become stronger as a society. Thank you!
This is probably harder work than just donating money. Donating money’s great and all but how many are actually willing to get dirty like this?
