Kangin Helps To Clear Up Flood In Seoul
Super Junior’s panda bear, Kangin (26; Kim Youngwoon) enlisted in the army last July and recently made a public appearance.
Currently in the military as a active-duty soldier, Kangin committed to supporting the flood recovery from July 28th to August 2nd.
According to a military official, the Hyungchon Village in Seoul was the area where Kangin and his group were assigned to. This area had been damaged the most from the recent storm and was put under intensive flood recovery operation; nearly 300-400 soldiers were assigned to support the citizens.
During this operation, soldiers had to go down to the basement and dig up the mud themselves without the use of equipment; the soldiers worked hard all throughout the weekend to help out in the recovery.
Meanwhile, Kangin, who had voluntarily enlisted after admitting guilt to his DUI and assault charges, didn’t hesitate in going into the dirty mud water and even took the initiative according to his fellow soldiers.
A military official stated, “In Kangin’s case, there was the possibility of some trouble because he is older than most of the soldiers who are also higher than him in ranking. But he’s getting along with the others very well and acts as the youngest soldier of the group”. He also added that he wishes that Kangin will safely finish whats left of his military service and succeed in making his comeback as a singer.
