After the appointment ceremony, Tiger JK, Yoon, and Bizzy interacted with babies under 1 year old at a reception hall in Seoul.

“Upon seeing the innocent faces of the babies, I felt happy and bad at the same time,” said Yoon, adding that she would do her best for those waiting to be adopted.

The Social Welfare Society was established in 1954 by the Korean government to promote the welfare of Korean War orphans. With the aim of protecting abandoned and neglected children, SWS works on adoption, welfare for children, disabled children and senior citizens. It also runs rehabilitation centers for children with special needs and shelters for single mothers.
