To commemorate EXO‘s third anniversary since their debut in 2012, EXO-L‘s have once again come together, this time to donate to Busan’s Comfort Women History Museum.
In recent years, the fandom culture in South Korea has shifted their gifts toward donations in the name of their idol groups. EXO-L’s are a prime example of this change as they have begun a fundraising initiative to prepare for their large donation to the museum.
Anyone can participate using the first free celebrity support app named “Fan Hearts” and can donate to the fundraiser until April 3rd when donations will close.
The Busan Comfort Women History Museum has faced many instances where they were almost forced to close their doors due to the lack of donations and funding as the museum does not charge an admission fee. The city of Busan withdrew their funding and the owner of the property raised the rent causing an increase in financial burden as well.
Following the new wave of generous donations from fanclubs, EXO-L’s decided to do something meaningful in the name of EXO and decided to donate money to the Busan museum.
Because of the simplicity and accessibility of “Fan Hearts,” many students who are struggling financially were able to participate in the heartwarming movement.
One of the regular donor’s of the museum thanked fans saying, “I’m a regular donor and I heard from the people that run the museum that they are always lacking in money because the museum is free of charge. They were looking for more donors and EXO-L did this..thank you so much..thank you ㅠㅠㅠㅠ”.
EXO-L’s will be celebrating EXO’s third anniversary on April 8th and are currently anticipating EXO’s first comeback as a 10-member group. Dedicated fans have even dug up leaked music video schedules, which gave rise to rumors that the new single would be called “Call Me Daddy.”
SM Entertainment has confirmed that EXO quickly finished up their music video shoot in three days, and are currently preparing for their second concert tour EXO Planet #2: Exo’LuXion which will kick off in Seoul on Saturday, March 7th. It has also been confirmed by member Lay that the group will be debuting their comeback track through their concert.
