More reports are trickling out and complementing the change in the fanclub culture where fanclubs are actively supporting and donating money to help the community as well as spreading awareness of Korean history.
According to the report, the History Museum of Japanese Military Comfort Women faced various crises for the eleven years since its opening to the point of closing due to lack of funds back in 2012 and again in 2013. At the time, the museum was able to continue services through donations received from students and citizens and assistance from City of Busan. However, it was once again reported that the donations have been cut short and the Museum is facing struggles in staying open.
With this knowledge, EXO-Ls decided to take a stand and be in the forefront to support the museum with the help of a free supporter application 'Fan Maum.' One EXO-L member stated, "Through my favorite idol's name, I wanted to do a good deed for the world as well as introduce the artists."
A fellow supporter of the museum commented on the post that was created on an online community board to bring light to EXO-L's good deed, expressing their thanks to the fanclub. The comment reads, "I'm a regular supporter of the History Museum of Japanese Military Comfort Women and the administrators have told me that they are lacking funds because the museum is free. We are currently trying to recruit regular supporters and to see that EXO's fan members are participating in this... We are very thankful.. Thank you fans ㅠㅠ."
Meanwhile, the campaign to raise 'Maum (Hearts)' will go on until April 3 and the proceeds will go towards the History Museum of Japanese Military Comfort Women.
