A young entrepreneur is under the media spotlight for his charitable business venture!


Lee Ji Woong, a man who founded 'D'LUV' with the aim of building schools and health care facilities in underdeveloped countries like Cambodia, wrote on his Facebook, "I heard stories about underprivileged female students last winter. I saw on the news that [the students] use toilet paper or the soles of their shoes as a substitute for sanitary pads, and I decided to make these pads myself." 


Lee further revealed that he has created several prototypes and is in the process of improving the quality of his product and making them as affordable as possible. He even submitted his product for review to the Korea Food and Drug Administration (KFDA).

Lee determined on his Facebook post, "There were people that whispered that I'm some sort of pervert and I even met a middle-aged man who said he was embarrassed for me but I will keep at this work. Please contact me if you can lend assistance in any way regarding the areas of trade, design, and the production process.

    Sflr, but imo it seemed to me as if you just had to find a comment from someone going against the general support gushing from the rest of the comments to criticise. I'm not being narrow-minded, I'm being cynical. The one who's narrow-minded here is you, who can't accept other people's opinions and lash out at them.

    At first I thought he was some type of weird pervert too, it's engraved in my Asian mindset that women shouldn't talk about periods. I didn't even know what they were until like 7th grade when my friend starting bleeding. I'd never even heard about it from my mom, apparently she had kept her pads hidden inside a deep corner in our bathroom, like under the sink, like under some toilet paper, in a walmart bag.

    really, a pervert? the real pervs are the people who have this narrow minded way of thinking that pads are in some way taboo or dirty. Bless this man; you dont see a lot of people who do things like this.

    really? the fact that women have periods and are in need of pads is weird? The fact that he cares about other women who are in need is weird? The inability to afford sanitary products is actually a pretty large issue in some places, and when someone attempts to do something about the problem, he's to be called weird just because he's a guy? Now that's the kind of narrow minded thinking we really don't need more of in this world.

    Really, all the OC said was it was "weird". Way to jump to conclusions that he's (She said "IT") being called weird because he's a guy? What you said is indeed "narrow minded thinking we really don't need more of in this world", but all the OC said was that it felt weird to her. I've no idea how to say this but it's sickening how you target others by assuming what was left unsaid and not considering their backgrounds? I have no idea where you're from and how things are like in the Western countries but the Asian mindset is alot more conservative. Pads and menstruation, these are private issues that some don't feel comfortable discussing with other girls, let alone guys. It's definitely amazing that a man is willing to go to such lengths to help those in need but it still does feel a little foreign and awkward to me knowing that a man is involving himself with issues like this. I'm not going to assume anything about what the OC might have meant in her comment, but this is just my own point of view. Don't be so goddamn quick to assume and condemn so you can show yourself standing up for something we all know is a real issue.

    Really? You really think I said all that merely to "show myself standing up"? Fine, I'll be equally narrow minded, is that what you want? I gave my opinion on her opinion, and you're giving yours on mind.

    That' amazing thought. Really this person has great thoughts. Proud of him. There are many areas all over the world where women's are still facing problems during their menstrual cycles as they cannot afford them.
