VIXX and STARLIGHTs come together to help a 15-year-old suffering from muscular dystrophy

VIXX and their fanbase STARLIGHTs came together to help a 15-year-old boy.

Daehwan's mother started a Twitter account for her son Daehwan who suffered from muscular dystrophy. He was so weak that he could not even sit in the wheelchair and had spent his life lying in bed, but his favorite group was VIXX and he would always make sure to watch them on TV and ask his mother to put their songs on. His mother, desperate to get her son to see his favorite group before it was too late, started a Twitter account mentioning the boys' Twitter in hopes of some attention.

Well, her tweet did catch attention. On February 4th, she tweeted, as she had before, to the official VIXX account, asking, "Can our Daehwan see the concert? He can't even sit in a wheelchair right now, but I want to show him VIXX... and a VIXX concert before it's too late... He really wants to see it." 

Her tweet caught the attention of STARLIGHTs, who came together to start a fund so Daehwan could have a safe journey to and from the concert venue without being overwhelmed by the crowd, to prepare a bed so Daehwan could watch the concert on it, and to help the family economically as well. Jellyfish Entertainment also got involved in the helping, and company employees came to check how Daehwan was and also to check how they could accommodate him in the concert.

Daehwan's dream came true when enough money was collected to get him to the concert safely. He got to watch VIXX perform, and even got to see them face-to-face as they came to greet him! 

His mother tweeted, "Today is a day our Daehwan achieved one of his dreams~♥ He was so happy... He said he memorized it in his heart, his eyes, and his head... We couldn't take photos on our phone and they took a photo for us, and we just got it today.. Everyone~~ Thank you so much again..."
