Fans donate to the orphanage where X1's Lee Han Gyul grew up to celebrate his birthday

AKP STAFF

X1's Lee Han Gyul turns 20 (21 in Korean age) on December 7, and in celebration of his birthday fans made a donation to the orphanage he grew up. 

Lee Han Gyul grew up in an orphanage until he was 7. Even after he was adopted by his parents, he continued to return and volunteered throughout his school years. You can see his autographs and pictures in the office of the orphanage in the picture below. Donations include diapers and Christmas cookies for the children. 

Happy birthday Han Gyul!

I love this trend of donating to organizations that are important to idols on their birthdays! Often idols already have a lot of gifts from fans that they don't really need but by doing this fans are really making a difference!

Aww this is the cute heartwarming story we all needed in the midst of all this Produce101 controversy. You can tell Hangyul was raised well because he seems very understanding of his own situation. Saying he doesn’t blame his birth parents for abandoning him, they must’ve had their reasons. And he said he wants to be successful to repay his adoptive parents for giving him a life and family. This is a wholesome boy who deserves the world.
