An insider talked about B.I's commitment to charity since his drug controversy.
As previously reported, B.I is suspected of purchasing marijuana and LSD from Han Seo Hee in April to May of 2016. He admitted to some of the suspicions during his interview with police in September of 2019, and his case is ongoing.
Since earlier this year, the former iKON member's good deeds and service to charity have been noted by fans. He was revealed to have anonymously donated 10,000 face masks to Chinese fans in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and 50,000 face masks to fans worldwide. Fans also shed light on his kind gesture towards one of his fans and his donations to child welfare organizations.
This past April, B.I also delivered 1000 masks to kids through the Angels' Haven for Children. An official from the charity organization stated, "He started doing charity since last November. Aside from what's been in the headlines, B.I comes in whenever his schedule allows."
One insider and acquaintance of B.I expressed, "Before the controversy erupted, B.I would go to the orphanage without telling anyone even when he was receiving love as a member of iKON. He spent time giving presents to the children and teaching them about music. It's a pity that people think B.I is doing volunteer work because of self-reflection [due to the drug controversy]. He does his best every time he goes to volunteer."
