Jung Woo Sung speaks up in support of helping refugees

AKP STAFF

Jung Woo Sung spoke about his experience helping refugees.

He has been acting as the goodwill ambassador for the UN Refugee Agency, and he spoke about his experience on KBS 1TV's 'World Report'. He spoke about the most shocking experience he had and said, "It's hard to pick just one. But I was so shocked by the Rohingya refugee camps Bangladesh. Over 900,0000 people formed one city. When I saw it myself, it was a big shock."

He also spoke up against the opinions that we should not take in any refugees and said, "I do believe that we should hear these concerns. But the real question is whether these concerns are real. They say refugees are dangerous, but I believe it's been proven to be otherwise. SOme people say, 'We're also having hard times and are you telling us to help refugees?' That's not it. No life is better than the others. There are a lot of problems in this complicated world. The refugee crisis is one of them, so if you have something to spare, we should help."

I remember an old Korean man talking about how Koreans should be more accepting of refugee considering their past, it's crazy how younger kids forget what Korea used to be like. People need to be kind and helping. Koreans debating about refugees has been going on for a while now, especially those on Jeju, the issue is that they will say that the wrong of one refugee is on all the refugees which if you think about it is just being prejudice.

I think it is so sad that so much of the world are totally unaware of the genocide that the Rohingya people have become refugees to escape.

At least where I come from most people would be unable to even say what country they have fled from let alone what is happening to them.

There are currently over a million Rohingya who have been displaced or killed since 2016.

I am impressed that he has spoken out and raised a little bit of awareness for their current plight.
