The creator of the post continued to say, "I saw the news that Song Joong Ki was under self-quarantine back in July so I somehow got his email and sent him a letter. I asked him if he could film a 30-sec video with his cellphone while he was at home. He then replied asking us to send videos of the festival that we had in the past six years but then we didn't hear back for a while."
The netizen then said, "After about a month, he sent us a video. We, the volunteer members, were so touched. We had already told him we couldn't guarantee pay so we just wanted a cell phone video but he put in so much time and effort to make the video."
In the video, Song Joong Ki stated, "I want to first congratulate the Korea International Accessible Dance Festival on its sixth year. Although we are all going through a difficult time, the dancers' passion and efforts to be on stage along with everyone's love and interest will surely help us overcome this period."
