Much thanks to Honeyeee of Love501 for translating this piece of news that came out yesterday before the ThanKYU with Triple S fan meeting.


[News] Prior to enlistment, Witty words from Kim Kyu Jong’s fans “2 Years in the Department of Defence”

English Translation: Honeyeee @

With an overflowing sense, SS501 Kim Kyu Jong’s fans cheers for Kim Kyu Jong’s enlistment with Rice Flowers.

Kim Kyu Jong’s fan meeting was held on the 3rd of this month at the auditorium of Yonsei University in Seoul. The fan meeting on this day marks the last event since the asia tour fan meeting which began last February and is also the last event for Kim Kyu Jong and his fans to get together before his enlistment to the army in July.

The rice flower support that were sent in to cheer for Kim Kyu Jong’s Fan Meeting totals up to 1.33 ton. Starting from Korea, China, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and so on, fandom from a total of 7 countries has participated. The 1.33 ton worth of rice flower can feed about 11,000 of malnourished children, and will be donated to malnourished children and other underprivileged people as appointed by Kim Kyu Jong.

Kim Kyu Jong’s Korean fans have also sent in rice flower for his fan meeting in December 2010 and his musical ‘Goong’ in September 2011. 3 ton rice flower received has been donated to Jeonju Deok Jin Gu and Seoul Kang Bok Gu Food Market.

Fans of Kim Kyu Jong gave him encouragement for his enlistment through the rice flowers along with messages such as “2 years in the Department of Defence, anymore longer than that is no no no way!” , “Throw away all the rubber shoes in the world from yesterday!, We need you no matter when is it♡ I Love You Kyu Jong♡” and so on.

Note from HoneyeeeI’m not sure on the rubber shoe part, please correct me if I’m wrong! ^^

Err, how much is 1.33 ton of rice in kilograms, anybody knows? Could that much rice really feed 11,000 children? Not 1,100? Sorry for the questions but I'm rather surprised about the estimated number of people that the rice could feed^^ I'm more familiar with the metric system, but that figure is quite awesome!
