On May 8, the band attended the appointment ceremony held in Seoul, and was given a plaque appointing it the honorary ambassador for the organization.
Supporters of CN Blue′s school in Africa as well as the press and officials were also present.
Lee Jong Hyun added, “At first, I thought I was the one doing the helping, but later it felt like I was the one receiving the help. I′ve been realizing how beautiful this world is.”
“We′re happy to be here for this honor and we′ll work hard in the future,” Kang Min Hyuk and Lee Jung Shin said.
CN Blue has been active as the honorary ambassador for the Hantol Nanum Festival, a teenage volunteer work festival hosted by KFHI since 2010, and last year the band donated part of its profits to build a school in Africa.
“We were touched at how the children were smiling while studying at CN Blue School, and it felt like we were in a dream,” Jung Yong Hwa commented. “If we get the chance, I hope we can go to see the school in person. I want to sing Loner there, and play basketball and soccer with the children.”
Lee Jung Shin said, “I saw a photo of children standing in front of a sign that read ′CN Blue School′, and I was proud to see the students eat and study there.”
Jung Yong Hwa even said about the song he had written for CN Blue School, “I tried to include hopeful messages in the lyrics. We′re far away, but I wanted to show how we are of the same heart and how we′re all friends.”
Kang Min Hyuk said in thanks, “I know how our fans, who come to our concerts, have been a big help, and I want to use this opportunity to thank them again.”
CN Blue will next hold its world tour concert in Hong Kong from May 10-11.
