Hello! It’s Kim Jong Kook from ‘Gym Jong Kook’ ㅎ I just wanted to say thank you once again for the unbelievably large amount of love and interest that has been shown on this new journey of mine!
Everyone! The fact is…it’s a bit embarrassing…but ㅎ I uploaded 5 videos this month and I decided to donate all of the profits from the channel’s revenue after deducting a (small) production cost. (I get a feeling that the views I received will be hard to achieve in the future ㅎㅎ.)
I was only able to reach these results the help of many different people. Since I received so much love and interest, I thought that it would be best to repay that by doing a good deed. I believe that this will be a good influence to all those who also love working out!
Everyone who has been supporting the ‘Gym Jong Kook’ channel participated in the donation so I hope that you feel rewarded and stay healthy by exercising!
