MAMAMOO‘s Solar has made no secret that she loves kimchi. Well, Solar pulled a Santa Claus this year and joined forces with Dongdaemun Senior Welfare Center and social worker Jung Soo Bin to donate ONE HUNDRED 10KG (roughly 22 pounds) boxes of kimchi. As if that wasn’t incredible enough, Solar personally delivered some of the boxes!
Off she went to start her deliveries!
Her first stop was to an elderly gentleman’s home. He was very happy to receive a visit and the gift of kimchi from the lovely Solar. During her visit to his home, she noted that he was a veteran of the Korean War and asked him to take care of himself and get some rest.
Her next visit was to a third-story rooftop home, and she carried the box all by herself!
Ever the sweetheart, Solar not only delivered the kimchi but also showed concern for his health, reminding him to take care. She also warned him that the box was heavy, but he reassured her not to worry as despite his advanced age he was still very strong!
She seemed to make a big impression on her as he even followed Solar and her crew down the stairs to make sure they were okay as they left and they bid goodbye to one another!
After a long goodbye with the kindly old grandfather figure, Solar kept soldiering on with her deliveries.
As she marched on with her deliveries, she mentioned how meaningful it was to be able to share her favorite kimchi with others.
(Although her editor notes that while it’s meaningful, the boxes are still very heavy!)
Her next delivery was to a sweet elderly woman who lived alone.
After Solar gave her the kimchi, the woman invited her in to have a seat and they chatted a bit. Solar asked if she liked kimchi to which she replied, of course, she does!
There were many family photos on this grandma’s wall. Solar asked if her family visits her often, though unfortunately, this warm-hearted woman reveals she doesn’t get to see her family as often as she’d like because they’re all busy with their jobs and life. Her words made Solar reflect on the fact that she doesn’t visit her own mother very often, and she and the grandma shared a sweet moment together.
Unfortunately, they weren’t able to stay as long with other deliveries to do. The grandma was so happy to have received a visit, she pulled Solar into a great big hug!
In the end, Solar revealed her gratitude for being able to deliver some of the items personally and shared that meeting with them and being able to talk to them made her think of her own family.
Solar is incredible and we can’t help but feel deeply moved by her generosity and kindness. We’re sure that the elderly she visited were thankful for her thoughtfulness and time.
