Singer IU, who has been active as honorary ambassador to preventing and eradicating school violence since February 2012, has recently been promoted from being an honorary police to a corporal!
On November 6, IU was promoted to corporal at a ceremony held in Seoul. The singer was recognized for her service of leading the prevention and eradication of school violence through various activities such as participating in the promotional signing session for the pamphlet on school violence prevention and appearing in the “Making a Safe Community” promotional video that aims to eradicate the four big evils of society. IU has also contributed greatly to the wide promotion of the emergency hotline 117 wherein students can call regarding cases of school violence.
“I don’t think there was any big thing that I’ve done but I’m grateful that they have promoted me. I will participate even more in the activities to prevent school violence and I will ensure that I do it without being shy,” said IU.
IU will hold the corporal rank for two years until November 5, 2016.
Keep up the good work, IU!
