Messages of condolence are coming from various stars following the tragic earthquake in Nepal.
Actor Lee Jung Jin, whose photo exhibition to raise money for libraries in Nepal opened on April 26, expressed his concern on his Instagram page, writing, “I heard the sad news from my Nepalese friends… We are currently holding a photo exhibition to raise funds for Nepalese libraries… I hope there is no further damage.. I will go there as soon as possible..”
Broadcaster Oh Sang Jin, currently in Nepal doing NGO work, also wrote the following on his Instagram page:
“I am unharmed and okay, everyone.
I am currently in a village in the Bharatpur region of Nepal doing NGO work. The children and I were very surprised when, around lunchtime, the ground began to shake. While there is very little damage to this area, Kathmandu, a city only 20 minutes from here by plane is in a very serious situation. Images of buildings collapsing are continuously being shown on the local news, and while rescue efforts are underway, there are currently over 1,000 estimated victims. The majority of locals are also coming to open areas in case there are any aftershocks.
Please send your support and prayers for the safety of the people of Nepal. The airport is currently closed down, but I will do all I can to come back safely soon. I would like to sincerely thank everyone who has been worried about me.”
Hearing of Oh Sang Jin’s safety following the earthquake, actress Lee Chung Ah also took to Twitter to voice her relief and support for the people of Nepal, tweeting, “Although we are not close, my heart sank when I heard that Oh Sang Jin was in Nepal.. luckily he says he is unharmed. To those in Nepal worrying for the safety of their family and friends… stay strong. I’m praying for you.”
