“Park Yuchun, the model and honorary ambassador of this project attended the event. He revealed his thoughts on participating on the recording of the audio book of “The Lonely Book”[Kor.: “Happy Book”] (writer: Kate Bernheimer) and received excited cheers from the people in attendance.” (via @parksheena6004)
Book description: When a wonderful new book arrives at the library, at first it is loved by all, checked out constantly, and rarely spends a night on the library shelf. But over time it grows old and worn, and the children lose interest in its story. The book is sent to the library’s basement where the other faded books live. How it eventually finds an honored place on a little girl’s bookshelf—and in her heart—makes for an unforgettable story sure to enchant anyone who has ever cherished a book. Kate Bernheimer and Chris Sheban have teamed up to create a picture book that promises to be loved every bit as much as the lonely book itself.
This book has been selected by our[Amazon] editors as one of the best picture books of May 2012.
SC bank first started the Good Library project in 2011 in Korea which seeks to support the visually impaired’s cultural needs. Season 2 kicked off in December last year which led to public participation of at least 60,000 people. A total of 200 people, including 100 Standard Chartered Bank employees, were selected and received professional guidance to take part in the production of the audiobooks and film.

Though its gone through its fair share of troubles, JYJ has managed to rise up as one of the most influential idol groups.
Not only has JYJ held several charity concerts, but the group is also famous for donating their paychecks, either from individual projects, or from concert tours.
The group also partnered with Elle Magazine and World Vision to create the ‘Mango Tree Project’ in 2011, which aimed to gift mango trees, symbolizing hope, to Sudanese children.
JYJ also made news when it donated 200 million won to the Thailand flood relief, helping students and schools who were affected by the devastating floods, as well as 600 million won to the 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami relief.
Thanks to these hugely charitable acts, JYJ and its members have been recognized as honorary ambassadors by several major organizations, including the Good Library Project, the Nuclear Security Summit, and UNAIDS.
As I’ve mentioned in yesterday’s blog post, there was an event that JYJ’s Yoochun was going to appear.
The place was COEX, South Korea’s leading big convention center.
The aim of the event was to build a “Voice Library” for the people who are unable to see.
The people who had registered earlier on the internet will go to the booth and took on the voice audition.
The judges are real voice actors.
It seems that there are a lot of voice actors in South Korea.
After taking the first round and passed, the participants will have to record their voice in a different booth.
Here, there’ll be a famous story in which they will have to read for recording and the voice will be stored to the Voice Library…is the case.
