EXO, B1A4, Block B and More Spotlighted for Thanking Fans with Gifts at ′Idol Athletics Championship′
It′s impossible to imagine an idol star with no fans, and so the fan service from idol stars is evolving.
The filming for MBC′s Chuseok special, Idol Star Athletics Championships took place on February 1 and 2, ending without any huge issues.
At this year′s Championships, B2ST, EXO, SHINee, Infinite, Block B and other idol groups, as well as rookie groups, such as LOVELYz, GFriend, and more were present, bringing their fandoms together to one place to cheer.
The Idol Star Athletics Championships is notorious for its more than 20-hours of filming. So it′s inevitable for both stars and fans alike to become tired during the long period of filming. Stars began preparing gifts for the fans, repaying fans for their love.
Block B presented its fans with a chicken mayo lunch set. Through its official Twitter, Block B tweeted, "You worked hard during the two days. Did you enjoy the meals and snacks that the members prepared? You never know when and how Block B prepare gifts, so remember to participate a lot! It′s quite late, so carefully return home. Homework : When you arrive home, send a mention to the members saying you got home. Thank you always."
B1A4 also participated in this stars-giving-fans-gifts movement. On this day, the B1A4 members presented fans with handwritten notes, steak, rice burgers and snacks. The notes that were given to the 200 fans caught attention for having different messages for each of them.
B1A4′s agency, WM Entertainment, stated, "The members always feel grateful for the fans, who have been with them for the past four, five years. It was the members’ own ideas to gift the fans this time as well. Despite their busy schedules, they wrote all 200 letters with different content, sharing their message for the fans."
EXO′s Tao gifted fans with chicken as well. He posted on his Instagram, "Did you eat the chicken deliciously? Thank you so much for today, EXO-L. Because you are here, I gain strength and can do better. EXO-L is jjang. I love you."
For their fans, 4minute, B2ST, BTOB, Roh Ji Hoon, and other Cube Entertainment artists personally wrapped 450 hamburger sets to give to the fans who came to the set. Many other stars also took care of the fans who came as support, creating a warm atmosphere during the long filming.
Although not very pricey, the gifts have moved the hearts of fans, knowing how much effort, thought, and time the stars have put into preparing them.
Through SNS, fans shared pictures of the gifts they received, quickly going viral.
Despite it being a difficult time for the body and mind with the long filming period, stars managed to bring happines to fans through their small but thoughtful presents.
