On July 16, Dreame, the company that hosts Dreame rice wreath donations, sent an official to the Korea Association of the Community Child Center (KACCC) to represent Kim Jae Joong and deliver the rice wreaths.

[TRANS] Jjoongie is cute~~ He called up father and mother today and told them not to watch drama (Dr. Jin) because their hearts would ache. So I thought if he’d be beaten up too much (in Dr. Jin)…ㅠㅠ
[TRANS] I cried even twice because of Jjoogie’s look, acting and the lines today… I told Jjoongie about it and also that I had cried even before, then he said he filmed the scene quickly because they had no time. But he was able to be immersed in it! Woah~ Jjoongie… I sink into your drama without even realizing it. It’s so fun to watch Dr. Jin on time every week~ hehe.
