SNSD’s Sooyoung visits Park Seung Il who suffers from ALS to cheer him up

SNSD’s Sooyoung visited Park Seung Il, a former basketball coach currently suffering from ALS(amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), and shared hope.

On January 7, a friend of Park’s uploaded several pictures under the title of “Sooyoung(SNSD)’s beautiful participation” on his online cafe, “ALS Shared with Park Seung Il.”

The pictures were taken when Sooyoung visited Park’s room in the hospital. In the pictures, Sooyoung is brightly smiling in a friendly pose with Park lying on the bed. She visited Park to say Happy New Year. This is her second visit for New Year’s Day since last year.

The friend of Park’s wrote, “SNSD’s Sooyoung helped us carry out our first plan for this year. Sooyoung said she was shy because she didn’t wear any makeup at first. However, she willingly posed for the camera, saying this is something she has to do if she can inform about ALS to more people. I really thank her kindness.”

It has been reported that Park is a special friend of Sooyoung’s. Sooyoung has often visited Park to cheer him up after he said he was a fan of Sooyoung’s.

Park debuted as a basketball player affiliated to KIA Motors in 1994 and was a basketball coach of the youth team by 2002. In 2003, ALS occurred in him, and he has lived under medical treatment until now.
