DAY6’s Young K took part in idol reading project named Idols Read, Hearts Connect. His reading voice will be unveiled soon via EBS’ radio program Idol Books.
Idol Reads and Connect Hearts is designed to raise interest in Korean literature and to create a new reading culture as well as help the underprivileged youth. The proceeds from the project are donated to Foundation for the Rural Youth.

The piece that Young K read is titled “Paper Cut” by Choi Sang Hee, who won the 12th Seasonal Literary Awards. The book tells the mysterious tale about a high school student, who has a fateful encounter with a woman on a plane while traveling alone.
After successfully finishing the reading, Young K said, “I am happy that I got to read a good book through this opportunity. This is my first time reading but I have worked hard, so I hope people will like it when they listen to it.”
