10 Jul – IU volunteers herself to be used for anti-bullying campaigns. The cute singer and ambassador for the prevention of school violence attended a fan signing event for the publication of "I'm Sorry" – a book about school violence at the Gwanghwamun Kyobo Bookstore in Seoul.
She stated, "I read the articles about school violence. I hope you will actively use me, the ambassador, to stop this issue."
During the event, IU also received the letter of appreciation from the Head Police Kim Gi-yong for her participation in the campaign. The singer-songwriter remarked, "After becoming the ambassador for the prevention of school violence, I think this is the first meaningful event I've been to. I'm happy that a book like 'I'm Sorry' was published. I hope adults and kids will read this book and take interest in stopping school violence."
"I'm Sorry" is a book written about the experiences that the 13 members of the Police Agency's Prevention of School Violence task team had about this issue. The book's profits will be donated to the Foundation for Preventing Youth Violence in order to help the victims of school violence.
