    In the YouTube video posted on May 30, Jay went out shopping for gifts to give out to the homeless people near Seoul station.

    Today, at Seoul station, where a lot of homeless people are, we’ll be giving them a little gift,” he said in the video. “It might not be something expensive, but it could mean a little to them. So, we will be doing that for this family month.”

    In Korea, the month of May is always considered as “family month” in the country, mainly because of the three special holidays that occur in this month, including Children’s Day (May 5), Parents’ Day (May 8), and Teachers’ Day (May 15).
