Two members of South Korean boy group NCT Dream have made headlines as they visited Bantar Gebang landfill in Bekasi, West Java. 

NCT Dream members Jaemin and Jeno collaborated with nongovernmental organizations Good Neighbors International and Gugah Nurani Indonesia (GNI) Foundation to volunteer for humanitarian and environmental causes at the landfill. 

GNI fundraising manager Stephanie Dass said footage of the activities would be featured on the Global Dreams Come True Project ‘The Best Day’ show which was slated to air on South Korea’s MBC TV on Monday.

In addition to Bantar Gebang, Jaemin and Jeno would also visit several other locations in Bekasi, she said.

“We also aim to provide aid to underage workers in other locations,” Stephanie said. (rfa/kes)
