Boa Fulfills Fu Bao’s Dream, Becoming His Caretaker and a True Fan
BoA becomes Fu Bao’s manager, fulfilling her wish as a true fan. On July 25, BoA shared several photos on her Instagram account with the caption “I’m a successful fan.”
In the published images, BoA appears wearing a caretaker’s outfit in Everland, Yongin. She is seen happily participating in the photo shoot, carrying bamboo for Fu Bao to feed, accompanied by caretaker Kang Cheol Won.
BoA expressed her excitement by saying:
Everland, located in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do Province, is a huge theme park that includes a zoo, a sledding hill and a botanical garden among other facilities.
Recently, Everland caught the attention of netizens by announcing the search for part-time daily managers for Fu Bao. Even though there were only three positions available, a staggering 13,620 people applied, setting a record competition ratio of 4,540 to 1.
BoA, who found out about the part-time job as a day caregiver a little late, expressed regret in her story on July 11. He said, “It’s over yet? She could have been a diligent manager. He might even wander around if he is in front of Fu Bao. I could sing all the songs you want to hear. I found out about the job offer too late because I was so busy.”
Fu Bao, born in 2020, is the first panda born in South Korea through natural reproduction.
