Allkpop.com has recently posted an article explaining in detail about the honorable event:
According to Pledis Entertainment, NU’EST, who recently made a comeback with their first mini-album ‘Action‘, are the new ambassadors of the Korea Scout Association.
The boys became the official endorsement models of the association on July 18 at the appointment ceremony in Yeoido. The Korea Scout Association is the national Scouting association of South Korea, and it aims to improve adolescents as citizens.
A representative from the Korea Scout Association stated, “As the NU’EST members are in their teens themselves and have been sending strong messages to adolescents in their debut album ‘Face‘ as well as their new album ‘Action‘, we decided that it would be fitting to appoint them as the ambassadors of the scouts, who support social contributions. We’re looking forward to their large role as the spokespersons for adolescents.”
The scouts exist in 131 countries across the world and include 30,000,000 members. South Korea alone has 370,000 active scouts.
