Han Geng, Always Keeps His Word, and Does Things Quietly!


One more time, I genuinely and deeply know why I love him, and why I want to be a member of Gengfans.

I have to say, depressing…sad…worry…frustrated…etc…might be the words for these days’ news…disasters… earthquakes…tsunamis…nuclear crisis…

These days, many celebrities and those media people are talking too much…some are genuinely concerned, pray for lives, some are so worried, some spread rumors, some clarify rumors, some’s remarks are just annoying and controversial…some…Ah, getting tired of all these sentiments…so depressing…

BUT, there is one person…he’s been so quiet…as Gengfan, we never expect anything from him…to some point, we even feel glad that he keeps silent…

However, all the sudden, a fan account posted at Gengbar attracts our attention   http://tieba.baidu.com/f?kz=1025784536 with a title just like all other fan accounts on gengfans’ charity activity…but open it up, and reading to the third paragraph…we find a name, Han Geng. YES! He joined this activity with Gengfans just couple days ago, on March 13! No media, no information leaked out before, nothing, just him, couple of his staffs, and his car with full of gifts for kids and their family.

After this fan account was posted for a while, Han Geng finally updated his miniblog. From here, I will stop talking, just translate his miniblog post and the fan account, so you will know what exactly happened.

Han Geng: Participating in such activity will allow us genuinely understand more about what they need and what they’ve been longing for! Don’t hesitate or wait anymore, do whatever we can, take action, begin with a bit by bit!


Unlike some other stars showing their charity pics, the focus of his pic is not him, it’s the school, the people contributing to the school, the kids, the awards received by these loveable kids for their study. I think his remark here not only points to this particular activity, this is what he wants to say about what happened recently as well, no matter what, let’s try our best, and do something to help!

Fan account at Gengbar

The first paragraph introduces where they went, and the general situation of these four small primary schools in mountain area.

The second paragraph extends appreciation to Gengfans who donated money and participated and those who helped Gengfans in this activity.

I started translation from the third paragraph.


About this activity, we also want to extend appreciation to someone special – Han Geng.

Yes, thank you, Han Geng, for taking time from your busy schedule, to be with children, with Gengfans, spending an unforgettable charity day.

Han Geng said, he’s always wanted to join Gengfans doing charity, but the work schedule is too intense, he was not able to be with us. Whenever he saw our charity activities, he would feel so moved. Always wanted to take time with us, really doing it in person.

This time, he saw the charity activity which was posted as the top line at Gengbar, found out the situation of these schools, so he asked his staffs to find out the time and location from Gengbar.

Han Geng had dubbing work to do at that night (dubbing for DWS movie), also, Hebei is not very close to Beijing, but he still tried his best, got rid of  all the obstacles, keep his daytime on March 13 for this charity activity, for his true heart of “wanting to do charity with Gengfans” and “doing it in person”.

Before going, he kept telling me not to reveal the information that he was going to come, he just wanted to try his best and do something, not as an idol, just as an ordinary man, a volunteer like everyone else. So we didn’t tell anyone before the activity, including the gengfans who participated and the schools.

On March 13, Han Geng drove a few hours from Beijing to the primary schools in Zanhuang county, he brought new desks, fresh fruits, tasty food.

No glittering dress up on stage, He appeared in very simple clothes just like a boy from neighborhood.

In this isolated mountain area, he is not an idol, not a star, Gengfans are not fans, are not star followers. We are all members of this volunteer group of dozens of Gengfans.

We moved the desks, distributed gifts to children. He also personally delivered the books to each head of these schools, he posted the Hebei provincial map and China map onto the wall of each classroom.  

 We pledged all together, “On the way to do charity, there are you, and us.”

Looking at children’s eyes of full of purity,

Looking at their satisfying look when eating,

Looking at their big laugh when playing games,

At that moment, fatigue’s just gone.

After taking picture with children, Han Geng drove to Dashimen school which was in the most difficult situation among the four.

There are 14 kids studying here, and each household only has small piece of land, they worked so hard for entire year, when the harvest time came, wild boars came out, they suffered big loss…

Han Geng brought rice, flour, and oil to these 14 kids’ home. Before he left, he repeatedly told us, we should come here more, come to visit these kids!

Because he had dubbing work at night, we could only spend a few hours together for charity, but again, on the way to do charity, there are you, and us! This day finally comes…it’s short, but unforgettable.

We know, you are extremely busy, but you still squeeze time to visit the children living in mountain area.

Perhaps, you will be even busier in future, but, Han Geng, you can rest assured that we will be your shadow to fulfill your “heart for charity”.

Hope we could gather more or even all the power of Gengfans, to make our charity practice even better.

On the way to do charity, we are walking together! Fighting!!!

They were playing game together…in this game, you have to hold the shoulder of the person in front of you…my point is, whose hands those were on his shoulder!!!! Admire T_T

Ha! Love this man so so so much!

The most beautiful smile ever!!!!


From 4:22~~~~

Han Geng is person who always keep his word, because all his wishes are so sincere, he genuinely want to be the person as he says, he will do all his best to fulfill those wishes and dreams, sooner or later.

Han Geng, again and again, from the bottom of my heart, I want to say, I love you!

You are my idol, you are my role model, you are my sunshine!!!

    Thank you Bristlegrass for the post. Han Geng, it is because of your QUALITY that I follow you, the only one celebrity that I have followed, and differently.

    “Unlike some other stars showing their charity pics, the focus of his pic is not him, it’s the school, the people contributing to the school, the kids, the awards received by these loveable kids for their study.” Thanks Bristlegrass, this sentence makes me reflect a bit…

    • bristlegrass says:

      ^^ Yeah, I may be fond of some other celebrities, but I will change one to another for a short period of time…until I find Han Geng…before, I couldn’t even imagine I would say Love to a celebrity, to a person I’ve never met…now, I keep saying this word to him, hehe…just cannot help~

  2. mish says:

    Bristlegrass, this is a great summary of the event. So touching, it brings tears to my eyes. Han Geng and Gengfans truly bring beauty to the world. Han Geng thinks himself an ordinary person so he does not put on air. He is grateful for his fans and anyone who helped him because he does not take them for granted. I think that is why he always did charity quietly because it is something that he thinks he should do and like to do and would not want it to become publicity or something else.
    Actually he did some charity last year when he “disappear” from public eye without anyone knowing too. Some other fanclub visited an orphange and heard from a little girl in there that Han Geng visited them last Feb. http://tieba.baidu.com/f?ct=335675392&tn=baiduPostBrowser&sc=7579127633&z=721845584&pn=0&rn=30&lm=0&word=%D5%C5%BA%B2#7579127633

    • bristlegrass says:

      Thanks a lot for this link! ^^
      For the visitors who don’t read Chinese, this is actually a story written by a fan of another celebrity…they paid a visit to an orphanage, met a girl who likes Han Geng so much, and she said, Han Geng came to visit the kids here sometime before, but she had to be in the class, so didn’t get a chance to see him…so we know, Han Geng did some charity activity by himself…we would never ever know about it, if this little girl didn’t mention, and this fan of other celebrity didn’t write it down…he might has done more than we know.

    “You are my sunshine but not my only sunshine, you make many happy when skies are gray… ”

    A little change of the song might be more appropriate, hehe… ^_^

  4. S2X says:

    aww, my eyes actually got teary reading this! what both Gengfans and Han Geng did is so heartwarming! with so many bad news around the world these days, hearing about such kindness and generosity is what we need to believe that there’s still hope in this world, that there are still people who care about others. although i know it’s very hard for it to happen, i truly wish that someday we, the international Gengfans, could also gather and do something like this, not just to impress Han Geng or to hope that he will show up, but simply for the pleasure of knowing that we can make a difference in someone else’s life. doing charities is something that should be done sincerely from one’s heart, without any second intentions or motivations. and this is exactly how Han Geng is, truly an angel with the purest of hearts! ❤

    • bristlegrass says:

      Yes, although I do experience so much different kinds of feelings and know so much things which I could never expect before knowing Han Geng, I do feel my heart become more purified whenever I watch him closely. No matter in what way, we Gengfans would like to have good deed, it should come from our pure and simple heart. He does make me a better person!

  5. Sarah says:

    Speechless…then crying…
    Hangeng is Hangeng…
    He’s just a human…
    and I love this human because of his sincerity
    Thanks for all Gengfans…
    Thank you so much for sharing…

  6. followurdestiny says:

    So proud of our shining star and to be a gengfan.
    Caring, sincerity and from the heart – it’s really touching to see, to read…
    Hope to be able to do more in the future as well 🙂 – it does inspire one to
    do something as well, eventhough the intention is there it’s not always
    easy to actually do it. I’m happy he could fulfill his wish/his promise …
    Thank you for sharing! Fighting! <33

    • bristlegrass says:

      Yes, we know he always have that intention to join Gengfans for charity activity, we know it is not easy for him, so we didn’t really expect it ^^ Doing charity has become one of Gengfans’ good traditions since the first time He encouraged us at his cy long time ago. What we have done has been encouraging him, and what he did now is stronger encouragement and inspiration to Gengfans. Again, we can truly feel that Han Geng and Gengfans are together!

  7. syamimi says:

    well,feel touched and crying..
    gengfans is so special..
    seriously,day to day,i feel proud to be one of this big family..
    like hangeng said ‘gengfans is the best fan ever..’
    just like him..he is the shiniest star..!

    • bristlegrass says:

      “Gengfan is the best fan ever..”

      Haha, whenever he says that, I feel some kind of pressure…^^ since I’m not sure that, as a self-identified gengfan, if I deserve such compliment from him…anyway, Gengfans sincerely love him so much, respect him so much, getting such compliment from the one we love truly make us want to do better, hehehehe…

  8. CN White says:

    I have been stalking this blog since.. well I don’t remember..
    Anyway I’ve always felt uneasy when a celebrity do charities/donation publicly, I don’t know why but maybe it’s because of our religion which says “What your right hand spent [in charities or in good in general], your left hand shouldn’t know about it” Don’t know if I make it clear but I hope you got what I mean.
    When I read about this event my first thought was “It’s Hangeng girl !” yeah you can’t expect less from this amazing man who loves to do this as a simple man away from the lights, shines and press. And when you think you can’t love this man anymore you fell more and more !
    Gengfan you know you are the best right?
    I am really touched and don’t know what to say anymore.
    Thank you and God bless you all.

    • bristlegrass says:

      Thanks a lot for leaving comments here ^^

      No matter what kinds of background we come from, as long as we are mature enough, we can see the sincerity, kindness and true heart of a person over time. One of the most important things I highly appreciate Han Geng is that, his good qualities as a person can be widely recognized by people or human beings in general, with little cultural barrier, national barrier, gender barrier, age barrier, so on and so forth…which means we human beings have some goodness in common, that goodness can bring us to communicate with each other and understand each other better.

  9. i’m really happy to find this blog 🙂

    after read this, i love him more
    he’s sooo inspiring 🙂
    i hope he can be my husband someday LOL
    keep fighting, gege… i know you can do everything… wo ai niii…

    • bristlegrass says:

      Thanks for dropping by ^^
      A sad fact for all Gengfans is…this man is going to be someone else’s husband… 😦

  10. Mandy says:

    Because it’s for Han Geng, no matter what nationality they are, true Gengfans will believe in Han Geng because he says so.

    “Wait For You, Han Geng” activity has begun headed by Nike in Korea~

    Chinese translation here – http://tieba.baidu.com/f?kz=1027830893

    • trueblue says:

      Hehehe…I just read that post. It is so heartwarming to see Nike taking on the huge task and responsibility to let Korea know of the existence of soloist Han Geng and not SJ Han Geng when he eventually goes back there to hold his activities…..!!
      She is preparing the road for KoreanRice and their mind-sets to receive Han Geng when he re-enters Korean Entertainment scene…
      She stressed on the fact that Han Geng is an independent artist and will come back as one who deserves all the respect and merit as such..
      As we all know, Han Geng will always keep his word. He never utter useless or meaningless words if they are not for such purposes..It all depends on the when, what and how of things as they unfold…..!! But he will fulfill his word to the best of his ability……..That is the Han Geng I know…!! No frills, No fuss No fanfare..!! Just that simple..!
      BTW Mandy, I received your email..hehehe…thanks..

    I read a few posts by the Gangfans who were onsite at the charity and learned some behind the scene stories of the pictures posted here. All stories are very touching. Here are a few that moved me the most. 1 HG arrived quietly carrying boxes of fruits when Gangfans were leading the children for games. Gang fans were all shocked that he showed up, but none went screaming to him or asked for autograph extra, like what normal Gangfans would do. HG joined the games with them and they all put their first priority on the children. 2. HG went to the classroom to nail down maps on the wall when Gangfans distributed lunch to children. They were a treat to the children, some of them never saw a bottled water and wanted to bring home to show family. Some children went into classroom to eat but the classroom were so ill-equipped that there was not much tables or chairs. So the huddled together at the corner and eat from the floor. HG was in the room. That is when the two bigger pictures of HG,s post were taken. 3. After HG delivered rice, flour and oil to the more difficult families, one father brought his daughter and chased HG down to the most difficult school to thank him. From the 5 pictures related above, you can see that HG walked out of one classroom when the little girl presented him a bag of dried persimmon, the only delicacy maybe in the mountain. HG gave the bottle in his hand to his assistant Xiaomeng and bowed to receive the gift ink two hands. Then he and the little girl had a picture together. Then they and the father and teacher from the school had a picture at the door of the school (the small picture in his post). From the interactions, I see the humble respects from both sides and that touched me the most. A few fans posted that the persimmons were sweet. I am sure that their hearts are full of the sweets too.

      Thanks a lot for updating the fan accounts ^^

      Yes, I’m very impressed and moved by this little behind story of this picture. Sometimes, the tiniest detail can move us the most!

    Hi, i’m henny, and i have use marathon style in reading everything about Hangeng in this blog.
    I really really want to say u all a very very BRILLIANT Fans here.
    I never meet any other fans who are INTELLIGENT as you all.
    and when i read about trueblue comment about korean Gengfan who waiting for Hangeng at Korea, i just want to share something which crossed my mind once while i’m reading this blog.
    My impression whole of this time is, hangeng really never forget his Korean Fans, he ever say it in one of the show, that he file the lawsuit is because for his Korean fans, remember? that time one across my mind is, “how is it?” (still not sure), but the point is, he is thinking about his Korean fans. and he ever said that he won’t give up for his korean fans too. But then after that statemen,t his schedule, press conference, show and etc,etc all over around asia, but never to Korea.., but then he is going to hollywood!! (with the DWS movie). And then he say it again on the show where Nike go there, “wait for me” to korean Gengfan.
    As i know after the lawsuit, it will be hard for him to come to korea as a new star, but this is what has cross my mind, he is going there as a very big star, which make all the korea’s entertainment can not refuse him, what ever happen in the past.
    In other words, while he is start every thing again from begining, he is also strengthen his position and wait for the right time to go back to korea. (note this is just my thought all of this time, but i have no any evidence)
    I’m sorry for my english, i still learning. T__T i very hard to find a right word to say all of it.

    • bristlegrass says:

      Welcome to our blog~~Don’t worry about your English, dear henny…Your English is good enough for you to express yourself and for us to understand your feeling ^^ My English is not good, but I still dare to write here 😛

      I agree with you…we don’t know how and when he is going to make his promise to this devoted Korean fan come true, but we know he will keep working toward this goal…as always, Han Geng will keep his word. ^^

      • henny says:

        ^_________^ THANKYOU TO REPLY ME…!!!
        I’m little bit lonely because there is still not many people know Hangeng around me, and sometimes i want to talk many things about him, but can’t find someone. As also i never dare to leave any comment before..^__^, very happy….

  13. YF says:

    I love this man so much. He is so hard working. He contributes so much to charity but doesn’t make a big scene out of it. He doesn’t say anything to defend himself when people belittle him. That big idiot ><" I feel so much for this man that my heart aches.

    Thanks so much for having this blog dedicated to our beloved Geng, I feel so glad that fans are supporting him outside of SJ (we all know how much that means)!

    And I also want to say that Gengfans are the most dedicated followers ever! So united in everything they do, and show support for Geng that fans of other artists don't even think about (who else do you know that buys sheep? =p) Geng even said we are the best, so civilized haha =) Not to mention that every little thing he says on weibo can get about 10 to 20k responses =D
