Fans have been trying to keep their favorite idols updated in any way they can about the ongoing crisis in Gaza due to several Israeli attacks. Many have taken to social media platforms to comment, spread hashtags, and even organize boycotts. Similarly, BOYNEXTDOOR's fans have chosen to post this information through Weverse's “Fan Letters” feature.

Leehan liked several letters about the tragedies in Palestine and the associated brand boycott.

One of the posts he liked was a simple poster with the viral slogan “All eyes on Rafah.” The phrase recently went viral on the internet, with countless celebrities posting it on their social media after an Israeli airstrike caused a fire at a camp for displaced Palestinians in Rafah, a city in the south of the Gaza Strip.

According to Gaza's Health Ministry, at least 45 people were killed and hundreds more injured in the incident. The international community has widely condemned the attack. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described it as “tragic mistake.”

Leehan also liked a letter from a fan informing him of brands he should boycott due to their involvement in the conflict. The letter expressed hope that Leehan would read it and raise awareness.

I'm not sure who will notice this letter, but I hope Leehan can read it the same way he reads other fan letters.

This is a reminder for all of us to boycott financial support of Israel bombing Palestine. A collective boycott will have a huge impact. If you already own these products, that's fine. But please don't keep buying them. What is happening there is very serious. These are people who also want to live peacefully in their own country.

I hope you will inform and spread this message to your friends. Together we can make a change. It may seem difficult at first, but believe me, if we insist on their independence, it will be a very happy moment that we get to witness. I hope Leehan and other members can increase their knowledge about the current global situation. Even if you feel limited, that's OK. There are things we can do to help them. Even this one small action can make the world a happier place.

Thank you and always stay happy. I am not Korean, but I hope you understand what I want to say.
