The boys of U-KISS got the chance to throw the first pitch at the recent Japanese baseball game and the audience saw yellow ribbons pinned to their clothes.

The boys were seen at the Fukuoka Yafuoku Dome on the 26th to make the first opening throw for the match between Softbank Hawks and the Seibu Lions. The boys came out with yellow ribbons that signifies their movement for the Sewol victims.

Before they took their throw, the boys talked about the recent tragedy that struck Korea and they offered their deepest condolences to the victims and also told Japanese fans to never lose hope. The label shared, "We are sorry to the Japanese broadcast and the team because we couldn't get their permission beforehand, and also to the audience who came to see the game with light hearts. But the Japanese baseball fans, broadcast personnel, and even the viewers who saw expressed their condolences along with us, so the members gained a lot of strength. Thank you."

U-KISS are one of the many idols who also gave their sympathy to all the victims of Sewol ferry tragedy.
