Many fans of 2021's Netflix dating show ‘Singles Inferno’ were heartbroken when Song Jia aka YouTuber and Influencer FreeZia (Freezia) was called out for using fake copies of branded goods. While she was bullied online, her fans rushed to support her even as more rumors surfaced that alleged her father was a sex salon owner and that she delayed deleting all her past videos because she was seeking monetary gains from YouTube.

With so much holding her down following the fake brand items controversy, Freezia uploaded a video apologizing for her lack of judgment while purchasing the counterfeit items and also went on a hiatus. It seems like no good deed goes unwitnessed, and it appears that Song Jia’s good deeds are becoming her saving grace. First, it was revealed that Jia donated 20 million won ($16k) to victims of forest fires, and now she was seen engaging in volunteer work that is melting the hearts of fans.

A photo was posted on many Naver articles featuring Song Jia on May 19 that showed her volunteering at the Catholic House of Love and Peace. The charity posted a photo of Song Jia as well as actress Kang Ye-won doing volunteer work through their official Instagram handle. What was noteworthy was that Jia was wearing a white Calvin Klein baseball cap - the same brand the Netflix star was accused of using fake items of. An investigation revealed that out of 500 plus branded items that she owned, Song Jia only had less than 20 fake copies, which improved her public image further.

Fans claimed that this was not as serious as the media was making it out to be, considering branded goods do cost a lot and if she could purchase so many genuine products, she could have purchased the remaining 20 too.

While talking about her first-ever reappearance ever since the controversy, a representative of the Catholic Love and Peace House said, “Jia and Yewon come once a month to volunteer in the kitchen and to deliver lunch boxes to one of the villages.” They also urged the two to continue their work and spread positive influence in the future.
