The Drop Box

On March 3rd, The Drop Box comes to U.S. theaters and shares the story of Jong-rak Lee, a pastor who decided to make it his mission to save abandoned babies left on the streets of Seoul, South Korea.

His idea was to create a “Drop Box” where abandoned babies could be dropped off rather than left on the street to die. The Drop Box is equipped with lights and a heater and reads in Korean, “Please don’t throw away unwanted or disabled babies, or babies of single mothers. Please bring them here instead.”

The director of the film, Brian Ivie, was first moved by Pastor Lee’s work after reading an article about him in the LA Times. Then he decided to visit him and create a film about his baby box. Ivie said that Pastor Lee was creating a bunker for babies and defending it with his own life. Pastor Lee said, “I can’t be here and not do anything about it, so we installed the baby box with God’s heart.” Then he said to God, “I will die for these babies.”
