BEIJING, Aug. 30 (Yonhap) -- A South Korean civic body promoting the posting of positive comments on the Internet said Tuesday it has presented a Chinese noodle restaurant with a website meant to cheer and support the restaurant's charity activities.

The group, the Sunfull movement, held a ceremony in front of Chengliang Noodle Restaurant in Hangzhou, eastern China, on Thursday to mark the presentation of a website carrying comments that support its charity work. Weibo, China's equivalent of Twitter, reported the ceremony in real time.

Zhang Chengliang, the restaurant owner, has every morning treated street sweepers to meat noodles in winter and mung bean soup in summer since 2013.

Sunfull launched a campaign early this year to support Zhang's charity work, filling the website with about 10,000 comments praising the restaurant's good deeds.

Zhang was quoted as saying, "I would like to thank Korean netizens for encouraging our shop. It is my hope for netizens of both countries to become friends indeed when friends are in need through the positive comment movement."

The Sumfull movement is aimed at putting a stop to cyberbullying in response to a number of Korean celebrities being driven to commit suicide by malicious comments posted on the Internet. Min Byoung-chul, an English education expert, founded the international movement in 2007 to encourage young people to post positive comments on the Internet.
