Poor moms get a bad rap when flying with babies.
It is just a thing babies do.
Sometimes you can fix it easily, sometimes you have no idea why they're crying and they just won't stop.
It's just the way life is.
However, being in a confined space with 200 other people while your baby wails is not only difficult, it's embarrassing to be the person taking all the blame for the unpleasant journey.
So this mom did some pre-planning.
The note reads:
"Hello, I'm Junwoo and I'm 4 months old."
"Today I am going to the U.S. with my mom and grandma to see my aunt I'm a little bit nervous and scary because it's my first of flight in my life, which means that I may cry or make too much noise."
"I will try to go quietly, though I can't make any promises...Please excuse me."
"So my mom prepared little goodie bag for you! it has some candies and earplugs."
"Please use it when it's too noisy because of me. Enjoy your trip. Thank you. :')"
Apparently, the baby didn't make a single sound for the entire flight.
Some people can be real warts about babies crying. Entire resources exist that basically tell people that the child crying is not a personal attack on them.
But we have all been on a flight where that one jerk just has to say something, perhaps even take it out on the flight attendant:

Don't worry, this lady got suspended from her job for this mess.
But still, it was nice of Junwoo's mommy to plan in advance, considering the flight from South Korea to San Francisco is TEN hours.
Despite the kid not making any noise, it was definitely still a sweet gesture.
Some people, however, are noting that people should not need to go through such pains because people don't get that babies cry.
@Fahad4014 A sweet gesture, but a condemnation of our societies that she felt the need.— Devin Ganger (boosting marginalized voices) (@Devin Ganger (boosting marginalized voices)) 1551053150
@Fahad4014 This is “Social responsibility” 👍🏻 Just imagine what we do to fulfil our social responsibilities.— Hina Ayra (@Hina Ayra) 1551077793
But most people are just floored by the thoughtfulness of the gesture.
