Jang Geun Suk recently took time out of his busy schedule to give back to his alma mater.
Earlier this week it was revealed that Jang Geun Suk had donated all the money he’d received as a commercial model to Hanyang University, where he used to be a student. The amount of money donated came to 100 million won (about $94,000).
Even when he was still enrolled in school, Jang Geun Suk had donated 1.2 billion won (about $1,128,000) to the university’s scholarship fund. Furthermore, Jang Geun Suk has volunteered his time as the MC for a charity music festival at Hanyang. In honor of this, the university named it the “Jang Geun Suk Scholarship” after him. The school also invited him to be a special lecturer on the subject of philanthropy and share his experience volunteering and donating with the Hanyang students.
“I’m proud that I was able to give my juniors, who are learning about Hanyang’s philosophy of ‘the practice of love,’ more opportunities. If the school ever needs me again in the future, I will do my best to help.”
Jang Geun Suk is currently starring in the drama “Switch.”
