Hallyu star Kim Hyun Joong has recently got to help those in need with the help of his fans.
Key East Entertainment stated on August 6, “On August 3, Kim Hyun Joong donated 50 million won (about 50,000 USD) to ‘The Beautiful Foundation.’ 30 million won will go to senior citizens who live on their own and the other 20 million won will go to current college students for their tuition and living costs.”
Kim Hyun Joong’s fans were a big influence to this recent donation. Recently, Kim Hyun Joong’s fan club donated 10 million won to “The Beautiful Fund.” After discovering this, Kim Hyun Joong was deeply touched. So he went on to donate 50 million won himself.
“The Beautiful Fund” also expressed how touched they were through these recent events. They stated, “It is very exceptional for a celebrity to make a donation because of his/her fan club has done so first. Cases like this show how fandom can mature and grow into something that is extra meaningful.”
Meanwhile, Kim Hyun Joong is fimling for his new drama, “City Conquest.”
