Lee Junki (Iljimae) is donating 100 million won (about $70,000) on behalf of disadvantaged youths.
The popular actor’s contribution goes to Korea Youth Protection Association’s Happy Community Children Center. A representative from the association expressed their appreciation, saying, “I was moved to see Lee Junki inquiring about and taking an interest in the children’s center.”
Lee went to the center on December 4 to deliver the funds in person. According to his reps, he had told them previously of his intent to donate his earnings from his last CF to an outreach organization.
The center serves poor and working-class children in the community by teaching them English (or Korean to the children of foreign laborers), math, and other academic subjects for free. It’s the giving season, and despite the current slump in the Korean entertainment industry (and, well, worldwide).
