Actor Kim Soo Hyun recently participated in the donation parade started by many celebrities to fight against COVID-19 (the new Coronavirus).
According to the Daegu branch of the Community Chest of Korea on Feb. 28, Kim donated KRW 100 million to the Korean nonprofit charity to console and help Daegu citizens who are fiercely struggling with the spread of COVID-19. The Daegu Community Chest of Korea will use his contributions to purchase treatment devices and other supplies related to the prevention of the virus.
Kim Soo Hyun has constantly made good influences on the society by donations since his debut. In 2014, he donated KRW 300 million to support psychological therapy and rehabilitation management of Danwon High School students who survived from the Sewol ferry disaster. He also contributed KRW 200 million to Chinese children as one of the most beloved Hallyu (“Korean Wave” in Korean) stars.
After being discharged from the army last July, Kim is returning to the small screen with tvN’s new series Psycho But It’s Okay, which airs this June.
