Actors Shin Hyun-jun and Heo Jun-ho will stage a charity concert Jan. 24 at the Melon-X concert hall in Seoul to raise funds for the needy. The guests will include singers Baek Ji-young and KCM as well as actress Choi Ji-woo.
The concert will be held as a preview of the actors’ new movie "Last Present" due to open in February. A person from the movie’s production firm said one of the movie’s scenes shows a child who needs a liver transplant but has no money to pay for the surgery. Shin and Heo, who play the lead roles in the movie, decided to stage the concert in line with the movie’s theme.
The concert will be held free of charge. Audience members will be welcome to make donations voluntarily. The raised funds will be donated to the production team of the KBS TV charity program "Love Request," which is aimed at helping those in need.
The concert will accommodate about 1,000 people. Applications for attending the concert are currently being received on several Web sites. A person from the production firm of "Last Present" has requested active participation in the concert, which is being organized for a good cause.
