Actor Kim Soo Hyun recently donated 1.2 million Yuan (approximately 200,000 USD) to help support children in China.
After finishing up his fan meetings in Guangzhou and Beijing on April 4 and 6, Kim Soo Hyun attended Gucci’s flagship store’s charity fashion show in Beijing.
On April 8, he teamed up with Italian luxury brand Gucci to donate to China’s first foundation CCTF (China Children and Teenagers Fund). They aim to help improve the quality of life for children by supporting their body and mind improvement, along with enforcing national policy on equal rights for both sexes. There are approximately 1,200 children being sponsored through the program. With the additional support, the foundation plans to build a treatment center for Chinese children who encounter hardship.
“I wanted to return even a little bit of the huge love and interest from the public,” explained Kim Soo Hyun. “I’m happy to know that I’m able to participate in the warm effort to help children overcome their difficult conditions.”
Kim Soo Hyun donated the listed amount and posted with CCTF’s secretary general Jin Hyo Ha and Gucci’s CEO Patrizio di Marco.
Meanwhile, Kim Soo Hyun is currently touring Asia for his fan tour and will visit Indonesia, Singapore, and Japan from now until the middle of May.
