MBLAQ’s Lee Joon joins a growing list of celebrities who have donated to the Sewol ferry disaster.

On April 24, an employee of community-based fundraising organization Community Chest of Korea shared, “MBLAQ’s Lee Joon donated 10 million won (about 10 thousand USD). When donating, he said, ‘This is my first time donating. I’m sorry that the amount is small.’”

Fans who heard of his donation were surprised since he’s well-known to be stingy with his money. He would even collected money from his friends who owed him money during childhood.

Other celebrity donors include Major League baseball player Ryu Hyun Jin, actors Song Seung Hun, Park Jae Min, Ha Ji Won, Joo Sang Wook, On Joo Wan, Jung Il Woo, Jang Mi In Ae, Kim Bo Sung and many others. UAA, the entertainment agency which manages stars such as Song Hye Kyo, Yoo Ah In and Kang Dong Won, has also announced that it will be sending items such as blankets to the site in Jindo, where the families of missing passengers are still gathered.
