Child Fund Korea, a charity for helping neglected infants, revealed on May 12, “The fan club of JYJ member Kim Jaejoong donated in commemoration of his military enlistment. ”
The singer’s fan club donated 10 million won (approx. 9,000 USD) to help neglected infants last year, and has donated 5 million won (approx. 4,500 USD) this year again. Moreover, this fan club has been supporting Child Fund Korea ever since 2009, along with other charities related to helping the young.
The Director of Headquarters of Child Fund Korea stated, “A new kind of culture is on the rise as people donate in the name of their favorite star, or donate in celebration of something related to the star. We will use the funds with care in remembrance of the fans who want to help these kids in need,” and expressed his gratefulness.
