Actress Ha Ji Won joins the growing list of celebrities who are giving what they can to help the victims and relief efforts of the Sewol ferry disaster.
Ha Ji Won, who is currently starring in the MBC drama “Empress Ki” has donated 100 million won (~96,200 USD) to the relief efforts of the ferry disaster. She has always had a soft spot for children and youths, according to reports, previously donating to the “Hottest Scholarship” that supports students in the art, music, and physical education fields, and to Severance Hospital to support children with visual impairment.
Celebrities Song Seung Hun, Song Hye Gyo, Kang Dong Won, Yoo Ah In, Park In Young, and more have also donated their time and money to Sewol ferry disaster relief efforts. Actor On Joo Han also donated 10 million won, saying that while his donation amount can’t compare to Song Seung Hun’s 100 million won, he wanted to continue the relay of donations.
South Korea continues to be in a state of emergency as rescue efforts are still ongoing for the passengers of the Sewol ferry that sank off the coast of Jindo on April 16.
