On April 23, a representative from Korea Disaster Relief Association Hope Bridge revealed that Park Shin Hye donated 50 million won (about 50 thousand USD) to support Sewol ferry relief efforts and families of the victims. It seemed like she didn’t want many people to know because she donated without letting her agency know. We’ll use the donation to help the victims and search for those who are still missing.”
The representative continued, “The families with missing loved ones and those with survivors will need to receive psychological treatment. Since there are many people, will need to be able to have them receive living support. The fundraising will last until June 30.”
Prior, on April 18, Park Shin Hye wrote on her Twitter, “Please, Please return safely… hope that there won’t be anymore victims.. pray that the lost will be able to return to their loving families… I’ll pray and I’ll pray again.” She also changed her profile photo to a yellow ribbon to show her support for the cause.
Actress Oh Yeon Seo’s representative shared that she donated 10 million won (about 10 thousand USD) to the Red Cross Society to help the relief efforts for the victims and families related to the Sewol ferry tragedy.
