Song Joong Ki truly has a heart of gold.
Recently, a post titled “My Girlfriend Received a Present from Song Joong Ki” was published on an online community website.
In the post, the netizen who made the post explains how last February, his girlfriend was sent a personal gift from the actor. His girlfriend was a terminally ill colon cancer patient, and was a huge Song Joong Ki fan. The writer, and some of his acquaintances, attempted to contact the actor, who was serving in the military at the time, through a letter explaining the situation. After reading the letter, Song Joong Ki had contacted his company, Blossom Entertainment, requesting that they send the girlfriend an autographed DVD of “A Werewolf Boy,” starring the actor himself. Sadly, according to the post, the girlfriend passed away before receiving the gift.
The person behind the post also writes, “I was surprised that he read my letter out of the many letters he receives and, even though he could have just forgotten about it, I am thankful to him for believing a letter that could be taken as lie as well as answering my request.”
Song Joong Ki was also previously revealed to be a regular donor to the Korea Childhood Leukemia Foundation since 2011, and his efforts helped over 10 children receive treatment. Furthermore, he donated 100 million won (approximately $86,100) last year to relief efforts in Nepal following the devastating earthquake.
Meanwhile, he is currently starring as Captain Yoo Si Jin in the popular KBS2 drama, “Descendants of the Sun.”
