Actor Jang Geun Suk’s fan club raised 75 million won (approximately $66,300) through a photo exhibition held in honor of his birthday.
The charity event is organized by Cri J, the official fan club of Jang Geun Suk, and this is the fifth year of it running since it began. “2017 Jang Geun Suk’s Birthday Sharing Photo Exhibition” was held on September 2 and 3 alongside “2017 Cri-Present in Seoul fan meeting.” The exhibition is an event where fans showcase photos of Jang Geun Suk’s works from the past year, led by the official fan club.
As birthday presents for the actor, fans deliver the charity money, which include entrance fees from the exhibition as well as individual donations.
The money raised through the event this year summed up to 75 million won (approximately $66,300). It will be delivered to local charity organizations like Namsanwon and The Snail of Love. The donations will be used to cover surgery costs for ill abandoned dogs as well as food.
Jang Geun Suk personally visited the exhibition like he did last year and expressed his gratitude to the fans.
