Song Joong Ki’s Fans Follow In His Footsteps By Donating To A Great Cause
On July 12, it was revealed that Song Joong Ki’s fans had donated 12 million won (approximately $10,500) to “The House of Sharing” in Gwangju, a shelter for former comfort women forced into prostitution during the Japanese occupation of Korea.
The effort was coordinated by a group of Song Joong Ki’s fans, who decided to form a coalition to support his new movie, “The Battleship Island,” which also deals with the Japanese colonial occupation.
In a statement, the fan coalition stated that they hoped through the donation to commemorate the victims of the occupation as well as comfort and support the surviving women.
Last October, Song Joong Ki also donated 20 million won (about $17,500) to the same charity while filming “The Battleship Island.”
