TVXQ’s Yunho And Actress Ko So Young Receive Government Commendations For Savings Day
Savings Day, or “National Day of Finance” (literal translation), is a commemoration date set aside to remind people of the importance of financial savings and stimulate interest in saving, insurance, and securities. It combines several other “financial dates” that began in the 1960s and 1970s. The current iteration of Savings Day began in 2016 and takes place on the last Tuesday of October.
On October 27, a ceremony was held for the fifth annual Savings Day at the 63 Convention Center in Yeouido, Seoul. Among the divisions of savings and investment, financial innovation, and financial engagement, Yunho was awarded the presidential commendation and Ko So Young was awarded the prime ministerial commendation.
Eun Sung Soo, the chairperson of the Financial Services Commission, stated, “Yunho and Ko So Young have had a positive impact on our society through steady donations and promotions in the interest of the public good.”
About Yunho, the chairperson said, “Not only has he led an exemplary savings life, but he has also donated scholarship money to his alma mater to help students in difficult circumstances.” The chairperson also cited Yunho’s donations to the causes of COVID-19 infection prevention and the establishment of a new library and education center.
Ko So Young was similarly commended for her exemplary savings life and her donations to COVID-19 prevention and earthquake disaster relief, donations on behalf of pediatric patients, and donations on behalf of unmarried mothers and their babies.
