Singer Tiger JK donated 100 million won (~ 96,000 USD) to the victims of the tragic ferry accident under his late father's name, Seo Byung Hoo.  


One entertainment rep revealed to media outlet TV Daily, "Under the name of his late father Seo Byung Hoo, who passed away back in February, Tiger JK donated 100 milion won to the victims of the Sewol accident in secret through the Naver Happy Bin on April 25."

The rep continued, "Through a letter, the late Seo Byung Hoo expressed that he was disappointed he had not been able to give more to those living hard lives.  Tiger JK felt a lot of pain regarding the Sewol accident and decided to donate to express his condolences."


His father passed away on February 1 at the age of 72 in his home after suffering from cancer, but Tiger JK has thought of a thoughtful way to honor his father.

He is such a generous and caring musician, on We Got Married with Nickhun and Victoria , they went to his house to be honest you couldnt tell how much he made. If someone with no background of him walked in they might mistake him for an average Korean. Shows how honest and humble South Korean celebrities are !

Can you stop comparing who donate the most? Did you even donate to them? Not right then don't say anything.

I'm sorry to tell you but ... who cares ?! Isn't it more important that all these famous people want to do a good action and help people ?!

Dude, if you're going to be a troll, do it in an article that isn't this serious. Let's see you making jokes if something like this happened to you.

People keep on making this seem like a contest of WHO donate MORE. Just stop it please, ARE YOU DONATING? Probably not. Just stop it, this is a big deal in Korea, don't make "fun" of it, just be thankful that those who CAN are donating the amount they CAN. ;

Tiger JK seems like a very nice and soft soul. When he was on running man, he was really sweet. Donating under his dad's name is very sweet of him! :)
