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.

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! :)

Dude ... don't you need the money or something. Plus, donations are all great but only to a point where it satisfies the needs.

He has been around for years .. Why question his sincerity?? It's his money and it wasn't because he wanted to show it off ... He did it in secret ..

@shaishaix3 Isn't TJK known for struggling financialy at times ... just saying ... absolutley not questioning his sincerity since he did it under the name of his father ... just all these people coming out with this like they need to prove something. With the amount of money coming ... seriously ... I think money helps to a certain point these are fa,ily members and school peers human lives that died not some damaged property so 'celebs' need to chill with this ... general saying

@za I'm sure he talked it out with his wife before stepping forward to donate. He obviously felt that there were others who need the money much more than he did. Some feel the need to keep money saved up as back up, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. Others are fine with just getting by if it means the can reach out and help others. He's been around long enough to know what he can and can't get by with I think. He'll be fine :)

I wish people would just let them donate in private if that is what they are trying to do. Not go searching for who it is donating. It shouldn't matter who is donating just that some people are. 

It's sweet for him do to it in his fathers name and a generous amount :)

I was joking (to me; *others* did *NOT* see it that way) that Park Shin Hye had donated money without saying of it. So, then it was 'discovered' that she had donated the money. So therefore Park Shin Hye had to CONFESS HER GUILT of donating that money! I thought it was clever, as opposed to having your Agency *say* it that PSH had donated the money. But, I got quite a few negative [-] ticks on saying that, and I'll probably get more here. So okay; I CHOOSE THE DANGER! (LOL)

@krevice We are allowed to have our own opinion. I'm not bothered about (+) or (-) next to my comment, if someone disagrees with me then that's their prerogative and if they feel the need to down vote my comment it's not going to change my opinion lol

most charities are scams, and more than likely these people will never see all this money. charities have  the  authority to donate only one percent of charity funds, and you know what .its legal. i never donate, but its a scam!

There are a lot of scams out there, but that doesn't mean they are all scams. I'm thankful everyone doesn't think like you. If they did, there would be thousands, possibly millions of people without assistance or aid. I know I've personally benefited from organizations that live from donations, so I know it works.

Yg is donating as part of the company. These people are paying from their own personal bank account.

kind *hearted ... (typo fix) ... Although K-pop probably has some "heated" people too. Hyoyeon of SNSD comes to mind as a *possiblity* here. (Slap! Slap! Slap! Slap! Slap!) ... Chill out, SONES (SNSD fans) ... This is *quality* trolling ... (LOL)
