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.
