Actor Jang Geun Suk is another star whose magnanimity has come to light lately as it was revealed on January 25 that he has donated 10 million KRW (~ 8,000 USD) to national and international relief organization NGO's 'With Go' for the delivery of rice to isolated neighbors.


Since 2011, he has always given amounts to 'With Go' for the aid of neighbors.  A rep from the organization stated, "Every year in December, Jang Geun Suk consistently donated, asking us to use [the money] for excluded neighbors.  All this time, we have relayed the money he sent us to facilities for children, the elderly with no one to rely on, and the severely handicapped.  [The donations] were also used to support the low-income families at the end of the year through rice," and relayed thanks for his help.

A rep from his agency stated, "Jang Geun Suk always has a great desire to return the love that his fans always give him to society.  Although the amount is not large, he is happy that he gets to relay even a bit of hope to the neighbors who fell on hard times through 'With Go.'"


Can he be any more perfect?

    I do not like celebrities who try to attract attention and seek more fame ;saying to be philanthropists or taking photos with children in africa etc etc. and making their charity and help so public so that people love and respect. therefore their charity and support look so hypocritical.

    .

    I prefer celebrities do charity, donations and volunteering in secret and without having to do much publicity to get attention or seek more fame.

    Sorry to contradict you, but you're quite wrong, I assume it's because you do not know Jang Keun Suk. JKS has years making donations that are not even public domain and many that only official fans we know it, he has never needed support of charitable activities to gain notoriety, I'll tell you a little, it's almost 25 years of artistic career and many successes and failures that have not required photos with children in Africa, but also helps children in Africa, some 150 children and began years ago and now is that you are finding out. His eels (fans) we do charitable work in his name of which you have no not the slightest idea, in such remote places that probably not even you know. So no, definitely JKS not need charity to gain fame.

    I got your point, @waxzjangp. I don't really fancy celebrities who use charity work to gain fame. However, JKS doesn't seem to be one of these people. I have been an avid fan since 2010-ish and I did not even know that he made this regular donation every year! I knew only the ones that media found out. JKS said that he doesn't want to be a 'charity angel' but he will help people who need his help based on what they truly need. That makes him a different philanthropist, IMHO :)

    That $8,000 is just one of the many charitable donations he makes every year. In doing so, his fans love him even more and become far more loyal to him because of that generosity.
