 Kwak Jin Eon's kind donation has taken everyone by surprise.


Back in 2014, Kwak Jin Eon was named the final winner of 'Superstar K6'. Along with the chance to debut, he received prize money of 300 million KRW (~$260,000 USD). In 2015, the singer donated more than half of the prize money to charity, without even telling his label.


Two years later on May 10, the Community Chest of Korea revealed that Kwak Jin Eon has been inducted into the organization's honor society, for members who have donated more than 100 million KRW.

It was reported that, "Kwak Jin Won donated a total of 200 million KRW to the Community Chest of Korea. The money will be used to help those in need in the Gwangwon area. His decision to make a donation was influenced by his mother, who owns a children's study hall in Gwangwon." 


Kwak Jin Eon's label Music Farm also commented, "He didn't tell us about his donation at all so we also had no idea. He decided to make a secret donation, because his mother told him to not let your left hand know."
