On the July 26th episode of 'Taxi', Choi Kang Hee revealed, "It's very difficult to find someone with matching bone marrow. In this case, it'd been 10 years since there was a match, so I thought that I must do it." She added happily, "From what I heard, there were two leukemia patients in the household. The older brother matched with their dad, and the younger sibling matched with me. They were both able to live."

As for what she's been up to lately, the actress commented, "My contract with my company ended, so I'm spending time solo. I want to work, but it doesn't happen the way I want. When I'm picking projects, I take breaks in between. I want to do summer work, but I always end up working in winter."


How good of her!

    She's so kind and brave. It seem pretty scary when they take bone marrow. This huge tube needle thing. I don't understand how leukaemia work. So as long as you can find someone else that matches you and receive donation you get all better? Or does it just delay your death by a little.
