Heejun donates 9,600 USD to the bereaved families of the Sewol tragedy

Former 'American Idol' and 'K-Pop Star 3' contestant Heejun has reportedly donated 10 million KRW (9,600 USD) to the grieving families of the Sewol tragedy.

It has been reported that Heejun asked his agent from the United States to send 10 million KRW (9,600 USD) from the money earned from his appearances and events to the bereaved families going through the aftermath of the sunken ferry as he departed to the States for his overseas schedule. He also respectfully canceled his fan meeting on April 19.

Heejun stated, "I hope this donation gets directly sent to not the relief efforts but the bereaved families... I have experience losing a close friend due to an accident, so I know that the remaining families' suffering and pain is unimaginable... I want to directly help them."

"Although I have been receiving recruitment offers from many domestic agencies following 'K-Pop Star 3', right now is the time to grieve with the entire nation, so of course, I will put that first before thinking about myself."
