Actor Bae Yong Joon recently stood up to donate to those that suffered from Japan’s horrific earthquake that occurred last week.
Having a high status in Japan, ‘Yon-sama’ owes a lot of his popularity from his Japanese fans, and with a gracious heart, he has decided to give away 1,000,000,000 WON, which comes up to approximately $900,000 USD.
Bae Yong Joon’s company, Keyeast, recently stated, “After hearing that Japan had limited relief supplies and equipment, Bae Yong Joon quickly reacted and donated 1,000,000,000WON for emergency support, hoping for a speedier recovery. The money will be given through the Japan Tourism Agency, who will distribute it to organizations involved in the earthquake/tsunami relief effort. Bae Yong Joon is also very worried about the victims who are in shortage of food and basic living supplies so he has decided to provide food, blankets, and other items as well.”
Bae Yong Joon is not the only actor who is donating money to the neighboring country, as Kim Hyun Joong and Jang Geun Suk, who are also receiving much love in Japan, have decided to give away $100,000 and $120,000 respectively. The latter left a message stating, “I hope that the victims can return to their normal life soon.”
