Kim Je-dong to donate to children
Kim launched a foundation called the “Fantastic Duo” for children when he departed from a TV show on MBC with the same title where ordinary young children who were under seven paired up with celebrities and solved quizzes.
“Kim will donate further proceeds as well to the foundation,” the press release added.
Kim is also famous for being one of a few “socialtainers” in Korea, a combination word of social and entertainer. Kim, who is liberal, recently encouraged netizens to cast their votes for the Wednesday’s by-election through his Twitter account. Because of his political interest, Kim was fired from a couple of TV shows in 2009.
