Actors help adoption agencyA celebrity couple has donated 100 million won ($93,300) to support children waiting to be adopted as well as single moms.
Actor Jang Dong-gun and actress Ko So-young pledged to give money to the Eastern Social Welfare Society in a donation ceremony on Thursday at the adoption agency’s headquarters in Seodaemun, northwestern Seoul.
Since they gave birth to a son in 2010, the two talents have been focusing much of their attention on single moms and babies.
“As I still have dreams to be an actress and designer even after I became a mom, other single moms have had the same idea,” said Ko. “I want to support them.”
Ko has been filming a documentary program, tentatively named “Moms Have a Dream, Too,” with broadcaster MBC since the summer.
In the program, she has been helping out single moms at the welfare agency and has talked with many single moms, which made her decide to donate to the agency.
The documentary is scheduled to be aired next month.
