Entertainer donates 100M won to charity

TV celebrity Hyun Young donated 100 million won ($86,000) worth of medicine last week to Sports Doctors, a charity that provides medical service to those in need.

During a recent event organized by Sports Doctors at Some Sevit in Banpo-dong, southern Seoul, Hyun acted as host and also received the contribution award in the culture and art category.

In her acceptance speech, Hyun promised to donate 100 million won worth of medicine to the charity.

Lately, Hyun is hosting several TV variety shows, including “Vitamin,” “Red Purse” and “Kwak Seung-jun’s Coolkkadang.”

Big Bang has had a good year on YouTube

The most-watched K-pop music video this year was Big Bang’s “Bang Bang Bang,” according to YouTube.

The world’s largest video-sharing website said on Monday that the group’s “Bang Bang Bang” and “Loser” ranked No. 1 and No. 2.

Other tracks from the five-member group’s newest album, “Made,” including “Let’s Not Fall in Love” and “Sober,” ranked sixth and ninth on the list.

Exo’s “Call Me Baby” and “Party” by Girls’ Generation came in third and fifth place.

Furthermore, Big Bang’s official YouTube channel saw the biggest increase in terms of subscribers since last November and was named No. 1 in terms of growth.
