Television personality Jun Hyun-moo is the latest in a recent trend of top celebrities making significant contributions to charity.

The entertainer donated 50 million won ($41,400) to help support children with heart disease. According to his agency SM C&C, Jun made the contribution through the Korea Heart Foundation.

“[Jun] made the donations without us knowing,” said the company, who added that “he is frequently interested in charitable deeds for society.”

Relatedly, big names such as comedian Yoo Jae-suk, actress Park Shin-hye, pop star Psy and singer Hyeri of girl group Girls’ Day have made similar donations.
