Actor Kim Go-eun donates ₩50 million to SNU's children's hospital
Actor Kim Go-eun donated 50 million won ($44,000) to the Children's Hospital of the Seoul National University Hospital in honor of Children's Day, her agency BH Entertainment said on Wednesday.
Kim's donation will go to helping children whose families cannot afford medical treatment.
"I hope that the day when young children go back to school and meet their friends comes again soon," Kim said.
"I hope that my small donation will support them and I wish to help in other ways in the future."
Kim is set to feature in "Yumi's Cells," a drama based on the Naver Webtoon series of the same title, that will air in the later half of this year.
Children's Day falls on May 5 every year and celebrities often mark the day with charitable deeds.
On Tuesday, J-Hope of BTS donated 100 million won to ChildFund Korea and singer Suzy donated 100 million won to non-profit organization Happiness Sharing Taekwondo Federation.
