Lim Young-woong donates 100 million won to charity
Trot singer Lim Young-woong donated 100 million won to the Community Chest of Korea to celebrate his birthday.
Mulgogi Music, which represents him, matched the donation. Both were made in the name of the singer’s fan club, which is known as Young-woong’s Era.
The singer wanted to help people in need due to the prolonged coronavirus pandemic and thank his fan club for making donations earlier.
“I’m always so very grateful for the love that I receive from the public,” Lim said. “I will try to remember this feeling of gratitude, and I would also like to pay respect to the good deeds that Youngwoong’s Era is doing.”
The singer donated 100 million won to the children's welfare foundation Dream Fruit last year and 890 million won to non-governmental organization The Hopeful People to assist victims of nationwide floods jointly with his fan club.
