Note: Omitted Jaejoong’s Unrelated parts
Next star I am going to introduce is group JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong (Gongju), who became a superstar as TVXQ’s Hero Jaejoong. He debuted in 2003 and is currently very active as a singer and actor.
He graduated from Gongju Jungdong Elementary School and Gongju Sadaebusok Middle School, and he loves the schools he went to. In fact he donated $20,000 and $30,000 to each school respectably in 2011.
Mr. Kim’s donation was used to purchase books, replace old PCs and build water fountains at the elementary school. At the middle school it was allocated to scholarship fund and books and supplies for special classes. And it was also used to support the elementary school’s baseball and swim teams. His solo songs includes One Kiss, Forgotten Season and Shiny Day.
There are quiet few famous singers from Chungcheongnam-do we didn’t know about. I think they should be nominated as honorary ambassadors of Chungcheongnam-do.
