Kim Jaejoong donates a headset that he used to a charity, check out the details on how to get it -> <GMarket>
Despite not being able to promote his music on broadcasts and music shows like any other artists in South Korea, JYJ member Kim Junsu still quite well for himself as a successful musical actor and solo artist when he’s not following activities with his groupmates.
Though having gone through hardships himself after breaking off from the group TVXQ (SM Entertainment), Junsu’s big heart has revealed itself through various charitable donations as uncovered by netizens who lists his achievements, gaining praise from those coming across this published post on Instiz.
Below is a translation of the post.
Is there a reason you started giving?
When I left my previous agency. I’m thankful for everything right now although some may say that my situation of not being able to appear on TV is unfortunate, I am happy that I am able to release albums still and do concerts and perform on musicals. As I realized this me and the other JYJ members all thought we should give more.
[parts unrelated to JYJ or Junsu omitted]
JYJ is known for its massive charitable donations, either in the form of money, mango trees or other items, especially to countries outside Korea, but one act that particularly stood out was done back in 2011, when member Kim Junsu helped build a school in Cambodia.
The ‘Xiah Junsu Evergreen Tree School’ was built for students who previously had to walk 5-10 km to get their education, and was erected as part of the Habitat for Humanity campaign. Junsu’s own mother visited the town prior to the construction, and returned for the opening ceremony, whereupon she named the school.
Fans of JYJ‘s Yoochun have completed a fantastic charity project to show support for his SBS drama, ‘Rooftop Prince‘.
Yoochun’s fan support union spent six weeks collecting Naver‘s charity currency, called Happy Beans, starting from February 15th until March 31st. They managed to gather about $11,500 USD, which they used to purchase and donate rice and ramen for groups like the eldery, multi-cultural families, single mother families, the disabled, and the impoverished.
Over 179 organizations signed up for the project, and 42 were chosen. The organizations thanked the fans by leaving messages like, “Yoochun seemed like a figure so far removed from us, but he now seems so close,” and “We were worried over running out of rice, but we are now able to give the elderly meals thanks to the fans of Yoochun.”
In related news, JYJ has been continuing their charity projects, such as their numerous donations to world causes, in addition to their participation in the ‘Mango Tree Project‘ with World Vision.
