“I want to work hard and earn money righteously, so as to be able to share more”
Korean star JKS will establish a foundation under his name this year.
On 7 Jan, JKS revealed in an interview with Yonhap news, “I will establish a JKS foundation this year, and will continue to expand current sharing. The plan to establish this foundation started 5 years ago, and has gone through thorough preparation. At my age now, I think it is the right time to materialize the plan.”
JKS has donated 1.2 billion Korean won to his alma mater Hanyang University, 1 billion won to the Japan earthquake, 100 million won to the Philippines typhoon, and has continuously been making big and small donations over the past 10 years.
He has also been supporting 100 over kids through charitable groups, and at the same time with his fan club, donating and doing volunteer work at the Namsanwon children centre. He is called a “Charity Angel”.
JKS says “When I saw the distorted reports, I felt hurt, but I could persevere on because of my fans who believed in me. Till now, I did not break the law, and have worked hard righteously to earn money. And I will continue to do so, and expand my sharing through my hard-earned money.”
JKS was one of the 6 who was conferred with the title of “Sharing Professor” last Oct, shared practical experiences with the students on Charity (Philanthropy).
JKS added, “I will donate blankets if they are hit by typhoon, will build a school if they need one, and will financially support seniors and juniors in the entertainment business who are in need, and will be more active in sharing. To gain positive energy through sharing, I wish to continue living this way.”Share on Facebook
