It seems that Moon Geun Young ‘s (문근영) beauty is not only skin deep as she proves she has a heart of gold. The talented actress most recently seen in the drama ‘The Village: Achiara’s Secret‘ was revealed to have been donating money for about thirteen years to patients suffering from childhood cancer and rare incurable diseases!
This information came to light when her name appeared on the list of Honor Society members on the homepage of Community Chest of Korea‘s Pledge of Love on January 22. Since 2003, the actress has donated generously and consistently through Pledge of Love, and her donations amount to a huge total of 900 million KRW which is approximately $740,000 USD!
Not only did ‘the nation’s little sister’ (perhaps now called ‘the nation’s little angel’?) donate for thirteen years for a charitable cause but she had also done so anonymously and in secret, without even the knowledge of her agency. But it seems that a revamped site feature in 2015 has unveiled the members of the Pledge of Love’s Honor Society.
A representative from Pledge of Love stated – “Moon Geun Young is one of the largest contributors who has consistently made donations. Although she had donated anonymously, the faces of the members of the Honor Society have been revealed since 2015. Moon Geun Young’s constant donations have become well known, and we would like for it to contribute to the formation of a developed culture of donation in our society.”
Moon Geun Young’s agency Namoo Actors stated – “As donations are something that are done in private, the agency did not know about it, either. It is a kind deed, but she had not wanted this to be publicized so it was something she had done consistently in silence.”
We applaud her wonderfully kind deed and hope to see her in a new drama soon!
