Park Hae-jin makes do­na­tion

JoongAng Daily - - K - Pop -

Korean ac­tor Park Hae- jin do­nated 100 mil­lion won ($94,047) for se­niors liv­ing alone in Gury­ong Vil­lage, the shan­ty­town lo­cated in Gae­podong, south­ern Seoul. A por­tion of the money will also go to se­nior com­mu­nity cen­ters within the vil­lage, ac­cord­ing to WM En­ter­tain­ment, Park’s agency.

The 31-year-old Park, who cur­rently ap­pears in the OCN drama se­ries “Bad Boys,” also plans to visit the vil­lage soon to de­liver coal bri­quettes, an im­por­tant fuel source for se­niors dur­ing win­ter.

“Park has been mak­ing do­na­tions and do­ing vol­un­teer work for se­niors with­out fam­i­lies,” a spokesper­son for Park’s agency said in a press re­lease yes­ter­day.

Park has re­ceived praise for his por­trayal of a psy­chopath on “Bad Boys.”

The show cen­ters on a group of crim­i­nals who band to­gether to go up against another big­ger group of gang­sters. Park plays Lee Jung-moon, a psy­cho­pathic math prodigy who is the youngest se­rial mur­derer among them.

The ac­tor is hugely popular in China, and the Satur­day-Sun­day drama se­ries has had more than 10 mil­lion views on Chi­nese videostream­ing web­sites.
