Ji Chang-wook joins the number of Hallyu stars who donated to prevent the spread of COVID-19. He donated 100 million won (P4M) to Daegu through Red Cross Korea to aid the confirmed patients of the coronavirus disease .
A representative of the Daegu Red Cross said that the actor wants to be a little help to citizens who are having a lot of difficulties. South Korea has confirmed 256 new coronavirus cases, thus increasing the total to 2,022 on Feb. 28. Daegu City is the epicenter of the outbreak in the country.
The money he donated will be used to buy medical support to treat confirmed patients of Daegu. It will also be used to buy products for hygiene to prevent further spread of the disease.
After he got discharged from military service last year, Ji waived his talent fee to pose for the Big Issue magazine to benefit the homeless.
The actor has starred in numerous dramas including “Melting Me Softly,” “Healer” and “Empress Ki.” He is also one of the lifestyle brand Bench’s current ambassador.
