Davichi Kang Min Kyung did a good deed by donating 150 million won of YouTube revenue for patients.
On Dec 12th, Kang Min Kyung said through her Instagram, “I had a good trip. I’ll report how the sponsorship money was spent later. Thank you all.“
Recently, Kang Min Kyung donated 150 million won to Yonsei University Health System for children and adolescents. Earlier on Dec 4th, Kang Min Kyung confessed through her YouTube channel, “This year, a total amount of 147,612,402 won is recorded as the total YouTube revenue. This revenue was made through you, my viewers, and I wanted to use this money for a good cause. So I’ve decided to donate the funds to Yonsei Severance Children’s Hospital.“
150 million won is a large amount of money, and Kang Min Kyung was willing to give it to poor and sick teenagers. There is no doubt that this is a move to offset the negative image caused by the controversy over YouTube and Instagram PPL in July 2020.
At that time, a media outlet reported that a product Kang Min Kyung introduced on her YouTube channel and SNS as an item she used on a regular basis was actually an expensive product placement, but she had not marked that the video included a paid sponsorship. Afterwards, she apologized through Instagram.
Kang Min Kyung, who promised “I hope for a nice revenue again in 2023 so that I can use the funds for a good cause“, seems to have begun the process of steadily spreading good influence.
