As people suffered and even died from Seoul’s record-breaking rain, this actress extended a helping hand.
According to Hodu&U Entertainment on August 10th, their artist, actress Kim Hye Soo, donated 100 million won to the Hope Bridge National Disaster Relief Association on the same day. The donation will be used to help flood victims who are having difficulties in living and recover areas damaged by the torrential rain.
Previously on August 8th and 9th, a record-breaking heavy rain flooded various areas of Seoul, heavily impacting many people’s lives and killing 8 people.
On August 9th, Kim Hye Soo posted on her Instagram story that: “In this 400mm heavy rain, 8 people including 3 members of the same family died and 6 people went missing. The total number of affected people was 391, as death and missing people counts continued to rise”.
The actress then added: “Those who are outside, please return home safely. I hope there will be no further damage.”
This 100 million won donation is not the first time Kim Hye Soo did good deeds. Back in February 2020, the actress donated 100 million won to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In March, she also contributed 100 million won to help victims of the forest fires in Uljin, Gyeongbuk and Samcheok, Gangwon.
