Comedian Yoo Jae Suk is gaining attention for his latest good deed.
On June 6, a post titled “An acquaintance got a heart transplant...” was posted to a popular online community and has since gone viral.
In the post, a netizen states that his acquaintance, who had struggled with heart complications, was left with a large hospital bill after a heart procedure.
An acquaintance of mine who has heart complications wasn’t able to work for a long time. He was recently given a hospital bill of ₩88.0 million KRW (about $70,100 USD), of which only ₩73.0 million KRW (about $58,200 USD) was paid by insurance, and my acquaintance was left with a ₩15.0 million KRW (about $12,000 USD) bill…
The poster continues on, stating that, thankfully, the hospital had a donor program for those with lower income.
That particular hospital has a system where people can donate money on behalf of lower-income patients. The name of the donor is revealed to only the recipients. My acquaintance received a donation from Yoo Jae Suk…
The poster further explained how, although it is well known that Yoo Jae Suk donates a large amount of money, he has gained a whole new appreciation for Yoo Jae Suk.
He really is a ‘light.’ He made me think, ‘I’m going to spend my money like him.’ I knew he donated a lot of money, but seeing a close acquaintance of mine get help, makes me realize just how much he must have donated. I decided to upload this, although he may not want me to, because I feel stories like this should be shared.
Netizens commented on the post, stating, “He is a goodwill machine,” “God-Jae-Suk,” and “There are always new stories of his good deeds.”
