Eunhyuk recently starred on an episode of Night of Real Entertainment, where he was interviewed as one of the Korean celebrities that has donated to help the fight against COVID-19.
While Super Junior as a group donated 10,000 masks that were to be given to children and youth welfare services back on January 29, Eunhyuk made a separate personal donation a month later on February 28. His generous donation of 100 million won (about $84,300 USD) was donated to the Hope Bridge Disaster Relief Association to help supply masks and other supplies for medical staff.
While on the show, he talked about his inspiration for his personal donation, which was about his mother’s past ill health.
My mother suffered a lot due to a lung disease last year, so I became even more worried about the coronavirus. I made the decision [to donate] out of hope that more people wouldn’t suffer due to the coronavirus.
He continued by saying he was inspired by other celebrities that were donating, and hoped that seeing such donations would bring hope and relief to those who were afraid.
Seeing many stars doing good deeds made me think that if public figures donated and articles were published, good news like this might give strength and hope to those going through a hard time.
He concluded by sending his well-wishes to everyone dealing with the coronavirus, and to the health workers fighting hard to help people.
To those having a difficult time due to the coronavirus and to those working hard everywhere, please take good care of your health. Hang in there.
Thank you for your donation, Eunhyuk!
