It’s been revealed that MBLAQ's Lee Joon made a donation of 10 million won ($9,600 USD) to aid relief efforts for the Sewol ferry tragedy.
A rep from the Community Chest of Korea stated on April 24, "We didn’t know it was Lee Joon at first as he donated under his birth name Lee Chang Sun. He said it was his first time donating to the organization and apologized for the small sum."
Though many celebrities have donated to the cause, Lee Joon is one of the few idol stars to come forward to aid relief efforts. His agency also commented that he did not inform them that he’d made a donation.
Lee Joon previously donated rice wreaths sent in by his fans to congratulate him for his movie ‘An Actor is an Actor’, MBLAQ’s anniversaries, and other events.
