Han Ji Min proves, once again, that not only is she one of Korea’s most beautiful actresses, but she’s also one of the most kind-hearted.
According to the actress’s agency BH Entertainment, On August 10, Han Ji Min donated ₩50.0 million KRW (about $38,100 USD) to the Community Chest Of Korea, a non profit charity organization. The charity is Korea’s only government-sanctioned charity in Korea and its largest.
It has been reported that the donation will be given to welfare facilities for the disabled. The actress revealed what compelled her to donate to the charity.
I learned about a welfare facility for the disabled through the news. I also learned they had suffered hardship caused by the recent flood.

The Secretary General of the charity thanked the actress in a statement and revealed that Han Ji Min has steadily donated to the charity.
We want to thank Han Ji Min for her continued community service and charitable donations. Her donation will be a great help to the welfare facility, and we will do our best to promptly provide the facility support.

On the evening of August 8, Seoul was hit record rainfall that resulted in parts of the city flooding. It has been reported that 13 people were killed in the flood.

The drama received widespread praise for its portrayal of a loved one living with Down Syndrome, as well as featuring Jung Eun Hye, who is an actress that has Down Syndrome in real life.
