Shinhwa’s Kim Dongwan donates to Korea’s Comfort Women

Shinhwa’s Kim Dongwan has donated 30 million won ($27,994) to help the plight of Comfort Women, Korean women forced into sex-slavery by Japan during WWII.

The producers of KBS’ ‘Love Request’ revealed that Kim Dongwan had recently donated 30 million won to the 58 surviving comfort women in Korea and expressed his hopes that they would receive an apology in their life.

Kim Dongwan has a long history of donating through the ‘Love Request’ starting with helping out the victims of the 2003 Daegu Subway fire disaster. Since then, he’s often donated to helping the needy at home and abroad.

A representative for Liveworks Company shared, “Dongwan has been donating without even telling the label. He shared his donation this time so it would bring the attention of the public of helping the surviving 58 people who suffered as comfort women.”
