Heejun, ‘K-Pop Star 3’ and former ‘American Idol’ contestant, has been reported to have made a donation of 10 million KRW (approx. $9,600) to the families of the Sewol tragedy. Heejun asked his United States agent to send 10 million KRW from his earnings from events and appearances to the grieving families. Heejun also cancelled his upcoming fan meeting in respect.
Heejun stated, "I hope this donation gets directly sent to not the relief efforts but the bereaved families... I have experience losing a close friend due to an accident, so I know that the remaining families' suffering and pain is unimaginable... I want to directly help them."
"Although I have been receiving recruitment offers from many domestic agencies following 'K-Pop Star 3', right now is the time to grieve with the entire nation, so of course, I will put that first before thinking about myself."
