‘A Business Proposal’ star Kim Se-jeong donates 10 million won to Ukrainian refugees
With great power comes great responsibility and this phrase stands true for singer and actress Kim Se-jong who is currently the main lead on Netflix’s popular K-drama, ‘A Business Proposal’, which is based on a webtoon of the same name starring actor Ahn Hyo-seop and Se-jong as main leads. All actors on the show are gaining a lot of popularity all thanks to the global reach of K-dramas these days and Se-jeong is showing why she is worth all the love she is getting with her heartwarming donation.
While many K-drama or K-pop celebrities are not openly donating to those suffering in Ukraine due to the political condition surrounding the situation, fans are glad to see some sort of help being extended to the victim of the ongoing war. Back in early March, it was announced that Siwan, an actor from the show ‘Run On’ who is also a K-pop idol from the boy group ZE:A performed a kind act in charity by donating 20 million won booking an Airbnb in Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital with no intention of showing up keeping it reserved for locals to find shelter in trying times.

Kim Se-jeong’s heartwarming donation has fans reeling as on March 31 it was announced that she had recently donated 10 million won ($8,256) to the Community Chest of Korea for Fruit of Love in order to help war refugees in Ukraine. This is also one of the very few donations from a Korean celebrity that is made public due to the political tension between all countries involved in the war. The donated amount from Se-jeong aka 10 million won translates to ₴ 242,972 (Ukrainian hryvnia) which is a generous donation for the victims of the ongoing war.
In her official statement that was released with the news Se-jeong said, “I participated in the donation to support Ukrainian refugees who are suffering from the loss of their livelihoods due to the war.” It is stated that the donation made from Se-jeon will be used to provide relief supplies such as water, food, and first aid kits for refugees who have fled to Ukraine and neighboring countries through the International Cooperation Private Council (KCOC).
Not only this but Kim Se-jeong has been involved in many other charitable activities such as donations to help prevent the damage related to the spread of Covid-19 as well as donations to help the victims of forest fires. Back in 2021, she participated as an advertising model for the Fruit of Love trust and donated 20 million won in the last year alone.
