Actor Kim Seonho secretly donated $47K to children's charity, fans call him an angel
While the media was ruffling through the issue of Kim Seon-ho’s controversial private life, the 35-year-old actor was trying to introspect by engaging in a series of good deeds that have gone public now in February, months after his ‘quiet donations’. On February 14, a news report from Munhwa Ilbo, a daily newspaper in South Korea, went viral, where it was revealed that Seon-ho had donated generously to a cause he was dedicated to.
Munhwa Ilbo reported that back in December 2021, Kim Seon-ho (Kim Seonho), who was last seen in the Netflix and tvN K-drama ‘Hometown Cha Cha Cha’, had donated 50 million won (47,000 USD) to Korea Leukemia Children’s Foundation. Due to the raging controversy around his name at that time, his good deeds were not revealed to the public.

Fans are extremely supportive of the actor, as they believe the story of Kim Seon-ho donating to a cause related to young children is him trying to emotionally recover from the abortion controversy. As the story of his last K-drama, ‘Hometown Cha Cha Cha’, goes, the character of Jo Nam-sook donates to orphans after losing her child; fans of Kim Seon-ho are associating his act of donation as his way of introspection and reflection.
I remember I had a discussion about Homecha with a Psychiatrist. We discussed about how Namsook was able to heal from losing her child. What she did? She donated. Donating & doing good are great ways for healing process. That's what Seonho do. That's what Homcha told us.— ra ◡̈ (@coffeedorkmate) February 14, 2022
It was also reported that SALT Entertainment, the agency that manages the activities of the actor, had requested that his generous act not be revealed to the public as he wanted to keep it a secret. Kim Seon-ho’s fans, who have just heard the news of his donation, are calling him an angel for keeping his donations sincere and continuous, as he had first donated 100 million won in January 2021, among other donations.
Seon-ho had promised ‘continuous support’ to the foundation and was keeping the promise he made despite going through a rough spot in his personal life. Seon-ho’s act of selflessness has made his fans extremely proud of him for taking the time out to help support a cause he is dedicated to. Seon-ho, who was on a hiatus, is currently working on his new project titled ‘Sad Tropical’ (aka Sad Tropics), where he plays the owner of a tteokbokki shop in Jeju Island that will be released in 2022.
