"Kim Hyun Joong Powerful S. My Club" made a 10 million won donation to the Beautiful Foundation on August 1st. After learning of this, Kim Hyunjoong then provided a 50 million won donation to the same organization on August 3rd. Beautiful Foundation is a non profit organization that assists senior citizens that live alone.

Representatives of the Beautiful Foundation said, "Kim Hyunjoong came back to Korea on August 2nd after finishing his fan meeting tour of Asia. He heard the news that his fan club made a donation to help needy people and decided to donate fifty million won, touched by his fan club members who participated in the good work."

The executive director of the Beautiful Foundation, Kim Mikyung, surprised by the idol's gesture, stated, "There were many fan clubs who joined their celebrities’ good work, but it’s unusual for a celebrity to respond to his or her fan club’s donation. It proves that Korea’s fandom culture has become very mature along with the culture of donation."

The money will be divided by the Beautiful Foundation and used to contribute to different causes. 30 million won will be used to help the senior citizens and 20 million will be used to contribute to college students.
