Yoo Jae Suk donated 50 million won ($41,611 USD) to the victims of the 2019 Sokcho fire through the Hope Bridge Association of the National Disaster Relief.
But despite the generous donation that Yoo Jae Suk made along with many celebrities of Korea, the famous TV host is receiving both positive and negative responses.
In contrast to those commending Yoo Jae Suk for contributing to help the victims of the unfortunate event, some netizens are harshly criticizing Yoo Jae Suk for not donating enough.
Some of the malicious comments include, “You should’ve at least donated 200 million won ($166,446 USD). Are you kidding me?” and, “I thought he’d at least donate 100 to 200 million won ($83,223 – $166,446 USD). Is he out of money now that Infinity Challenge is over?”
In March 2019, Yoo Jae Suk also donated 50 million won ($41,611 USD) to a foundation supporting single mothers, and within the span of the last 6 years, he has donated over 400 million won ($332,492 USD).
But that’s not all. Yoo Jae Suk has also been known to actively engage in donation activities for causes such as comfort women and victims of damage caused by excessive rainfall, which has been making many other netizens frown upon those who left such malicious comments about Yoo Jae Suk’s contribution.
