JYJ donation

Old news but whatever. I'm proud I support such men.

ZAK Corporation recently published a report regarding JYJ's donation to aid victims of the recent tsunami/earthquake disaster in Japan.
It has been decided that the proceeds from the JYJ charity concert which took place on June 7, 2011 will be donated in the form of 1,000 NukAlerts, a radiation detector, to the city of Souma in Tachiya Shigeru Kiyoshi Fukushima Prefecture. This was at the emergency request from the mayor of Souma to the Japan-Korea Economics office of the Foreign Affairs Bureau and to ZAK and as a result of discussions with JYJ's agency C-JeS Entertainment.

The city of Souma plans to distribute the radiators to the children and students in the Tamano district in case of another explosion at the Fukushima nuclear plant. Among these, 500 were handed to the government office of the city of Souma on August 12th.

The remaining 500 detectors will be donated to children in kindergartens and nursery schools on Aug 31, 2011 in Tokyo when the representatives of each institution visit Tokyo.

In contrast
Jang Keun Suk recently went shopping in Japan.
On the 28th, a Japanese outlet reported that Jang went shopping in Japan. Jang flew to Japan on the 19th and has been busy shooting several programs.
Jang had one day off and went shopping around 3:00 p.m. at a department store. He went to select shops and bout a long coat, jacket, sneakers, and more, and spent about 6.5 million won in total.
Many Japanese fans rushed into the store to catch a glimpse of Jang. Four or five guards protected Jang from the crowd just in case.
A Japanese fan said, “I couldn’t reach him and I couldn’t take single picture. But I’m happy I got to see him closer.”
Jang shopped for about an hour and ate at a restaurant on the seventh floor and left.
