Bae Yong-joon’s fans donate to the LSH Foundation

It’s amazing what lengths fans go to to show their love and support for their favourite Hallyu star.

In conjunction with Bae Yong-joon’s 37th birthday on Aug 29, the People Who Love Bae Yong-joon fan club (PESASA) donated approximately 9.4mil won (RM 26,550) to the Lee Soo-hyun (LSH) Asia Scholarship foundation. The LSH foundation supports Asian students who are studying in Japan.

Lee Soo-hyun was a Korean studying in Japan. On Jan 26, 2001 the selfless man jumped onto the subway tracks at the Shin-Okubo Station to save a drunken Japanese who had fallen over. Lee was killed.

PESASA is a Japan-based fan club that initiated the project for their beloved BYJ. The group rounded up fans from Tokyo, Hokkaido, Aomori and Fukuoka to make the project a success. Two hundred and six BYJ fans donated to the cause, which their idol whole-heartedly supports.

This rather unique birthday present has taken BYJ by surprise. A rep from his agency is flabbergasted by the show of generosity and grateful to the fans for their contribution.

Apart from that, BYJ is set to publish a book in September. The book, which the fans have translated to The Journey in Search of Beauty of Korea, contains information on the culture and traditions of Korea as well as interesting sights of the country.

BYJ, who is lovingly known as Yonsama in Japan, will fly to the land of the rising sun to promote the book on Sept 29 and 30.
