Girls’ Generation’s Yoona has become a major donor.

According to an affiliate of Community Chest of Korea (President Lee Yeon Bae, aka Seoul Fruit of Love) on January 2, “SNSD’s member Yoona, who is actively promoting as a singer and an actress, became the first member of Honor Society in the new year.”

Yoona has been helping out those in the low-income group every year through year-end donations since 2010. The celebrities who have joined previously include entertainer Hyun Young (first celebrity to join, joined 2009, number 12), actress Soo Ae (joined 2012, number 200), singer Hyun Sook (joined 2013, number 283) and Kim Bo Sung (first male celebrity to join, joined 2014, number 568).

Yoona stated, “I didn’t want this to be announced publicly at first because I wanted to help out the neighbors in need quietly. But I think it’s also important to give along with many other people. As I entered the new year of 2015, I wanted to contribute to expanding the culture of giving by joining Honor Society,” and added, “As I have done until now, I would like to continue to give in order to help out the underprivileged.”

President Lee Yeon Bae of Seoul Fruit of Love stated, “It takes a lot of hard work and determination in order to do something steadily,” and explained, “We are expecting that Yoona’s good deeds, giving unchangingly for five years, will become a great example and increase the citizens’ interest in loving their neighbors.”

Recently cast as the lead of a Chinese historical drama Wu Shen Zhao Zi Long, Yoona will begin filming in January. Yoona previously won the Best New Actress and Most Popular Female in Television awards from the Baeksang Arts Award for the KBS drama You Are My Destiny and won the Excellence Award from KBS Drama Awards for Prime Minister and I, proving her popularity and acting ability through a number of projects.

Honor Society is an organization for individual donors that allow the leaders of the society to pay attention to the society’s problems and participate in giving.
