On February 5, singer Lee Seung Gi donated 5.88 tons of rice (worth about 13 million won) to help neighbors in need in Nowon-gu, Seoul.

The rice was received by Lee Seung Gi from his fans at events like his concert, birthday, and etc. According to Nowon-gu, the 5.88 tons of rice donated by Lee Seung Gi is enough to feed 50,000 children. Nowon-gu plans to distribute the rice to underprivileged groups in the area, including people receiving national basic livelihood security, lower-income families, and single-parent families.

Kim Sung Hwan, the commissioner of Nowon-gu, said, “I feel proud that Lee Seung Gi sshi, who graduated from SangGye High School in Nowon-gu, has grown up as a remarkable young man who knows how to help neighbors in need. And I hope the many celebrities who are popular among fans will continue to do good deeds for underprivileged people.”
