Seoul — South Korean actress Han Ye Seul has donated 50 million won (approximately SGD58,000) to help people recover from COVID-19.

Hope Bridge National Disaster Relief Association, a relief organisation specialising in disaster fundraising said that Han Ye Seul had recently donated 50 million won to the association through her agency.

According to Allkpop, the actress had asked the organisation to use her contribution for those who are alienated and in need of help due to the coronavirus.

She made her acting debut in the sitcom Nonstop 4 (2003), and has since played leading roles in television dramas such as Couple or Trouble (2006), Tazza (2008), and Birth of a Beauty (2014), as well as the films Miss Gold Digger (2007) and Penny Pinchers (2011).
