JYP Entertainment, under the leadership of producer and singer J.Y. Park, and its associated artists have initiated a significant philanthropic movement, emphasizing consistent and genuine generosity rather than mere displays of charity.

In a remarkable demonstration of personal commitment, J.Y. Park has contributed 20 billion KRW from his private funds spanning two years, allocating 10 billion KRW annually.

His 2022 donation of 5 billion KRW to World Vision for international medical assistance earned him recognition in the ‘Bob Pierce Honor Club.’

Moreover, in the same year, he equally divided 5 billion KRW between World Vision and Samsung Seoul Hospital, followed by 2 billion KRW donations to five prominent regional hospitals in Korea the subsequent year.
