'Asia's Prince' and Hallyu Star Jang Keun Suk donated 7.1 tons of rice for the underprivileged of Gangnam.

Gangnamgu released an official statement on Tuesday that Jang Keun Suk's donation was able to give a free meal to 58,900 hard-to-do citizens.

The 7.1 tons were donated by fans a little by little for his recent drama, "Love Rain." The rice will be given to poverished children, elders who live alone and the disabled and given to an organization called "Moving Food Market" who goes to these small populations and ensures that they are fed. 

Gangnamgu is the district with the 8th highest number of poverished people but it's known to be a rich neighborhood and the poor in Gangnamgu received even less attention. Jang Keun Suk, after deciding to donate the rice, said, "I always thank my fans for their love and support. I'm only giving back what I was able to receive and that's where the idea for this donation came about. I want to continue to share and give."

He also donated 10,000,000 Won to support an orphanage in Gangnam, who were unable to pay for the change from oil boilers to gas boilers, so that they can all have a warm winter. 

A source from Gangnamgu said, "We thank Jang Keun Suk and his fans for giving to the citizens of Gangnamgu who are suffering. We hope that this kind of charity and giving spirit will continue to spread to all of Seoul."
