Actor Jang Keun-suk has donated 7,100 kg of rice to the Gangnam District Office in southern Seoul to be used to help undernourished children and elderly people who live alone.
The district office said Wednesday that Jang sent 710 bags of rice, each weighing 10 kg, to the district through his agency.
The rice was originally given to the celebrity by his fans while he was filming his latest drama, "Love Rain."
"I'm always thankful for my fans' support," said Jang. "I will keep helping others."
Also last December, he donated W10 million (US$1=W1,130) to a welfare center for children in need that was having difficulty raising funds to install equipment to meet its energy needs.
