Comedian Yoo Jae-suk on Thursday donated W50 million to a shelter for victims of World War II sex slavery, the House of Sharing (US$1=W1,155).
Yoo Jae-suk wants W30 million to be used for the construction of a memorial hall for the victims of the Japanese atrocity and W20 million for their welfare, the shelter said.
Last year Yoo gave W40 million and in 2014 W20 million. Yoo has been the biggest single donor to the House of Sharing.
"Despite his reluctance to publicize his donations, we've decided to announce them in gratitude for everything he did for the victims despite his busy schedule," the shelter added.
