Yoo Jae-suk victimised by blind criticism

1 Nov – Even the gentlest of men like the beloved Korean host Yoo Jae-suk are have haters, as the man recently found himself facing anti-fans, who claimed that he is selfish despite being wealthy, according to koreaboo.

"He has so much money and yet he doesn't donate it," they criticised.

On an interview on 27 October, entertainer Kim Jae-dong stated, "I recently donated KRW 7,000 to a charity" and was backed up by the Twitter account for that charity. In response, one Twitter user wrote "Kang Ho-dong and Yoo Jae-suk need to learn from him".

However, true to the old adage that "Kindness is a language, which the blind can see and the deaf can hear", Yoo was defended by others that know his benevolence without the need for him to defend himself.

The charity responded that Jae-suk had already donated beforehand, silencing the Twitter user at once.

Yoo Jae-suk has been donating money secretly to not bring attention to himself. For many years now, the top variety show host has been constantly donating money to various charities.

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.
