Turns out actress Lee Il-hwa had secretly done a good deed that will warm your heart.
Officials of a visually impaired facility in Incheon said, “Lee Il-hwa saw the article about the fund we recently started for Misoon, a visually impaired pianist girl at our place, and Lee Il-hwa made donations for us to afford instruments for students who dream about music despite their visual disability, just like Misoon.”
The donation is planned to be used to buy instruments for a symphony orchestra consisting of visually impaired students in Incheon Hae-Kwang School. No information is given on the amount of the donation.
Lee had once discussed the happiness she feels when she does a good deed. “I feel very happy when I donate to a Non-governmental organization. God helps me feel both the joy of acting and the happiness of sharing. I wish to continue acting and share even more.”
Lee is also the honorary ambassador for the incorporated association ‘Global Civic Sharing’ that provides development aid to needy communities. She also supports the missionary school ‘SISIM Mission School.’
Lee acted as Mipoong’s (acted by Lim Ji-yeon) mother Joo Young-ae in the MBC drama ‘Blow Breeze.’ She currently appears in the KBS2 drama ‘Good Manager’ as President Park Hyun-do’s wife Jang Yoo-sun.
