To enhance the medical environment at Seoul National University Children’s Hospital, singer and actor Lee Seung Gi recently contributed 2 billion KRW (about US$1.6m).

Lee Seung Gi decided to sponsor the medical environment improvement fund after touring Seoul National University Children’s Hospital and became sympathetic to the structural issues children’s hospitals face that result in inadequacies when treating children.

Seoul National University Children’s Hospital will use the donation to reduce hospital room fees and upgrade outdated facilities so that children receiving treatment in the hospital can do so in a comfortable setting. Additionally, some of the wards enhanced by the sponsor’s wishes will be referred to as “Lee Seung Gi’s ward.”

According to Lee Seung Gi, “Low birth rate is a national issue, and children’s healthy development and happiness can create a bright future in Korea.” We hope this sponsorship will provide an opportunity to create a space for kids and get social attention. As one-time funding is limited, we promise to keep helping them.

Kim Yeon Soo continued, “All faculty members at Seoul National University Hospital will work together to help treat children and improve their overall growth.” Meanwhile, in 2019, Lee Seung Gi funded auxiliary equipment for medical rehabilitation and medical expenses for pediatric patients.
