Yoo Ah-in donates rice to noodle shop


Actor Yoo Ah-in has donated an enormous amount of rice – 2,140 tons, to be exact – to a charitable noodle shop in Hwasu-dong, Incheon.


According to a representative from the drama “Fashion King” in which Yoo stars, the star requested that the rice sent by fans to celebrate the program’s launch be donated to the restaurant on Friday.


The restaurant is well known for its good works in feeding more than 200 customers a day free of charge. The customers are mostly homeless people or elderly citizens who are living on their own.


The owner of the restaurant used his Twitter account on Saturday to say, “Now my customers can eat to their hearts’ content”.

The donation should feed the restaurant’s regulars for at least two months.


The bags of rice were presented to the stars of the current drama “Fashion King” back in March during a press conference at Gimpo International Airport. In the show, Yoo plays Young-geol, who moves to the U.S. to try and break into the fashion industry.


At the press conference, fans of the four leads ~ Yoo Ah In, Shin Se Kyung, Lee Je Hoon, Yuri ~ successfully gathered 3.91 tons of rice donation. The fans were not only from local but also international fans.
