Park Shin Hye, Kim Woo Bin and other Korean celebrities auction personal items for children in need
Next Tuesday, items owned by a number of South Korean celebrities will be auctioned off to benefit children in need. Among those taking part in this charity are Lee Seung Chul, Bae Yong Jun, Kim Woo Bin, Park Shin Hye and others.
Founded in 2005, K Auction specializes in offering contemporary, modern, and traditional Korean art, along with international art, to collectors in Seoul, Hong Kong, and all around the world. When the company first started, the Korean auction market was worth only 10.2 billion won, but now, over 10 years later, the industry generates almost 200 billion won a year. And now as the premiere art auction house in Korea , K Auction has decided to put their name to good use by announcing a charity auction for children in need, and a number of Korean celebrities and household names have decided to take part.
Lee Seung Chul has offered his guitar, while new father Bae Yong Jun has donated a bottle of wine that's been specially produced for him. Kim Woo Bin has given a few men's suits, and Park Shin Hye has put up a handbag. Besides those items, a pair of autographed skates owned by former figure skater Kim Yu Na and a putter by golfer Park In Bee will also be auctioned. Unfortunately, the charity auction seems to only be open for Korean residents. Charities for a good cause are always a good thing. Here's hoping that all items offered on Tuesday at this celebrity auction get purchased for a large amount of money, so some kids in Korea that need help can actually get it.
