Although celebrations are in order for the conclusion of drama productions, with the mood still grim in light of the Sewol tragedy, drama teams are canceling their wrap-up parties.
On April 21, the production company affiliate for MBC’s Cunning Single Lady revealed that the fees for the drama’s wrap-up party were instead donated to the Korean Salvation Army. The total donation was four million won.
“We set aside a budget just for the wrap-up party dinner, but we decided to have a loud party during this tragedy would not be right” said the staff. “Instead, we decided to use the fees for the rescue operations in the Sewol incident.”
On top of that, Joo Sang Wook donated 30 million won separately to help the families of the victims, after seeing some of the actors on the team gathering money for donations
