Actor Lee Jung-jae revealed the motivation for his donation, “Whenever I heard rumors that seniors who dedicated their youth to movies are living laboriously with poverty and illness, I felt sorry as one of the juniors who basked in the afterglow of the seniors. It was painful when I occasionally learned of their lonely departure.”
