Following donation of Lee Young Ae, K-Pop band U-KISS members Soohyun (수현), Kiseop (기섭), and Hoon (훈) also donated 10 million KRW (~8,200 USD) on March 3, 2022. They were also the first K-Pop group to publicly announce and provide support for Ukraine.
Not to mention that 'U-Kiss' sounds like 'Ukies' - American English slang word which is an adjectival shortening of the word 'Ukrainians', whether diaspora or native. Example:
DISCLAIMER: The purpose of my 'Korean Celebrities Supports Ukraine' series of posts is to show you, guys, that there are lots of people all around the world, in particular in Korea, people you may have never even heard of. But these people are not indifferent to Ukraine (although many of them haven't ever been in Ukraine or haven't even had a Wikipedia page in Ukrainian), they knows about your struggle and suffering, and they do care. We do care.
I've told this to my Ukrainian friends and I'm telling you all: whatever happens, Ukraine is not alone. You are not alone.
So you should not be discouraged, you should stay strong-willed and keep fighting for your freedom. Sure you will be victorious!
Glory to Ukraine and 대한 독립 만세!
