Jung Yong Hwa may be busy with his military service, but he never forgets to share his blessings to others.
CNBLUE’s Jung Yong Hwa has opened a scholarship program in support of juniors from his high school alma mater Namsan High School in Busan.
At the school’s 28th commencement exercises, the singer-songwriter awarded scholarships to six graduates as assistance in their pursuit for higher education.
The leader of CNBLUE hopes to give more students the chance to further their education by giving out scholarships to six graduates every year.
In addition to the scholarship program, Jung Yong Hwa also made generous donations to the school’s development to fund student scholarships and support for the arts and music.
In the past years, the singer-songwriter has displayed his generosity through supporting charitable causes and making donations for the benefit of children and low-income families.
