Choi Kang-hee, who received oodles of attention for her role in "My Scary Girl", catches the public's attention AGAIN with her donation of Hematopoietic Stem Cells for leukemia patients!
The actress tried to keep the contribution a secret, but the media found out soon after. Once the secret was out, the public responded with glowing praise - more so because she kept her good deed an unofficial event!
Choi Kang-hee was in the middle of filming "My Love", a movie set for an early 2008 release, when she received a call from the hospital. It was the hospital that she had signed an agreement with in 1999, for the donation of stem cells.
The hospital had a leukemia patient who was a compatible donor recipient to Choi Kang-hee. She quietly asked "My Love" producers for a day-off and went to the hospital for the procedure.
Choi Kang-hee is the FIRST Korean celebrity to donate her bone marrow and we applaud her for her INCREDIBLY praise-worthy deed.
