The city of Gwangju, South Korea, received a donation of 9.5 tons of rice to give to its low-income elderly and children this week, thanks to the combined efforts of fan clubs of TVXQ leader U-Know Yunho.

Fan clubs from China, Japan, Malaysia, Russia, Taiwan and Peru gathered their resources to send 474 20-kilogram bags — worth an estimated $24,000 — to the city, according to the Community Chest of Korea.

The city is the K-pop idol’s home town.

The 9.5 tons was only a part of the 35.938 tons gathered in total by Yunho fans in celebration of web drama “I Order You,” for which he was a lead.

Donated rice will be distributed among five city regions, Community Chest said.

“Yunho’s love for his home city of Gwangju is well-known among us fans,” a fan who participated in the effort told Yonhap. “Fans have been sending scholarship money to Yunho’s alma mater for years.”

Yunho, 29, entered his 21-month mandatory military service in July.
