Singer and animal rights activist Lee Hyori aroused the curiosity of netizens when she uploaded a picture entitled “Mr. So Ji-sub’s Items” on March 23.
In the photo, a pair of jeans and shoes can be seen with price tags of 250,000 won ($219) for the shoes and 150,000 won for the jeans.
The items were collected by Lee to raise funds for an animal shelter. The charity auction was hosted by the program “Golden 12” on cable TV channel On Style.
Other celebrities to have made donations of personal items were Lim Seul-ong, TVXQ’s U-know Yunho and Miss A’ Suzy.
Lee herself is no stranger to donations. The 32-year-old has previously auctioned personal belongings and donated the profits to the organization Korean Animal Rights Advocates, of which she is a member.
