PETALING JAYA, Sept. 20 — South Korean star Lee Ji-eun (better known by her stage name IU) celebrated her 14th year in showbiz by donating to a good cause.
She made her debut as a solo singer with her debut EP FOUND OBJECT September 18, 2008.
Soompi reported that IU’s agency EDAM Entertainment shared the news on Instagram that the actress-singer had donated 200 million won (RM656,000) to the non-profit organization Asan Foundation.
