Being Roy Kim is either remarkable or unremarkable, depending on the day, because he is famous only in certain places. In South Korea, his face has appeared on billboards advertising Cass beer, and his fans, who call themselves Royroses, frequently propose marriage via Twitter.
In Washington, D.C., he is an anonymous student, albeit an unusually handsome one, with perfect skin. On a recent spring day, he walked east into Georgetown the neighborhood from Georgetown the university, where he is a sophomore.
The young lad has been revealed to have donated 4 million KRW (approximately 3,500 USD) to a patient suffering from neurofibroma.
An insider told Ilgan Sports, “Roy Kim donated 4 million KRW for rare disease neurofibroma patient Shim Kyun Hee’s surgery.” Roy Kim is in USA right now, but he saw the broadcast about the patient on TV and decided to donate 2 million KRW twice to the surgery.
