SM Artists Dress Up For Gala Charity Event With UNICEF And Vogue Korea
On November 19, SM Entertainment held the event known as “SMTOWN Gala Charity Night 2018.”
The event was attended by SM founder Lee Soo Man, general CEO Kim Young Min, secretary-general of the Korean Committee for UNICEF Lee Ki Chul, Dusan Magazine representative Park Seo Won, and about 80 other attendees and SM artists.
The charity campaign was held together with UNICEF Korea and Vogue Korea to raise money for music education for children in Vietnam. During the event, Lee Soo Man said, “SM works to produce good music, good contents, and good artists, and to repay the love that we receive from people in return. We have launched ‘SMile,” through which SM’s artists and employees can volunteer their skills and perform community service together, and will continue to do these activities in the future. We want to bring light to the world through good music and content.”
SM partnered with UNICEF in 2016 to sponsor the children’s music education program “SMile for U” and Super Junior’s Choi Siwon has been volunteering in person with the campaign in Vietnam. SM’s official social contribution project, “Smile,” launched in 2014, along with the “SMile Music Festival” through which its artists volunteer their time and talents towards the promotion of good causes.
