[TRANS] 101206 Yunho’s Bag For KRW1,000,000; TVXQ Is Also Exremely Popular In Thailand

TVXQ Yunho’s hand-carry bag made the record for the highest bid of KRW1,000,000* at the “Charity Auction by Hallyu Stars for Flood Victims”, held in Bangkok, Thailand.

The “Korea Festival” was held from 30 November – 5 December and it is organised by the Thai-Korean Embassy and the Korea Thailand Communication Centre (KTCC), with the support of the Ministry of Tourism and Sports of Thailand. This auction was organised to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Thai soldiers who fought in the Korean War, as well as give aid to 3,000,000 flood victims.

Cherished items were collected from top Thai stars and popular Hallyu stars like TVXQ, Super Junior, SNSD, Kim Rae Won, Cho Hyunjun and Lee Junki.

The highest amount recorded at the charity auction went to a small hand-carry leather bag and even though there are no special decorations, just by the fact that it had been touched by Yunho’s hand, it was sold at the high price of KRW1,000,000.

Lee Yoohyun, the representative for the KTCC, said, “It was an event where the Hallyu stars could confirm the great love from the Thai fans. Simple items like hats and t-shirts were auctioned off at prices ranging from KRW30,000 – KRW1,000,000.

Meanwhile, the items received from 130 Hallyu stars raised KRW24,000,000 in total and items from Art Korea artists by the Korea-Thai Chamber of Commerce and the Thai branch of the Institute for National Unification raised KRW28,000,000. This fund will be passed to the headquarters of the task force for the Thailand flood on 8 December.

*KRW1,000,000 is approximately USD$882
