According to the organization, Choi and Ha pledged support for organ donation on its “Day of Organ Donation,” which fell on Saturday. The couple, together with 100 volunteers of Shinhan Bank, also campaigned for organ donations at an entrance of Mt. Dobong.

Korean Organ Donor Program said that Choi, 49, and Ha, 42, sponsored kidney transplant surgery for identical twin brothers on hemodialysis through the organization in 1995.
