Avid Gong Yoo fans will soon see a different side of the South Korean celebrity. The "Goblin" actor will be playing the role of a merchant for his upcoming bazaar charity project.
Gong Yoo is set to host a special project with his fans specifically a bazaar event to benefit the less fortunate. In a recent announcement by the "Goblin" actor's agency, as obtained by Korea Herald, Management Soop shared that several items from the said celebrity's personal collection will be sold during the event.
The "Train to Busan" star will also play an active role at the said charity bazaar and spend quality time with his fans. Described as an opportunity for Gong Yoo to connect with his loyal followers in a different way and also give back to the community, all the proceeds from the event will be donated to a worthy cause.
