Kim Jang-hoon receives U.S. Presidential Award for volunteer service
SEOUL, July 23 (Yonhap) -- South Korean popular singer Kim Jang-hoon has received the U.S. President's Volunteer Service Award, his management company said Monday.

Kim was given the award during a concert in Los Angeles on Saturday (local time) through a local concert organizer, the management company said.
Kim, known as the "angel of donation," was selected as the winner of the award by the White House for his contributions to the South Korean community and the United States, according to the organizer. The White House may have evaluated the fact that Kim's domestic donations amounted to 15 billion won, that he donated all the proceeds from his concerts in the U.S. and China to local communities, and that he placed ads for public interests in leading U.S. newspapers.
