"Good Star" is a donation platform service that supports the positive influence of celebrities.

The prize money donated by Young Tak under his name in the "King Competition" will be used for the medical expenses of children suffering from pediatric cancer, leukemia, and rare incurable diseases. The Korea Children's Cancer Foundation's support program covers surgery costs and hospital treatment expenses for children diagnosed with pediatric cancer, leukemia, and rare incurable diseases aged 25 and under. The program provides support ranging from a minimum of 5 million won to a maximum of 30 million won, including surgery expenses, hospital treatment expenses, transplant costs, purchase of rare medications, and support for hospital assistive devices.
