Korean actress volunteers in Nepal, gets caught in 2nd quake When she heard about the earthquake that hit Nepal on April 25, actress Kim Hyun Joo knew what she had to do. The 38-year-old rearranged her work schedule, just so she could fly to Gorkha on Monday (May 11) night to volunteer for a week. But the Korean beauty, best known for her Cinderella-like role in Korean dramas Glass Slippers (2002), had to temporarily stop helping others - and take shelter too - when the second quake hit yesterday (May 12). BBC News reported that yesterday's 7.3-magnitude tremor near Mount Everest left at least 48 dead and 1,000 people injured. The first 7.8-magnitude tremor killed more than 8,000 people. Korean news websites K-pop Herald, Yonhap News Agency and Allkpop reported she is safe and has since resumed with medical care and life-saving supply distribution. Kim, a graduate of Dankook University, is famed for her interest in charity work. She is in Nepal through Good Neighbours, an international non-profit humanitarian organisation that focuses on child education, community development and emergency relief projects. The outfit has fundraising offices in Korea and the US. A spokesman for Good Neighbours said: "Kim Hyun Joo expressed an interest in flying to the region as soon as (she heard about) the earthquake." Besides supply distribution, she also reports on the condition of children whom Good Neighbours support. Kim Hyun Joo is one of the aid workers in Nepal helping the earthquake victims.

@tunquat yeah KBS lady action just has 2 eps, the first ep is about they are learning action, the 2nd ep was the water vs fire. which Kim Hyun Joo chose water, then they practise for their short movie, and that is it. The show is too short, i thought I would see her every weekend too, but too bad it only has 2 eps.
@JeanStar thank you so much for the news dear, i think they would stay longer than their schedule, like it stated in other news, but i hope Hyun Joo unnie would have a great time helping people there, I hope she comes back safety and I bet people in Korea admire her a lot.
@tunquat she is also my idol and a star who I want to be like. I hope to hear more news from her. I think that people in de entertainment industry are admiring her. Do you watch her new show Lady Action, she is funny in that show right?? love her on the show so much.

Actress Kim Hyun Joo revealed to have taken shelter during Nepal's second earthquake while volunteering Actress Kim Hyun Joo proved to be beautiful both in and out as it was revealed by the International Organization of Relief and Development, Good Neighbors, that she had arrived in Gorkha, Nepal on the night of May 11 to volunteer her services for a week. However, she experienced some bumps in her service trip as on the afternoon of May 12, she was heading out of Gorkha to a more damaged area with 15 members of the medical team when another earthquake hit. As a result, they had to quickly evacuate to a safe location. Good Neighbors had a phone conversation with Yonhap News, revealing, "We just managed to get in contact with the people there. We've confirmed that they are all safe. As the area has falling rock, we plan to be on standby until stability is secured."
