The non-profit relief organization, Christian Relief Fund, solicited the help of Park's fan club, dubbed "Bogum Ilbo," in providing solar lamps to electricity-scarce African countries. The solar lamps would aid community spaces, health posts, community police, youth centers, among others, in the country that suffers from ceaseless power deficiency.

On June 10, Park's fans donated about 2 million won ($1,793) to Korea's Child Cancer Foundation in celebration of the actor's 23rd birthday. The fans hope that those children whose fighting with cancer will recover as soon as possible and smile even brighter.

Another group of Park's fans raised funds to build a clean water well in Cambodia and donated hundreds of desks and chairs for the children in China. Fans who partook in these meaningful donations told Soompi, "We wanted to be a good influence."

Park made his acting debut in the 2011 film, "Blind" and gained acclaim with his diverse range of roles in television dramas: playing a psychopathic attorney in 2015's "Hello Monster" and a genius Baduk player in tvN's "Reply 1988."

Currently, he plays the real-life Crown Prince Lee Yeong in the historical drama "Moonlight Drawn By Clouds." The drama premiered on Aug. 22, Monday, with a nationwide TV rating of 8.3 percent.

The 18-episode drama, which also stars Kim Yoo Jung, Jung Jin-Young, Chae Soo-Bin and Kwak Dong-Yeon, revolved around Lee Yeong's (Park) transformation and growth from a boy to a respected ruler. It also follows his unlikely relationship with a street-savvy woman, Hong Ra-On (Kim), who ends up cross-dressing as his political eunuch.

During the drama's press conference at the Times Square in western Seoul on Aug. 18, Park uncovered the factors why he chose to star in KBS 2TV's "Moonlight Drawn by Clouds."

"As soon as I read the script, I really wanted to get on board," The Korea Herald quoted Park as saying before a predominantly Korean crowd. "It was hard at first to find a balance, but I talked a lot with the writers."
