South Korea has been experiencing consecutive weeks of rain, their wettest monsoon season in the last seven years. At least 15 people have died and more than 1,500 individuals have been displaced due to floods and landslides.
The Korea Disaster Relief Association has asked for donations to help the flood victims and among those who heeded the call were some of the top Hallyu stars.
