In the video, TheShy can be heard saying, “I accidentally made a ton of money and don’t know how to spend it,” he said. Revealing the reason behind his donation, he said, “After some talking with my parents, they advised me to do something good, so I donated it.”
The LOL World Champion has unleashed that he has made a donation of more than 100 million Korean won of his salary so far, which roughly translate to $100,000 USD. While he didn’t disclose what charity, or how many he has donated to, the gesture is incredibly thoughtful.
Notably, TheShy joined Invictus Gaming in 2017 as soon as he turned old enough to play in the LoL Pro League (LPL) in China. He has since won three domestic titles and multiple accolades.
However, $100,000 is no small amount of change by any metric, and would help a charity pursue their mission immensely.
