Park Shin Hye of ?Doctors? Korean drama will be reaching out to her Filipino fans following the success of her current SBS TV series.
The 26-year-old celebrity aims to give back to the people in her latest charity. She will reportedly be putting up a philanthropic center in Manila that will support less-fortunate children through educational activities.
The charitable establishment will be dubbed as ?Shin-hye Centre.?
The actress reportedly visited the Manila site last March and construction is expected to be done by October this year.

The A Times report said that Park Shin Hye?s first charity center was built in Ghana in December 2013. Over 1,000 Ghanaian children have been provided with a library, a playground and basic education programs because of her project.
The South Korean star began her philanthropic efforts five years ago when she became a goodwill ambassador for non-profit group Korea Food for the Hungry International (KFHI). She even volunteered and served in Ghana for nine days.
Some may wonder how Park Shin Hye’s schedule with “Doctors” will allow her to still have time for her charity works. The hospital-based series revolves around the romance between her character, rebel-turned-doctor Yoo Hye Jong, and her mentor, Hong Ji Hong. The male lead role is played by award-winning ?Punch? actor Kim Rae Won.

The medical-themed love story has attracted a dedicated fan base, which Park Shin Hye recently showed on an Instagram post. Just last week, the lead star shared a snapshot of a ?truck full of food? that was reportedly sent by their fans to the set of ?Doctors.? The TV sweetheart thanked her fans, but joked that she is not sure about how she and the production team can eat the truckload of dumplings, fries, and sausages that were sent.
A recent ratings report showed that more TV viewers prefer to watch ?Doctors? over other Korean dramas. It is reportedly on the top spot among competing shows such as MBC?s ?Monster? and KBS 2TV?s ?Beautiful Mind.?
Because of its success, k-drama fans have been abuzz about how ?Doctors? could be the Korean drama that would take the place of ?Descendants of the Sun.? The globally-popular wartime drama rated so high when it ended last April that its producers will reportedly come out with a second season in 2017.
