Forbes Asia, an American business magazine covering the latest news on Asian markets, politics, business, and finance, announced the list of 48 philanthropists in the Asia-Pacific region in its July 21, 2014 issue.

Four Koreans made the list: Mun-Sul Jeong (a former chairman of KAIST's Board of Trustees), Hui-Jeong Park (a wife of the late Dr. Geun-Chul Ryu, a philanthropist who gave the funds to build the Sports Complex in KAIST campus), Yuna Kim (a former Olympics figure skater and a gold and silver medalist), and Nam-Kyu Min (the chairman of JK Group, a plastics and petrochemical products manufacturer).

Mun-Sul Jeong, the founder of Mirae Corp., a semiconductor equipment manufacturing company, donated $21 million to KAIST for brain science research this year. He also donated $235 million to KAIST in 2001 for convergence research in information and business technology.

Hui-Jeong Park, a former professor of nursing at Korea University, endowed a $100,000 scholarship fund for KAIST students in January 2014. Her late husband, Dr. Geun-Chul Ryu, contributed over $55 million in real estate to KAIST, allowing the university to have a new sports facility. He was an eminent doctor of Oriental medicine in Korea and also served as a professor at KAIST.
