According to Chosun Ilbo, the June 15 match will be the first activity undertaken by the "JS Foundation" that Park Ji-Sung has established. The charity foundation was introduced to the media on February 7.

The match will see former and current famous players like French left fullback and Park's teammate at United, Patrice Evra, former Japanese player Hidotoshi Nakata and Park himself.

Other South Korean players, Lee Chung-yong and Ki Sung-yueng, who play for England's Bolton Wanderers and Scotland's Celtic respectively, will also play.

South Korean website MBN said the JS Foundation would also bring to Vietnam famous South Korean pop group, JYJ, who will perform during the half-time break.

"We want to contribute to improving football in Southeast Asia through projects that cooperate with football federations of the countries in the region," the foundation said.

The match in Vietnam was chosen as JS Foundation's first stop because of strong support from the Vietnam Football Federation and a huge fan-following for Park.

"JS Foundation is a new start and the final destination in my football career," Park said. "I want to do something really significant through football to share with the world."
