Here's how Descendants of the Sun lead Song Hye Kyo wins more fans for Korea

'I get very sad and disappointed ... it harms my pride as a citizen of Korea'

The female lead from the popular series 'Descendants of the Sun', Song Hye Kyo, has proved her love for Korea, yet again.

Reportedly, the 34-year-old has donated Korean language brochures to the Statue of Liberty in New York. Commenting on her act of solidarity, the actress stated that she feels sad when the information brochures available at archeological sites reads in every language but not in her mother tongue, Korean.

"Whenever I travel for work or leisure, I see brochures in Chinese and Japanese at various archaeological sites and museums, but no Korean brochures. I get very sad and disappointed by that. It also harms my pride as a citizen of Korea," the actress told Allkpop.

This is not the first time Hye Kyo has shown her desire to promote Korean language.

A few weeks back, the actress released approximately 10,000 Korean language brochures towards the Provisional Government Building of the Republic of Korea at Changsha, China, in collaboration with professor Seo Kyung Deok of Sungshin Women's University. The brochure included information about government building in Changsha and other tourist spots in Korean language.

Sharing her insights on the promotion of her mother tongue, the actress told koogle: "There are still quite a few archaeological sites that do not have Korean language brochures. I hope something little like this can help visitors even in a small way."
