Hallyu star Song Hye Kyo has made her country proud once again with an enthusiastic devotion for the noble cause.
To commemorate the National Liberation Day of Korea on August 15, the Daegu born actress in collaboration with professor Seo Kyung Deok of Sungshin Women's University donated a total of 10,000 brochures to the Ultoro Village in Japan. Hye Kyo has been associated with this promotional cause for quite some time and occasionally distributes brochures containing historical information of the site in the Korean language.
Commenting on her act of solidarity, the actress previously stated that she feels sad when the information brochures available at archaeological 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.
The Descendent of the Sun star earlier made a donation of Korean language brochures to the Statue of Liberty in New York and towards the Provisional Government Building of the Republic of Korea at Changsha, China.
