Song Hye Kyo and PR specialist Seo Kyoung-Duk, who have donated various Korean guidebooks to Korean historical sites located in overseas areas, again donated guidebooks to the provisional government of Korea in Hangzhou, China.
On April 11, Seo Kyoung-Duk, who is a professor at Sungshin Women’s University, announced that he and actress Song Hye Kyo provided guidebooks written in Korean for free to the provisional government of Korea in Hangzhou.
According to the professor Seo, who is also actively working as a PR specialist of Korea, this project was planned to celebrate the anniversary of the provisional government built on the 13th of April back in history. As a result, a total of 10,000 copies will be provided to visitors for free starting from the April 11.
In the guidebook, there are detailed information about people who spent their days for the independence of Korea, the provisional government built in Hangzhou and Kim Koo, who is a renowned fighter for independence.
Regarding this project, actress Song Hye Kyo said, “Even if those historical sites are located outside the country, I believe that we still need some guidebook in Korean. As we pay more attention to our own historical sites, we will protect them in a better way.”
Meanwhile, Song Hye Kyo, so far, donated Korean guidebook services to MoMA and Boston Museum and is planning to provide the same service to Van Gogh Museum in the Netherlands. (photo by Seo Kyoung-Duk)
