On April 29, the couple attended press conference for the 3rd Animal Film Festival in Suncheon as honorary ambassadors. During the event, they received a letter of appointment from Mayor Jo Choong Hoon.
“I’m honored to be elected as part of the animal friends for the animal film festival. This especially a new experience for me because this is the only national event in which people and animals can coexist together. While thinking about what I could do as an animal friend, I realized that numerous animals needed help from worldwide. I feel like our first step to loving animals is to feel compassion towards them,” Yoon Hyun Min said. “I’ll make sure that I constantly put effort into my role as an animal friend and make sure that the film festival ends with success.”
Jeon So Min added, “I’ll make sure to advocate the fact that the environment and animals have to be loved.”
While many would try to hide their relationship as much as possible after going public, the two explained why they ventured out and decided to work as a team.
“After our relationship was revealed to the world, a close friend told us to participate as honorary ambassadors together. I had no doubts against doing such a meaningful job together. On the contrary, I thought we’d be better together,” Yoon Hyun Min said.
Meanwhile, the 3rd Animal Film Festival in Suncheon will be held from May 22 to 28.
