Song Hye Gyo will be participating in the publishing of a guidebook to the Korean Independence Hall for the visually impaired. The generous actress will be sponsoring the entire production cost of the guidebook’s publication.
Song Hye Gyo, who is currently playing a visually impaired character in the SBS drama, “That Winter, The Wind Blows,” commented, “Through the drama, I was able to understand how difficult things can be for the visually impaired. That is why I decided to sponsor the publication of the braille book.”
Compared to many other countries, braille guidebooks to galleries are not readily available in South Korea. Hopefully with high profile people like Song Hye Gyo bringing attention to such issues, the situation will get better.
