Actress Kim Jung Eun was the subject of a famous photo exhibition titled “Letters From Angels.” The project is sponsored by the Social Welfare Society and directed by photographer Jo Sae Hyun.
The “Letters From Angels” project began in 2003, when Jo Sae Hyun received a request from a social worker to photograph orphan children for their 100th-day celebrations. The project especially gained recognition and fame with celebrities who gladly posed with children in order to promote adoption. As for Kim Jung Eun, she has been participating in this project for the past thirteen years since gaining the title of honorary ambassador.
Kim Jung Eun said, “I’ve been doing this for the past thirteen years, but still every time, I get very excited at the mere sight of these kids. I feel such happiness in shooting with them. I hope that they will grow up well and become strong. I also hope that a lot of people will come to the photo exhibition.”
As well as Kim Jung Eun, numerous celebrities have participated in this project including, 2NE1, CNBLUE, Lee Byung Hun, Lee Min Jung, Lee Seung Gi, G-Dragon, Taeyang, Tiffany and many others.
The photo exhibition will be open from December 18 to 23 at the Insa Art Center.
