Actress Lee Young Ae recently attended a Cartier jewelry event in Hong Kong to promote the Korean traditional clothing hanbok. According to various press releases, the actress wore a yellow ribbon to her hanbok dress to show support for the victims of the Sewol ferry accident.
In showing sympathy to those involved in the tragedy, the actress had canceled all of her scheduled activities except for this one as it was an opportunity to show the world the greatness of the hanbok. Additionally, this event was planned a long time ago, making it more difficult for Lee Young Ae to reject the invitation.
The actress reportedly wore the yellow ribbon all throughout the event and the interviews that ensued after the event.
