Actress Song Hye Kyo has donated 800 tickets to the 16th International Women’s Film Festival in Seoul to those who are unable to afford cultural activities.
On June 2, a representative from the International Women’s Film Festival in Seoul announced that Song Hye Kyo has donated 800 tickets through the charitable organization Cinema Angel.
Cinema Angel, founded under the motto of “one movie can change a life,” is a cultural donation organization consisting of actors. Since the establishment after the suggestion of director Lee Hyun Seung in 2007, many actors have donated through the organization. Previous donors include Song Kang Ho, Hwang Jung Min, Kang Hye Jung, Gong Hyo Jin, Bae Doona, Lee Na Young, and Shin Ha Kyun, among numerous others.
Song Hye Kyo previously donated festival tickets to the Busan International Film Festival last year. The tickets donated for the 16th International Women’s Film Festival in Seoul will be given through The Korean Council for the Women Drafted for Military Sexual Slavery by Japan, and the Magdalena Organization which works with individuals suffering due to human trafficking.
The 16th International Women’s Film Festival in Seoul opened on May 29 and will run until June 5. The website for the Festival can be found here.
