Song Hye Kyo Makes New Donation To Continue Project To Educate On Korean History

Song Hye Kyo and Sungshin’s Women’s University professor Seo Kyoung Duk have continued their “Meet Our Country’s History Abroad” series.

On November 17, the professor took to his personal Instagram account to share new information about their latest donation. He stated, “Today (November 17) is Patriotic Martyrs Day, a day to remember the acts of patriotic martyrs who have dedicated and sacrificed their lives to recovering the sovereignty of our nation. To celebrate this day, Song Hye Kyo and I have sent 10,000 additional guidebooks in Korean and English to the Ahn Chang Ho family house in Los Angeles.”

He continued to write, “Since starting this project with Song Hye Kyo eight years ago, we have donated guidebooks to 18 historical sites related to the Korean independence movement around the world. I recently spoke with her, and we set a goal to donate guidebooks to all historical sites, no matter how long it takes. We believe it will take another 10 years. This ‘Planned by Seo Kyoung Duk, Funded by Song Hye Kyo’ collaboration will continue. Please continue to give us your support. Thank you.”

The Ahn Chang Ho family house is the space that Ahn Chang Ho’s family stayed at in 1914 and was a place of gathering for participants of the Korean independence movement who were living in the U.S. It is currently being used as the research center for Korean studies of the University of Southern California. This is the second time Professor Seo Kyoung Duk and Song Hye Kyo have donated guidebooks to the site, after sending 10,000 guidebooks in Korean and English in 2015.

The two have been working together for eight years to provide guidebooks to Korean historical sites around the world.
