We have some tricky things to do so the models are not stuck,‘ Bonnat said in an interview with Reuters. The yearly trade fair for the international chocolate industry, supported by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, started in 1994.Meanwhile, the teenge actress recently starred in MBC’s drama "May Queen" and has appeared in dramas such as "The Moon that Embraced the Sun" and "Gyebaek."
