In an effort to help children from low-income family, actress Song Hye Kyo became the seventh member of a small charity project called “Cinema Angels,” which consists of Korean actors and actress in the film industry, and handed out 1,000 free tickets to the Busan International Film Festival.
According to an article in Soompi, she bought these tickets with money from her BAZAAR magazine shoot, supported by Burberry Korea.
Despite her busy schedule, Song Hye Kyo shared her missions to make a donation via money from her shoot.
She commented, “I hope these tickets will allow needy children in Busan have good memories from the Busan International Film Festival. I also hope these children would attend the festival to find a brand-new world and get new vision of movies.”
One official from the Busan International Film Festival said, “It looks like actors and actresses have been thinking the way to let many people go see movies to develop film industry in Korea, although there are still so many people who can’t afford to it. Also as actors and actresses, they have a beautiful mind to try to give back the received love from fans, which is really awesome.
"We will definitely let people know their spirit at this film festival.”
