Actress says Africa was a shock

Actress Sin Eun-kyeong revealed that touring Africa was no bed of roses at a press conference on Thursday for SBS's new charity-based program "Hope TV".

"It was such a shock being there. It's about 100 times worse than what you see on TV. I feel bad for saying this, but I really hated being there as you feel like you really can't do much to alleviate their suffering", said Sin.

During her three-day visit, the actress said she felt as if three years had passed and she spent most of her time crying in despair.

"During those times, I thought a lot about myself, about my life, and it really made me want to seek God".

The 30-year-old said visiting Burundi made her realize just how grateful she should be for her life back home.

The TV personality also asked the public to continue its support for those living in poverty-stricken areas.

The new SBS show, which airs for the first time on May 4, will sponsor and report on developments in Africa and other third-world nations.
