A total of four Korean entertainment stars were appointed honorary ambassadors for the second Nuclear Security Summit slated to be held in Seoul next March.

US-born songstress Park Jung-hyun, actor at the center of the "Korean Wave" Jang Keun-suk, and two beloved child actors were named on Thursday to lead promotional activities emphasizing the importance of nuclear security and world peace.
Foreign Minister Kim Sung-hwan asked the ambassadors to fully utilize their global image and popularity at home to help people in Korea and beyond better understand the summit and its objectives.

And Park is slated to record a promotional song for the summit, dubbed the "Peace Song", in both Korean and English.

Meanwhile, 60 so-called e-reporters, pre-selected to report on the summit, officially began their roles.

The two-day Seoul Nuclear Security Summit, starting on March 26th of next year, will host over 50 heads of state and international organizations for discussions on the safe use of nuclear energy and preventing terrorists from access to nuclear materials.
