As the April 11 general elections approaches, celebrities are rolling up their sleeves to support their favorite candidates. Candidates with connections in showbusiness say they are receiving a huge boost in their campaigns.

Actress Lee Young-ae and her husband appeared at a political campaign rally for Chung Jin-suk, a former senior secretary for political affairs at Cheong Wa Dae. Lee and her husband are friends of Chung, who is running on the ruling Saenuri Party's ticket.

Actress Yoon Se-in, a daughter of Democratic United Party candidate Kim Boo-kyum who is running in Daegu, went to the southeastern city to help out as soon as filming ended for her TV drama last month.

Actor Song Il-gook, the son of former actress and Saenuri Party lawmaker Kim Eul-dong, is going all out to help his mother get re-elected.

DUP lawmaker Moon Hee-sang is getting a campaign boost from his niece and former Miss Korea Lee Honey. Lee also helped her uncle in his general election campaign in 2008.

Candidate Kim Han-gil is supported by his wife, the actress Choi Myung-gil. At a recent campaign rally, actresses Hwang Shin-hye, Shim Hye-jin and Son Chang-min were also lending him their support.
