Korean celebrities are being drawn to a photographic exhibition by 53-year-old Cho Sei-hon as part of a campaign to encourage adoption.The 20 photos feature stars such as Choi Ji-woo, Lee Min-ho, Kim Hye-soo and Lee Seo-jin holding up babies who have been abandoned by their parents but who are blissfully unaware of this as they mesmerize the viewer with their innocent smiles.
The photographer, who will display his works at Seoul's Insa Art Center from Dec. 14 to 19, has been working on the project since 2003. The idea was sparked when a social worker approached him about taking a picture of a 100-day-old baby who was up for adoption, and Cho saw this as an opportunity to raise awareness of the issue.
"I've been holding these exhibitions every year, but I'm always hoping that I don't have to do this because there will be no more babies up for adoption", Cho said.
"I hope more children find good families through the exhibition, so they can grow up being well-loved and cared for", he added.
For more information about the exhibition, call 02-567-8814.
