Jo Min-ki to hold charity photo exhibition in Japan

Korean actor Jo Min-ki will be making his official debut as a photographer by holding a special exhibition in Japan next month, according to his agency Mentor Entertainment.

The photo exhibition -- titled "Live A...Frica" -- will be held at Tokyo's Keumsan Gallery from May 7 thru May 29 and feature photographs taken by the actor, who has been visiting Africa for various charity projects since 2006.

"I hope people will share their hearts with children who are in need in Africa through this exhibition", the actor was quoted as saying. "I hope my heart and respect toward Africa is conveyed to the world through my work".

The veteran actor and his fans had started a charity fund movement called "Together Well" on his website, raising money for well excavations in areas suffering from water shortage in Africa.

In 2008, he helped dig a well in Kumi, Uganda and made headlines last year when he took actor Park Hae-jin, his co-star in TV series "East of Eden", on another well-digging project in Cote d'Ivoire in western Africa. He and Park are planning another trip to the continent after Jo wraps up his exhibition in Japan.

Jo, 44, has appeared in more than a dozen television dramas including the recent hit "Queen Seon-deok" (MBC, 2009), "Iljimae" (SBS, 2008) and "Immortal Admiral Yi Sun-shin" (KBS1, 2004).

His photo work is currently showing in Korea at Kookmin Bank's Yoido PB Center.
