Song Hye-kyo donates Korean guide books to Japan

2017/08/15 | 576 views | Permalink | Source

Song Hye-kyo and professor Seo Kyeong-deok are promoting Korean historical sites in commemoration of Liberation Day. 10,000 guide books called, "Our History in Foreign Countries" were donated to Kyoto, Japan.

This guidebook was printed in Korean and Japanese and it introduces numerous Korean historical sites.

Professor Seo said, "We have been donating guidebooks to various Korean sites in China but none in Japan because they wouldn't allow it. Instead, we donated the guide books to locations where young Korean tourists resided while traveling in Kyoto, Japan".

"Going around Japanese tourism sites is a good idea, but taking half a day to look at Korean historical sites in Japan would mean a lot".

"We hope many people see the books and take up more interest in our Korean history".

"The preservation of Korean historical websites abroad are not in such good condition. However, visiting more of our historical sites will help to protect them on foreign land".

Song and Seo have been donating guidebooks to 12 locations as well as the New York Modern Museum of Arts and The Museum of Toronto.
