A few months ago, Song Hye Kyo joined professor Seo Kyung Duk to donate 10,000 Korean/English books to the historic Korean National Association in Los Angeles. Now, it has been reported that the Descendants of the Sun actress has donated another 10,000 books. According to The Korea Times, Song Hye Kyo and professor Seo Kyung Duk donated another round of books and this time, the donations were made at the Korean Cultural Center in Paris. The outlet revealed that the donation was made to celebrate Hangeul day. 

The Korean-French guidebooks provide information about Seo Young Hae (1902-56), a Korean independence fighter who was active in Paris and details about the historic sites in connection with the country's independence battle against Japan. Talking about the donation, professor Seo Kyung Duk said, "I heard that many French people visit the center thanks to effect of hallyu. I hope the books can give a little help in promoting that part of the Korean history."

"Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the condition of our historic sites abroad is not very good. So I think we have to pay more attention to them," he added. Song Hye Kyo isn't a stranger to these donations. Over the past nine years, the actress has been involved in the philanthropic work of contributed guidebooks for Korea-related sites and other Korea-related items. Apart from these, Song Hye Kyo has also been in the news for her other charities. Stay tuned to Pinkvilla for more updates.
