Shin Min-a donates 1,000 movie tickets to underprivileged teens
The Cinema Angel Foundation announced on Tuesday that Shin raised the money for the tickets by doing a photo shoot for Harper’s Bazaar. The foundation, which is run by local entertainers, said Shin wanted to help kids from low-income households participate in the festival, which gets under way today. “She just wants them to encounter the world of cinema and gain new experiences,” said a spokesperson for the foundation, which was established in 2007 by director Lee Hyun-seung. Actors Park Hae-il, Ahn Sung-ki and Ryu Seung-bum are among its members.
Shin is currently starring in the drama “Arang and the Magistrate” with Lee Joon-gi. Last month, the broadcast rights to the Korean drama were sold to a Japanese network for a record-setting sum.
