Song Hye-gyo backs pro-culture app


Song Hye-gyo

Just in time for Hangul Day (Korean Language Day) yesterday, actress Song Hye-gyo teamed up with Prof. Seo Kyoung-duk from Sungshin Women’s University to launch a pro-Korean culture application for smart phones.

The application, called Dooroo Dooroo, is free and features seven historic landmarks in China. The sites are mostly buildings that were owned by the Korean government in exile during Japanese colonial rule.

The content of the application was provided by the Independence Hall of Korea, which promotes Korean culture.

Song’s agency said that as a Hallyu star, “Song wanted to impart the significance of Korea and its language worldwide.”

Meanwhile, Seo said the application will help Korean tourists track down places of national interest abroad.

In April, Song and Seo distributed pamphlets about the Korean independence movement in China. More than 30,000 brochures were placed at a former Korean government bureau in Shanghai.
