Artists welcome Pope Francis to Korea
It was reported that well-known Catholic entertainers like Ahn Sung-ki, Kim Hee-ae, Kim Tae-hee and ballerina Kim Joo-won came together in appreciation of the first papal visit to the country in 25 years. In October 1989, Pope John Paul II attended the 44th International Eucharistic Congress with the late Cardinal Sue-Hwan Stephen Kim.
Singer-songwriter Roh Young-shim wrote and composed the music.
Korea is the first Asian destination for Pope Francis since his inauguration in March last year.
