Yeo Jin-gu and Baek Jin-hee tapped as honorary ambassadors for film festival

Actor Yeo Jin-gu of MBC drama “Moon Embracing the Sun” and actress Baek Jin-hee of MBC drama “Empress Ki” have been chosen as honorary ambassadors to promote a movie festival.

The two will be the face of Seoul International Youth Film Festival, which will celebrate its 16th year and will run for eight days starting Aug. 21. Screenings will be happening all across Seoul, including Seongbuk Art Hall in northern Seoul.

The opening event will be held on Floating Island near Banpo Bridge.

“I’m honored to promote this special film festival that puts the focus on children and teenagers,” said Yeo. “As once a youngster myself who dreamt of becoming a talented actor, I’ll do my best to promote the event.”
