Lee Jung-jae gives back with museum work


Actor Lee Jung-jae has announced his decision to donate all the profits he earned from participating in narrating the audio guide for “Lee Jung-seob 1916-1956,” an exhibition intended to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of one of Korea’s most celebrated painters.

Lee, who has been representing the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA) as an honorary ambassador since 2012, has been known to be highly interested in the famous painter’s art.

“I am grateful to be able to deliver the background information and the messages that the artist intended to deliver to the audience through his work,” the celebrity said.

The exhibition, which will run from today until Oct. 3, is being hosted by the MMCA, the Chosun Ilbo and the Lee Jung-seob Art Museum.
