Actress Song Hye Kyo and a guest professor, Seo Kyung Deok from Sungshin Women's University, provided a Korean language guidebook to Yoon Bong Gil Memorial Hall in Shanghai, China.

Professor Seo said on April 27, "We provided 10,000 copies of the new guidebook with a brand-new design to Yoon Bong Gil Memorial Hall located in Hongkou Park in Shanghai to celebrate the 80th anniversary of Yoon Bong Gil's patriotic deed on April 29."

The guidebook includes various information and pictures about independence movements such as a chronological table of independence movements, Yoon Bong Gil Memorial Hall, the Provisional Government in Shanghai, the accommodation of provisional government officials in Gaheung, and a refuge of Baekbum Kim Gu.

Song Hye Kyo has already supported the production of the Korean guidebook at the Modern Art Museum in New York in January and the Shanghai Privisional Givernment on April 14.

A person representing Song Hye Kyo said, "Song Hye Kyo realized the importance of Korean language services while she was holding various activities overseas centering on Asian countries such as China and Taiwan, which led her to support the production of the Korean guidebook." Professor Seo Kyung Deok also revealed that he will continue to provide Korean language services to the world's famous art galleries, museums, and Korean historical sites all around the world.
