Professor Seo Kyung Duk, “The information that Song Hye Kyo sponsored Yi Jun Peace Museum is not true”

The revelation that actress Song Hye Kyo donated to Yi Jun Peace Museum turned out to be wrong information.

On April 28th, Professor Seo Kyung Duk made a post on his SNS account, saying “An article titled ‘The building that Song Hye Kyo sponsored’ was shared on an online community and similar articles are being published”.

He added, “This is wrong information, so I leave this message to correct it”.

The Professor explained, “The person who wrote the article posted the photos of Yi Jun Peace Museum in The Hague, the Netherlands, and a screenshot of a comment written by a netizen in 2019.”

He added, “They also said, ‘I went there two years ago, but there was no first floor. However, Song Hye Kyo donated money so they acquired the first floor and expanded the building. I remember the manager happily taking me to the first floor to show me around’, adding ‘A Korean couple bought the building and operated it as a memorial hall, but they couldn’t acquire the first floor due to lack of money. Thanks to Song Hye Kyo’s donation, the entire building is now the museum’.”

He emphasized, “I know they posted the article with good intentions, but I think there was a misunderstanding”.

He then stated,Starting with donating large-scale decorative artwork and sculptures to Yi Jun Peace Museum, Hye Kyo and I also donated Korean signs and information boards. However, we did not separately donate funds to expand the first floor of the museum. So, I hope there is no misunderstanding.” 

Lastly, the Professor said, “Anyway, Hye Kyo and I have donated Korean guidebooks, Korean signs, and artworks to 33 Korean historical sites overseas on historic anniversaries for the past 12 years.”

Meanwhile, Song Hye Kyo recently gained huge popularity with her performance in Netflix’s original series “The Glory”.
