A handful of Korean celebrities -- including top actresses Kim So-yeon and Moon Geun-young -- have come together to shoot a charity photo spread for fashion magazine Vogue Korea, according to their agency on Monday.
Seven notable actors -- including Jeon Hye-bin, Jo Dong-hyeok, Kim Kang-woo, Lee Gyu-han and Lee Yoon-ji -- who are all managed by entertainment agency Namoo Actors, took part in a photo shoot for the February issue of Vogue to promote the "Love Tree Project".
"Love Tree Project" raises funds from a charity music album recorded by Namoo artists for underprivileged children who cannot afford medical treatment when they need it.
Besides having their famous faces photographed for a good cause, the stars also shared their personal thoughts about doing good deeds.
"Doing charity work receives publicity when a public figure does it," actress Kim So-yeon explained about the social responsibility of being a celebrity. "And when I heard that is the role of a celebrity, my perspective about sharing changed." The "IRIS" actress has reportedly participated in such charity projects with her agency for the past four years.
Actor Jo Dong-hyeok recommended, "It's better to give hands-on help rather than just send money. It feels more real."
