Actress Song Hyekyo donated a large signboard to the village of Utoro, Japan, along with Sungshin Women's University professor Seo Kyungdeok to mark the 75th anniversary of Korea's liberation from Japanese colonial rule.


Professor Seo said on his Instagram account on the 15th, "I donated a large signboard to the village of Utoro in Japan with actor Song Hyekyo to mark the 75th anniversary of Korea's liberation from Japanese colonial rule."


Professor Seo Kyungdeok's research team explained, "The wooden information board is 2m wide and 1.5m long, and it is also made in Korean, Japanese and English," adding, "The characteristics of the information board have been constantly communicating with residents of Utoro Village since a few months ago, and it is made with the phrases and designs they want."


Professor Seo was in charge of planning and promoting the donation, and Song Hyekyo was in charge of sponsoring the donation. The two also donated 20,000 copies of the guidebook, both in Korean and Japanese, to Utoro.


Professor Seo said, "It was difficult for visitors to get off the subway station and visit the Utoro Village Hall Eruhwa, so we installed a notice board at the entrance of the village," adding, "The situation of Korean historical sites remaining overseas due to the Corona 19 incident this year is not very good either. The more this happens, the more we have to pay attention to it.
