Well known as a passionate animal lover and often volunteering at various animal shelters, Lee Hyori responded to Democratic Party representative Pyo Chang Won's Instagram post regarding animal protection laws on March 8.
Pyo Chang Won's post read, "After a long, heated debate consolidating submissions made by others, in terms of animal abuse and degrees of punishment, we are looking into changing the way license permits are issued within the animal production industry."
Reading this, singer Lee Hyori commented, "Mr. Pyo Chang Won, I am aware that animal protection laws are still a strenuous and sensitive topic in this country but please do your best. I will be rooting for you."
The politician responded to the singer saying, "Thank you. I am also cheering for you always. Please stay strong."
We hope for better animal protection laws in Korea, soon!
