Actress Song Hye Kyo has rejected Japanese car brand 'Mitsubishi's model offer.
According to the public relation company in charge of Song Hye Kyo, the actress turned down Mitsubishi's offer for a different CF that was scheduled to be aired in China. The reason is the fact that Mitsubishi is currently involved in lawsuits over the alleged use of forced labor during Japan's colonial era.
Following the news, Seo Kyung Deok of Sungshin Womens University, who is also known to be an expert in promoting South Korea, made a comment about Song Hye Kyo on SNS as he wrote, "Song Hye Kyo has long been a partner of mine. She has great interest in Korean history and culture." He also revealed that Song Hye Kyo has talked to him about Mitsubishi's offer as she said, "Mitsubishi hasn't taken responsibility for their past actions yet, right? That means I am not going to be modeling for them."
Song Hye Kyo is well known for her strong patriotism. In fact, she sponsored the production of Korean language brochures in various locations in New York.
How could anyone not admire Song Hye Kyo's strong support for Korea?
