I saw these news about Jang Hyuk’s participation on a UNICEF campaign and thought it would be a good idea to share it here. I’ve seen the news in korean publications but as you know, my korean is still non existent! :p hey! I can barely handle the english (my spanish is pretty good, if you ever need me to translate something, I’ll gladly help) but just by looking at this video and photos of Jang Hyuk drawing faces on some dolls I knew it had to be something cool 😉
Isn’t he sweet? I insist! Who can believe this sweety pie is Daegil in Chuno eh? Impossible. So my first thought at seeing this was, “Awww cute” and my second thought was “I want those dolls” but oh well, the dolls are actually for the children that this project is trying to help 🙂 So cut the silliness Drama Fan and focus on the actual campaign, which is awesome btw. I hope it is a success!
So here is the beef about this project according to Yahoo News Phillipines

During July, actor Jang Hyuk is participating in a project that UNICEF Korea and portal website Daum Communication are holding together. This project is called ‘Hope with stars’ and it delivers hopeful messages to little children in Africa who are losing their lives due to illness. Jang Hyuk suggested many campaign ideas to help these children and one of them was making a awoo doll.
Jang Hyuk made some dolls dressed up in Korean martial art Taekwondo outfit and delivered them to lovely children in Africa. In addition, Jang Hyuk made a video of campaign advertising to ask help from people on the Internet.
Meanwhile, there is a campaign page on portal website Daum and the company will donate to UNICEF every time someone leaves a comment on the page. (photo by UNICEF)
Hyukie is asking for our help! I feel I must do my part!
This is the UNICEF Korea website, where you can find more information (in korean)
This (looks like) the korean website where people are supposed to comment, for the site to donate to UNICEF (according to the article, one doesn’t even have to donate, just comment? That would be so easy if I could read korean aaaissshh).
I have not been able to personally do this! because of the language barrier ugh! But I vow to figure it out, before the end of July. If I manage to log in and participate I’ll let you know.
