Back in 2007, Prof. Seo worked on publishing a Korean booklet and Korean-language service for the world renowned museum.

“We felt the necessity to upgrade the Korean guidebook, and Song Hye Gyo conveyed her intention to sponsor the publication,” Seo said.

Seo went on to say, “Song Hye Gyo, who has been actively working in Asian countries including China and Taiwan, was aware of the importance of Korean-language services. Such an interest led her to fund the publication without any strings attached.”

The Korean guidebook, which contains information on the overall facilities and artwork at the MoMA, is provided to visitors free of charge at the museum. The guidebook can be also downloaded at the museum’s website at www.moma.org.
