"Even now I still get cyber bullied on the internet about being short. I wish I were taller. However, I am not a model. I am envious of a perfect body line, but even if I had that, I would not be Song Hye Kyo."
This is from KARA (Korea Animal Rights Advocates) official Facebook, which is in English. Along with the following message below, they uploaded more than 30 photos from this day. Some do not include Hye Kyo, but I decided to upload them all anyways.
A few months ago, the Yeoju City council contacted KARA asking for help. This woman was found to be in an unstable health condition and she was living with 23 dogs. The council was willing to help the woman but did not know what to do with the dogs.
When we first visited her house, it was a mess. There were piles of rubbish everywhere.
This time, our trip was to help clean the house with the Council officials and to shave and do simple health check-ups for the dogs.
And guess what, this time, the famous actress Song Hyekyo joined us!
Also, the Korean official KARA website included their own photos and notes from that day. I uploaded all of those photos in the Photo Gallery as well. Below are some of the photos, which I also translated the captions that went along with them. Just click to enlarge or download/save them in the Photo Gallery.
In the shining Smurf outfit is Song Hye Kyo, who just completed filming her drama.
She heard the news about the woman’s house and participated by volunteering for us.
Her face is beautiful, and even her heart is beautiful, right? Such an unselfish person, Hye Kyo-nim ㅜ.ㅜ
For the dogs living in harsh environments, she worked harder than anyone in cleaning.
^ ^ You see all of the good person, right?! Hehe
One side of the small room was entangled with feces, garbage, and other stuff.
As soon as we opened the doors, it wasn’t easy to open our eyes due to the dust.
Our Kara volunteer crew did not give up and began cleaning.
It got neat and tidy, didn’t it ^0^
Such a small room had this much stuff in it.
We cleaned out the dust and the room became organized again.
The very day of volunteering, this was the photo of Hye Kyo-nim published on Kara’s official Twitter.
Didn’t you see this a lot from the news articles? ^^
Cleaning up garbage, giving out snacks, helping with grooming, carrying garbage, etc.
She worked so hard without a break.
April Kara Volunteer Work, the Hye Kyo wind gently blew.
Hye Kyo-nim, who did her best until the very end.
She even made sure to re-check the trash that was already collected in the garbage bags and pressed down firmly to make sure no space of the bags were wasted
The Kara service work made the space this beautiful.
This is the well-organized look. There was so much trash that they couldn’t even run and play.
Thanks to the service work, they are now able to use the space freely!
It was too crowded to take a photo in the house of more than 20 volunteers in the group but suddenly it became wide enough~
Everyone worked so hard putting away the large amount of waste~
This mission is complete for Kara’s month of April volunteer work!

We have seen photos from Kyo’s W Magazine cover spread from a few years ago. But, I stumbled across Photographer Jang Hyun Hong’s official agency site, and noticed they also included a few photos that did not make it in the magazine.
Trees in Focus Photography Exhibition: Zoom in on the Women
At the end of this month, the Anne Fontaine Foundation looks forward to unveiling the first stop on its itinerant photography exhibition Trees in Focus. With this exhibition comes evidence that the organization is an extremely intersectional one. Founded by a strong and caring woman with a love for the arts and the environment, this exhibition not only melds classical aesthetics with natural beauty, but also strongly showcases women– infront and behind the lens.
In a number of the pieces in the exhibition, women are portrayed alongside and interacting with nature. This connection of women with nature has been an aesthetic and cultural association for a great deal of time, especially the natural beauty and strength that both possess. For example, take self-taught Korean photographer KT Kim’s contributed piece to Trees in Focus. It portrays Song Hye Kyo, one of Asia’s most famous actresses, perched in a majestic and grand tree. As KT Kim describes, “Song Hye Kyo has a strong connection with nature, and I felt that a bond was formed between the trees and the actress, creating the ‘Actrees’ . . . “
