“Let’s get it up for Moon Dong Eun! Bravo!”

Actress Song Hye Kyo is currently the subject of a rumor that her donation helped a Korean history museum in the Netherlands—based on her history, it is not surprising.

Recently, in a post titled “A Netherlands Building Bought With Song Hye Kyo’s Money,” a netizen posted on an online community about how the actress allegedly donated to a building in the Netherlands owned by a Korean couple. The couple had acquired and operated the building as the Yi Jun Peace Museum, but they couldn’t afford to buy the first floor.

Thanks to Song Hye Kyo’s donation, however, the couple was able to purchase the first floor, and now the entire building is a memorial hall. The poster also wrote that they searched for articles about this, but none mentioned Song Hye Kyo’s kind act—they only talked about other sponsors.

The post also included a screenshot of a comment of someone testifying they went to the museum two years ago, and the owners told them about Song Hye Kyo.

I went two years ago and they didn’t have a first floor then. I remember the person in charge brought me to the first floor smiling and telling me that they bought the first floor and was going to expand all because of Song Hye Kyo’s hefty donation.

The original poster also clarified at the bottom of her post that she is not a Song Hye Kyo and that it is not a sales post.

However, this rumor is not a surprise, as Song Hye Kyo was recently the narrator for the special Korean Independence Movement Day documentary Grandma Is Back. The documentary tells the story of a 96-year-old comfort woman survivor named Lee Yong Soo. Song Hye Kyo supported the comfort women grandmothers through her narration.


In addition, the actress partners with Professor Seo Kyung Deok of Sungshin Women’s University every year to promote history by donating Korean language guidebooks, Korean signboards, and historical replicas to many independence movement historic sites overseas. She has done this every year for 12 years and has donated to 30 places, exerting her positive influence and love for her culture’s history.
