Ku Hye Sun is displaying her art work from July 1 to 7 at La Mer Gallery in Insadong. The exhibition is called Tango, which is also the title of her recently published book. She is generously donating the revenue from the exhibition to YG Entertainment’s charity campaign, WITH.
Following the April 1 release of her novel, Tango (탱고), Ku Hye Sun is holding an online illustration exhibition of key excerpts. In cooperation with online auction hosting company Gmarket, Ku has chosen approximately 20 illustrations (half of what’s in the book) with short written passages to display on the internet.
