  • [2012-05-07]
  • Seo Hyun of Girls Generation was appointed as an honorary ambassador of the UN exhibition hall (co-hosted by Goo Sam Yeol and Amina Mohamed) at the Yeosu EXPO, which will open on May 12. According to the UN on May 3, the youngest group member Seo Hyun accepted the suggestion to become an honorary ambassador as she agreed the important role of honorary ambassador who will promote the importance of the ocean environment to the world.




    When the UN secretary general Ban Ki Moon attended the Nuclear Security Summit at the end of March, Seo Hyun was requested to become an ambassador. Seo Hyun listened to the important concept of the UN Pavilion at the Yeosu EXPO and her roles as an ambassador and said, "I will try to complete my duties to inform the importance of the sea environment as to many people as possible."

    Seo Hyun also revealed that she felt more honored as she was commissioned by the secretary general in person, whom she highly respects. And Ban Ki Moon also said that he hopes that more students and young people can raise their consciousness about the importance of preserving the oceans and coasts and pursuing sustainable development thanks to Seo Hyun's role as an honorary ambassador.

    The UN Exhibition Hall has the theme entitled "The ocean and coastal area where sustain our lives and ensure our futures: The choice lies upon you," and 24 UN nations will present the importance of the ocean and coastal areas by the facilitation of Mr. Ban. The UN Pavilion will also hold various events such as an exhibition, film screening, mock UN conference, celebration of the UN Day, and musical gala show.[Yonhap]
