The National Hangeul Museum launched a whiteboard animation on May 2, entitled 'People Who Created, Preserved and Bloomed Hangul'. It is to commemorate the birthday of King Sejong the Great who established Hangeul on May 15th.
Video unfolds the history of Hangul while showing that the background of May 15, designated as the Teacher's day, is not well known to people that it is the birthday of King Sejong the Great, the teacher of the people.
Especially, this video has been a hot issue with actor Yoo Hae-jin’s narration. Yoo Hae-jin has recently shown impressive performances through the movie " MAL·MO·E", which tells stories of people who preserved Korean language during the Japanese occupation.
Seven Hundred was in charge of planning and production of this video. CEO Lee Kyusang is currently participating as a public relations adviser for the National Hangeul Museum. He has decided to directly produce the video based on the concept of 100 years of preserving Hangul to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the independence movement and establishment of interim government.
He suggested to the agency of the actor Yoo Hae-jin for the narration of this video, and the actor readily accepted it which added a big meaning to this video. Today, on King Sejong the Great’s birthday, Yoo Hae-jin will be commissioned as the first honorary ambassador of the National Hangeul Museum.
This video consists of three parts: 'Birth of Hangul', 'People Who Preserve and Bloom Hangeul', and 'Introduction to the National Museum'.
Seven Hundred’s CEO, Lee Kyusang, expressed his impression, "It was a great honor to participate in video production involved in our proud Hangeul” and “I had the opportunity to listen to the explanation of the National Hangeul Museum with my staff, and now I like to recommend you listen. I’m very proud as a Korean.”
