SM Entertainment's artists U-Know Yunho and SHINee will take part in a charity campaign for war orphans next week.
SM announced through a press release that at the Asia Publication Culture & Information Center at PajuBookCity in the Gyeonggi Province of Korea on August 31, the idol singers will participate in the campaign aimed at sharing the importance of peace and life by raising funds for famine and war orphans around the world.
Gyeonggi Province Governor Kim Moon-soo, Paju City mayor Lee In-jae, the film's festival director Cho Jae-hyun and UNICEF Korea's Secretary General Park Dong-eun will take part in the cause as well.
The event is being held in time with this year's DMZ Korean International Documentary Film Festival held from September 9 to 13 and the 2010 Peace Marathon Gyeonggi 4th Festival on September 12, both of which will be at PajuBookCity and the areas of the Imjingak Pyeonghoa-Nuri.
Singer and actor U-Know Yunho, who debuted through boy band TVXQ, is currently rehearsing for musical production "Goong," set to premiere on September 8, where he will rotate the role of main lead character Lee Shin.
Five-man band SHINee topped numerous music charts earlier this month with their latest studio release "LUCIFER."
