Her post was in Korean and English.
Veteran actress Kim Hye Soo has publically shared her stance on the latest situation regarding the crisis in Gaza.
Although the conflict between Israel and Palestine dates back decades, it has garnered international attention over the past few months since Hamas’ October 7 attack on Israel. Since then, there have been continuous retaliatory airstrikes by Israeli forces across the Gaza Strip. With civilians being killed, citizens have voiced their opinions, with many asking for a ceasefire.
