IU will continue to promote the National Police Agency as an honorary police officer.
The multitalented singer and actress, who has participated in various activities to stop bulling in schools, was again named to take the role, along with actors Ma Dong-seok and Chun Jung-myung, at an event held at the agency in Seoul on Wednesday.
The agency said it chose Ma and Chun as they are familiar with the job of police officers. Ma has played the role of a detective in a TV drama and Chun has appeared in a cop-themed program.
They will take part in various activities to not only promote the agency but also raise awareness of the tasks and efforts of police officers as public servants.
Some 179 ordinary citizens have also been appointed as honorary officers in recognition of their contribution to society for the security of local communities.
