Korean actress Moong Geun Young recently traveled to Africa where she volunteered to help those in need. The actress took to social media to share the picture along with the caption, "I'm back in one piece from my travels. When faced with such an innocent gaze and a pure soul, I became ashamed of the way I've lived so far. Any my heart ached knowing that nothing I can do will help these people."
Moon Geun Young continued, "I plan to search for way to improve their lives. That they'll become healthier. Even the smallest of interest from you can be a big help to them. Please help protect the bright smiles of these kids. I ask that you take even the tiniest interest."
