Photographer Cho Sei Hyun continues his annual “Letters to Angels” campaign. Now on to its ninth year, the yearly charity enlists celebrities to pose with orphans, who the photographer calls “angels,” for an exhibit that promotes domestic adoption.
“The first angel is already nine years old,” Cho Sei Hyun said on his Twitter account (@4portrait). “This year, these days, a lot of stars and angels have played in front of my camera.”
Although the exhibit is yet to open, Cho Sei Hyun already shared some behind-the-scenes shots and short anecdotes as captions through Twitter. He also revealed some of the stars who participated in this year’s campaign, with the theme “eyes,” including 2NE1, 2PM’s Nichkhun, BEAST’s Doojun, Yoseob and Dongwoon, CN Blue, Choi Ji Woo, Park Shi Hoo, Kim Hye Soo, Lee Min Ho, Lee Seo Jin and SNSD’s Tiffany.
