Multi-faceted Korean celebrity Ku Hye-sun has lent her talent to a Korean film fest for disabled people.

The official trailer for the 14th Persons with Disabilities Film Festival (PDFF), directed by and starring Ku, was released through the festival’s official website and YouTube on Tuesday, Ku’s agency YG Entertainment said in a press release Wednesday.

In the trailer about 1-minute long, Ku is drowning in water and delivers the messages, “You are the most precious one” and “I love you” in sign language, a beautiful narration by herself and typography.

“As Ku also agreed to take on the PR ambassador job for the 14th PDFF, she is taking initiative in helping the disabled to get cultural resources including movies…… Her bright and positive image would be a big help for the festival,” an official with the PDFF was quoted as saying.

This is the “Boys Over Flowers” starlet’s third trailer producing job after directing two feature films “Magic” in 2010 and “The Peachtree” last year.

The actress is also busy with her other title as a painter these days, holding a private exhibition dubbed “Everything that leaves a yearning is beautiful” in Shanghai until the end of this month.

Sponsored by the Korean Film Council and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the 14th PDFF is opening its five days of festivity at Seoul’s Broadcasting Hall from September 23.
