The story of the actor Jung Woosung as he meets refugees. As a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, Jung has visited a refugee settlement at least once a year since 2014 to learn of their plight firsthand and publicize it in Korea. These are a collection of his experiences and thoughts, and the stories of the refugees he has met along the way. He professes that he was moved to write a book about his experiences because "If anyone goes into a refugee settlement and listens to their stories, they will have no doubt as to the need to help these people and the important role the UNHCR plays around the world."
The Actor Jung Woosung debuted in the movie Nine-Tailed Fox in 1994 and has remained in the spotlight as a beloved star of movies and television. He has worked as a UNHCR representative since 2014 in the hopes of returning the love that he has received as a star. Named Goodwill Ambassador in July of 2015, he has traveled overseas to a refugee camp every year in a sustained and dedicated effort to bring light to the plight of refugees around the world. He has written this book in the hopes that the story of the refugees he has met will have a wider reach.
