Hallyu star Jang Na-ra will be appointed as an honorary citizen and honorary publicity ambassador of Jinan, Shandong Province coming Sunday. Jang has steadily done many charity works in China. Since 2005 this angelic singer has been involved in a program with local media and charity groups to help out young leukemia patients. The city of Jinan has decided to applaud Jang’s steady philanthropic work by granting her the honorary citizenship.
In response to the decision, Jang has said that she’s honored to be named an honorary citizen, especially as a foreigner working in China. Although honorary citizenship has been given to a number of businessmen and politicians who have done a lot of work for the city, she is the first Korean celebrity to receive such honor.
Jang is scheduled to visit Shandong, Sichuan and Ningsha Provinces from Saturday through Monday. She plans to distribute winter coats to the victims of Sichuan earthquake and make an appearance on the spring festival program of a Nishang satellite TV channel.
