Go Ara, the leading actress in the sensational nostalgic drama "Reply 1994," will represent South Korea's Air Force as its latest honorary ambassador, the Air Force said Monday.
The 26-year-old actress will serve as the face of the Air Force over the next year, appearing on promotional Air Force publications and attending key public events.
Go is the daughter of a career service member, who served for nearly 30 years with the Air Force, and her appointment reflected this background, the Air Force said.
"Go's career path and image matches those of the Air Force's four key values -- challenge, devotion, professionalism and team work," the Air Force said in a statement. "The appointment will greatly contribute to the Air Force's efforts to become closer with the public."
"I am pleased to have this precious relationship with the Air Force which I have admired so much," Go said, adding that she is very much looking forward to her activities as the honorary ambassador.
Go debuted in the local television drama "Sharp #1" in 2003, and gained wild popularity through her leading role as Sung Na-jung in "Reply 1994" which aired in 2013. (Yonhap)
