Actors Ji Jin-hee and Han Hyo-joo, both starring in the MBC drama "Dong Yi," have been named promotional ambassadors for Korea's population census.
Statistics Korea said Monday the two stars were selected because the civil register was established in the reign of King Sukjong, whom Ji plays in the period drama. Han plays the royal concubine Sukbin Choe, the birth mother of later King Yeongjo.
The census is conducted every five years. This year's survey will be carried out on Nov. 1 to 15, covering Koreans and resident foreigners.
