DBSK as the Anti-smoking spokesman!!!

서울신문 나우뉴스]

그룹 동방신기가 금연 캠페인의 주제곡인 금연송 뮤직 비디오의 주인공으로 낙점됐다.

동방신기는 보건복지가족부가 진행하고 있는 2008 금연 공익캠페인 ‘세이 노, 세이브 라이프’(Say No, Save Life) 뮤직비디오의 마지막 주자로 나서게 됐다.

보건복지가족부는 지금까지 ‘세이노(Say-No) 금연송’ 뮤직비디오 시리즈에 국내 신세대 가수의 참여를 이끌어내며 금연에 대한 젊은 층의 자각을 일깨우는데 주력해 왔다.

금연송 뮤직비디오에는 그룹 슈퍼주니어를 첫 주자로 원더걸스, V.O.S, 에픽하이, 다비치, 서인영, 샤이니, 남규리, 빅뱅, 쿨, 신혜성, F.T 아일랜드, 카라, 2PM, 브라운아이드걸스 등이 출연해 왔으며 실제로 금연에 대한 관심도를 높이는데 성공을 거뒀다.

보건복지가족부는 “연예인을 통한 금연 캠페인은 청소년에게 간접흡연의 위험성을 알리고 메시지를 효과적으로 전달할 수 있다.”며 “이들은 청소년 층의 큰 공감대를 형성하는 데 기여한 바가 크다.”고 설명했다.

동방신기의 금연 뮤직비디오는 오는 26일 공중파TV 가요프로그램에서 방영될 예정이며 보건복지가족부가 운영하는 온라인 사이트인 ‘세이노(Say No)’ 금연캠페인 홈페이지(www.say-no.co.kr)에서도 감상할 수 있다.
