Actress Song Hye Kyo has been picked as a narrator for a documentary film featuring pandas facing the threat of extinction due to an earthquake that hit Sichuan Province in China last year.

Song, 28, was appointed as Asia’s first panda goodwill ambassador by the Chinese government in June.

Song will shed light on the pandas’ hidden world and the threat of their extinction during the documentary, “Good Morning Panda”, co-produced by South Korea and China. It will be broadcast through EBS TV’s Docu Prime Wednesday.

The panda, a mammal native to China, is loved all over the world owing to its cute appearance.

Song, who visited a panda habitat in Sichuan Province after becoming a goodwill envoy, has been working to publicize the need to preserve pandas across Asia while calling for international support for the project.
