Korea's National Election Commission rolled out a public service announcement on April 25 ahead of the 19th presidential election. Entitled the 'May 9 Rose Project,' the PSA brought together some 50 celebrities to urge people to vote. These public campaigns can be found in other countries as well. Back in 2008, film director Steven Spielberg produced a PSA for voting with A-List Hollywood actors such as Will Smith, Tom Cruise, and Scarlett Johansson, which drew a lot of attention.
