Popular actors Ahn Sung-ki, Lee Young-ae and Lee Byung-hun will send a plea to Hong Kong authorities for the release of 11 South Korean farmers, who are accused of staging illegal rallies there on Dec. 17.

The Korean stars, widely popular in East Asia, said in their plea that they felt sorry for the unintentional clash between Hong Kong police and Korean protesters, but asked the court to release the 11 Koreans now in custody. A group of Korean demonstrators went over to Hong Kong to stop WTO ministers' meetings from reaching a deal on trade liberalization, but during the rally, they collided with the port's police.

The plea will be delivered to the Hong Kong government and police by a Korean delegation on Jan. 8, prior to a trial for them.
