SEOUL, March 3 (Yonhap) -- Seol Hyun of South Korea's girl group AOA was named an honorary ambassador for the April 13 general elections, the country's election watchdog said Thursday.

The 21-year-old singer will promote the election to increase voter turnout in the lead-up to the polls, the National Election Commission said.

"Seol Hyun is beloved by the people as a singer, actress and model," Kim Yong-hee, secretary-general of the commission said, expressing hope that she will promote the right election culture to the public.

On Wednesday, the parliament endorsed a bipartisan deal that outlines the redrawing of electoral constituencies for the election.

Seol, who debuted in eight-member idol group AOA in 2012, also starred in multiple TV shows and advertisements.
