We support and actively support the Busan Expo, which shares the potential of K-culture and K-content with the world.”
Before I was the first public relations ambassador for the 2030 World Expo Busan, I have a special affection for Busan.
It’s a city I personally like, and since I filmed many parts of my first film, , in Busan, I have a special regard for Busan.
I was very honored to take on the big role and responsibility of being a public relations ambassador, but it also put a heavy burden on my shoulders.
However, if I can be of any help in hosting the World Expo, one of the world’s top three events, in Busan, I decided to join it because I think it could have a positive effect on Korea as well as the cultural world.
Since last year, I have received a lot of unexpected support through promotional materials and publicity voices engraved with my face all over the Busan area. I’m getting a lot of messages saying it’s nice to see my face. There are times when I feel embarrassed to see my large-sized face, but I am very happy that it has become an opportunity to get closer to the citizens of Busan.
I hope that the love and interest from all of you will lead to the Busan World Expo. For this, we need a lot of support from the people.
If Busan, a cutting-edge city that embraces industry and culture at the same time, hosts the 2030 World Expo, it will be able to share the potential of K-culture and K-contents, which have begun to gain worldwide recognition, with people around the world and combine them with related industries to create great synergies.
In particular, I am confident that if Korean culture meets the Busan Expo, it will be a wonderful opportunity to raise Korea’s status as well as Busan as it will be able to radiate Korea’s cutting-edge technology and K-content to the world, as well as the charm of Busan. Please join us in our hopeful steps to change the future. thank you
