The Gangnam District of Seoul has announced on August 30 that Hallyu group Super Junior has been appointed as the honorary ambassadors of the district following Girls’ Generation and Rain.
In gratitude for raising awareness of Gangnam, the district will also award Psy with an appreciation plaque. The district has invited the star to become an honorary ambassador in the future.
The region of Gangnam became famous worldwide as Psy’s “Gangnam Style” gained popularity internationally. The song advertized the district, making it a place of curiosity for many foreigners and a must-visit place in Korea.
Gangnam is considered the center of the Hallyu wave. The district will partner with big entertainment agencies for the plan of making Gangnam the tourism “Mecca” of Hallyu.
