K-Origin City

Hosted by the Ministry of Culture, Sports & Tourism and managed by the Korean Foundation for International Culture Exchange, the 2020 K-Culture Festival won fervent responses from global audiences—the introduction of tourist attractions and relevant programs in four regional tourism hubs: Jeonju, Andong, Mokpo, and Gangneung; and the K-Pop Concert, which 40 idol teams took part in.
During the second week of ‘Ga-deulim,’ a series of content regarding Jeonju was released.

In addition, they wore garments designed by Lie Sang Bong, who has made a significant contribution to promoting the beauty of Hangul abroad, and participated in a runway show at Gyeonggijeon Hall.
