Charm Lee, CEO of KTO, said, “PSY will headline Korea’s efforts to increase tourism by introducing popular travel icons. Users will be able to actively interact with the campaign by uploading their own unique contents on Wiki Korea, which will become an online database about Korea Travel, just like Wikipedia.”
CEO Charm Lee continued,“This Year, we are determined to introduce Korean tourist icons. They will highlight Korea’s spirit (Ki), entertainment (Heung), and heart (Jeong), which are key elements of Korean culture. I’m sure that they can be loved worldwide. KTO’s new ambassador PSY is a global super star. His songs ‘Gangnam Style’ and ‘Gentleman’ showed great global appeal, having about four hundred million views worldwide. We believe we can leverage PSY’s global popularity to effectively promote tourism in Korea; and hence, will use the TV commercials, starring PSY, to grab the attention of our global audience.”
In addition to the TV commercials, the campaign also launched ‘Wiki Korea” through KTO’s online communication platform “buzz KOREA.” The website shows 27 items and borrowed elements from the renowned internet encyclopedia, Wikipedia. Users can upload questions and answer freely on the website about the 27 cultural icons of Korea.
