[Gallery] Honorary Ambassador SHINee Wants You to Visit Gangnam!

Gangnam is the one of Seoul’s most famous districts as a center of media, business, and culture. With its high rise buildings, fashionable young people, and contagious energy, it’s hard not to miss it when you are in visiting in Seoul. But SHINee is here to make that even harder. How can you not visit, when SHINee is oh so brightly leading you there?

SHINee was appointed an honorary ambassador of Gangnam today at its district office building. EXO will follow in two days, appointed as another honorary ambassador. SHINee and EXO were selected by Gangnam as representative Hallyu Stars. They are part of the district’s efforts to promote tourism. As of 2013, 50.8% of foreign tourists, approximately 5.1 million people, who visited Seoul visited Gangnam-gu. Through appointing representative Hallyu stars like SHINee and EXO, Gangnam-gu plans to attract even more foreign tourists. The goal is to reach 8 million tourists.

Will you be part of the 8 million?
