Please note that Korean dramas have not been chosen to be promoted yet at that event. We understand that is due to the fact they already benefit from a large visibility, and because animation is the audiovisual product that has been elected by KOCCA for further promotion.

 

However, the week before, there will also be a themed bus inviting people to join a giant Gangnam Style flashmob on the day.

Thanks to the Korea Tourism Organization, you also have the opportunity to maybe win a trip for two to Korea by answering a few questions and submitting your voucher on Trafalgar Square.
