- Lucky winner receives golden key at the Dongdaemun Event Center

On 21st, the Visit Korea Committee (chaired by Park Sam-koo) held an award ceremony for its “Find the Golden Key” event, organized as part of the Korea Grand Sale, at the Dongdaemun Event Center.

“Find the Golden Key” picked a lucky winner from among 5,000 foreign tourists who visited the Dongdaemun Event Center and presented receipts for purchases amounting to more than KRW 100,000 during the Korea Grand Sale.

Karasuno Riho, a 21-year-old tourist from Osaka, Japan, was named the lucky winner of the event. At the award ceremony, the Visit Korea Committee presented her with a golden key worth around KRW 1 million. Riho, who is a follower of the Korean wave and an avid user of Korean cosmetics, arranged her trip to coincide with the Korea Grand Sale. She said, “I’m very happy to be the winner of the golden key event. I will return to my country with wonderful memories of Korea.”

Secretary-General Han Kyung-ah of the Visit Korea Committee remarked, “Besides shopping during the Korea Grand Sale, I hope that foreign tourists visiting the Dongdaemun Event Center will participate in the various cultural activities and take home beautiful memories of their trip. In the future, the committee will strive to create a more festive Korea Grand Sale that reflects the consumption behaviors and preferences of foreign tourists.”

Meanwhile, the final weekly theme of the Korea Grand Sale from February 22 to 28 is the Must-Eat Week, during which foreign tourists visiting the Event Center get free samples of popular Korean foods. More details on the Must-Eat Week are available on the official website of the Korea Grand Sale.
