First time I heard about this event and SHY will be PR Envoy (?). I wonder, does that means they are going to sell lots of different kind of kimchi there?
Shinhwa member Jun Jin and GOD member Son Ho-young have been named PR envoys for the 2007 Gwangju Kimchi Festival.
City officials say they chose four celebrities for the position including the two singers as they are recognized Hallyu stars in Asia.
Jun and Son pledged to do their best to promote Korean kimchi to the world. They will participate in kimchi making programs with foreign visitors during the festival.
The appointment ceremony and news conference were held Wednesday at the Renaissance Seoul Hotel.
In its 14th year, the Gwangju Kimchi Festival will run Oct.17 to 21 at Joongoi Park in the city’s Bukgu district.
