FT Island becomes ambassadors for Gangwon-Do Province.
Lee Hongki and Song Seunghyun, members of FT Island who gained lots of popularity in Korea and Japan, were at Gangwon-Do recently for a photoshoot to promote the province to Japanese tourists.
The two members introduced Gangwon-Do by experiencing the place themselves. They went to Kyungpo Beach, Chamsori Museum, rode on rail bikes as well as the beach train at Jungdong-jin, East Sea. The series of photoshoot by famous Japanese photographer, Shimokoshi Haruki, portrays the beauty and charm of Gangwon-Do.
Lee Hongki said that, “Having the duty of promoting Korea overseas, we hope that many tourists will come and visit Gangwon-Do.”
Gangwon-Do’s official homepage featuring “FT Island Treasure Hunt Tour, Go! Go! Gangwon-Do” will open on 19th October.
This is a joint project by KNTO, Gangwon-Do and Gangwon-Do Tourism Association.
