Amid talks about the opening of a possible travel bubble to Korea, Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) recently hosted an event showcasing all things Korean.


The perfect backdrop, a photographic exhibition highlighting Korean ceramics, Light Shadow: Koo Bohnchang, was also on display during the event, which was held at Sydney's Korean Cultural Centre (KCC).


The evening featured a panel discussion on specific areas of Korea including K-Culture, cuisine and general facts about travelling in Korea, while guests were treated to an array of Korean fare including its famous fried chicken (we call it KFC!).
