First Filipino appointed Korean Tourism Organization ambassador Jessy Mendiola have more to surprises up her sleeves now in the roster of international celebrities PSY, Super Junior, 2PM, Miss A, Paul Potts and Hollywood star Lindsay Price. During the appointment event held at Manila Peninsula Hotel last Tuesday, Korean Tourism Organization shared to the media the variety of activities of KTO's Be Inspired Visit Korea campaign. On her fourth visit last October 31, 2013, Star Magic Philippines' Jessy Mendiola was appointed by the Republic of Korea as an honorary Korean Tourism Ambassador participating in KBS channel's World Date with K-Pop stars Shinee. Jessy had been visiting the country exploring the magic and culture she loves to share to fans.
Korean Tourism Organization will be promoting K-Beauty and Wellness tour, as part of Korea's Premium Tour which Jessy explored last October 29. For five days, she went to three Korean hospitals, Changdeokgung palace, N-Seoul Tower, Lotte World, and other famous tourism spots. She also met and interviewed 2NE1's Sandara Park and K-Pop idol Group Boyfriend. Jessy is fast becoming a world-class talent now with top-rating teleserye Maria Mercedes on ABS-CBN's Mexican telenovela remake and as the sultry celebrity endorser for Bench and McDonald's. She also stars in the Star Cinema and Skylight Films' latest comedy blockbuster Call Center Girl with Pokwang and Enchong Dee now showing at all cinemas nationwide. Mr. Sangyong Zhu, Director of Korean Tourism Organization Manila Office also said that they are happy to have Jessy as their Honorary Tourism Ambassador. According to Jessy, visiting Korea four times is not enough to fill your travel plans and she hopes to be back by next year to visit other enchanting places and more culture wonders. I'm also so excited to share the other activities of KTO with photo contest and the new campaign, KTO Journalist Club.
