John Hyungkwan Park, director, KTO Toronto Office

The Korea Tourism Organization has announced that John Hyungkwan Park has been appointed the new director for the KTO Toronto Office.

Park has been with the KTO for more than 20 years with previous overseas appointments in Singapore from 2009 to 2011 and Toronto from 2001 to 2002. His previous experience within the Toronto office has helped to prepare Park for his new role as director.

"I am very excited to return Canada after 14 years," Park said. "I am looking forward to working closely with all the tourism partners in promoting Korea and continue to develop niche tourism products such as Korean beauty, wellness, medical tourism, Korean wave, and MC&IT within the Canadian marketplace."

With the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics Games is about one year away, Park said "I am sure Korea will soon be the focus of the world. This will be an ideal opportunity for Canadians to travel beyond Seoul to explore the beauty of Korea."
