MANILA,Philippines — The Embassy of the Republic of Korea recently held a reception for Korean National Day and Armed Forces Day at the Makati Shangri-La. Among the guests were representatives from the government, diplomatic corps, media, private sector, civil society and NGOs, as well as partners in cultural and scientific cooperation and members of the Korean community in the Philippines.

“I believe we have a common understanding that maintaining and strengthening the friendship between Filipinos and Koreans will further contribute to regional peace and stability, which in turn will lead to co-prosperity,” said Korean Ambassador Han Dong Man.

He noted that Korean visitors in the Philippines reached 1.6 million, while more than half a million Filipino tourists went to Korea last year owing to the growing popularity of K-pop, Korean drama, cosmetics, food, and other consumer products among Filipinos.
