The Seoul Metropolitan Government announced the results of its evaluation for the Hansik Audition “Delicious SEOUL Story,” which was held for foreigners from around the world to spread the hallyu fever to hansik, and thus lead the phenomenon to actual Seoul torus.
The contest attracted the participation of 64 teams from 27 countries. Five teams were singled out as distinguished teams, and ten participants from four countries will be invited to visit Seoul from November 23 to 26.
“Delicious SEOUL Story” was hosted by the Seoul Metropolitan Government for a month from October 1 to 31 through its YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/visitseoul).
The event was hosted jointly by the Seoul Metropolitan Government and Asiana Airlines. Ten members of the distinguished teams will experience traditional culture, including visits to famous restaurants in Seoul, attend a hansik cooking class, and visit Bukchon Hanok Village.
Furthermore, they will participate in the final round competition, in which they will demonstrate their own creative recipes in a bid to become the winning team on November 25.
The Seoul Metropolitan Government will film the entire event, and upload the footage onto “Stories of Delicious SEOUL Story Experience” on YouTube to promote the latest charms of Seoul to web users worldwide.
