It might be a while until we all get to visit South Korea again. These days, we're trying to fight the longing by watching all our favorite K-dramas, trying different recipes at home, and appreciating every single K-pop comeback (there have been *so* many!). But it looks like there'll be one more thing to get excited about!
A Korea Town in Malate?
Apparently, Mayor Isko Moreno and Ambassador to the Philippines Han Dong Man have been talking about building a Korea Town in Malate, Manila!
On Wednesday, March 10, the Manila LGU Information Office tweeted:
Mayor Isko intends to Manila City Mayor strengthen the capital city's relations with South Korea: "We are building Korea Town in the Malate area to showcase Korean culture right in the nation's capital. We also told His Excellency about how we benchmarked Myeong-dong's markets in Binondo, Manila".
He also said that if the "City could extend any help to your country, we would be honored to do so."
