Actor Lee Min-ho has starred in a commercial promoting travel to Korea. The commercial is part of efforts by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism to boost tourism after the outbreak of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome.
The film shows Lee visiting top tourist destinations including villages of traditional homes in Seochon and Bukchon and Cheonggye Stream in Seoul. Special permission was also given for shooting at the royal shrine of Jongmyo, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Lee's management agency said the actor welcomed the chance to promote the country around the world.
The commercial has been uploaded on YouTube and will air early next month on major TV networks overseas including CNN and China's CCTV.
