Emily Cho of Korean Air honored for Canada TV ads
Emily Cho, an executive of Korean Air and the youngest daughter of Hanjin Group Chairman Cho Yang-ho, received a plaque of appreciation from the Canadian Tourism Commission yesterday for running TV commercials featuring Canada’s natural wonders and tourist attractions.
Siobhan Chretien, regional managing director for emerging markets of the commission, delivered the plaque at the commission’s Seoul office.
The plaque is to appreciate a recent increase in the number of Korean tourists bound for Canada after Korean Air commercials started running in some countries including Korea on Dec. 9, 2011.
According to Korean Air, the number of Korean tourists to Canada rose 5 percent, and there has been an increase in inquiries about travels to the North American country.
Cho majored in communications at the University of Southern California.
