Busan’s Bae Jung-nam is honored
Model and actor Bae Jung-nam was selected an honorary ambassador of Busan, his agency YG KPlus announced on Wednesday.
Bae was voted the ambassador at an event held in April, where residents were asked to pick which celebrity would best promote their city. Singer Kang Daniel was chosen as the first ambassador, and Bae’s nomination was also finalized on Wednesday. The city will pick one more ambassador in the following month.
“I’m so happy and honored to represent my hometown as the honorary ambassador,” Bae said through his agency. “I will do my best to promote Busan’s beauty.” He also thanked the city’s residents for picking him.
An appointment ceremony will be held on July 20 at Busan City Hall.
