KTO Names New Director For Toronto Office


The Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) has announced that John Hyungkwan Park is the new director for the KTO Toronto office.

Park has been with the KTO for more than 20 years, with previous overseas appointments being in Singapore from 2009 to 2011 and Toronto from 2001 to 2002.

His previous experience in the Toronto office has helped to prepare him for his new role here as director.

“I am very excited to return Canada after 14 years. I am looking forward to working closely with all the tourism partners in promoting Korea and continue to develop niche tourism products such as Korean beauty, wellness, medical tourism, Korean wave, and meetings, conferences and incentive travel within the Canadian marketplace,” Park said.

The Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics Games are “about one year away. I am sure Korea will soon be the focus of the world.

This will be an ideal opportunity for Canadians to travel beyond Seoul to explore the beauty of Korea.”
