SK Telecom’s pavilion for the Yeosu Expo has attracted more than 1 million visitors since it opened in May, company officials said.
The officials said the pavilion received its 1 millionth visitor Friday, two days before the Expo ends its three-month run in the southern coastal area on Sunday.
Expo organizers expect the number of visitors to reach 8 million as targeted by the organizing committee. Bureau International des Expositions secretary-general Vincete Gonzalez Loscertales called the exposition a success.

SK Telecom opened its pavilion named “We_Cloud” in the corporate pavilions area as the Expo started in Yeosu on May 12.
Company officials said given that 7 million people visited the Expo site as of Aug. 6, one of the seven visitors looked around the SKT pavilion.
They said compared with other corporate pavilions, the SKT hall has drawn particular attention from visitors as it offers eye-catching exhibits.
In the three-story building, SK Telecom has showcased the company’s advanced information and telecommunication technology on the first floor by offering smart learning, smart car, smart health and smart commerce. Higher floors contain artworks on various themes including a video work on conciliation.
The pavilion’s popularity has prompted a number of VIPs from governments and businesses at home and abroad to drop by the building during their visit to the Expo.
Company officials said some delegation members from 2015 Milano exposition organizing committee visited the SKT pavilion to benchmark the corporate hall.
