Philip Morris Korea has rolled out Marlboro Zing Fusion, the latest brand from its flagship Marlboro lineup, in Korea on Wednesday.

“In addition to Marlboro’s signature smooth taste, the capsule-inserted cigarette exudes a distinctive note of refreshing MixballTM capsule,” the Korean operation of the world’s largest tobacco maker said.
