The ministry said that some 12,000 tourists have been visiting the Korean Pavilion a day, accounting for about 15 percent of the total visitors to the Milan Expo.
Should this momentum continue, it expects to have a total of some 20 million visitors by October.
Under the global expo’s theme of “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life,” the Korean Pavilion has been introducing a variety of healthy Korean dishes, ranging from bibimbap (mixed rice and vegetables), galbijjim (beef rib stew) to Japchae (sweet potato noodles) and bibim-myeon (mixed noodles).
