Young Korean singer Younha, nicknamed “Oricon comet” for the success she achieved in Japan, has been chosen as a promotional model for the Japan National Tourist Organization.
Stam Entertainment, her agency, said that she will work for six months to campaign for the organization’s global project “Visit Japan” in Korea, which is aimed at attracting 10 million tourists to the island country by 2010.
A promotional advertisement featuring Younha will be aired in Korean theaters from late this month until May of next year. It can be viewed on the website of the organization’s bureau in charge of the project.
As part of her work, she attended a ceremony celebrating the county’s 2 million tourist mark held at Haneda Airport on Thursday by the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, with minister Tetsuzo Fuyushiba in attendance.
The Korean singer will return to Korea after participating in a special Christmas concert in Tokyo on Sunday. She has recently released her first single album “Audition” in Korea.
