Ultimate Korean Destination in Iloilo Launched: In a bid to cement the support of Iloilo to the Korean community, Festive Walk Iloilo launches K-Town, the ultimate Korean destination in the City of Love. Festive Walk Iloilo, nestled within Iloilo Business Park, has transformed the alfresco dining strip into a Korean-themed abode. A grand launching was held last August 26 to celebrate the opening of K-Town and to strengthen the ties between Iloilo and Korea.
The grand launching was graced by Mr. Graham Coates, First Vice President of the Megaworld Lifestyle Malls; Ms. Karmela Jesena, General Manager of Festive Walk Iloilo; dignitaries from the Iloilo Korean United Community Association, and other guests. Event highlights include performances from Thy Kingdom, Sidlangan, Zenin, as well as from Tiktok Star Dasuri Choi and Miss Universe 2020 Rabiya Mateo. Moreover, the ceremonial lighting of lanterns was held to signify the official opening of K-Town. See more photos here.
Festive Walk Iloilo is a long-time partner of the Iloilo Korean United Community Association, an organization recognizing Koreans as frequent visitors to the City of Love.
“K-Town is a first-of-its-kind event in the lifestyle township. It’s an outdoor food celebration that gathers the community to feast on the best of Korean and Ilonggo cuisines. The wide selection of eats is perfect for those who hunt for new flavors to try or those who want to taste their favorites all in one place. Guests can then dine in and enjoy their meals in a beautifully designed alfresco area,” excerpts from the Megaworld Lifestyle Malls website.
Korean Destination in Iloilo: K-Town is lined with Korean establishments such as Jip Bab, Rice and Rolls, 2D Samgyupsaranghae, The Best Taste Samgyup (BTS), Noryangjin Cupbob, Seoul Mate Home Kitchen, Tokki-Tokki, and more. Apart from Korean restaurants, Festive Walk Iloilo also takes pride in its other establishments such as Mamusa, UFrappe, Drink SLS, and Bottle Ground.
“To create K-Town, we have converted the entire stretch of Festive Walk Parade to this modern and beautiful space that is filled with Korean restaurants, outdoor establishments, installations, decorations, and more. We look forward to seeing Filipinos especially Ilonggos, Koreans, and of course other cultures enjoy the activities and take their loved ones here,” said Karmela Jesena, General Manager of Festive Walk Iloilo.
