•    A VR simulation of the PyeongChang 2018 Olympia Winter Games’ venues, as well as an introduction to their official mascots. 

•    The opportunity for visitors to be snapped in Korean costumes, get creative with craft workshops, as well as try their hand at traditional games including Tuho and Jegichagi. 

•    A taste of Korea with everything from traditional food and sauces to modern-day street food ready for sampling.
