Another Hallyu wave will hit Singapore next month! You might have heard about it already – Yes! It’s the opening of Pororo Park in Singapore. Pororo the Little Penguin is South Korea’s top animation character, and it’s well-known internationally too. When I shared the news with Edison, he was truly excited.
First opened five years ago in Seoul, Pororo Park integrates entertainment and educational elements in an indoor playground setting. With seven Pororo Parks in South Korea and three in China, Pororo Park Singapore will be the first in Southeast Asia.
Just one month to its official opening, here are 8 things you need to know about the new Pororo Park Singapore.
