Appointment Ceremony Held for 16th Workers’ National Smile Team


On November 22, the appointment ceremony of the 16th Workers’ National Smile Team
was held at Tmark Grand Hotel Myeongdong, Seoul.
Exemplary workers in various fields gathered to renew their commitment to making Korea more welcoming for foreigners.



Before the event, the workers wore a flower corsage and posed for a shot at the photo zone.
Living up to their reputation as members of the National Smile Team,
their bright smiles were more beautiful than any flower.



At this ceremony,
a total of 110 workers were appointed from nine fields, including tourist police, transportation, and immigration and customs.
Being the first to welcome foreign tourists to Korea,
they showed great pride in their profession.



The ceremony kicked off
with opening remarks and a congratulatory speech by
Secretary-General Han Kyung-ah and Acting Chair Kim Hong-ju.
The most memorable part of the speech was that kindness—the key to making Korea a country to re-visit
—is simply smiling at visitors,
and treating them with warmth and sincerity.



The representatives of the 110 members headed to the stage
and shared their thoughts after receiving a medal and bouquet.
Congratulations to all newly appointed members!

The National Smile Team formed a heart shape with their fingers for the group photo.
Their dazzling smiles and cute finger hearts

Congratulations to all 110 members.
We look forward to the National Smile Team
taking the lead in spreading a culture of kindness.
Thank you once again!
