Yeosu Expo 2012 Tour!


“Waterful Yeosu, Wonderful Expo”

Join ROKing Korea and TalkToMeInKorean on the trip to Yeosu Expo 2012 on July 7th, 2012!

We are inviting 100 people to join us on the one-day trip.

The ticket for this tour will be only $15, and it will include transportation (from Seoul) and the admission fees to the expo. We will receive applications from June 19 through June 22, and send you invitation e-mails. And once you receive the invitation e-mail and pay the ticket price, your seat will be reserved and confirmed.

* The original cost for this trip is around $120, including the round-trip transportation ($90) from Seoul to Yeosu and the admission fees ($30) for the Expo.

The participants will form teams of 5, and be given small missions to complete throughout the tour to win souvenirs and prizes. If you want to be in the same team as your friends, you can write your friend’s name in the application form.


The staff from both TalkToMeInKorean and ROKing Korea will be joining the tour with you too. We are looking forward to having a lot of fun on the trip!

For transportation, we will be using buses to go from Seoul to Yeosu, and we will gather at 7:30 AM in Seoul to arrive in Yeosu by 11:30 AM. We will spend roughly 6 hours at the Expo and come back to Seoul. (The location of meet-up and departure will be decided soon and announced.)

Our ticket price will include the bus fare, admission fees for the Expo, souvenirs and prizes. Lunch and dinner, however, will NOT be provided.

After arrival at the Expo location, we will be giving you small missions and tasks to complete, but overall, you are free to do anything you want with your team.

  • Godzilla

    p.s. we are from Sydney so it would have been awesome to go!~!~

  • Dan

    I just wonder whether Korean can attend or not?

  • jlk

    Is there any such trip from Daegu. We are in Daegu and it will be helpful for us as we not good at speaking korean.

  • if I were Korean I’ll be there,, 🙁 its too expensive if I go there from my country,, I wanna be there,,

  • hestina

    i’m in China, so how do i take part in the activity?

  • Marie

    I’m in the United States. I really wish i could go.

  • Shelldince Victor

    I am at Daejeon. Can I join the group from daejeon?? Also, I have 2 tickets to enter the expo. I got it for 33,000 each.

    • If you are in Daejeon, you will have to travel on your own to Yeosu. Other than that, you can still apply for it!

  • Uffff… I won’t get to Korea until Sept., unfortunately!! 🙁

  • Ashu

    This excited me but couple of questions – I don’t understand, how could it be on $15 per person? Can one believe on this? Is there anybody experienced this before? What about if someone doesn’t get selected for this?

    • It’s normally impossible, but we were able to make it super cheap through collaboration with the expo committee. No one (not even us) has done this before because the expo is happening only this year in Yeosu for the first time. If you don’t get selected for the trip, you don’t have to pay : )

  • sangjun

    couple ques.
    is it random to get selected?
    can high schooler go?

  • OH MY GOD! I’M SO IN! 😀
    <3 Thanks for the opportunity, TTMIK and ROKing Korea! Even if I don't get picked 🙂 I really wanted to go to the expo, but I couldn't scrape up that extra money…

    Did you know that if you went on the 5th (I know it's not a weekend), you could watch 2PM and Miss A perform? That would be awesome 😀

  • As a blogger for, I had the opportunity to attend the expo last weekend – I would just like to give a heads up to expect heavy heavy queues – thankfully, the other bloggers and I had press passes which allowed us to skip the queues but most of the main venues had queues easily in excess of an hour and up to three hours at peak time. The company pavilions are very good – the aquarium, which boasted a 3 hour + queue time last Saturday, is really not worth it (an aquarium is an aquarium – this one is no different!) Aside from this, the expo is fantastic and I hope you all have a fab day out! (Weather in mind, don’t forget sun cream, a lot of the queuing areas aren’t covered either!)

  • Cori

    진짜~ 가고 싶어요

  • I’ve signed up 😀
    Hope I’ll get invited along with my friend >.<

  • i have also signed uo 😀

  • Red

    Hi there! May I know whether the period of the Expo will extend or not? Thanks 🙂

  • trainspotting

    until when can I have a possibility of receiving invitation?
    Today I haven’t got : (

  • Paula

    So the invitation emails were supposed to have been sent out yesterday, June 23…correct? So, if my email box is empty of an invitation, then there’s no more chance of getting an invite? 🙁 If by chance, there are two people who got the invite but doesn’t pay in time, I hope me and my friend can take those spots 😀 Really want to go with everyone~~!

  • Where will we meet for departure?

  • Piyush

    Hi All,

    This seems to be a very good proposition. My bad – I got late in applying but am keeping my fingers crossed for getting IN. 🙂

    Let us see what is there in store for me….


  • Hello again!

    I got an invitation, and I didn’t break anything. 🙂 But I also haven’t received any information yet, even when I paid almost a week ago. Is this normal? 😮

    • You will get an email today with all the details : )

  • Hi – I signed up for the contest but I do not think I got a winner email. I signed up with my friend and she won. I thought it was a group contest? Does this mean I did not win?

    Thanks for your help!

  • Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article
    seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon.
