SEOUL, Aug. 26 (Korea Bizwire) — Korean horse racing was broadcast worldwide via CNN International on Sunday.
CNN’s “Winning Post: An Elegant Life Team” visited the Korea Racing Authority (KRA) last month to document activities over three days.
Korean horse racing was introduced along with Seoul’s Gyeongbok Palace, Gwangjang Market, and other major tourist destinations.
“Winning Post: An Elegant Life” introduces horse racing culture around the world. The program used to focus on Britain’s Royal Ascot, America’s Kentucky Derby, and other world-renowned races.
This time, however, they decided to come to South Korea to introduce the increasingly popular horse racing cultures in other countries.
South Korea is the first country that they visited to introduce both horse racing and the culture of the country in a 20-minute documentary.
The program talked about traditional culture in South Korea, as well as introducing horse race parks in Seoul and Busan as some of the major tourist spots in the country.
The program conducted interviews with various foreign professionals working in the Korean horse racing industry.
“The recent CNN broadcast will serve as an opportunity to strengthen the worldwide reputation of Korean horse racing,” said the KRA. “It is a chance to tell the world about Korean horse racing culture.”
