People, organizations and even objects that have promoted South Korean culture globally have been honored with the 'Korea Image Award 2021.'
The annual award was given out by the Corea Image Communication Institute in a ceremony on Thursday.
This year's main winners were the YouTube song 'Baby Shark,' the group Trot Men competing on the singing show Mister Trot, and the Secretary General of the UN Generation Equality Forum, Delphine O, who came to Korea to accept the award in person.
"Considering what the prize is about, as a French-Korean citizen, I have contributed modestly to the brightening of Korea's image abroad. And I'm very proud of my Korean ancestry and culture."
