“Zagreb has had direct connections to South Korea from the beginning of September with Korean Air linking the Croatian capital and Seoul.
So far the results have been better than expected with the South Korean airline reporting an impressive occupancy rate for all flights. There can be no doubt that Croatia is an “in” destination in South Korea, with the starting point being a popular Korean TV series that was filmed in the country and now riding the wave of positivity from the 2018 World Cup in Russia. And the airline is pulling out all the stops to attract even more passengers to Croatia with a series of promotional videos that are being shown through Korean on mainstream TV channels.” (Dubrovnik Times)
