First Lady Kim Yoon-ok has been named honorary chairwoman of the national committee promoting Jeju Island to be listed among the New Seven Wonders of Nature. A event marking her appointment at Cheong Wa Dae on Wednesday was attended by committee chairman Chung Un-chan, Jeju Governor Woo Keun-min, and promotional ambassadors Go Doo-shim, Kim Tae-hee, Han Jae-suk, Chae Rim and Park Sun-young.

A Cheong Wa Dae spokesman said the first lady hopes that Jeju will garner strong support at home and abroad, adding the campaign provides an opportunity to discover the island's charms and raise awareness about them.

Kim said she will visit the resort island to promote the campaign and voted for Jeju by phone at the event. In a recent visit to Zayed University in the United Arab Emirates, she called on the audience to make efforts together for the selection of Jeju and the Bu Tinah archipelago of the UAE, which are among the 28 nominees.

The selection process is handled by the Swiss-based non-profit New7Wonders Foundation. The vote takes place online at or by telephone.
