Young Hoon Namgoong was nominated the new President of the Korea Magazine Association and Estetica Korea received recognition from the Korean Minister of Culture, Sport, and Tourism for its excellent contents in 2013.
The presentation of these prestigious acknowledgements took place last week on the island of Yeouido (Seoul), during the 51st meeting of the Korea Magazine Association (KMA). The focus of the meeting was the presentation and the election of its fortieth leader. There were three candidates for the chair, with Young Hoon Namgoong winning a majority of the votes.
“I decided to run because, as Vice Presidente of the Korea Magazine Association, my powers were limited. If you support me, I will do my best in this new position,” promised Mr. Namgoong when he introduced himself to the assembly.
Mr. Namgoong is the publisher of the Korean edition of Estetica and Bellissima, a magazine dedicated to the world of beauty and spas. And Estetica Korea – which has recently entered its 16th year of publication – won the prestigious “2013 Excellent Contents” award from the Korean Ministry of Culture, Sport and Tourism.
