Mayor Isko Moreno spills all the deets!

In March 2021, a lot of us were super-excited after hearing that Mayor Isko Moreno and Ambassador to the Philippines Han Dong Man were talking about building a Korea Town in Manila! Well, it's definitely happening. In a recent interview with Summit Media journalists, Mayor Isko talked about the upcoming development, which will be located in Malate.

"Oh my god, it's in the pipeline! We already passed the ordinance," he says in an interview. Mayor Isko says he signed the ordinance about a month ago. "Because there is already a law, what we're going to do next is appropriate 'X' amount to develop the entire said area in Malate. Kasi ang gusto talaga namin doon is job generation and tourism. Talagang nanggigigil kami kasi ang dami naming puwedeng ibenta sa Manila!"
