The city of Busan is pushing to host an art museum for the Lee Kun-hee Collection.
Local governments across the country are pushing to attract the art museum
to showcase more than 20,000 artworks donated by the late Samsung Group Chairperson Lee.
At a press conference Thursday at North Port, where the Opera House is being constructed, Mayor Park officially announced the city of Busan’s intention to host the Lee Kun-hee Collection Art Museum.
Busan’s art and culture communities are also expected to form a bidding committee soon.
