Visitors pose at a Korea festival in Bangkok, Thailand on Sunday.

The Korean Embassy in Thailand and the Korea-Thailand Communication Center hosted a Korea festival in Bangkok on Sunday.

The event included a charity bazaar selling personal items donated by 130 Korean celebrities such as Lee Joon-gi, Lee Min-ho and members of TVXQ, Super Junior and Girls' Generation.

The bazaar raised W24 million, which will be donated, along with an additional W28 million raised by Korean residents there, to aid victims of recent devastating floods in Thailand (US$1=W1,134).

Korean pop culture is extremely popular in the Southeast Asian country, with over 150 Korean soap operas airing there over the last four years.
