“The soft launch of District K spearheads its goal of opening up tremendous opportunities to Korean retailers to Malaysia and attract even more tourists ,” said 1 Utama director and Malaysia Shopping Malls Association (PPK) president Tan Sri Teo Chiang Kok during the signing ceremony with four Korean retail brands at 1 Utama yesterday.
