Wednesday marks the Pavilion Day of South Korea at the 2010 Shanghai World Expo. Celebrating the theme of "Friendly City, Colorful Life", the South Korea Pavilion welcomes guests from near and far with its Korean style carnival and technological power.

The three-story South Korea Pavilion is comprised of the 20 basic letters of the ROK alphabet. It showcases blueprints of future cities that incorporate the country's most advanced technology and traditional culture.

Inside the pavilion, visitors experience the current and future urban life of the country by way of images and videos projected onto screens along the corridors.

The pavilion is also keen on environmental protection, calling for more public concerns for reducing the emission of carbon dioxide. People in South Korea are encouraged to ride bicycles instead of driving their cars, and there are lanes especially tailored for bikes on various roads.
