Tourism videos seem to be the rage among national tourism authorities these days.

Thailand, for example, recently unveiled a weepy music video starring Thai celebs and a Taiwanese actress, aimed at attracting much-coveted Chinese tourists.

The Korea Tourism Organization, on the other hand, has taken Korea's reputation as a technology leader to heart for its latest publicity endeavor -- producing an "interactive" HD promotional video starring K-Pop groups 2PM and Miss A.

Korea Tourism Organization 2pm miss a2PM's Taecyeon gives a Singapore fan the leather jacket he wore in the video during the press conference for "Touch Korea."
The boy band and girls group were named public relations envoys for the Korea Tourism Organization late last month.

The video, titled "Annyeong" is part of a new promotional campaign titled "Touch Korea."

Slated for completion at the end of this month, the video already has its own trailer (above). If you can get past the motorcycle and leather jacket (what is it about male idols that makes directors want to shoot them on motorcycles?) the highlights reel reveals expensive, and surprisingly beautiful cinematography.
