It looks like South Korea is still taking advantage of Psy and the popularity of Gangnam Style, even when it comes to their tourist police. Kim Seo-ryong, the designer of Psy’s quirky and stylish costumes, was also hired to design the uniforms for the officers. The uniforms consist of slim-cut pants, bright blue jackets, berets, and of course the signature dark sunglasses.
So what exactly is a tourist police? Apparently they are responsible for protecting visitors from getting ripped off, in addition to helping visitors by speaking Chinese, Japanese, and English. With my luck in bargaining and shopping in foreign countries, I really could’ve used the help of one of these guys!
And what better way to introduce the new tourism police force to the public than to have them perform Gangnam Style?
