For those just hearing of this event, for the past few years, APL has focused its attention on the South Korean market and has since become the most sought after brand in the country. Last May, the brand paid over KR₩ 1,854,000,000 (~US$ 1.42 Million) during its APL City Series Tour, and those impressive results have not gone unnoticed.
