The letters were sent as the international garden exposition being held in Suncheon, 415 kilometers south of Seoul, has reached the 2-million-visitor mark this week, just two months after its opening. It is well on track to reach the 4-million-visitor target by the October closing.

“We will dedicate our best efforts to turn the expo into a beloved one that helps all visitors make meaningful memories,” Cho Chung-hoon, the mayor of Suncheon, said in the letters. He called for continued support and attention from the local governments for the remaining four months of the event.

It offers scenic views of 83 different types of exotic gardens as well as a variety of cultural events, exhibitions and performances running daily to entertain visitors.

Located near one of the world’s top coastal wetlands Suncheon Bay, the event will run until Oct. 20.
