Hodori, the animated Tiger mascot for the 1988 Seoul Olympics, greeted visitors to the Korean Pavilion from the top of a 8-metre high colourfully decorated traditional Korean tower at the entrance to the Pavilion.

Being the year of the Seoul Olympics, various displays pertaining to the Games, such as a model of the Seoul Sports Complex, were displayed, and in the "Culture Zone" a traditional Korean-style room and accompanying art scroll displayed classic Korean culture in the home. Also to be fondly remembered was the Pavilion Restaurant, serving visitors traditional take-away Korean cuisine.
