Kangwon Land nears five months of Covid-19 business suspension

Kangwon Land license extended

With its latest one-week delay of reopening until July 20, Kangwon Land now nears five consecutive months of business suspension over Covid-19 fears.

Operations at Kangwon Land were originally suspended on February 23.

Kangwon Land’s extended closure is said to be creating a profound negative impact on the local business environment, as it is located in an economically underdeveloped former mining community which relies on the facility to draw in visitors.

It is South Korea’s only casino that allows local people to gamble.
