Get excited, guys!

Watsons is going all out with their upcoming K-Beauty Festa that's happening from 16 to 19 March, with a special appearance from South Korean Running Man star Song Ji-Hyo! :D

That's right, the ambassador of skincare brand Glutanex is expected to grace Watsons' K-Beauty Festa at Sentul Depot, KL on 17 and 18 March. She'll be sharing exclusive beauty tips on how she keeps her skin looking healthy and glowing all the time.

Fans of Korean beauty products will get to meet her in person during the festa, so you better mark your calendars if you don't want to miss her!

That's not all you can expect. The four-day K-Beauty Festa has a plethora of activities in store for you, such as beauty workshops, fun games, and exclusive freebies!

Not only will you get to instantly purchase health and beauty products from 19 participating Korean brands, you'll also receive personalised health and beauty advice from them.

Psst... we even heard that some of these international brands will be organising candle and floral workshops! Sounds like a perfect date idea with your oppa. ;)

If you love freebies, Watsons will be giving away RM200 worth of goodies* and RM20 cash vouchers** upon RSVP-ing

As K-Beauty Festa is endorsed by the Korea Tourism Organisation Malaysia (KTO), there will be a Korean experiential booth where you can wear a hanbok and play VR games. Now, you can take all those Insta-worthy photos to liven up your feed, yay!

You can RSVP for the Watsons' K-Beauty Festa here. Better hurry and register, otherwise you'll be FOMO when all these exciting activities take place. :P
