World Knowledge Forum (WKF) is a non-profit entity which aims to promote balanced global growth and prosperity through knowledge-sharing. WKF “brings together global leaders to address the importance of knowledge in meeting the challenges and opportunities of a rapidly changing world.” (Source: Wikipedia)
This year, big names like the Malaysian prime minister Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad, Alibaba Group’s Jack Ma, the CEOs of Uber and Nokia, the President of Estonia Kersti Kaljulaid, and more are scheduled to speak at WKF. And EXO’s Chanyeol will be one of them! This is an incredible honor, that further proves his global influence as a Hallyu star and a public figure in general.
