    Basically the UK are leaving the european union and because of that a lot of trade deals are cancelled. Signing with S.korea could open up the possibility of trade deals in the future (which would be nice), and yes, we plan on getting new trade deals with europe when everything is sorted.

    The trade deals sort of become void i think. Its all very complicated and even educated brits gets confused.

    I'll believe it if and when London hosts more Kpop concerts, which as of right now is almost non-existent. Still, nice to see this between London and Seoul as a Brit :)
