Thank you Muhler for that information about Danish and Korean commerce. Are you saying that 78 company representatives are accompanying MF on this trip??
Very interesting about the Korean adoptees in Denmark.

Very interesting about the Korean adoptees in Denmark.
Representatives for 76 companies are accompanying M&F on this trip.

I read an article about one of the companies yesterday, Coloplast, which manufacture various supplies for the hospitals.
They had of course been in contact with various Korean businesses from home.
The large number has partly to do with the EXPO exhibition and partly to do with the royal effect.
M&F are royals, that's always a bit glamourous and interesting, or at least different.
On top of that they are a young and attractive couple, - even better!

This is a new market, so a Korean business man, going to the exhibition or a dinner, out of curiosity or because of his wife, is almost certain to meet several Danish representatives within his branch.

To put it simple. What is more interesting:
A) Come to dinner and let's have a chat about our products and you can meet our Minister for Trade, XX.
or
B) Come to dinner and let's have a chat about our products and you can meet our young and attractive looking CP couple.

- We are basically a nation of used-horse-dealers.

You will see a lot of now adult adoptees from Korea in good positions if you go to DK.
It's very difficult to adopt here, so that means people from the middleclass and up, with a steady family life, good income and good jobs are de facto the only ones who can adopt.
So their (adopted) children tend to get a better education and better jobs than average.

ADDED:

http://jp.dk/udland/asien/article2775579.ece

A fairly rare article about M&F from Jyllands Posten. - Jyllands Posten is very much a business paper. It's also the largest paper in DK and for those of us, who life outside Copenhagen, it's also the main national paper. The two other national papers Politiken and Berlingske are both very much Copenhagener papers.

Okay, M&F attended the EXPO exhibition. Everything was organised and the setting and visual effects vere perfect. Alas, the Danish stand is located next to the stand from Turkmenistan and the played traditional music at full throttle, completely drowning out the sppeches by the Minister for Trade and his Korean counterpart. - That sort of things happen....
Okay, cue M&F. They suddenly felt an urge for some coffee and with crowds of photographers trailing behind they went the nearest Starbuck for a cup of coffee. Starbuck probably wasn't displeased....
It also perplexed the security guards a bit.

It's a Danish company that handles the daily lightshow in connection with the exhibition, so DK is already ensured a good deal of attention.
M&F were on the news last night. They were sitting among the audience watching the exhibition. Unfortunately Mary was wearing a light dress and the wind coming in from the sea was chilly, so we saw Frederik chivalerously handing his wife a blanket.

And we have even more.

A gallery from TV2: TV 2 Gallery

Mary viste prsidenten billeder af brnene - TV 2 Nyhederne

M&F met President Lee Myung-Bak and his wife, Kim Yoon-Ok and here Frederik pulled out his Iphone and showed the President pictures of their children.
That delighted the president, who briefly showed the pics to the press. (See gallery).
Mary then showed him some more pics.

I saw this clip too. It was really sweet!

Many thanks for all these great pictures and articles. It's always a pleasure to follow our young and lovely Crown prince couple, and especially at these official trips. They seem to really enjoy each other.

Some, who knows about how the weather is right now in South Korea?

Only temporary.
He only had "water in the basement" for a few seconds.

It really isn't easy being a man. Either the arms are too long, the legs too short and/or the belly too big. Try find a suit matching all these criterias.

You women don't know how fortunate you are, you can just jump into a dress or a skirt. If it's too short, you are alluring. If it's too long, it's classic.

- I see in some of the photos from the reception in the garden, that Frederik must have bitten the Korean President. Both gentleman have parked their hands in their pockets.
However, judging from the bodylanguage the President seems to appreciate the laid back style.

Yes, I mean this concert :))))

TV 2 Gallery --> In this gallery you can see another beautiful photos.
I like those in which the article stated CP Frederik and CP Mary show pictures of their children. I can see here how Frederik is proud of his family :) or or maybe it's my imagination

I think these tours are a great opportunity for the Crown Prince and Crown Princess to spend time together...not only being representatives of Denmark...but also to spend some time enjoying each others company as a couple, as husband and wife...after all...they do have 4 children at home!
So it must be nice to have a short break and just be a couple!

I can see where you see the resemblance, they both have the same body type-long through the middle and athletic with good posture. They also share love of horse back riding!

Given their schedule on these types of tours and the accompanying staff members I would guess their alone time is pretty much limited to their hotel at bedtime, the same as at home in the palace.

Har du problemer med hjelmen, Mary? | www.bt.dk
Thank you, Roskilde

Let's have a look at the captions, they are informative and a good reference point.

#1-4: M&F at Daewoo shipyard. Here three seriously huge containerships are being build for Mærsk. - Mærsk McKinney-Møller didn't live to see them being finished. These ships are considered having reached the profitable limit for containerships in regards to size.
I'm pleased to see that Mary didn't do a Nyrup with her helmet. - Nyrup was a PM here in DK. During an event somewhere he was supposed to ride a bicycle and he was handed a way too small helmet. "Don't worry, no one will notice", he was told. Well, people did notice! Because Nyrup was pedalling away with a tiny helmet on top of his head and since then he was almost always portrayed with a way, way too small helmet on top of his head. - Still is sometimes.
#2: Notice how windy it is. Frederik is maintaining his balance by keeping his hands in his pockets.....

#5-7: M&F at the EXPO exhibition.

#8: M&F at Hotel Yeosu, where they attended a dinner in connection with EXPO 2012.

#9: During the EXPO opening ceremony. Mary is sitting next to the first lady of Peru, Nadine Heredia.

#10: M&F being officially welcomed to Korea by PM Kim Hwong-Sik and wife. - In accordance with the protocol. Frederik is after all only Crown Prince so it's not the President who is welcoming M&F, but the next in line. I.e. the head of the government.

#11-13: Hotel Yeosu and the opening ceremony again. As you can tell Mary wasn't the only one who needed a blanket.

#14-16: Mary had requested a visit to the Samsung Medical Centre, where she visited the neonatal ward and the ward for children with cancer.

#17: M&F and President Lee Myung-Bak and the first lady, Kim Yoon-Ok, whom M&F met during the Korean state visit to DK in 2011. - Notice the syncronized gentlemen.

#18: The iPhone episode, with M&F's children.

#19: I don't know whether the President is always a cheerful gentleman, but he appears to have fun here.

#20: At the Daelim Museum. Admiring Danish furniture design for the past 100 years.

#23: Mary signing the guestbook at the War Memorial.
