The giant panda pair arrived in South Korea in March 2016 on a 15-year lease. Their names, Le Bao and Ai Bao, mean pleasant and lovely treasures.

Everland built a 3,300-square-meter Panda World to accommodate the endangered species. The panda species was under threat of extinction but gained great popularity for lovely looks and rarity in the world.

About 14 million people have visited the Panda World to see the panda family, according to Everland.

The pandas were leased to South Korea for a joint research purpose. China had previously loaned a pair of pandas to South Korea in 1994.
