SEOUL, Jan. 22 (Yonhap) -- President Park Geun-hye expressed hope on Friday that South Korea's culture will be born again as a cultural asset shared by mankind.

She also said South Korea is seeking to help plant new seeds of hope in areas affected by conflict and poverty through K-pop and other aspects of Korean culture.

"At a time when borders are eroding, when our world is increasingly becoming a shared community, I look forward to humanity being brought together and connecting through culture," Park said in a video message at a "Korea Night" function hosted for foreign business leaders at the World Economic Forum under way in the Swiss ski resort of Davos. "I hope is to see Korea's culture go through the kind of renewal that would make it more accessible across the world."

South Korean pop culture has gained wide popularity in China, Southeast Asian countries and other parts of the world in recent years.

In 2014, Park attended the forum, known as the "Davos Forum."
