After the national flags of Korea and Japan were raised, accompanied by the national anthem of each country, the Chairman of Boyang Ltd., named our newest product "Boyang Bering". When the tethering cord was cut by the godfather, a champagne bottle smashed the reefer's hull and a 'Kusudama' - Japan's traditional big paper ball - split open to drop multi-colored confetti and streamers. Fireworks were also set off into the new year's sky.
