Chong Il-woo, the managing director of Phillip Morris Korea said, "Cigarette has more harmful ingredients in tar than in nicotine. We developed IQOS based on an idea that most of the cigarette's harmful ingredients are generated when the cigarette is burned.

Philip Morris will start selling IQOS and its tobacco leave heets in Seoul from June 5. They will be sold through IQOS dedicated shops and CU convenience stores within Seoul. email@example.com
