UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) - The parent company of the Mohegan Sun casino says it has received a license from the Korean government to build a $5 billion resort near the international airport in Seoul.

The Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority says the project will include a hotel complex with 1,350 rooms, more than 20,000 square meters of retail space and an arena that it says would be the largest in South Korea.

The gaming authority is teaming with the KCC Corp., a South Korean chemicals company, and the airport for the project.

Gaming authority president Bobby Soper said Friday the company aims to help the Korean government fulfill its vision of “driving economic development by growing tourism, creating jobs, and showcasing Korean culture via the integrated resort.”
