After the 2002 World Cup Tournament and the 2008 Summer Olympics in Seoul, Korean people have one more time to experience the two large- scale sport events such as PyeongChang Winter Olympics 2018 (falling on February 9- 25) and Paralympic Winter Games (falling on March 9-18) this year.
At K- Style Hub, Seoul, visitors have a chance to find information on interactive 360-degree screens near a white tiger “Soohorang” and a black bear “Bandabi”-the mascots of the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games to be held in Pyeongchang, Gangwon, South Korea.
Accordingly, PyeongChang (alpine skiing), Gangneung and Jeongseon (competitions in ice) took place in Gangwon province.
President of Korean Tourism Organization (KTO) Mr. Jung Chang Soo shared that the facilities upgraded as well as invested to serve the sport events which planned for being re-used for the next international- scale sport playgrounds, tourism and entertainment activities.
