Who’s excited? I’m excited! Why am I excited? Because of the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang! That’s right! Yesterday, the Olympic Committee voted on the site of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, and PyeongChang overwhelmingly beat out Munich. Germany and Annecy, France. Yay for Korea!!
Now, this is a ‘third time’s the charm’ deal for PyeongChang, as they bid for the 2010 and 2014 Winter Olympics, also. By the time of this Olympics, it will be 30 years between Korea’s two Olympics – the first being the Seoul Summer Olympics in ’88.
I am a total Olympics junkie. I firmly believe that the world should pretty much shut down for two weeks for every Olympics so that people can just watch the games. Whenever the Olympics roll around, I am glued to the tv/computer/wherever I can watch or get updates. Therefore, I think I’m going to work hard on my Korean so that I can get a job as an interpreter/something during the PyeongChang Games. Especially if I can get to work backstage or something in the opening and/or closing ceremonies, ’cause you know Korea’s going to bring out their big guns for performances!
Who do you think will be headlining the PyeongChang opening and closing ceremonies? Current big names like Super Junior, Big Bang, and SNSD? Newly popular bands like Secret, KARA, and B2ST? Or maybe bands that haven’t debuted yet… the possibilities are endless…
