Handover ceremony and artistic segment executive director Yoon Ho-Jin gave few details at a press conference Saturday of Sunday’s PyeongChang 2018’s handover ceremony but he said the ceremony will deliver a story under the theme of “A Journey Together”.
He added, “we have a team of the best directors in Korea and world-renown cast members for the artistic segment, and will showcase Korea’s unique artistic aura to the world”.
PyeongChang 2018 Organizing Committee (POCOG) President and CEO Kim Jin-sun said at the press conference, “our vision is very clear – new horizons, developing industries, building a hub of winter sports in Gangwon province. Our Games will also be a Games of culture, environment and peace.
“When we receive the Olympic flag tomorrow (Sunday), PyeongChang essentially begins. We will get the whole world on board”.
At the press conference President Kim talked about Games’ security and said, “the Republic of Korea is one of the world’s safest countries. However, considering the special nature of the Olympics, a security committee headed by the Prime Minister is already in operation”.
