Organizing Committee

Jae-youl Kim, Executive Vice President
Jae-youl Kim, Executive Vice President

Our journey began with a dream.
We dreamed of celebrating the Winter Games for the first time in Korea.
For over a decade, we never gave up hope and worked tirelessly to transform PyeongChang, a small but beautiful town, into a destination worthy of the Olympic Games.
Now we are fast approaching our goal. All of us in the organizing committee are working hard so we can welcome the world to PyeongChang in 2018.
Our desire is to inspire the global community with the Olympic values of excellence, friendship and respect, and to bring people together regardless of race, religion and nationality.
Please join us as our journey continues.
Thank you.
