Can you believe that opening ceremony for the Winter Olympics starts tomorrow, Friday 2/9/18?
I’m pretty thrilled that the Winter Olympics will be held in South Korea this year. I’m all about tying things into ISWAKD and making this site a fun destination for all. On top of that, the winter is my favorite time of year. It feels like fate that a few of my favorite things are converging at the same time. So while this blog is mainly about talking k-dramas, I also wanted to extend the ability to showcase content related to the PyeongChang Olympics. I will likely post periodically during the duration of the event between drama watching.
A lot of familiar faces will be serving as Honorary Ambassadors—such as Lee Dong Wook, Kim Woo Bin, Lee Min Ho, and Hong Jong Hyun to name but a few. There are also k-pop acts performing during the opening and closing ceremonies. I believe EXO is going to be performing at the closing ceremony. (Correct me if I’m wrong, though.)
I’ll be at work while a lot of the events are airing, so I won’t really have the opportunity to provide constant updates. I’m sure there are other blogs and places that will keep that info updated regularly. If you’d like to talk about the Olympics with me and with others here, you are more than welcome to leave your thoughts below in the comments. I may also add a temporary chat to the sidebar if anyone is interested. Please be sure to vote in the poll below and let me know!
