Jang Geun Suk has been selected as a promotional ambassador for the upcoming 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics, 2018 Pyeongchang Paralympics, and the Gangwon Province, and will be officially appointed by the Gangwon Provincial Government at a ceremony on December 8.
A source from Jang Geun Suk’s agency said, “It is an honor to promote the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics and 2018 Pyeongchang Paralympics, which are taking place in our country 30 years after the 1988 Olympics.

Choi Moon Soon, the governor of Gangwon Province, thanked the actor for choosing to actively participate in promoting the Olympics and the Paralympics. “We have high expectations as he has acted as the cultural bridgehead between Korea, China, Japan, and Asia. With the start of the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics, the festivities will continue on to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. I am confident that Jang Geun Suk’s promotional activities will become a great example,” stated the governor.
