And if that wasn’t enough, in order to mark the countdown to the Pyeongchang Olympics there will be a torch relay and flame-lighting ceremony at the Ancient Olympia on the 24th of October.

Not just for the countdown, the flame-lighting ceremony also represents unity, friendship, excellence, respect and encourages people to be inspired by the game’s message; ‘Passion. Connected’.

We’re beyond excited for the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics and cannot wait to see some of our favourite idols and group perform together~!
