BIGBANG's Taeyang named honorary ambassador for PyeongChang 2018

BIGBANG's Taeyang named honorary ambassador for PyeongChang 2018

Today the world is celebrating International Olympic Day as the countdown continues until the start of the 2018 winter games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Do stated that he intends to discuss possible ways to ensure North Korea's participation at Pyeongchang 2018 with the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un inspects the construction site of Ryomyong Street, in this undated photo released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

"If the neighboring countries in north-east Asia, including North and South Korea, can host the World Cup together, it would help to create peace", Moon said.

Earlier this month, Moon suggested that the two countries apply to co-host the 2030 World Cup.

US Oil Prices Tumble Below $45 After Surprise Build in Gasoline Inventories
The EIA expects US output to grow by 460,000 bpd in 2017, while OPEC forecasts USA production to increase by 800,000 bpd in 2017. Crude futures continued to fall Wednesday after an industry group said USA oil and gasoline stockpiles rose again last week.

Do said he is also considering holding some of the Winter Games events in North Korea's new ski resort. The catchphrase was named after Masik Pass in eastern North Korea where soldiers were helping to build a ski resort as part of a push for more sporting facilities.

Jong-hwan is also supposedly mulling over the idea of forming a singular inter-Korean women's ice hockey team for the 2018 Games. His parents, Fred and Cindy Warmbier, said their son received "awful torturous mistreatment" while in North Korea.

"Given President Moon Jae-in's underlying belief in the need for dialogue, reconciliation and cooperation between the two Koreas, it certainly makes sense that South Korea would try some form of co-hosting".

However, the pivot towards reconciliation with North Korea could raise eyebrows in the USA, where President Donald Trump's early days in office have been marked by heightened tension with the communist state. President Donald Trump said North Korea's treatment of Warmbier "a total disgrace", and called the North Korean government "a brutal regime".

NBC, a unit of Comcast Corp, is the US exclusive broadcaster for the Olympics, and it usually uses the games to host its best advertisers and clients on site.
