Pyeongchang 2018 Ceremonies
Ikarus360 posted a topic in PyeongChang 2018 Ceremonies DiscussionsWith almost only one year to go, I guess it's maybe time to make a proper thread for discussion about the ceremonies. However, it looks like there are some issues surounding the production of the ceremonies, according to this link http://news.sbs.co.kr/news/endPage.do?news_id=N1003757002 It seems that there were some internal conflicts between Song Seung Hwan, the ceremonies director, and Jeong Gu Ho, art director, which forced the later to resign (apparently there were a lot of creative differences between the two, so its now feared the ceremonies might suffer because of this issue). However, Song assures everything is set up and they're now on the process of picking an Agency which will be in charge of delivering the show. Also, the budget of the ceremonies, according to the link, is 100000000000 Won , which is around $85 million. A very big budget, far above Rio's and in comparison to London. Looks like they want to go all out, but they're now having internal creative conflicts rather than money issues.
With less than a week to go until the end of the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic Winter Games and the Closing Ceremony, I thought it would be nice to start this topic so that there is no hassle in creating a topic after Closing Ceremony is done and also the fact that I feel as though I need to contribute something to the forums. What do you guys think of the Closing Ceremony?
