The mascot pictograms from the official website.

Also doing some search at Twitter it looks like the mascots are liked by most people in Korea so far. No big surprise the tiger is the most popular of the duo.

I feel sorry for Sochi Rabbit who wasn't invited along with Sochi Cat and Sochi Bear. Poor Sochi Rabbit

Since this year will be the year when PyeongChang would probably reveal their mascots for the 2018 Games, I thought I'd make a discussion thread about it. So basically you can come up with ideas

I submit Chin Mi the Smog Creature

Beijing 2022 should make the Black/Moon Bears its mascot in light of this horrible practice in that country...

Oddly enough, it may already have started within Korea (though I wouldn't entirely trust this article):

The organizers are setting up a committee in charge of recruitment, training and management of all volunteers and producing manuals inspired by similar bodies at the 2014 Incheon Asian Games and 2015 Summer Universiade in Gwangju.

Recruitment starts in February next year and will extend until April 2017.

The mascots were officially presented a couple of days ago on a ceremony

 

 

For what i've read through korean websites, it seems the plan was always doing a shoot out to Hodori from the beggining with a white tiger. Some preliminary designs made between 2014-2015 were leaked some days ago.

Glad they're already promoting the next games we'll be seeing after Rio's. Soohorang looks cute as ever. And that animation was seriously adorable. Much like how Rio used a 2D animation style reminiscing of Cartoon Network shows these days, Pyeongchang is using the 3D one which has been popular with kids lately because of shows like Telemonster and Miraculous (the later which is co-made with Japan and France)

Kakao Messenger also released a special set of emoticons for the Rio Olympics though not involving the mascots (they are going to release ones later, though)

Soohorang and Bandabi wishing us a Happy New Year 2017 with the traditional deep bowing.

Also, there is a small House of Soohorang and Bandabi in Pyeongchang (apparently nearby Alpensia resort)

Is there a way to order these through their stores in other countries.

North face does have tshirts and polos with the Pyeongchang symbol.

Some more pics i got of merchandise of the mascots which they're apparently selling on both Lotte and The North Face (though I can't find a website for the former with prices or anything so far )
