I feel like they took some of the elements of every modern OC to make this OC

Those rope lights looked a bit like the DNA strands from Athens at the end...

Ew - speeches.  Pee break.

They really are showing everyone how to do this technology thing. God help Paris after this East Asian run ends :o

Well, now the speeches. I'm going to die of boredom with Thomas. :unsure:

Also while I've liked this ceremony a lot so far, the fireworks are a letdown. Guess this is what you get for not having a roofed stadium.

Really? Very oddly ordered ceremony then. I guess it helps them do the transitions between segments.

Hey guys, did you know Bach was a fencing champion? I had no idea

That's the thing about the Olympics. Gold Medals don't just go away.

PS: Cool speech from the South Korean OCOG president, highlighting the Olympic Asia Era.

'Peace In Motion' and 'Wish Fire' are the segment names.

Well so far I'm kind of let down especially since they didn't do much of a historical segment. Plus I missed the hot Tonga guy while trying to find a streaming place to get the games lol.

First segment was kind of an historical segment if you know korean culture. Many Gojoseon and Three Kingdoms era stuff showing up. Also they made clear from the beggining they wanted to show their vision of future Korea, since as an already established modern country they dont need to look always at the past. (kind of like London 2012 which only actual historical segment would had been Pandemonium)
