Seoul to bid for 2036 Summer Olympic Games - mk.co.kr - 18Oct22

“The cost of hosting the event is estimated to range from 5.5 trillion won ($3.82 billion) to 68 trillion won. The Seoul Metropolitan Government says it will be able to reduce the budget by utilizing the established facilities built for the 1988 Seoul Olympics and using sports facilities owned by universities and the private sector.”

”A new complex for sports and MICE in Jamsil to be set up in 2029 and the planned remodeling of Jamsil Olympic Stadium in 2026 will also be leveraged. A new residence for athletes, if built, will be sold to the private sector after the event to further reduce costs.”

Finally, now that Moon Jae In (the moron who thought a bid with the North was a good idea) is out of the picture, South Korea can now do a serious Olympic bid.

Honestly I think they should go with Seoul. Busan would also be more than capable of doing the job and they have also become an attractive and innovative city over the last years (plus they could do all of the sailing events here without spreading the venues location too much). However, I recall he later is still bidding for the 2030 Expo, which would also be a huge event for them logistically wise. Not sure if also bidding for the Olympics would also hurt their ambitions for 2030.
