The PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games kicked off after the closing of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics. In celebration of its opening, the 17th University Students’ National Smile Team visited Gangneung Station and held a welcome campaign. Gangneung Station was bustling with many locals and foreigners visiting the city for the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics. Let’s check out the welcome campaign launched by the National Smile Team! Visitors wrote messages on this photo wall featuring the Paralympics mascot Bandabi to cheer for their favorite athletes! The photo wall did not take long to fill up, and was a popular photo spot. The National Smile Team invited visitors in front of Gangneung Station to cheer for athletes with their own voices. No matter what language they speak, everyone felt united in the spirit of the Olympics! Those who participated in the event received official souvenirs of the PyeongChang Olympics. The campaign will be made into a video and posted online to reach out to more people. Welcome to Gangneung! The visitors gave high-fives to the National Smile Team in support of the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games. The welcome campaign left people feeling motivated and energized. Despite the cold weather, our hearts were totally warmed by the campaign. Cheers to the National Smile Team for their hospitality and friendliness. Our efforts to welcome foreigners will continue even after the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games. Please keep your attention on our activities.
