Jang Geun-suk's Fashion Intuition As it is ... 

Dong-A 2018-01-25

Long padding - Shawls are desirable, but pants are thin and thermal insulation is weak

Winter boots - should prepare thick socks

One of the biggest worries for the opening ceremony of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics held on February 9th is the cold weather. The PyeongChang Winter Olympic Organizing Committee is in full swing to prepare for the cold weather that may be coming. To prevent winds, we installed a windbreak around the venue. Visitors are provided with 6 kinds of winter goods (poncho, knee blanket, hot pack cushion, hand hot pack, foot hot pack, cold hat) free of charge.

But the most important thing is that each visitor prepares their own measures to cope with the cold.

In 1994 at the Lillehammer in Norway, the opening ceremony was held in a similar environment to PyeongChang  Like Pyeongchang, 35,000 spectators gathered in an open-air stadium without a roof. The organizers of the Lillehammer contest emphasized numerous times in newspapers and broadcasts before the contest, "Prepare hats, scarves, winter boots and winter socks."

The PyeongChang Organizing Committee is also planning to carry out a variety of public relations activities by promoting the actor Jang Geun Suk, part of the public relations team. In the opening and closing ceremony media briefing on the 23rd, "Jang Geun Suk recommendations for the opening and closing ceremony fashion" was introduced.

The fashion of Jang Geun Suk, appearing in the video, has many things to accept and to fix. Protecting your entire body with long down padding is very effective at maintaining body temperature first. It is also a good choice to wear a wide, long shawl that can be wrapped around your neck and face.

But it is not enough. Most important is to protect your hair, hands, and feet. First, the entire head, especially a hat that covers your ears is essential. Avoid ordinary snow or rain-resistant gloves. It is better to wear functional gloves like ski gloves.

With clothing for the lower half of the body, there is a lot to avoid. The ankles should not be exposed to maintain body temperature. Shoes that are now worn are not only slippery but also have low thermal insulation. Wear cold winter boots with warmth and good grip, and wear thick winter socks too. It is also good to prepare spare socks. Also the pants you're now wearing. Cotton trousers are weak against the cold and if you do not dry yourself well [e.g. stay dry], your body temperature my drop sharply

The Pyeongchang Organizing Committee plans to make upgraded promotional videos upgraded around the 31st and provide them to the visitors.
