In March, 2018, the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games and Paralympics finished successfully. "There were pessimists who said that the PyeongChang Olympics would never succeed nine months ago," says IOC chairman Thomas Bach. The PyeongChang Olympics started with worries. However, Pyeongchang Olympic Games, attracted 2,920 athletes from 92 nations, who set new records with enthusiasm in front of viewers from all over the world..It was evaluated as having caught both races of the tournament operation and the box office. How can they do this successfully?

Choosing a World Cup or Olympic Host city happens many years before the opening ceremony. During the preparatory process, the Pyeongchang Organizing Committee established several stadiums such as the Gangneung Ice Arena. and on December 22, 2017, the Wonju-Gangneung section of the KTX Kyungkang Line was opened for traffic links between the venues of the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games. The KTX will be able to visit the Olympic Games in the metropolitan area, and foreigners will be able to enjoy the Olympic Games in the vicinity of Seoul where the room is spacious. Based on the Olympics, it will be decided by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) seven years ago and the IOC will make its own decision in accordance with Article 37 (Selection of Host City) of the Olympic Charter. The selection process begins when a country’s Olympic committee submits an application to the International Olympic Committee. Following visits to all the candidate cities by the IOC assessment team. The number of candidate cities is reduced and the remaining cities must submit an application for final acceptance to the IOC six months before the IOC General Assembly. At this time, the final application form contains specific preparation plans for key issues such as funding, stadium, infrastructure, transportation, safety, and hotel, which are the criteria for evaluating the city as a venue. The most important thing is the 'cost'. Countries that have had previous large-scale international events will use relatively little money while reusing their facilities, but countries that are the first to host international events are forced to use astronomical money. IOC Evaluation Visit the candidate city above. After the on-site investigation, the venue will be determined through a ballot of the committee members.

Other exceptional factors may also act on the bid criteria. At the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Game, South Korea won six gold medals, six silver medals and two bronze medals achieving a total of 5th place. The record-setting score and figure skating gold medal for Yu-na Kim raised the necessity of Pyeongchang as the venue. Kim was part of the Koreanndelegation presenting to the IOC for the Pyeongchang games.

The next thing we should pay attention to is facility management after the event. Since the successful hosting of the 1988 Seoul Olympics, The Jamsil Baseball Stadium in the Olympic area in Jamsil is now used as a home ground for the Doosan Bears and the LG Twins. The Jamsil Stadium is used by concerts of various artists, and Jamsil Olympic area is also used as a festival zone.

Recently, differing opinions on post-facility management in Gangwon Province and the government have surfaced. Gangwon-do requires 75% of national expenses and 25% of local expenses, which are burdens of the existing stadium, "The stadium, which was used for the PyeongChang Olympic Games, is still considering using the Olympic heritage as a legacy", a Ministry of Culture and Tourism official said. "We are looking for a reasonable ratio for cost sharing" It is burdening each other because it is burdensome to be covered by the budget of each institution. According to Kangwon Research Institute, there are a total of 13 stadiums built for the Pyeongchang Olympic Games. It is estimated that the budget allocated to this is 895.6 billion won and that the budget for the management of the stadium facilities should be invested about 10.1 billion won every year after the end of the PyeongChang Olympic Games.

There are so many factors to be held and proceeded that large international events will be planned at least ten years in the country where they want to hold. Knowing that the conventions we see are designed and conducted by people from so many places, we will be more immersed in enjoying the contest. It is also our duty to look at how the management of post-facility because our tax is a competition to attract in our country.
