The committee said, "We heard about Yonghwa and had discussions internally. The Olympics are soon and we believed that dismissing an ambassador will have an effect on the games. Instead of dismissing him, we have decided he will no longer have activities as an ambassador. Yonghwa will not be present at the opening ceremonies, or at any other event."
However, Yonghwa's videos and image which were already recorded will remain on the site. The committee said, "We don't have a reason to delete it. He is still an ambassador, so we believe that there are no problems displaying the video. However, the situation is probably different for broadcast."
