With the '2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics' finally here, all eyes were fixed (or should I say ears) as trendy K-Pop music rang throughout the grand facility.
It was a grand moment for avid K-Pop fans around the world as they were proud and delighted to listen to some of their favorite songs from their favorite artists.
Hit tracks including Psy's "Gangnam Style", TWICE's "Likey", Big Bang's "Fantastic Baby", BTS' "DNA" and Red Velvet's "Red Flavor" were played as athletes from around the world walked with pride and dignity, waving at the spectators. Figure Skater Kim Yuna also took the spotlight by lighting up the magnificent cauldron.
The opening ceremony was an emotional and historical event for many Koreans, marking 30 years since South Korea hosted the Summer Olympics back in 1988.
Decorated with flashy LED lights, fiery explosions, catchy K-pop music, and elaborate performances, the opening ceremony at this year's 23rd winter games is set to become another legendary memory.
EXO and CL will be presenting performances at the closing ceremony.
What was your favorite highlight of the evening?
