According to a June 16 report by Yonhap News, the Korean Olympic Committee (KOC) announced that their decision to forbid Park Tae Hwan from participating in the 2016 Summer Olympics will stand. 

KOC's director Han Jong Hee reportedly stated, "Our aim in establishing the parameters for selecting the national team's representatives is [for the athletes] to maintain a tall order of morality and a level of dignity as public figures. Using performance enhancing drugs clashes with the very fundamental virtues of a fair play mentality and requires a severe penalty and serves as a way to educate the younger athletes."

The KOC plan to submit their decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). Park Tae Hwan also intends to follow through with arbitration procedures at CAS to dispute KOC's decision. Meanwhile, Park Tae Hwan is currently training in Australia.

Hypocrites! It wasn't his fault and still got banned for years. In the mean time, rapists and murders are given lighter sentences for "reflecting on their actions."

I feel bad for him. He worked hiss ass off, I think it would have been his last time at the olympics, but who knows. too bad he fucked it up

Have to agree with the KOC.

Eh, he's better off not going anyway considering how unsafe Brazil is at the moment. There's a lot of athletes not participating in the 2016 Olympics.

There's not enough time to just suddenly change the committee's minds. Maybe accepting their decision is the best choice. Although I understand his desperation. He's at his peak in terms of age, and four years later he'll be 30.
