Pyeongchang, South Korea will become the third Asian city to host the Winter Games. The Winter Games were previously held at two Japanese cities: Sapporo in 1968 and Nagano in 1998.

Which leads to an important question: How do you pronounce Pyeongchang?

It's simple : Pyeongchang -- pyahng-chang but it's more like pyuhng-chahng -- but make an effort to NOT overemphasize the ch sound please.
