Hankyung, Beijing Olympics torchbearer


Super Junior’s Chinese member Hankyung is going to be one of the torchbearers of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. He will be participating in the torch relay that will start on August 6. The Beijing Olympics will be opened on August 8.

According to the Beijing Olympics Organizing Committee, it recognizes Hankyung’s contribution to the cultural exchange between Korea and China and finally made him as a Beijing Olympics torchbearer. Chinese Netizens also think that Hankyung deserves to be a torchbearer because he is on top of Coca Cola‘s poll in selecting torchbearers. Coca Cola is one of Beijing Olympics’ official sponsors.

Hankyung will be attending a torchbearer oath taking ceremony on the 24th at 5 pm in Shenzhen, China, which will be recorded and broadcast through CCTV-5 and Guandong TV.

“I’m very happy and honored to be selected as a Beijing Olympic torchbearer. I owe fans their love and support. In the future, I’ll be presenting a better Hankyung,” Hankyung said.
