President Moon Jae-in is promoting the Pyeongchang Olympics, purchasing his own tickets for the country’s first-ever Winter Games to be held in Gangwon Province in February.

Moon posted a photo of himself on his Facebook page buying the tickets using his computer in the presidential office Tuesday afternoon, soon after the Olympics organizing committee began the second round of online ticket sales on the official Web site www.pyeongchang2018.com.

Under the photo, the president posted the caption "seeking much public expectation and interests in the Winter Games."

The presidential office said Moon purchased tickets for a figure skating event.
