Under the name “Reply 50 million,” referring to the South Korean population, the company will work with the committee to collect messages of encouragement from citizens around the country to be delivered to the participating athletes, who will also send out responses in a two-way exchange.

“As a global Olympic partner that has carried out campaigns for the past five games, the significance of PyeongChang 2018 is even more special as it is being held here,” said Kim Joo-youn, general manager of P&G Korea, noting the company’s campaign will help connect the players with the public.
