Lee Moon-tae has been unveiled as executive artistic director for both the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Paralympics.
But the hunt continues for someone to assume a similar role at the Olympic Games.
Lee, currently President of the Korean Traditional Performing Arts Foundation, will utilise experience he has earned over 30 years of producing and directing entertainment programmes at KBS (Korean Broadcasting System), the largest television broadcaster in the country.
He has also served at the Seoul Society for Rehabilitation of Persons with Disabilities.
This blend of experience in both broadcasting and the impaired was "highly received" by a Selecting Committee comprised of International Consulting Committee members Don Mischer, David Atkins, Konstantin Ernst and Sidney Kimme, it was claimed.
“Mr Lee has a very strong understanding and sensitivity to the special needs and issues of the Paralympics," the panel commented afterwards.
"And he has the ability to use technology and stadium space very well.”
Candidates to perform a similar role at the Olympic ceremonies have also been screened, Organisers revealed, with the initial aim having been to announce the director for each Games at the same time.
But, with none of the applicants having satisfied the wanted requirements, more consideration will now be given to choose the most capable person.
No specific timeframe has yet been given as to when an appointment will be made.
