The sport of curling has received a lot of attention since the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Korea is preparing to build their first Curling Rink. The rink is expected to be in Uijeongbu City in Gyeonggi Province. The provincial and municipal governments hope to establish the rink in hope of helping the Olympic team prepare for the Pyeongchang Winter Games in 2018, while also boosting the sport's growth here.
At present there are two rinks currently being used by Korean curlers, but neither is of regulation size. With the recent success of the Korean women's curling team, the sport is gaining more attention and support.
