- Yoo Jeong-bok, Mayor of Incheon
From September 19 to October 4, 4.5 billion people throughout Asia will turn their attention to Incheon (and 9 nearby cities) where the 2014 Asian Games will be held.
With all 45 member nations of the Olympic Council of Asia attending, 1,300 athletes will compete in 36 categories for 439 gold medals.
Since 2007 when it was chosen as the host city, Incheon has been running the 'OCA-Incheon Vision 2014' program to lead a movement for the balanced development of sports in Asia.
With 30 years of experience, Yoo Jeong-bok has been involved in every area from working level details to policy decisions. Since passing the civil service examination at 22, he became the youngest county governor at 36 and served as minister twice. After being known as the 'master of bureaucracy,' he is now standing at the forefront of making Incheon a global city as the leader of 3 million citizens.
This week on [Heart to Heart], we talk to Mayor Yoo Jeong-bok of Incheon about the 2014 Asian Games and the city as a hub of Asia.
