SEOUL (THE KOREA HERALD/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - McDonald's Korea said it will launch PyeongChang Korean beef signature burger on Tuesday (Jan 30), offering 10,000 burgers just for one day.

By using Pyeongchang's specialty Korean beef that goes well with white Cheddar cheese, the burger set will include golden fried potatoes.

McDonald's Korea said those who purchase the burger can enter into a lucky draw to win two tickets to watch the speed skating final event, adding that 150 people will be selected.

The Pyeongchang Winter Olympics will begin in South Korea on Feb 9, featuring 102 events in 15 sports disciplines and athletes from all over the world.

North and South Korea will march together at the opening ceremony while athletes from Russia - hosts of the 2014 Winter Games - will compete under a neutral flag after their team was banned over a doping scandal.
