2018 Winter Olympics: What time is it in South Korea?
How does your time zone translate to the Pyeongchang Games? We've got you covered
If you've read anything about the, you've probably noticed that certain days and events don't seem to match up. It's not because you're crazy. It's because this year's Winter Games are being held in Pyeongchang, South Korea, where the time zone is a whole 14 hours ahead of the East Coast.
If you've come looking for an end to your confusion and some tips on how to translate the time, you've come to the right place.
First thing's first: Pyeongchang falls in the Korea Standard Time zone (UTC+0:900), which means, again, that there is a 14-hour difference between local time and Eastern Standard Time in the United States.
Now here are all the time differences for all time zones across the United States:
Eastern time: 14 hours
Central time: 15 hours
Mountain time: 16 hours
Pacific time: 17 hours
Pyeongchang time is also ahead of all those time zones, so if NBC is broadcasting live at 8 p.m. ET, that means it is actually 10 a.m. the following day in Pyeongchang. An event broadcast live at 8 a.m. ET, meanwhile, would actually be a 10 p.m. event in South Korea.
