SEOUL, Aug. 29 (Yonhap) -- Key news agencies of South Korea, China and Japan will hold a joint photo exhibition in Seoul next month, the first in a series of exhibits aimed at promoting scheduled Olympics in Northeast Asia, according to Korea's Yonhap News Agency on Tuesday.

The three-nation media exhibition by Yonhap News, China's Xinhua News Agency and Japan's Kyodo News will open at the National Museum of Korean Contemporary History in Seoul next Tuesday and run through Nov. 30, according to Yonhap News.

The event was arranged to wish for the successful hosting of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics in South Korea and will feature 110 photos from areas ranging from politics to sports.

The exhibit "aims to take a look at the sports, history, culture and nature of South Korea, China and Japan through news photography from Yonhap News Agency, Xinhua News Agency and Kyodo News, and serve as a greeting for the PyeongChang Winter Olympics," Yonhap News said.

The exhibits were first proposed by Yonhap News in a bid to promote the Olympics and boost the ties of three media companies. Park No-hwang, Yonhap News CEO and president, visited Xinhua News Agency in Beijing and Kyodo News in Tokyo last month and signed agreements for the serial exhibitions.

The second joint exhibition will be held in Tokyo in 2019, while the third edition will be arranged by Xinhua in 2021 in Beijing, ahead of the 2020 Summer Olympics and the 2022 Winter Games scheduled in the Japanese and Chinese capitals, respectively.
