The main city in South Korea hosting the Winter Olympics is Pyeongchang, but for one media outlet that hails from Chicago, there was a little mix-up recently. What’s wrong with this picture?

There are mistakes, and then there’s this from WLS in Chicago. pic.twitter.com/uP1tSJwNpQ

Missed it by THAT much.
From the Chicago Tribune:
PyeongChang and P.F. Chang’s are not the same thing, and beyond the fact that they both begin with the letter P and end in “Chang,” they have little in common.
This distinction, however, appears to have eluded WLS-Ch.7’s news team, which on Saturday morning accidentally broadcast a report about the political backdrop to the Winter Olympics, illustrated with the graphic, “P.F. Chang 2018.”

One thing’s for sure, the WLS goof has increased appetites:
