The appointment ceremony was attended by Kang Un-tae, chairman of GUOC and Mayor of Gwangju City, Kim Yoon-suk, Secretary-General of GUOC, and other related officials.

Suzy was chosen as a promotional ambassador for the Gwangju Universiade because her young, healthy, and vibrant image was in line with the vision of youth and enthusiasm that Gwangju Universiade seeks to achieve. As a promotional ambassador, Suzy will be doing her part by participating in promotional videos, posters, photos, and other various events to promote the Gwangju Universiade.
