South Korea or Russia. S Korea is fast developing into a top tier economy, the kind of perfect location for the IOC - an Olympics would boost the nations profile, economy while also showing the 'inclusive' side of the International in the I.O.C. -(read: Western or rich for so many times before), and boosting civil liberties too. Russia would be good candidate too if it sorts out its corruption.

The Olympics have never been in two of the continents represented by the FIVE rings. In all its years its only been in Asia twice, Tokyo 1964 and Nagano 1998.
