    News Kim Yu-na's Angels on Ice

    I just read this on my google homepage...

    Kim Yu-na to Skate on Charity Ice Show

    Figure skating wunderkind Kim Yu-na will perform in a charity ice show in Korea.

    IB Sports, her agency, said Thursday that the 18-year-old South Korean would skate in the show, titled ``Kim Yu-na's Angels on Ice,'' on Christmas Day at Mokdong Ice Rink.

    Kim, who triumphed at this year's two Grand Prix series events ― Skate of American and Cup of China ― plans to skate with 10 South Korean figure skating prospects.

    In addition, world bronze medallist Johnny Weir of the United States will pair with Kim.

    All profit from admission fees will go to the charity.

    ``To reward for big support from local fans, I will perform in the charity show,'' Kim said.

    I wonder what Johnny/Yu-Na fans would be called. Because I think they do exist after watching several Youtube montages:

    they certainly seem to be very good friends if not actually a couple.

    I always thought that a nice Korean boy would be better for her. Johnny and Yu-Na seem like polar opposites, personality wise.

    Yep, I would rather see Yuna with a real man like Joubert and Johnny with Evan. Now that's more like it!

    Oh please, Johnny can do so much better than Evan!
    Okay, this thread has officially turned way too silly.

    That’s one of the reasons I like Yu na, So open-minded. I guess she may not even categorize people according to what closed minded people think is " a real man " or not. She is her own person.

    Nice, Yu na has same taste as me.

    Definitely ! What about Tatiana Totmyanina ?

    One of my favorite of Johnny’s quote,

    “ I’m not for everyone .”

    Or did he change his mind about that ?

    Well, here are Yu-na's own words (from a 2007 interview, posted on the Yu-na Kim Forum):

    Interviewer: "Do you have any favorite male figure skaters or celebrities? When would you like to have a boyfriend?

    Yu-na: "Do I have to name all of them? [skaters, celebrities]. These days, I like Johnny Weir. I like Dongbang shingi [a Korean band]. But I don't know when my preferences will change. Maybe I'll have a boyfriend after the [2010] Olympics...I'm not really in a position to have one now. I don't want to focus on that yet. It might interfere with my training."

    Yu-Na's mom: "She's very wholesome."

    So there ya go!

    Oh dear... I really didn't mean to start silly rumors over this. I don't think there are any people who actually believe Johnny and Yu-Na are a couple. Only that they make a nice pair on ice, which is two entirely different things.
