What I seem to remember most, is the ISU letting it be known that any coach, judge, or skater who joined the WSF would no longer be considered eligible for ISU events. That was the beginning of the end for the WSF, of course. I think the USFS then also said their members could not join the WSF. I remember wondering if the WSF was entitled to sue, at least in the US, on the basis of "restraint of trade" laws, but it seemed to be "game over".
And I'm not talking about 5 Koreans with the last name Kim
Unless there are more skaters of Yuna's caliber, the KSU won't provide large funding for figure skating.
It's all about short track in KSU. Short track is what they know and what they do best.
Unlike figure skating, there will always be a large supply of speed skaters to rise to the top when the best retire.
Right now Yuna is probably supporting the figure skaters of Korea more than the KSU.
If it were completely up to the KSU, they would ignore all of figure skating like they did with Yuna when she was a jr.
Now the KSU is kind of forced to give attention to figure skating because of Yuna's popularity.
