    Thanks for the info! It will be a great show, WOW. I absolutely love this number:

    06. Stephane Lambiel ‥‥‥‥‥‥‥ Ne me quitte pas

    He is so wonderful in interpreting this music (ALL music), putting the feeling into his skating and drawing the audience into his performance.

    I would chalk it up to misinformation most likely.

    The duo is probably a part of closing of Part 1, not a full program. It was like that when Yu-Na skated with Johnny and Stephane.

    Here is Yu-Na's arrival interview at the airport (August, 11)


    Yu-Na Kim training in Toronto, Canada came back to Korea to take part in Samsung HAUZEN ICE ALL STARS 2009 since she left for Canada about 3 months ago.

    With Brian Orser and David Wilson, Yu-Na wearing white T-shirts and short pants showed up in an airport and lots of fans and reporters waited from the midnight to dawn took photographs with a blare of flash-light.
    Being little bit tired, Yu-Na answered questions with delight and told how well she practice for the upcoming Olympic till now.

    Q: Please, let us know what your new programs are.
    A: Short first? Little bit excited(laugh). For the 2009-2010 season, “James Bond theme” of 007 Series for a short program and “Concerto In F” composed by George Gershwin for a Free Skating.

    Q: There are lots of 007 series… what exactly the theme music is ?
    A: Wilson decided after he listened to the whole theme music. “The Spy Who Loved Me(1977)” ? I am not sure what exactly the name of the series were..

    (It was known as a medley relay arranged with “The Name’s Bond, James Bond”', “Dr. NO(1962)”, “From Russia with Love (1963)” , “Thunderball (1965)” and “Die Another Day(2002)”).

    Q: Did you feel the music is a perfect fit for the Olympics?
    A: When I heard it first, I wondered.. But now I love it as much as I keep it in my MP3 Player hearing from time to time. As for Free skating, I selected somewhat storytelling music for a while. But, this time The music by George Gershwin is just classical.

    Q: Compared with programs of last season, do you like them?
    A: At every season, I exercised really hard to prepare both short and long program as much as I can. Last season they were so much loved and it’s a bit pressure to me.
    Though I am under the apprehension that both programs of this season are less gorgeous than those of last season, I will prepare them well and do my best as I have done before.

    Q: How was the training?
    A: I took an enough rest in Korea and left for Canada to train. I was in good shape there and trained well.

    Q: I heard that you will change the first Combination Jump.
    A: Because the flip jump received a cut in marks, I couldn’t get enough points for the next combination jumps. Because it is not difficult for me to do 3 Toe after any triple jump, coaches, staffs and I made a decision together.
    I didn’t care about the attention mark on the Flip jump at first, but changed mind.

    Q: What do you think about skating with MK and other skaters on the IAS 2009.
    A: I performed Ice shows several times in Korea but this time there are so many great skaters and it makes me tensed. I will enjoy it as before and wish all skaters could have good reminders.

    Q: What do you feel about the coming new season?
    A: Skaters must agitate themselves because it’s Olympic season.
    But I will do my best at every competition and will not be agitated over it.

    Q: Why do you leave for Canada right after the Show?
    A: To continue my practice I minimize staying in Korea and leave for Canada on Aug, 17.

    Translated hard, does it make sense?

    MK arrived.

    Welcome to Korea

    Delayed about 20 minutes but Michelle Kwan arrived at 18:50 (01:50 Pacific time).

    Here in Korea, It rains cats and dogs.
    By the weather forecast, it will stop late afternoon tomorrow.

    News article in Korean

    Kween said:

    "I talked over the telephone with David Wilson, choreographer of Yu-Na Kim.
    Wilson recommended me to take part in ICE ALL STARS 2009 and I opened to the idea because it would be a good experience for me."

    "I traveled lots of countries but this is my first time to visit in Korea and I am filled with emotion that I will be back on the ice at the newly visiting country. I will do my best with the skaters to give great performance to the audience."

    But interview from SBS TV

    Kween said:

    I know it from David Wilson who choreographed for Yu-Na told me "Michelle you have to come to Korea, you have to, telling me you have to come like..
    "OK, I will try to come! OK, I will try to come!"

    I would enjoy it but

    But I would not want to see that drunken murderer skating. I think you all know who I mean. I feel he did not truly pay for his horrible crime.

    'Mondschein' means Moonlight.

    I thought this was an interesting quote:

    (Last season's programs) were so much loved and it’s a bit pressure to me (to match them.)

    Though I am under the apprehension that both programs of this season are less gorgeous than those of last season, I will prepare them well and do my best as I have done before.

    Hm.. I've read it in Korean news article, and that Q/A was a bit different. My interpretation were more like this.

    Q: Last season's programs were so popular. Did it make difficult for making this year's program?

    A: Yes, it's true and it's been a bit of pressure. Some might still prefer last year's program, but I wanted the best program and I'm satisfied [ with my choice ] .

    Maybe source reported it a bit differently? but the gist was like that to me. And thanks to dkyoun for all the nice articles!
