Hmm I can't say I'm a big fan of her music choices for this season, but I'm sure she'll use them well.
I am surprised! I'm delighted to see that the best lady skater has chosen unusual music ( especially for her SP). This might encourage other lady skaters to try and be creative, just like the guys, rather than stick to the usual stuff.
I'll try defying gravity, you can't pull me down
Add another person to the surprised bandwagon!
This may explain why her team didn't reveal the music choices earlier. They may have expected a lot of people will be surprised, and would doubt their music selection.
I am pleasantly surprised and can't wait to see the programs. I find the SP choice especially intriguing - 007 Medley. There are so many possibilities: For Your Eyes Only, Live and Let Die, Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever, A View To A Kill, Goldeneye are the first that come to my mind.
Concerto in F is a great - we haven't seen Yu-Na skate to this style of music and I can't wait to see her skate to it.
When Debi Thomas did it as a pro, she kept taking off more clothes to reveal different aspects of her spy personality, but obviously that wouldn't work in competition.

I like the SP and LP music choices
The costume for SP should not necessarily be pants, IMO. I prefer a dress.
daring, refreshing, and brilliant choices!
David Wilson says about Yu-Na's programs
Yu-Na's image in the short program will be dangerous and mysterious Bond girl
Her LP will show her growth. 3 years ago when I met her, she was a shy girl, and now she has become a world star. Her LP will reflect Yu-Na's life as a skater and as a human.
LP becomes dynamical as it progresses. Unlike Miss Saigon with only one theme, the whole progress was reflected in the long program. For Yu-Na, this is the chance to say "This is Yu-Na Kim". This may be used for the Olympics.

Yuna Kim's 007 Teaser Trailer
A fan of Yu-Na made a montage on 007 during the night...
What a fan...
Great choices Yu Na, very different for the SP, this is what we need I am really disappointed with the other skaters that are going to use the same old/same old music, there is so much choice out there, they should not be scared of the judges (and what music suits them).
Have to say though the concerto in F has been used by Emily Hughes and Susanna Poykio in the past, have to say also that Susanna Poykio used it really well so Yu Na has a lot to live up to choreographically, but Yu Na is unique.
Wow that's surprising. Especially the SP, never seen a lady skate to Bond. Can't wait the TEB. Is Ando and Rochett reveal their programs yet??
"She can dodge fast bullets well." What a fan!

Joannie's short is a tango piece and her long is Samson and Delilah

I can totally see Yu na as a Bond girl (the kick-booty femme fatale kind, not the ones that end up kicking the bucket in some tragic freak accident/murder etc. etc.)
