spark67, Just becuase I do not appreciate your favorite skater as much as you do, you decide to call me childish. I have a right to write my own opinion. How do you know that I have not know Yuna personally????? You do not know anything about me. I do not have to elaborate on how I found Yua seems a bit arrogant (which she was not before. Of course the fame changes the people...). I can write whatever I feel here.
1. I feel Yuna does not deserve this much of hypes considering her spins, spirals(especially edge change) ,footworks were not that great.
2. I do not appreciate her music and dresses as much as last year. I feel they are too plain.
3.Her Lutz and 3/3 combinations are the best in the world.
Is it a big problem???????

Yeah...Again & Again... Yuna's score is too high~~ blah blah~
Her Spiral is worse 0-point O~~~~~~bviouly...
But other girls lie down on the ice and take a rest while she is jumping.
yeah...That is Yu-na's sin too.
You guys all want Yuna retire. Maybe next year she...
IMO, She is just destroying an ecosystem. She is 'Axis of Evil' for ISU and Great figure fans.
Another way of looking at it. Based on your perception, Yu-Na Kim is arrogant. However, because you decline to explain your reasons, we have no basis to accept your argument except our own perception, via her comments to the media, demeanour at competitions, etc.
Someone here finds your childish, because their perception of you is based on your comments on this website. How is that any different?
Where did you get the impression that Yuna's arrogant?
I agree that she's not exactly a type of person who always smiles in front of the media and all, and that could come off as being aloof and reserved. But maybe you don't really know about Yuna and what she's been through?
I read from an article that Yuna's novice/junior years were quite painful. She had to skate with injuries and not-the-best environment for a figure skater in Korea, not to mention that her family went through difficulties financially supporting Yuna's career.
Brian Orser also mentioned at his interview that Yuna was really shy when she first went to Canada to be Orser's pupil, and that she wouldnt smile often. Yuna's previous coach in fact called Orser and told him to make Yuna a "happy skater." I'm sure I've read it somewhere between Yuna and Orser's interviews b/c Orser said he still remembers that his predecessor asked him to make Yuna a happy skater.
But I'm sure as everyone can see, Yuna nowadays seems much happier and brighter.
Don't talk about how she is and what she's like when you dont even know her! That's plain ugly

You may think you're doing Yu-Na a favour, but think again.....
And please, just because someone thinks Yu-Na's PCS is too high or her spirals aren't the best doesn't mean that they are a hater or a Mao-uber.
^ ITA. I'd say something else in relation to this but I won't.
Incidentally, please note that I ASKED you whether you knew Yuna personally - I NEVER ASSUMED you didn't nor did I state it as a fact. However, if you're going to state that someone is arrogant, shouldn't you explain why she is? Even if it is only your opinion, you should validate your comments. Just because we have the freedom to express our opinions, it doesn't mean we shouldn't take responsibilty for them. If you feel that Yuna is "arrogant" off the ice, then you should state the reason why you feel that way. Otherwise, it's mere slander - because there's no basis or reason for the accusation. I find it ironic that you STILL don't clarify in your latest statement whether you DO know her personally or not and the reason you find Yuna "arrogant". Rather, it seems that you prefer to argue the point about whether I think that you know Yuna personally or not. I find it very difficult to believe that she would offend anyone willingly or knowingly. Regardless, it's moot point unless YOU prefer to elucidate.
Regarding your point #1: I respect your opinion on this. It doesn't mean I have to agree, but it's all cool. It would be interesting, however, for you to state which female skater, in your opinion, has all of these great elements. Maybe I'm missing out on some great performances that I should be watching out for.
Your point #2: Same statement as point #1 above.
Your point #3: I agree.
After watching Yuna's TEB performance on Youtube, I'm seriously contemplating going to Lake Placid. That was something.
But then it's Thanksgiving...traveling two weeks in a row would be ugh..
Anyways, very well done Yuna!
