    She is elegant, good jump techniques, a joy to watch. If she develops well she can do big things. But there is one thing... I don't know how to say it, but I feel like she hasn't gotten a distinctive character yet. At the moment she is Yuna-like. There is nothing bad about that, but I hope she will be more of a character for herself.

    I love the serenity and security in her skating. The British Eurosport commentators noted her strong jumping technique; all her jumps are so clean. Has great potential to medal at Pyeongchang.

    Watched her performance in Saitami, and she looked junior-ish. One thing: I am now convinced that there must be the world's best jumping coach in Korea. I've always wondered where the heck Yuna learned all those correct techniques, when Korea had next to no presence in the skating world. Looking at So Youn, now I think there has got to be someone in Korea who knows how to teach jumps. So Youn's jumps are not Yuna's quality but the techniques are textbook.

    This mystery coach should get a huge credit. I've seen so many women skaters trying to fix, with mixed results, incorrect jumping techniques acquired young. Korean skaters are blessed to have this coach.

    ^ I was going to say the same thing! Who is this mystery jumping coach? Is she/he working with the other baby korean skaters? Like for instance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hn-mDkEEjVk Now my other question is: does the coach know how to teach the right techniques of a textbook triple axel as well? Yu-Na's double axels are pretty awesome but I wonder if the coach could've helped her more......

    That kid is adorable! And wow, that he has a 2A-3T and 3Z!

    I believe that Korea's issue was never technique but rather a lack of ice time.

    Anyway count me impressed with So Youn. I disagree with some who think she is juniorish. I actually think she has a sense of maturity in her skating and I like that she doesn't rush in and out of her moves.

    She is my new favorite! She definitely needs to improve on certain areas, but I really was amazed by her skate at Worlds 2014. Her layout was very similar to Akiko's National skating, and I must say, if Akiko received 144 (even though it's nationals), it wouldn't be too long until we see another Korean skater scoring 130+ or even 140+!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8U-t...NcR7_zVKCfOM3Q -- FS (in HD!)

    I agree it was a lovely program!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1w0nO5rP2c this is from her SP from Nationals, I think this is the one you're thinking of.

    Don't hate me for saying this but IMO if she wants to do 3F-3T or 3Lz-3T, she needs to 1) lose weight, or 2) need some serious power training for leg muscles. Her chest is kinda big for her height and she needs lots of speed to land any kind of combo as it is. Compare her combos with, say, Yulia's. Yulia with no flow and mule kicks can eek out 3T combos because she is so small and her chest doesn't get in the way of rotation. I definitely prefer Park's textbook style (who knows what will happen to Yulia in the next few years), but nevertheless Park's 2nd/3rd jumps in combos are tiny because that chest puts quite a bit more stress on her legs when landing.

    Example:

    Check out her 2nd Lutz combo (3Lz-2T-2Lo) in realtime -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...PxN68vrU#t=169
    Slo-mo -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...PxN68vrU#t=340

    Her TES was fine in WC 2014 and may even be enough in 2018 if Korea does Sochi , but 3-3 has become a staple of top flight contenders and she will need one other than 3T-3T.

    Couldn't agree more...She was indeed one of the most beautiful surprises at this Worlds. I saw her in Sochi also,but at that time I wasn't able to have a clear opinion about her But now I know exactly that I'll watch her more carefully . And I also believe she could medal at the 2018 Olympics

    And of course,she is very beautiful and surly doesn't need to lose weight

    I don't know how much weight affect women on their jumps. But if we talk about the jumps, then men should be heavier than women, right? If that is the case then she doesn't need to lose weight. I heard some girls have to put on weight so they can jump better.
