Tonichelle, I'll try to keep in mind what you say about mushing! I love the idea of it but had no idea it was as rough to watch as that. You have correctly pegged me as a chicken. I'll depend on your reports about the exploits of the mushers and the dogs rather than watching firsthand.
Excuse me, but isn't this thread supposed to be about Yuna? This thread has been hijacked and this debate about Ohno etc. should be moved to some separate thread.
This thread is very long and has been hijacked countless number of times. But I agree, it's time to move on from this topic.
(Yes, because this is a Yuna thread...)

OK so I lied. This will be my final thoughts on this, I promise.
lowtherlore, I don't even know why I have to repeat this but please get this through your head. Nowhere have I said that only Koreans are overly nationalistic. Sorry for not including that in my original but that's such an obvious statement that I didn't feel the need to stick it in there as some sort of disclaimer. And sorry to break it to you, but I am Korean. I just have a different point of view than yours. And I'm hardly the only one. Apparently, we're just not as vocal as you.

I like to hope that someday, we'll be able to bridge such gaps in the world, not forgetting history but rising above it.
Thanks, Tonichelle! I'll cover my eyes when instructed by you. (>giggle<)
My respect for the dogs and the mushers is boundless. I got to edit an article for kids about the original trek to Nome in 1925 with the serum, which inspired the Iditarod, and I still get gooseflesh when I think about those men and their dogs, setting off in temperatures of forty below, in the dark, over hundreds of miles of ice--in January! I know I tend to romanticize things (which is why I'm a skating fan). But this sport deserves to be romanticized. I gather that the mushers tend to live very down-to-earth lives, mostly in out-of-the-way locales in Alaska and Minnesota and such, and they're certainly not in it for the money. It's great to know there's a knowledgeable musher fan in the GS community.

Is Kwangjuyo a brand name of pottery in Korea? Yuna's make up is very different from the other Korean celebrities.
