    It'll be awesome if Yu-Na lands a Korean Vogue cover--the styling and conceptualization of Korean Vogue's covers is one of the best of all the international Vogues.
    Yuna has been shot by many Korean fashion magazines, and landed on covers for some. I do remember that she had her spread in Vogue Korea back in 2009, though I do not remember if she was on the cover or not.

    She is reputed between many Korean fashion editors to be a joy to shoot; Yuna understands subtlety, which is most important in photoshoots. Of course, not a professional model, but for non-model population, she is considered a better one.

    I hope she was not forced to do so.

    She said herself that she wanted to retire right after Vancouver. She was basically forced to stay by her federation.
    Here's a translation of an intervuew where she talks about that:

    I think that this video is part of Yuna's duties as YOG Ambassador. I did not read anything else into it.
    That said Yuna is looking fabulous.

    Yes, I think this video is for young skaters who are just beginning to pursue their skating dreams and maybe are entered in the YOG games. Good advice from a seasoned veteran and role model for young skaters. Yuna is really taking her responsibilities as a YOG, Special Olympics, and UN sports ambassador very seriously, she likes working with and helping young athletes (normal and "challenged").

    Sadly, Yuna was clearly pressured to compete. It is sad because her skating spark was gone. She loves Show skating, So Korea will have her a very long time, doing easier programs/no pressure. I hope her fed does not guilt trip her into Sochi. Shades of Midori Ito.

    From her interviews, it appears that Yuna did not want to compete at 2010 and 2011 Worlds, but was pressured to do so. Where the pressure came from is not completely clear IMO. Also from her interviews, Yuna has not retired yet, she is considering her future and may decide to compete again. We'll just have to wait and see.

    Yes, we'll wait and see. She said she would take one season at a time in her decision to compete or not. My guess is she's coming back before Sochi, but it won't be a surprise if that's not the case.

    On December 15th, figure skater Kim Yuna spread some holiday cheer at the St. Mary’s Hospital in Seoul.

    At the pediatric ward, Kim Yuna made a surprise appearance as Santa Claus and handed out gifts to children with incurable illnesses.

    Netizens were touched by Kim Yuna’s actions and commented on how kind and thoughtful she was.

    Check out more photos from the event below:
