    Thanks for the update. Wouldn't it deserve a separate thread?

    Hmmmm ... I don't know whether ATS Summer cast deserves a separate thread, l'etoile.

    But I will make a reference to it in the "ice shows" thread.

    Am trying to follow the GS guidelines against cross-posting.

    Yuna Kim’s Program for Ice Show in August – ‘El Tango de Roxanne’

    Yuna Kim said “I know that there are many people who love ‘El Tango de Roxanne’ and added, “After announcing my challenge for the 2014 Sochi Olympics, I chose my senior debut program ‘El Tango de Roxanne’ with the intention of starting again from the start having a new goal. Yuna Kim said “It will be very appreciating if the fans enjoy the show and encourage me in the situation of starting again.”

    Love love love this

    She mentioned on her biography journal (yes available in Chinese now) that the secret to this program involves her facial expression that she described as a 'rotten smile' which consist of 70% smile and 30% intense stare. This makes me laugh. so precise yet totally works! :P

    Looking back it is hard to imagine this was a girl who went to the hospital for 3 months every day to get her back back injury sorted. Having acupuncture, painkillers, bandages the whole works. Beside hardly practiced, her stamina were clearly an issue as shown on her Lark Ascending, but this short program performance was really something magical. Yuna mentioned she became so inspired watching the mens just nights before, in particularly Jeff Buttle's short, and Stephane Lambiel's Long , she suddenly couldn't wait to get back on the ice despite everything. Nice inspiration indeed, thanks guys!!

    In her biography, she confessed she was not able to completed a full run through for her SP or LP and felt painful and tired even during 6 minutes warm up. Yet something took over the moment the music started and that when she cleaned her first jump, then second, particularly the Lutz, her mood completed changed and it showed up in her performance and then the crowd responded. She was ecstatic and happy by the end of it and couldn't believe it went as well as it did, being their first competition together with Brian Orser especially didn't want to let him down.

    A well known Chinese skating critic described the program as the best SP program he has ever seen at the time, because of the well rounded use of the ice coverage in good balance, in particularly positioning of the elements locations, the unusual and thoughtful set up of the transitions, entry and exit of the jumps. It is a very well designed choreographed program. I am curious what the resident experts think of it purely as a choreograph program, a top 10 of all time? I am far from an expert on this, but it does add layers of thought every time i watch this performance and noticed things I haven't before.

    By the way, nice to see Yuna bring so much advertisement revenue to Golden Skate.
    171 pages, and 345,747 views so far, got to be a record consider she has been absent for a while. Come on Patrick Chan (& SF), you've got alot of catching up to do

    ^^^ Love, love, love your comments.

    She took that pain, and ran her blade right across it (beautifully, I might add), letting it bleed and die for that night, and giving herself life again. She looked light, sassy, and effortless, yet we know she worked her butt off just trying to diminish the pain. Pain be damned, you.
