I tweaked the video a bit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=9OJ4WXBRs2Y
Definitely one of the best comebacks in figure skating, and it's not even over yet.
This woman is beyond compare. Aren't we lucky that she decided to show up again?
Interesting how her sp skate fitted so well to les mis. I think David will have a tough time coming up with the better of the Vancouver programs. Her 2013 skating was so good. Yuna can't lose if she goes clean like this. Speed plus jumps. I like her Sp costume more now. I wish they had gone with more color, more of a true period style costume with less sequins/glitter to keep with the character, tho for her LP. I'm very picky re this amazing stage musical (movie was tough0sad really) I love Les Mis -the music, the original book, everything about it is the best thing I have seen on stage, so I'm picky. I envisioned a white or beige top, maybe a navy bodice that laced in front or back, and a mauve colored skirt-much plainer than sequins, but that's figure skating. Gotta have glitz these days.
I really wonder if we will see a serious YuNa next year, or if there will be a light sexy piece where she uses her charm and smiles? Bond and Gershwin brought out her lighter side and her flirtatiousness-it connected well with audience. Wilson is a genius-he knows not to finagle with what works so I don't expect any great departures, but they make it sound "very different." I hate that we have to wait to September-cruel to her fans!!!!
Wonderful video. I'd add the step sequence of her SP at Worlds. That was insane.
Happy 23rd birthday, Yu-Na! There's about 3 hours left to go before her actual birthday, but still...
She attended an event today, which was a chance to meet her fans for a last time before Sochi.
At the last part of event, they showed a video which consisted of supportive&encouraging messages from her coaches&other Korean figure skaters. She cried at the end when they showed a message from her coaches, Jong-Hyun Ryu and Hea-Sook Shin.
Few words from Jong-Hyun Ryu(translated):
She(Yu-Na) is like a daughter to my life. I feel sorry that you(Yu-Na) have to train on your birthday, but let's achieve our goal.
Happy birthday, YuNa! And what a lovely thing for Ryu to say.
