Eh....I was really enjoying the reports on the gala when I saw this. China is very open and liberal about these things nowadays. And it's always been a pretty good country when it comes to gender equality. I don't think anybody below the age of 70 minded. Most Chinese people love their story and were probably really happy for them.

Agreed. This is a non-issue in China. Everyone knows their story, and at any rate, they are a married couple. But I doubt the kissing would have mattered even if they weren't married.

My phone autocorrects "Yuna" to "Tuna" (Sorry!)
With the end of the gala yesterday and the Closing Ceremony today, I'm a bit sad that the Olympics are over, even with NBC's crappy coverage and all ...

To be honest, I was not very impressed with Yuna's choreography. It was probably because I didn't like her music at all from the beginning (I rather preferred Mao's LP music). And when I watched the clip, I realized the importance of the interpretation. The music was no longer heavy and depressive.

I think she wanted to show that she could also interpret non-fairy music, but i guess she'll still have to stick to light/joyful/elegant music. That's the music she expresses very well and that's the music many people (including me) want to see her skating to.

Was that supposed to happen? I was confused.

I was so excited to watch the Exibition Gala and so very disappointed when I did not get to see some skaters, especially, Shen and Zhao! The GOLD MEDAL winners and NBC did not see the need to show them. I do not understand what could have been going through their minds! We even had to watch delayed viewing some of the
I read above that they saw the Gala on MSNBC the next day. They could have at least told us when and where it would be available for us to view.
Does anyone have a link or any info where me might find these performances.

Try this link. It worked for me a few days ago. It was great to see the Gala from start to finish.
