Many of them are frequent visitors but except Mao, this will be their first visit to Korea this year.
About Hyundai participants 2006-2009.
. 2006 : Plushenko, Yagudin, Slutskaya, Baiul, Yuna Kim, Mam Nari, Ice dancing 2 teams
. 2007 : canceled
. 2008 : Plushenko, Yagudin, Lambiel, Buttle, Lysacek, Asada, Ando, Cohen, B/A and other team(sorry), P/T
. 2009 : Plushenko, Yagudin, Buttle, Lysacek, Verner, Cohen, Meier, Rochette, Kerr/Kerr, P/T
Yagudin and Rippon were just added to the line-up.
Now, the casting looks like,
Men : Plushenko, Yagudin, Buttle, Lysacek, Rippon, Lambiel (?,not sure)
Ladies : Asada, Ando, Rochette
Pairs : Shen/Zhao, Pang/Tong
Ice Dancing : Virtue/Moir
I read the Korean Times about the ticket prices ranging from 30,000 won to 130,000 won!!! HAH! Seriously? I would love to watch the top skaters in the world in flesh...but 30,000 won to 130,000 won????

Festa On Ice was from 40,000 won to 198,000 won, and the expensive seats literally sold out in minutes (all to see Yuna). This show, while it has world's top skaters (without Yuna), is actually cheaper than FOI, and many people will actually be getting free tickets from Hyundai Card to attend.
Super Match (Hyundai Card) : 26 ~ 116 USD
I know this is OT but you can feel the general atmosphere and audience response of ice shows held in Korea here.
Jeremy at FOI in 2009, his first ice show in a foreign country. How relaxed and animated he looks!
According to his mom,(http://ontheedgeofskating.blogspot.c...ing-dream.html)
Shame he did not medal at olys. If he had done, he would be invited to this Super Match show.The first Grand Prix and National titles didn't put our skater on anyone's radar, except Yu na Kim and thank goodness for that! Learning to do a show in front of thousands of screaming and adoring fans was at first overwhelming; after that it was addicting. Fans in Asia are like no others in the world. What an absolute treat the experience was on so many levels.
They announced the program! I am thrilled.

Great! I heard that Lambiel might not participate but it seems that he will come.(He is now practicing his new gala. Hoped he would show some but anyway.)
Winter and Bond by Yagudin? What is Bond?
And Turandot! Wish all the skaters be in shape and perform great!!!!
* Sorry mods, would you change the title of this thread to 'Hyundai Super Match Ice Show, June 5th and 6th'?

At first I thought that Yag will skate the Yuna program AND with her dress on!
Yag will skate winter? Wow the arena will be brought down, I wish I could see this program live just once.
