    News Yu-Na to skate at NRW Trophy, Dortmund

    News article (in Korean): Yu-Na Kim to stage a comeback at NRW Trophy

    It'll be her first competitive skate in 20 months. NRW dates (5-9 Dec) overlap with GPF's. Who else are skating at NRW this year? Lysacek?

    Nothing much in the article other than what the title says. Some excerpts: She will premier her two new programs to the themes of the film Kiss of the Vampire and the musical Les Miserables; She is filing an entry to Golden Spin of Zagreb too, as an alternate schedule.

    I was thinking of going to NRW Trophy depending on who is there, so now I'm definitely going. Yes!

    I wonder what is really going on with Yuna? If she was really serious about skating and being in Sochi she would do more then one event a year. I don't care how good she is she needs to compete or she will be like Worlds 2011 where she was rusty. I just get the feeling that she's doing this to make sure South Korea as two spots for Sochi and that's it.

    I think so, too. But who knows, if Yuna starts winning again, maybe the competitive fire she(and we all) thought has all gone might come alive. For now earning Korea's two spots in Olympics seems about it.

    No female skater perform like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KB7rccqcSzg&feature=plcp
    Her technic is the best...all she needs is the stamina to perform rigorously 4 minutes.

    Yuna was unlucky 2011 Worlds...injured during SP...ice is slippery...
    Yuna was also was robbed by judges who were angry with her for not partipating Grand Prix competitions.
    Judges gave her unacceptable PCS scores.

    I don't like her choice of programs. Les Miserables won't do her any favor. It needs to be skated with warmth and inspiration, but cold skaters like her won't be able to pull it off. On the other hand, Vampire sounds like something well suited to her.
