    Obviously, Jackman has no idea who she is... but he said some nice words:

    I wonder why they asked Hugh about Yuna.. It makes me feel somehow embarrassed. I am sure Yuna also feels like me

    Anyway can't wait to see her comeback next month. Good luck to Yuna

And the fact that it closely coincides with Yuna's debut, is just
    Hugh Jackman already knew about Yuna. It's obvious in the video clip.

    Plus, commenting about Yuna in the press conference was a great opportunity even for Hugh and Cameron Mackintosh to call much more Koreans' attention to Les Misérables. That's because Koreans tend to be very interested in every story involved in Yuna. I think Hugh is much more savvier about media than some people in this thread.

    Thanks for the clip! I can't remember anything he said about Yuna. I was too busy thinking damn, Hugh Jackman is hot.

    Getting amnesia when in the presence of Hugh Jackman is entirely understandable.

    So cool he is in the movie...he should do it justice...so when will we see Yuna in Germany? Jeremy Abbott has a beautiful LP to Les Mis. I hope Yuna is getting in top form...

    Whoa, seriously, that is really savvy, no sarcasm. Now Les Miserables can count on hoards of Korean fans buying DVDs of the film and driving up international sales for virtually no extra advertising money. Niiiice.

    On the contrary, it's obvious that he already knows who Yuna is and the fact she is an oly champion.
    And as he asked when she would compete in the above vid, the female translater apparently did not know the answer.

    He knows how to deal with media, of course but I think he genuinely likes Korea.
    When he first visited Seoul in 2006, he cheered for Korean soccer team at World Cup and even sang a fight song! In 2009, he explained how he got interested in Korea.

    He seems to be a general sports fan and is somewhat familiar with Korea so it's natural to think that he knows some sports stars from Korea.

    Anyway, he can DANCE!

    Hugh Jackman may or may not have known about her. In any case, I think, all this was prepared by the movie company. Perhaps, even the question. Hollywood stars often visit Korea, and they usually say one or two nice things about Korea, of course. This time, it was YuNa.

    This is great. I hope a fan will get a YouTube video of it! ( Knowing Koreans in general -- they will )
