Oh, how lovely.
[sorry; I meant to quote this post about YuNa]
[quote from Nadia01] My understanding is that usually Nats are held in Taereung, which is not a big rink IIRC.
This was the rink that they used in 2006 Nats in Korea before Yuna became the household name that she is now.
Can you imagine being in that audience that day and realizing what it was you were seeing, and thinking of the future....

But it's incredible how little attention she received until she set the world record SP score at WC in Tokyo. When she was either at the end of her jr career or just started her sr career, a Korean clothing company marketing guy thought she might be a good young athlete to sponsor, but the company (which was unnamed in some article I read YEARS ago about corporate sponsorship for Korean female athletes) top executives thought Yuna wasn't "cool" enough for their brand. Of course, by the time Yuna was "cool enough" she was too expensive for them.
Isn't All that skates (the company in charge of the tickets) the company that yuna's mother owns?
