I wouldn't be surprised if the reasons she went back to them were chiefly out of fondness and "closing the circle" of her competitive career. I hope DW is in attendance for her at Sochi.
    From what I hear, her coaches Shin and Ryu are damned good coaches, very rigorous and exacting. If they could speak good English, I would say that non-Koreans should consider going to them, even as a kind of module, for fundamentally sound technical training, jumps in particular.

    EDIT: OTOH, I have been made to understand that the ice facilities in Korea actually kinda suck, so...

The choreography is filled with assymetrical movements, which will need huge stamina to pull it off with intended nuances till the end. Yuna and David Wilson again went with an ambitious concept for the Olympic season.

    Ice facilities for figure skating in Korea is pretty pathetic at best. Even to this day, Yuna has been practicing on the hockey rink where ice itself is much harder than ideal figure ice.

    They are really excellent coaches, especially on jumps and skating skills. I think they also helped Yuna quite a bit after she took that year long break. I felt that at NRW 2012, Yuna's jumps were not as great as they had been before, but by Worlds the jumps looked wonderful. And I think her jumps look even better than they did at Worlds (more distance it seems)!

    So it doesn't make sense.


    Mao and Yuna have always been classy. The fans are a completely different story, depending.

    Not really feeling it so far, but it's only a practice video. Going to reserve real judgment until the actual program--but it is a DW-YK partnership so I suppose I'll like it all the same. Soaring jumps at 80-90% though. WHOA.
    What does Rudy Galindo have anything to do with my previous comment? I haven't seen any Rudy Galindo video, only Yuna's runthroughs. I was talking about the media paying attention to Yuna Kim versus the GPF.

    And I also commented on how classy Yuna's remarks were regarding Mao. Why bring the fans into it? I know how some of them act too. I don't need you pointing it out to me. That to me was irrelevant to Yuna's gracious comments.

    Hey, you're the one who quoted me. I was just answering you.

    Like so:

    Who's been sippin' haterade again? There are so many dislikes on that video!
    Yuna's competing the same weekend as the GPF - naturally Golden Spin is going to be watched just as closely as that Final! And it's not Yuna's fault if the media pays even more attention to this competition and if it happens to upstage the GPF so be it!
    So Rudy Galindo has everything to do with my comment, but nothing with yours. Mistake in communication, I suppose.

    To me, they are. But if you don't need me pointing them out to you, that's fine. Just ignore what I write.

    You're not the only one, so no shame in that .

    For the record, however, Coaches Shin and Ryu are the ones who laid the foundations for Yuna's jump technique and skating skills. Many would argue that Yuna had pretty much already recognizably become "YUNA" in those critical and signature aspects, thanks to these coaches, before she even got to Brian Orser to receive the (also critical) final polish.

    Yuna's SP dress rehearsal

    Her SP dress is yellow one. Hmm, I am not sure about whether I like it or not. But this dress and her hair makes Yuna look like she is sixteen again. ^^

    As for her run through, I am kind of worry about her conditioning. She was still not atttempting any spin and other stuff and looked tired near the end. I also noticed that her back might be bothering her somewhat.

    Oh, I wish I was all wrong on this matter. Another 6 hours or so before the program. Can't wait any longer.

    Mustard... Not a good color for an Olympic program.

    Hope she and her designer come up with a new design after competition.

    Terrible costume. Just awful. Omg... who is the designer? What happened??? This dress makes me cringe! I expected her dress to be more like the one that she wore for her 2010 olympics gala program. I sincerely hope she changes her dress for the olympics cause this is going to affect her performance as well (NOT in a good way).
