    Team Korea Youngsters

    After reeding this from dorispulaski on the So Youn fan thread:
    "You might want to start a Team Korea Fan Fest thread! There are a lot of up and coming Korean skaters."
    I think she is right and it´s time for a thread for the young and promising korean junior and novice skaters. I will start with:

    Junior Skaters

    Da Bin Choi SP Lp She has awesome jumps and 3-3 combos, but needs to work on her prensentation. She finished 6th at Junior Worlds this year.
    Hwi Choi Sp Lp The opposite. Need to work on her jumps. She has no consistent 3-3, but is a lovely skater. Love her Abba programm this year.
    Kyu Eun Kim Sp Lp Very expressive girl. Her Interview with a Vampire programm is marvelous choreographed.

    Novice Skaters

    Yeri Kim Lp Very promising. At Asian Trophy this year she was on the podium togther with Yuna Aoki and Marin Honda. She came in second.
    Jun Hwan Cha Sp He is very talented!!! Shoulders a little bit high and tense, but he has very good basics and is very expressive to the music. I am really looking forward to his progress the most

    Certainly there are a lot of skaters I forgot to mention. Please feel free to complete the list.

    I love Cha Jun Hwan. He's the most promising of the Korean men, imo. I too look forward to him improving this season, before his junior debut.

    Wow really love Cha Jun Hwa's Danse Macabre, like this version of music very much (He is more musical than Veronov at his recent Danse Macabre), the drum really make a huge difference. Did he win?

    Will he age eligible for PyeongChang? Good to see Korea has many promising youngs skaters. Keep up the good work!

    He did win Results.

    And since he was born on 10/21/2001, he'll be 17 years old by 2018 Olympics, so I assume he is eligible

    just recommend the other great program.

    Ye Ri Kim sp 3t3t 3ltuz 2a. I think she has outstanding musical talent and performance. Though her technically skills is not steady, it can still to be expected.

    Eun Soo Lim sp 3ltuz 3f2t 2a. IMO, she also has amazing musical presentation and it seems that she has great height of her jump. It is so pity that she will miss Pyeongchang Olympics at her hometown.

    Jun Hwan Cha fs He is starting to try 3A, but I think it is too earlier for just 12 to practice it. Everything is refined in his performance. Expect to see how he compete at JGP next year.

    He did really well. It is not easy for a 12 year old child to do a Rachmaninoff piece justice.
    Is his FS from Merano Cup also available on You Tube now?

    A pity indeed. What's surprising though is how her jump technique got better from last season. Before, she had this iffy mule-kick for her toe jumps and now they look much nicer. She does need to work on them still as her lutz looks borderling flutzy and because she's not extending her leg enough to pick. The senior tech coaches are definitely paying attention to her due to the expressive presentation she has that the other youngsters lack (sadly).

    Moreover, here are some of the skaters I am looking out for:
    Im Ah Hyun (임아현)
    LP
    I feel so sad for her. She's one of the youngsters that I'm really fond of. Please conquer puberty!

    Eun Su Yoon (윤은수)
    SP
    LP
    This girl can jump! has nice SS, good presentation. She does need more consistency. Also praying for her to conquer puberty as she's getting a lot of URs in Ice Challenge.

    And here are some of the younger ones (like Novice A/B to pre-novice) that I enjoyed watching as much as I can before puberty knocks on their door
    Kim Ye Lim (김예림)
    SP
    LP
    Liking her SP more than her LP. I'm wondering how she'll deal with puberty since she's relying a lot on rotation when jumping.

    Park Go Eun (박고은)
    LP
    She hasn't competed lately, which I think is good. Here is her LP. Idk why but it's one of those programs that I keep on watching.

    Leen Yoon Ji (이윤지)
    LP
    One of the rare young skater for team KOR who has lovely arms and good posture. She does need more speed but that will go with her naturally as she develops

    Mo Ji Won (모지원)
    LP
    This girl is so much fun to watch. This version of her LP is longer than her first skate 5 months ago. You can see that she's more focused, hence her presentation was a bit lacking. Fun skater to watch though so look out!

    Not yet, but he only didn't do well for 3ltuz2t. However, I think he has great mental control that can be watched in his every competition. It's very important.

    Also I want to introduce one more young skater.
    Young YOU
    She born in 2004, so eligible for 2022 olympic.
    I picked her best program (IMO) at both short and free.

    sp: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTd6QiRZoSs
    fs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvmhGUbpUII

    She can do 5 triples, 3-2.
    Also her presentation is really good. Lovely skater.
