    I know the KSU is at the very least, miffed about the whole Yuna incident but I hope they turn their attention to So Youn who has a possibility of being at the top of the podium in the next cycle up until Pyeongchang. I'm sure they know that much considering her results at this Worlds.

    She may need an international coach so that maybe she could get a bit more attention. I'm not sure if the KSU is going to be eager to work with Russian choreographers but I guess we'll have to wait and see if So Youn will purely be a product of Korean figure skating.

    Baring anything that happened in Sochi, I doubt that KSU would want to send So Youn to the Russians.
    US maybe, definitely not to Canada where Brian Orser is, though.
    Though I think she might get choreography from David Wilson.
    That I don't want because his choreography has been getting lackluster these days.
    Still, he is still better than most choreographers out there.

    Thank you so much for the link
    So Youn is adorable and I really think she could be one of the medalists in 2018. Good luck to her and hope for the best!

    I am thinking maybe KSU should send her to Frank Carroll if they want her to have an international coach.

    Haha are you referring to Gracie?

    So Youn does have this refined way of skating despite her age. Very good! Having artistry down in addition to pretty good jumps, she's hopefully well on her way to a podium spot for worlds next year given some skaters are taking a break/retiring.

    I think David Wilson's choreo is great on refined skaters so I think So Youn would be fine using him. In terms to technicality, it seems like the Korean coaches are doing an excellent job so far...

    Canada would be awkward but I don't think sending her to the US would be any better (case in point the current American skaters and anyone who isn't team USA that's training in the US)

    Or I could just be cynical about US figure skating haha

    Yeah...I kinda am I do know that he's a good coach but the way he's been packaging his skaters lately isn't impressing me...

    Denis Ten isn't doing so bad! His programs don't wow me but I do love the fight that he puts into them.

    You do have a point. Denis is turning out fine, although I agree with you about his programs. I'm just unsure with her training under Caroll's wings.

    Artistry is questionable, but it looks like Gracie's and Denis's jump landings have been more stable. It's hard to credit coaches for certain things because it could just be the skater becoming more comfortable and whatnot but apparently every time they land, the commentators always talk about being the "Carroll" landing. Not that it looks any different from any other haha

    I think if So Youn was sent to Carroll, she could improve on the consistency of her jumps. Especially the high-value combination ones that she already has down but maybe more triples?

    Or maybe they could send her to PChan's previous coach, Christy Krall. She's a good one.

    LOL KSU is definitely not fond of the Russians right now. However, if So Youn was to train in Russia, even for just a month every year, I feel like the exposure to competition in Russia could drive her to improve.

    I think Krall is a better option than Caroll for sure.
