    Look like you tried too hard to show your hateful to Yuna, fine, I will give you some info even though you maybe don't like it, haha

    Son Yeon Jae is not a new star, actually her peak popularity was around olympic 2012, then it just downfall after that.

    It was true that Korean media compared her with Yuna so many times, so much hype around her before, but Korean public simply didn't take it, instead they got tired then criticized her, even with her winning something these days, her anti on Korea internet community is no joke, hardly found any congrats mess to her

    For your more info, this kind of compare is the main reason she got all the hate from Korea netizens, she actually reached some level there, same as Mao or Adelina in Korea, ha

    As for the general public, not that serious bully, but before she reach highest level same as Yuna, Korea sports already have countless athletes bigger than her in every mean, talk about Ryu, Park Ji Sung, Choo Shin Soo, Park Inbee, Park Tae Hwan, Lee Sang Hwa, park seung hi, shim suk hee, lee yong dae .... They are all world-class athletes

    The only reason she was compared with Yuna because her good looking, plus the help from her agency, that's all.

    I just don't think that Yeon Jae is even near to Yuna at this level. Her winning record is just far from Yuna's record at this moment... i don't want to put her down, hope to see her improve...

    while those real fans of yuna are still here.. and continues to support figure skating in general in korea..
    lol

    I showed this girl in this forum on 2012 summer. She competed in London Olympic Games, and she was 4th, if I remember well. I also thought she will be the next Yuna for the Koreans. But I don't know too much about her career ... She had Russian coach and she lived in Moscow in that time.

    I keep up with gymnastics far more than with FS, and no one has ever even mentioned this girl in passing. And we usually discuss pretty obscure gymnasts.

    CORRECT. and Son has been paying Viner about $30,000 per month for,,,, you know
    I don't see many fans of her cause her gala show tickets were not sold out nor any products she's been promoting were the top sellers.
    People started bad feeling about her overwhelmed commercials, too many trivial articles about her life, and her unprofessional attitude.
    For me, I don't even care about her and her agency but sometimes they are trying hard to pull Kim down and that bothers me.
