    And yes for all this love for You Young I still think that Eunsoo in her best is ahead of Young and Yelim but she's been rather cautious and focues on being clean/ consistent, while Young is just attacking everything and I love her so much for that

    yeah... i remember the same about Marin, etc, etc.. but the truth is that Eunsoo is very unstable, when Young looks much more confident and has much better technique, which are the most important things in a current state of figure skating.
    This is a simple fact, and it has nothing to do with my own preferences or something else.

    Most dangerous opponents from other countries? Is it Japanese ladies thread?

    All right joking aside. I love Eunsoo - she has great presence on ice and she is natural performer but she isn't even close to be a danger for top Russian junior or Rika Kihira. She constantly loses lvls on spins (and it's visible in real life especially if we compare her to Japanese juniors who have killing spins) and her speed on step sequence is not so great. And it isn't hating. She really needs coach who will help her with it otherwise she will be in trouble soon and it's the last thing I'd like

    You Young is more all-around skater. I don't enjoy her programs but I enjoy her skating and charisma. After making a mistake Eunsoo seems to be more reserved while Young attacks the rest of program.

    And I'm happy Yelim changed her programs. She seems to be more comfortable with them

    Which is basically what happened to Young last year....
    Regardless, I hope all three are positively motivated to push each other to improve and mature.

    Eunsoo is still my fave because first loves are hard to forget, but YY has really impressed me with the speed of growth she's had as a skater. Some cricket magic right there with how she's extending her arms and her jumps too. Her performances in Italy and the qualifying test skate were like day and night. Her biggest weakness right now imo is her skating skills. She doesn't really glide and seems to be sort of running/walking over the ice which takes up more of her energy than it should. She's in a great place surrounded by a top class team for that and many other aspects so I'm pretty much positive that she'll be transformed once again in nationals and can't wait for it. LOVE the air swordfighting bow she did in the end too. So sassy and charismatic, dang girl.

    As for Yelim, I was really moved by her FS!! Bby finally got it together and her new programs are so much better. I liked the Lala land EX more than her Lala land FS from the start so I'm glad she switched it up. Song is better too. She seemed more graceful in the FS and her reactions whenever she finishes always make me smile. I was pretty harsh on her after her last JGP, but I'm really rooting hard for her. I'm still not the biggest fan of her coach, but I'm glad she took action about the programs. She looks really young and Yelim seems to be her top student, so I'm actually hoping they could both get help from a more experienced coach for the non-jump elements.:/ More domestic coaches is always a good thing imo. Thought her arms and upper body movements looked quite nice in the FS though.

    Eunsoo. She was definitely focused on as Korea's top junior both from outside and domestic eyes and the pressure really got to her. She was lacking the spark that she had in Dresden last year that made me fall in love. She's grown more sophisticated, but her spins have regressed from her height boost and she approached things really cautiously. Hoping she'll bounce back from the disappointment and learn to deal with the pressure because it never will really go away.


    SIHYEONG, THE BOY WITH THE BEST COSTUMES. His smiles after his jumps in the FS are everything. So so cute and did well in the FS! He's so tall though that I don't know how he'll handle more difficult programs jump wise.

    YOUNG HYUN'S PROGRAMS ARE SO FUN. I jammed to the music in the SP and the 2A at the very end was super gutsy, I love it. The sword flick movements to the sfx and the entrance to his step sequence in his FS are so good too.He has a lot of good qualities, but his wide open air position on his jumps lol.

    Gonna comment on Sunghoon too since I didn't last week because Poland physically hurt me. Always making me feel like a creeper with a weird sense of guilt because he's so cute but I gotta stop myself because dude he's 14. He has a certain elegance to him that I really like along with really nice spread eagles. Jumps weren't really with him there and he leans really forward on his take offs, but I hope he can slowly fix those issues and start going for the 3A. 2A in the short was nice with lots of distance. I love jumps with distance!!

    Team Korea was super cute in Italy and while there were a lot of heartbreaks this JGP, it was really fun for me to follow them. The ladies all need to work on their spins and skating skills if they want to stand on the same stage as the other girls on top and I think they all know this, but it's a whole other matter all together whether they have the resources to get up to speed on that. Jihun was the pleasant surprise for me because she got level 4 on all her non-jump elements and her SS seemed good too so it's not like domestic training is hopeless in that area. Anyway, hope everyone has a nice break and then gets back on the ice to work hard for nationals.

    apparently you are the guy, who pushing his agenda in various threads.
    so was in japanese ladies thread, where you was trying to diminish all japanese ladies, in favor of your beloved marin. you annoyed japanese fans so much, that now you are forced to pretend that you like not just marin, but many of japanese ladies.
    and now it's time for korean fans to know how every korean lady are not worthy of your precious and cute eunsoo.
    as for me, i think that eunsoo is still the strongest korean lady at the moment, but i see a much more potential in young you. her improvment in a short period of time are really awesome and surprising.

    I really enjoyed You Young's free yesterday. Like her packaging most of all the Korean junior ladies.

    it will be a though decision to choose who'll go to JWC next year, but i think the top 2 junior so far is Eunsoo and You Young. i want to see Yunkyung in international competition though, sad that she can't compete in JGP because of injury

    well, i used to like you, because you like anna s.
    but now i learned about your obsessions with marin, eunsoo and even konstantinova, and i just don't know what to think about you.
    do you really like shcherbakova's skating? or you adore her, just because she is cute.
    i think, it's possible, that you don't care about skating at all, and you are choosing your favorites just based on how a girl looks
