Venue: Uijeongbu Ice Rink

The Ranking Competition determines 4CC entries and is one of the criteria for National Team and Olympic selections. The competition will be held without an audience, whether a livestream will be provided or not is yet to be announced.

National Team and Olympic Team members are decided by combining the results of Nats and the Ranking Competition. For the National Team, the main team consists of 8 women and 4 men and the reserve team 9 women and 3 men. For the Olympic Team, the top 2 men and women from the National Team will be chosen.

As always the distinction between seniors and juniors is domestic, i.e. not taking age into account. Non age-eligible domestic seniors will be marked with a *.

All times are in KST, +9 UTC.

YES! I have something to watch after Rostlecom! I can't wait to see Jun and Young and my new children Jaekun and Yeonjeong again :giggle:
I also really hope Minchae doesn't WD, I've missed seeing her on the JGP


Long live the Queen and her successors

Thoughts from Women's SP:

Oh my goodness, I totally forgot how good Boin's SP costume is. If Kami wore that while skating to Bolero, I would like the program 10x more. Also, that step sequence was great!
Jia has such lovely movement and flexibility! That spiral :love:
Yeonjeong! What a lovely clean skate! I love her skating, packaging, costumes, everything. Hopefully she can do this well tomorrow
Chaeyeon also delivering a solid performance technically, although her skating felt a little more juniorish. I can't wait to see her grow over the next few seasons
Seoyeon! I can't believe she backloaded her 3-3! Another really solid skate... how is the KSU going to choose international assignments both this year and next?
Minchae! Welcome back! It was looking so good, until the lutz fall :(. Still pretty good considering she's recovering from injury. +10 for the costume, I love everything about it
YOUNG! A 3A with a stepout, but the other jumps were really good! Her step sequence looked fantastic here, lots of gorgeous upper body movement with lovely footwork. Her skating has improved so much since last year :)
Ahsun, aka "Smells Like Teen Spirit Instrumental Cover" girl! I actually really like it :slink:. Another skater who has great technical skills, but is a bit juniorish in PCS.
Seoyeong landed stuff! It's a shame she's so inconsistent, because she's really talented. But the music... why are we using the soundtrack from the Last Airbender movie? If any piece of music is cursed, it's probably that one.
Let's go Eunsoo! Cheering you on for Ichat! Ooh, that lutz was tiiiiiight, nice save. SO on the 2A... nooo. 3-2... smart and very well done! No +BOMBO for her today. One of the few skaters who can sell a Roxanne program without making me want to cover my ears. But the music cut is just :palmf:
YELIM! Very sparkly tonight, I approve. That 3Lz was huge! A nice clean skate and why can't Korea have four women at the Olympics? She's so good, although I do want a bit more facial expression. Into first, and rather fairly imo.
Haein! This dress deserves a +20 :love:. Another lovely, clean performance. Her jumps were a little hesitant, but she more than makes it up in the step sequence. Aagh, why can't Korea send three women to the Olympics? šŸ˜­

The free will be interesting, there's lots of potential for movement among the top four. Korean women are such a joy to watch. They have quality in every aspect of their skating.

Thoughts on Men SP:

Well it started out really well with Juheon Lim. That was a gorgeous 3Lo
Poor Hangil. I love the opening of the program and he skates it really well but that opening 3Lz went all wrong. At least he got a combo in and didn't spiral after the mistake
The last two skaters in the first group both had "some guy singing in Italian" for their programs, which is not my favorite. They landed their jumps, which is always nice to see. (Why are domestic men's competitions so pleasant and then international men's events just sheer chaos?)
JUN! I love love love his SP this year. He has apparently decided to go to the Shoma Uno School of Cantilevers and Falling On Jumps You Already Landed Because You Caught Your Free Foot (seriously that 4S makes me mad) but oh my goodness the choreo in that step sequence is just *chef's kiss*
Poor Sihyeong, that was a rough fall on the 4S so props to him for recovering to land a 3A right after. His skating is full of potential. Hopefully in a few years he'll be more consistent with his quads and can also develop into a stronger PCS skater. He could have some truly gorgeous lines a few years from now with the length of his limbs and the grace he already possesses.
Jaekun! The small baby Yuzu fan! He looked a little nervy on the opening jumping pass, but he skates his programs ridiculously well for someone who's just thirteen. He's so tiny ā¤ļø
Younghyun did well. His 3A was a bit scratchy but he did everything else well. He has a rather dramatic flair to his skating that's fun to watch
No offence to Kyeong Jaeseok, who is probably a wonderful skater, but I've been watching this event for four hours and I'm taking a break now. Hopefully Jun isn't hard on himself over the silly 4S fall.


Final Flight
Jan 19, 2021
I'm so glad the top 3 Korean ladies skated so well. I hope Young and Yelim get the team spots, though Haein is wonderful. Yelims's program finally looked as amazing as it did last year and I loved it. Young's step sequence is some of the best choreography across the field this season I think. Landing the 3A in the short is big for her, but she almost never lands one in both programs, so I'm still holding my breath.

Get well soon, Aliona!

I was worried I'd missed the whole women's free but it looks like I'm in time for the final groups! Hoping for clean skates for all!
