Lee Si Hyeong appeared in a documentary(segment starting 10:47). It's focused on a radio host/peronality, kim hae young. She came to know him when she was on the panel of a morning program. It shares that si hyeong recently made the national team, and she's congratulating his mother. They explain that his family wasn't financially able to support his skating well, so she helped him out. He wasn't able to get new boots in a timely manner, so he twisted/sprained his ankle, failing to get on the nat. team at a competition. Kim heard about that and paid for new boots and treatment. Thought it was a great story worth sharing.

This is really touching, she is amazing person, Si Hyeong did so well in this year's Nationals and I'm so happy for him to go to Junior Worlds, even more now :sad4:

Since South Korea is the top 3 highest placing countries at the Championships, there will be 2 entries in all the JGP events for both Men and Ladies category next year.

So proud of jun hwan especially for earning all those spots, especially since korea's weaker in men's. I really wish ksu would reconsider their stupid rule about only level 7 or 8 skaters being eligible to get jgps. Seriously, who do they think they are? Usupportive, robbing young skaters of opportunities... :disapp:

I think it`s really great chance for young ladies skaters next season:biggrin: 14 TICKETS!!!:yahoo: Specially thnx to Eunsoo.

I may say these skaters to get the tickets(with no particular orders): Young You(d), Yelim Kim, Eunsoo Lim, Yun kyung Kam(d), Hanul Kim, Ji hun To(d), Hyun soo Lee
+ and maybe Chae eun Noh(d), So hyun An, Gyo hee Jeon, Bo young Kim, Suh hyun Son(is she still eligible next season? i donno but) also have possibility too.
I marked (d) just behind skaters' name who will debut as junior next season.(I mean who will just become eligible for ISU junior competitions next season):cool:

Hope they all do well at JGP selection events and also at JGPs!!:yahoo: Goood to see many skaters to grab the chance.

And I heard that this year`s JGP selection events will be held at late July, with senior skaters as well. Senior skaters will be headed for their first Olympic team selection events that time.(out of three, and yes, it's quite a looong way to grab the opportunity for home olympics.:drama:)

Now I started to feel the scent of Olympic season.;)

Lee/Kam of ice dance splited.
This is official, and Lee referred about it at her instagram.
Lee also said that she will retire from a competitive skating.
Some people said that she already starts coaching job under team Choi.(which is the team of Young You and Nahyun Kim)

Ji/Leftheris of pairs also splited.
Ji won`t give up her skating as a competitive skater, but now she`s training alone. Don`t know about Leftheris.

So sad that Hojung retired, she's part of 1997 squad :sad4: Curious what Haejin will do in next season... Ji/ Leftheris were this year's national champs, right? I thought why they're not at Worlds but that's the reason /sob/. Seriously, I hope that Korea will have skaters in all disciplines at Olympics (another wish is Team Korea to compete in Team event). We also really need to have 'State of Korean figure skating' for next season btw.

Sigh, all these teams splitting, I really like Kyueun and alex's skating though, so I hope they're fully fit(i believe she was injured since before nats and even had her knee heavily strapped at 4cc) and make some big strides for next season.

Also, Misha Ge said in interview that he will choreograph for various Korean skaters :agree:

There was 2017 1st KSU skaters' Level test at last weekend.
I was there to see, and some skaters did great job and get the level.:hap85:

[*INFO of Level test again!]
KSU divided the 'Levels' into Pre, 1~8. The highest is level 8. Skaters cannot climb all levels at once, they have to get it one by one from Pre-level to level 8.
Almost all skaters we knew get the level 8, like Yuna Kim(she earned it almost 15 years ago haha), Dabin Choi, Nahyun Kim, Eunsoo Lim, Yelim Kim and Young You..... Okay, almost all. And for men, Jun hwan Cha, Jinseo Kim and etc.

They do 4 times of level tests per year, and skaters should pass over level 5 to participate most of domestic events which is important (like Korean Nationals or Ranking competitions).
Skaters of level 5~6 can participate those events as junior, and 7~8 can participate as senior regardless of their age.

In level tests, two type of tests are going on. First is 'Required Elements test' and second is 'Free skating test'. Only skaters who passed R.E test can advance to Free skating test. This does going through in one day.
After passing both tests, skaters can get the level.



Last weekend's level test was important to the skaters especially who want to participate JGP selection events this summer, because KSU only allows the skaters over level 7 to participate the selection events. Of course they also have to meet the junior age of ISU. But if they failed to get level 7 here, they have one more chance again at 2017 2nd level test, because it will happen(at June) before selection events(maybe July).



Anyway, here's some of skaters' level test vids from last weekend.

*Level 5 (Required jumps to pass: 2A / Free skating: well-balanced Free skating program for Junior with 2A)

Haein looks so talented, she reminds me of You Young especially on jumps and spins. So is Soeun, good jumper and has nice quality in her skating. Yian has a bit of junior Yuna feeling omg, they look-alike (at least for me :laugh:) and have similar style. Boyoung and Gyohee are really good :luv17:
