Did anyone manage to catch The King Eternal Monach on Netflix? Very funny... you will know what I mean. Go.. watch!

Recent Philip Hersh article on the 10th anniversary of YuNa's Olympic win. E-mail interview with YuNa is included.

That was truly one of the most magnificent sporting and artistic moments in the history of the Olympics. Arts and Sports, the alchemy is inseparable for me.

What I realized at that point, without knowing a clue of who she is, is marveling (and wept) at witnessing the peak of human potential. How talent and hard work can rise to the occasion against adversity, breaks down cultural, social and political barriers in a human judged sport that has historically been very political.

No wonder she inspired and reinvigorated her country so much... and its subsequent knock-on effect that had been paralleled with the rapid transformation and elevation of S.Korea on the global stage makes it even more astounding. It even brought Olympic to her country, and North Korea to the world stage for a brief celebratory moment of peace and solidarity that seals her legacy.

Life's little miracles that is Yuna Kim.

I’ve been missing figure skating so much and have spent countless hours on YouTube watching past performances (competitions and shows) of my favorite skaters.

I’m so happy to discover this fanmade video of Yuna’s Olympic Send in the Clowns sp to the Beauty and the Beast song. I got CHILLS! This is a can’t miss for Yuna fans (and frankly any skating fan).

https://youtu.be/_-GCFzEPUCw

The music is almost perfectly aligned to her movements and her lovely arms wonderfully convey the emotion and soft romantic nature of the song. To top it off, Yuna’s elegant yellow dress resembles the iconic yellow ballgown that Belle wears during the waltz scene with the Beast.

It is so well done! Please enjoy.

I’ve been looking around and I’m wondering if anyone has seen Kim Yuna’s Kiss & Cry?? It was a SBS show she had WAY back in 2010 but I can’t find anywhere to watch it with English subtitles...
If anyone could help, much appreciated!!!

I've been watching some of Yuna's old programs and saw her "I see the light" exhibition for the first time. Her lines, musicality, charisma and flow are still unparalleled today. I'm so happy that we're still getting new performances from her. She will always be THE Queen.

I posted the following (under my Youtube name) in the Comments:

------------------------------

I have been a fan of “Queen” Yuna Kim since 2018, when I first saw her at the Opening Ceremony at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. As I began to learn about Yuna and her incredible story, I began to fall in love with her. And that began to change my life. 😊❤️

Too often, we dismiss promotional campaigns like these as ploys to sell products or bland attempts to deal with a changing world. And it’s very easy to become jaded and cynical not only about the world but about life.

Yet, when I see Yuna talking about her struggles and sharing her wisdom, I see in her strength, resilience, and courage.

It takes all of the above to fight hatred and despair. It also takes humility.

Most of the women featured in this campaign - including Yuna Kim - are famous and established. They do not have to do this. They can rest easy on their wealth and laurels while the rest of us struggle to survive.

But they choose to share with the world their Aloha. And, at a time when there are so many who are struggling simply to get through the day, their message will help save lives.

I do not know if I ever will have the chance to meet Yuna Kim in person. But if I ever do, I simply want to thank her for changing my life.

Thank You for sharing this interview.

Aloha 😊❤️🙏🏼

Hey OS @OS I see you're around ;) so I'm just letting you know that I love some of your posts on skating! 💓

Hi Skatesocs, thanks for your nice comments. Those were the days, seems a million years away, what a nightmare at Sochi. Hope all the Yuna fans are doing well. Saw Yuna on a Dior campaign, heroic and inspiring as always.

(So I am currently stuck in my corner of the earth doing the quarantine thing and finally, had time to revisit old skating programs on youtube after years of psychologically traumatized staying away from ISU judging/politics/pure bs.... man some of these comments on the Olympic channel LOL...!! I have always said history will reveal the truth back then. I am glad the people have spoken. Somehow made those rivers of tears we shed back then somehow justified... Hope quarantine gets over soon, I'd love to visit Korea to watch Yuna's shows.)
