Oh, I was about to post a new thread about it. Thanks, Visaliakid!

Here are HD videos with better audio quality:

Train ride (originally by IU)

I'm in love (originally by Narsha)

Garden in the air (originally by BOA)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTWj1XrdVw0

The show was recorded July 20 and was broadcast tonight August 1. She really sings very well and I hope you guys enjoy these songs although they are in Korean.

But, Visaliakid, your thread title makes me feel like to remind you of one of her interviews right after the Olympics:

Kim flatly denied the latter.

“I do not have any plans whatsoever of starting a career in the entertainment industry,” she stated.

Awww, she's so beautiful! I don't understand what she is saying, but her voice and tone to me is more pleasing to listen to than most US female pop singers. Then again, Yu-Na has way more class than most US female pop singers too. :encore:

Yuna is amazing. I mean she's like good at everything, and seems really sweet and classy and genuine despite all her fame.

Below is a quick recap of MC Kim Jung Eun and Kim Yuna’s conversation:

KJE: What are the standards for selecting these songs?

Yuna: These are the songs that I enjoy listening to. I admire artists who sing well, like Younha and IU”

KJE: I think Kim Yuna admires singers who sing well because she sings well herself”

Although Kim Yuna may not be a professional singer, she has a beautiful singing voice – don’t you think?

Man, that gal has a lovely voice! Would it come across as too conceited if she were to skate to a recording of herself singing? I hope not.

She has a really pretty voice. The girl is just way too talented. :)

She has a really good musical ear and rythm – those songs are really not easy at all to memorize and intonate well! Her expression is sincere and nice, but it certainly shows nobody ever coached her – like for example, she is not moving at all on the stage, just standing still, etc. She is also a little bit shy about the whole thing –*like she doesn't believe that people really like it. It would be very interesting to see her perform after some real singing coaching and rehearsals... However it is very sweet and somehow touching to see her like this too :)

Wow, I never would have thought that she sings aswell! She has a lovely voice and indeed could enter the showbiz as a singer. Amazing Gurl!

Sadly, I have to agree. Jpop is far more interesting. With that said, Yuna has a good voice. Even though she says she has no plans to enter showbiz, it can be good second career when she decides to retire from skating. I know several former Chinese female gymnasts have entered the business doing acting and singing since their retirement.

Not so much gross, manufactured, outdated and unoriginal as Jpop. :) Most Jpop songs sound exactly the same, with the high school girl in uniform styles dug out from 1980s, the last time Jpop's was popular in Asia. Sorry to Jpop fans, but I just can't stand it... eww
