With her lazy, unpointed toe I hardly think "Giselle" will work. Esp. after Yukari's spectacular version just recently...

I am wary too, but Nakano wasn't exactly known for her impeccable line and perfect toe points, so I wouldn't be entirely pessimistic.

It's interesting you should mention Yukari because I don't see pointed toe there as well... I just saw wrapped legs. Nonetheless I liked the program.:D

I'm just very thrilled at this music choice! This will be a challenge for her for sure but I'm sure she'll make beautiful and impressive Giselle.
Yay, March, Come!!!

It's like comparing Honda to Messi.

Sorry to interrupt. I am not so sure her "Arirang FP" will be very well received in Tokyo. Maybe it would be a little like performing "Bells of Moscow" in North America.

Hm.... how about performing "Geisha" in China or in France? :D
I think the problem with "Bell" was the program itself rather than the title...

Music choices wouldn't be a problem if people had just left national politics out of sports. That's so 1936. ;)

I feel that both pieces of music are better suited for FS. If only Yuna had swapped one of them for her Gershwin and used that as a short for this season.

I agree with you. There is no reason to think the non-Korean audience will be moved by "Arirang". In fact, I think she reduces her chance of winning by (i) performing Arirang in Japan, and (ii) not participating in other competitions prior to the Worlds. However, the dramatic effects she can generate by doing so is huge. With or without winning the title, her message to her countrymen will be delivered very effectively.

Thank God it's not Latin/Tango! :lol: Seriously..we don't know the choreography yet and I'm excited especially that Yuna is not known for her balletic moves and she will take this as a challenge. :D

I love Yuna, but I don't think it's fair to her to assume that she'll win just because the field hasn't been so awesome so far. Who knows what Worlds will hold? Frankly, I don't think anyone actually does.

That is true... I will say that Yukari at least had a firm toe, even if not pointed, whereas Yuna has a lazy and unpointed toe. I say, if a skater doesn't point, at least be firm like Elena Berezhnaya (fave skater of mine, too). Another thing in Yukari's favor was her wonderful facial expression which I personally don't get from Yuna.

We shall see :)

Giselle= Je l'adore! :cheer2:

I’ve always wanted to see this gal try something on the lines of Don Quixote (even though I swore that’s something I never wanted to see again after Hughes/Slutskaya performed to it), or something with a balletic style.
She is not a prima ballerina which means this choice is risky and a huge challenge. But of course, toe pointing and foot placing have been a concern for her, so this is a great vehicle for her to show her improvements. (I’m glad Peter is paying attention to her feet.:) Good on her!

Don't worry it's not for you.
And there'll be about 40+ more musics on the day, the music will be just one of them. :lol:

Yeah. I had partly agreed with you. I'm the one who think music choice is very important. Then I saw " The Bells" was pretty well received in Torino. The audience got excited and seemed they found no problem with the music and program. That was a little surprise for me. That's why.
