Yes, Ilia looks happy and relaxed, and as usual, he appears to be the alpha-male in the group. He loves the Seoul audiences; I'm sure this will be a great experience for him and for all the skaters. I imagine he is particularly pleased that Katia gets to experience the 'once in a lifetime' feel of the SK audience. Sounds like it's going to be a great show all around - some terrific programs.

There seem to be two big screens at the both ends of the rink. Nice.

Just back from the rehearsal.

I had a really good time there, enjoyed very much and very nice to see the skaters again. ATS showed 4 skaters, a pair team and finale (twice for better harmony among skaters) & curtain call.

Kulik rehearsed Love in this club, Gordeeva Cinema Italiano and Lambiel Bring Me to Life(IIRC).
SHEN & ZHAO did Turantot.

And Yu-Na rehearsed "Fever". It's fascinating. :swoon: She did not jumped at all except a walley jump or a turn (in rehearsal) but almost everyone there loved the program. Costume, choreograph and her every move was really breathtaking. (I loved Shae-Lynn Bourne's single skate too.)

After skaters rehearsal, the MC told crowds "I'll play a video. If some of you can dance with the vid, please do that."
I giggled at first but when it started almost all the ladies and gentlemen there stood up and did exactly what Yu-Na, Min-Jung and Hae-Jin do in the vid. :cheer:

And there's QnAs with Kulik, Gordeeva, Lambiel, Yu-Na and S/Z.

IIRC,

Forgot Q to Kulik... Sorry.

Q to Gordeeva: I remember your "Giselle" performance long times ago. As a skater and performer, how was it Yu-Na's Giselle?
A: Many skaters performed "Giselle" before and it was interpreted in many ways. I can't compare mine with Yu-Na's.

Q to S/Z: After winning Olympic Gold Medal, What did you two do that night?
A: I can't give you an answer. Lots of children in this building. :lol:

Q to Lambiel: Can I see your fantastic spins tonight? (He did not do his best during the rehearsal.)
A: Yeah, there are lots of beautiful and great spins tonight!

Q1 to Yu-Na: What was your favorite banner at World 2011?
A: I saw all the banners in the arena, loved them all. My favorite is "승냥이왔다-Here Yu-Na's fan" because where-ever I go, It's been there.

Q2 to Yu-Na: Since when you're so beautiful?
A from David Wilson: Ever!
A from Yu-Na: Hmm, I just wanna thank you. :D

Q3 to Yu-Na: I wanna be a skater like you. (from about 4 or 5 yo girl)
A: It must be a really really hard way. But If you have a dream, believe in yourself and play your heart out.

Now show time in 3 hrs. :encore:

Back home from the 1st show.

The special rink was full of crowds. Skaters made some mistakes but it's a show. Who care?

Cizsny's improvement was remarkable. Skating was bigger and faster than I saw her last year in person.


And Yu-Na rehearsed "Fever". It's fascinating. :swoon: She did not jumped at all except a walley jump or a turn (in rehearsal) but almost everyone there loved the program. Costume, choreograph and her every move was really breathtaking. (I loved Shae-Lynn Bourne's single skate too.)

According to an interview, there was a planned jump but she still has a pain in her ankle after the short program in Moscow. So she skipped the jump this time (or next time too). Anyway "Fever" knocked crowds dead and received huge Standing Ovation. Yu-Na did 2 2As and 1A in her "Giselle" too.

S/Z's "Turandot" received SO from crowds.
Jouvert's "Rise" and Lambiel's "Bring Me to Life" made ladies crazy!

It's 23:50 and I gotta go to bed.. I'm exhausted but happy now. :40beers:



It's disco!! :)

He always showed fans something new every time. This time with the program, he showed his ability as an ice dancer as well as a jumper. He performed the music with the very choreograph, IMHO.

Yeah, I was and I'll. ;)

Some more? OK. Part II.

Gordeeva! My god... I knew her age but her skatings skill is there as it was. She's really in good shape. When she performed, Liza, her daughter, cheered wit all her might.

Abbott's programs were a bit hard to take at first appearance. But I can sure I would love it. He's alway floating on the ice.

Min-Jung lost the entrance/exit after 1st performance. She wandered here and there at the opposite side. :lol: It was so lovely.
Curtain call was really fun. All crowds from children to older danced together with skaters. Yeah, I did to at the first row in front of Hae-Jin Kim. :D

Peter Oppegard, Karen Kwan and their two daughters were there. They're surrounded by fans (http://spnimage.edaily.co.kr/images/photo/files/NP/P/2011/05/PP11050600085.JPG) and asked to take pictures and for autograph. Olivia and Sophia also autographed and fell over one another on how many autograph they did. Peter asked them not to argue.

ITA with you, Bezic!

And Yu-Na rehearsed "Fever". It's fascinating. :swoon: She did not jumped at all except a walley jump or a turn (in rehearsal) but almost everyone there loved the program. Costume, choreograph and her every move was really breathtaking. (I loved Shae-Lynn Bourne's single skate too.)

Just watched YuNa's "Fever" on @unisports_skate That girl can MOVE. I'm guessing a combo of She Lynn and David W. maybe??

Sorry I'm late I'm just back from family brunch!


Kulik, Katia and Liza at Incheon Airport (http://www.anewsa.com/detail.php?number=212162&thread=02r05).


Instead of my impression, I'll give you 2 comments from Korean fans.


I love the mood of his "Song for the king" the more but he's still cool with the programs. :swoon: Kulik has the dignity of princess. I hope young Russian skaters could have the same air as Kulik has but it must be impossible. Kulik has a unique skating skills. His spreading arms alone was fabulous! I was attracted to his wild charm from muscles too. :lol: :lol: I though I heard the sound of wind when he skated... His opening comment was "Free" and it's a perfect fit.


Ilia Kulik, Who wants to live forever.
I hold out little hope on his performances cause I know how old he is. BUT, I was so impressed by his skating - clean and nice. I'd like to say He's so experienced and veteran. His Arabian Cartwheel rock the house both in Act I and Act II.
He looked satisfied with spontaneous outbursts of cheers and applause.

I wanna say it to you.
Korean fans really thank Kulik and Gordeeva for their joining ATS together. Their existence enriched the ice show. And so many fans here wanted to meet "Gordeeva" before her retirement from the profession.

Million thanks for them.
