This thread is surreal...

I came to see how the Yuna Kids are doing blah blah blah...
and all I got was seeing how Yuna fan (and half ;)) conspiring :blah::blah::blah: Korea reunification with a human zamboni!! Utterly surreal...

:shuffle:

Please lighten up. Someone told me a couple of weeks ago that everyone needs to let it go and have fun once in a while. ;)

So, the plan would be something like;
1) South Korea gets Hyun-Jung Kim to come out of retirement, and North Korea comes up with a guy.
2) Build a rink somewhere in the demilitarized zone and have them work their little butts off for 6 years.
3) They compete under unified flag of some sort in PC.
4) Skate to I Donít Know Enough About You for SP, and Long Live My Dear Leader :scream: for LP.
It makes sense to me.:respec::respec:

I'd like to see Min-Jung Kwak try pairs, she has the right build, her 2a and 3s are solid, and her flexibility would work toward her advantage. I guess the only thing is she'd need a tallish partner, and in Korea that might be harder to find, because I think she's around 5'4" now, maybe taller idk if she's still growing.

Good idea but I think she is too tall as a pair skater.

:eek: :yikes: :wall:

The program feels like a cheap ripoff of Yuna Kim's Tango de Roxanne program (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uTCAsSGgFWc) and that costume is totally inappropriate for a fourteen-year-old girl. Yes, I know that's illusion fabric, not skin, but this is *not* the way to package a young Korean skater!

That would be quite an insult to Karen Kwan.

I am not a fan of illusion fabric either and agree that her costume could have been better.

I apologize. (You aren't her kid sister, are you?)

Please, don't try to turn her into a pair skater. She happens to be the second best lady Korea has ever had, and currently is no.1 lady without Yuna Kim competing. ;)

Besides, she is still making a lot of progress in singles. I notice a significant improvement in speed and ice coverage looking at her recent showing. Sure, jumps are not quite there yet, but I presume she needs to adjust timings of her jumps, i.e. more speed hence less time to set up.
Min-Jung's FS 2011 Asian Trophy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_XS1DPVPJs&feature=related)

She is maturing and not a little girl anymore. If she can tame her nerves, she has potential to become one of a top 10 ladies in the worlds IMO.

Wow, not bad at all. Wonder how many times she rewatched yuna's Tango De Roxanne!

A style trend seems to be developing among the Korean young generations, particular the use of arms to their fingers, musical expressions and confidence in their end pose :)

Here's her exhibition.

Seriously, you don't even have to tell me her nationality, there are so many greatest hits references, you just know who's her inspiration. Really cute ending hahaa....

What about Na Young Kim and the other young girls who, a few years ago, showed up with nice spins and 3toes and sals at 4CCs?
