There were a tryout for new ice dancing team last November.
The goal of tryout is to select and support skaters who have potential as a icedancer to compete in PyeongChang Olympics in 2018.
(Since 2006, there has no ice dancing competition in S.Korea Nationals.)

Five couples are selected for ice dancing teams.

One of them is Claudia Muller and Won-il Jang.
Especially, Cludia Muller is well known to S.Korean figure skating fans, because she appeared at TV reality show, "Yuna Kim's Kiss and Cry," a Korean version of "Battle of the Blades."

Although her father is Swiss and her mother is Korean,
She chose S.Korean citizenship to represent S.Korea giving up her Swiss citizenship.

Muller and Jang participated in each single competition at 2012 Korean Nationals but will compete as a icedancing team from next season.

Muller took 4th place from 29 competitors (total score 113.33) in Junior Ladies,
while Jang took 2nd place from 6 competitors in Novice Men.

They appear together at the music video clip.
You can find them from 3:06 to 5:26
