    Olympic gold medalist Kim Yu-Na collaborated with boy band Big Bang for South Korea's World Cup cheer song. "Queen" Yu-Na has not decided if she will continue competing and the music video shows she may have found a new career.

    How do the worlds of Olympic champion figure skater and 2010 World Cup soccer collide? Easily. Kim Yu-Na joined pop band Big Bang for South Korea's World Cup cheer song, "The Shouts of Reds Part 2."

    Kim singing does not come as a surprise to her avid fans - she often performs at her ice shows in South Korea and also sings in several commercials. But "Queen" Yu-Na's collaboration with Big Bang for one of the world's biggest sporting events takes her singing (and fame) to a whole new level - from athlete to pop star.

    The best part - not only does Kim rock the dance moves in the video, her voice is spot on for a catchy pop song you will be tapping your feet to all day...even if you don't know what they are singing about.

    I think Yuna already said that she will stay with skating.

    Very cute -- I especially like the young guy with the waffle eye bug out on seeing Yu Na!

    Any idea why the first banner shown is in English? Isn't this meant for a Korean audience?

    The song made it to the top 20 chart? And Yuna is not even a pop idol. :lol:
