    eee, no. He just had eye problem and canceled AOI in Shanghai and DOI. Now it's getting better but nobody knows how much better.

    Thank you for information :).

    And on June 28 he informed that "Follow-up tests just showed that everything is back to normal and I can start skating again!" :). After that shows like 'Fantasy on Ice' on September 1-2, 'Figure Skating Aore Nagaoka' on September 15 and 'Opera on Ice' on September 22 were confirmed. So, if he can skate in 'Fantasy on ice' on September 1, then he should also be able to skate on August 24-26. He'll just have to go straight to Japan after the Korea show.

    Thank you. Eh, for me this cast is not as exciting as it could be. Usually there are at least 12 participants. I also sort of don't like this new "fashion" of inviting ice acrobats and adagio skaters. I would like normal skaters more. Plus, I was hoping to see Kurt Browning once again, as he liked it there last year. And also probably some Japanese lady. But I guess, now that Yuna is back into competition, she wouldn't invite one of her direct rivals :D. And most likely they can't go anyway.

    Still, Lepisto and Rochette will be interesting, as I've seen little or nothing from them recently. And, of course, Kim's new exhibition, as well as Lambiel and his new exhibition. Also Totmaniana/Marinin - interesting what they will skate in a show like this, and how they will fit in.

    I saw them live in shanghai. This pair team's programs were not way different with other pair teams. But I just want them to change the costumes.

    I loved the costume thogh there would be teens and children. I mean it was *NOT ENOUGH* to cover your butt, Fiona. :wideeyes:

    :lol:

    Indeed Jenny811, ATS's cast never disappoints. They are all World medallists and great skaters. And the Korean audience ..... energetic, welcoming and appreciative. What more can a skater ask for! Wonder whether Jin-Seo will be skating too? As usual, already looking forward to the vids downloads for the ever fast moving skating fans in August. :)

    Korpi isn't. But I agree - ATS always has great casts and they do a good job of bringing in skaters with different styles and having a different combination of people each time.

    I think Korean crowds really love Kiira, for her beauty especially:rolleyes: But she is a EC medalist though:D

    They have more than enough OGMs in every show. This time, three olympic gold medalists are in! And six-teen world titles:kickass:

    He attended every ATS Shows in Spring and Summer for 3 years. And I gave him the title to cerebrate his 6 times participations in a row. :lol:

    His participation has been polishing ATS brightly. :40beers:


    Schedules! i.e. ATS twitted tweeted they invited Virtue and Moir but they had a previous engagement at home. :(

    Didn't they announce him as 'King of Spins' previously?

    I seem to recall he then go out there and did a quad, which resulted Joubert and Patrick all inspired to go for one too and succeeded - at an Ice Show! Imagine the energy of the audiences made these guys do.

    I guess they need to shorten his title to simply 'King', but then Yagudin is performing this year, and we all know who's the REAL king of ice, or maybe he is the Emperor? :p But what about Patrick? I seem to remember a hilarious Emperor Chan banner at an Chinese ice skating show. I do think he is seeking a lifetime membership though :)

    Great cast, love the new comers and look forward to see Joannie and Lepisto back on ice!

    Can't wait for her new program, hard to top off the last 2 imo, in particularly 'All of Me' which could be one of my all time fav exhibition of hers, next to Only Hope.

    They would and would have. But this summer show of Yuna's overlaps with Champs Camp, so:rolleyes: One can only hope since D/W are probably the only dance team who didn't make Yuna's shows as world champions/medalists in recent field.

    Reportedly, one of Yuna's programs is "Tango de Roxanne"
    Same music, same choreography but new costume, changed tonishly!

    And the other will be "All of me" with 4 male skaters.
