    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:

    Looks like a nice cast of skaters. What about some ice dancers?

    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.

    Good Grief!!! Exciting news!

    So it is true she is revisiting her old programs like I suspected! Can't wait to see the new upgraded version as the elder Roxanne.

    I wonder if she might contemplate Lark Ascending at some point in the future too!

    Glad she is keeping All of me :)

    OMG OMG OMG!!!!!
    Roxanne!!!! Incredible!!!!!!!!!!!!! With more mature Yuna, it will be epic.
    I really wish I were in Korea to watch the ice show.


    ETA: I don't want her to re-do Lark Ascending to be honest. Pure, ethereal, airy, girlish, fragile, baby bird's first flight feeling so that even though it had some mistake, it was perfect as it was IMO.
    Roxanne, on the other hand, will be definitely better now with more refined, mature, enticing Yuna. Yay!!!!!

    I guess this means it'll be Yuna surrounded by Chan, Joubert, Yagudin, and Lambiel? If so, wow. What a program that will be! So excited to see this, wish I could be there live!

    Well, I guess she will be surrounded by them for a first few seconds, like it was in the previous show.

    This is fantastic! Never seen Yuna repeat any of her programs before. I wonder how she'll fit into the program with much matured skating and performance.

    I honestly think her Tango and Lark would be wonderful to revisit as competitive programs for worlds this year. Her skating is much more refined and mature now and I'm sure David could do something to "spruce them up" a bit and reintroduce them.

    I'm excited to see her perform Tango again...:biggrinbo
