    Some recent Yu-Na pics:

    At school with a classmate(?):

    She’s a physical education major at Korea University, and it’s said she’s been regularly attending classes. Kudos to her schoolmates for being considerate enough and protective of her; there’s been very few photos of her school life on the net or on SNS.

    At the SBS’s year-end awards presentation gala:

    She was given a contribution award for her role as a mentor and a member of the judging panel in SBS’s ice dancing survival program, Yu-Na Kim’s Kiss and Cry.

    Although her skating isn't for me, I think she's such a wonderful role model and a charming person.

    Great to see her doing so many things and looking beautiful as always.:)

    As much as I miss her competitive skating, I don't really feel she's coming back to competition. Her life is full of so many amazing opportunities and she's busy doing so many things...if she's going to seriously train for Soichi basically all of that would have to stop for nearly a year so that she can focus on preparing. I don't know if that's something she wants to do or is even able to do.

    I guess we'll know what she plans to do in the next year or so...

    Yuna mentioned before her (near) future plan would be decided by this summer. Seeing that GP tickets are distributed early June or so, however, I don't see her coming back this season either. But since Korea only has one ticket for the ladies event at Worlds 2013 where the number of skaters for Sochi Olympics are decided, and it's hardly possible that the one skater from Korea other than Yuna can make that number of tickets into two. And Korea is the hosting country for the 2018 WOG. I don't see how they would let things deteriorate in any disciplines.

    That's why I'm so afraid and in fear that Yuna's getting another pressure to come back like last year's Worlds. Although she put out not bad performances from average standard, that was not what people expected from her, Yuna Kim. I, or for that matter, NO ONE wants to see her suffer like that.

    I really hope with all my heart that if Yuna ever decides to come back, that decision resonates with her heart and her fierce competitive fire she had going into Vancouver. Well, this is pure greedy wishing of mine, I admit it.

    I think Mee Hee, like any other business women would do, will make her daughter come back for more money and fame. Will they be successful at it, is another matter though.

    I can see this happening too
    and it will be painful to watch Yuna competing without any of her
    previous motivations other than pressure from her fed.

    but there is upcoming Hae Jin Kim so its not that dire in Ladies Korean FS
    she could finish top 10 and earn 2 spots for Korea in 2014 Olympics

    Hae Jin Kim and also So-Yeon Park are both very strong jumpers, both will be eligible for 2014 Olympics. Only Kim will be old enough for Worlds next season, but I think she can get 2 spots for Korea, hopefully. Both girls are certainly much stronger jumpers than Yun and Kwak.

    Any idea whether Yuna will be returning to compete in Sochi? Seems like the men's retirees like Evan, Weir and Plush are all gearing up for the big battle in Sochi. It will be great if it's the case of ladies too. Yuna please come back to compete in Sochi. It will make the women's competition ever more interesting like the men's.

    So far she hasn't said anything about Sochi. About competing in 2012-13 season, she did say she would decide on it during summer. I guess she will make the announcement in August, after the ATS Summer shows. If she decide to come back for the penultimate Worlds, then it's likely we will see her in Sochi as well.

    Today, Yuna, in her fourth year at Korea University, started 4-week teaching practice at Jin-Seon girl's high school in Seoul. About 80 media asked to cover her first class at the school and the school allowed just 40 mins open class to the media.

    Yuna's first lecture was on the Figure Skating.

    Good for her! I think it's fantastic that she is pursuing an education. :) :)
