    For 16-year-old Hae-jin, however, contemplating a skating world without 'Queen Yuna' is almost too much to bear.

    "Even talking about her retirement makes me cry," she told Reuters as tears welled up in her eyes. "Yuna has always been in my figure skating life. She is my life."

    When asked by former President Lee Myung-bak who would carry Korea's figure skating hopes to Pyeongchang and beyond, Yuna anointed Hae-jin her chosen one.

    Good luck to all the young Korean figure skaters. I am sure there will be an emerging star like Yuna sooner or later from S. Korea.

    Jeez, the headline makes it sound like she passed away.

    There are a couple of promising Korean ladies at Jr Worlds and 2 of them will have the pleasure to accompany Yuna to Sochi. :)

    I just hope the Korean Fed does not put all the pressure onto them after Yuna retires much like they did to Yuna circa 2007 - 2010. They were great talents but not at all the phenom that was Yuna.
