    Someone said that Yuna mentioned in her "Proud Korean Day" award reception that she is planning on an LA ice show scheduled to be held this coming October. Please verify this!

    Great! Yuna might showcase her new programs there!

    I am so there at the show. I wonder who will be the other skaters participating.

    Couldn't she get into trouble for planning a show during the Grand Prix Season?

    It overlaps with Japan Open, which is not relevant to YuNa but may keep some skaters from participating in the LA show.

    Japan Open participants announced so far are:


    Joannie, Mirai Nagasu, Jeffrey Butle, Adam Rippon, Evgeni Plushenko, Michal Brezina, Laura Lepisto, Sarah Meier, Mao asada, Miki Ando, and other Japanese skaters.


    Plenty of choices left for Yuna's show, although some might feel Oct 2-3 to be a bit too close to the Grand Prix season.

    If this happens, I hope they get Stephane and Johnny. Neither is competing and the fans would love to see them (I'd love to see them on youtube!).

    I'm hoping Michelle will say yes. :D

    Maybe they can invite Tara too and maybe Sasha as well? :D Kwan, Yuna, Cohen, and Lipinski in 1 ice show!

    I think the answer is buy a ticket to the LA show.
    You seem like a loyal fan and I know you are hopeful like many but there is no way Yuna Kim is competing at the 2011 World Championships in Japan --of all places --this year. Go to the LA show and take notes and share. If I lived closer I would go.

    Depending on the cast, I'll most likely be there. :) I went to LA for Worlds, I'll do it again. Only for skating. I hate driving to LA.

    You can be there in spirit, RunnersHigh!

    I so hope this show comes to pass. I will do everything in my power to be there regardless of the skater lineup b/c I know it will be a great show. I've never see Yuna skate in person. What a great opportunity!

    Kwan and Kim's side must have had the business side of it all ironed out. I thought it was going to be a tough negotiation as Kwan has big drawing power here (although the main target audience appear to be Korean Americans). Good for them.

    I need to figure out how to get the max out of the trip.

    actually i hope michelle doesn't skate in the show . why for a couple of reasons
    which were pointed out in the korea newspapers and by yu-na's management agency.

    1) it implies that the only reason yu-na is doing the show is FOR KOREAN people only--no one else (no other group) -she got the Yu-na day in Los Angeles for the Korean people--no other group. SO does that exclude the other groups of people.

    2) it is all about yu-na (which is no skating) i think. it is a show for yu-na about yu-na -which implies to see how well she sells in the U.S>

    3) it is political--would have Yu-na did the show in the U.s. without the Yu-na Day-which implies the person who brought is up (councilman might be up for office this november so he might have put her name in so he can be reelected.

    4) michelle if she skates might received a backlash as well as any american skater in the show due to the political impact that started it and the impressions that American people got, thought regarding her (honorary L.A. citizenship over american athletes)-whether there will be one or not, i don't know but what people are really thinking regarding this is leaving a bad taste in some American people mouths. so personally to be safe is not to skate in her show.

    Personally i find that show start has a political beginning that might her yu-na as well as other skaters who skate on the show.

    yes it is only a show-but would have yu-na did it without the yu-na day, they are impling that the Only reason they did is because of Yu-na day for the Korean people- (to much inbetween not said-or hasl got american people thinking what our government really says about american born athletes versus non-american. it goes beyond about a skating show.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Query5, if you don't like it, don't go. Simple as that.

    query 5 - your comments make no sense. I think it would be awesome to have 2 ice queens skating in a show, as they did in Korea. A queen from the past and the one for now and the future.
