    Korean sports documentary (with Yu-Na) to air on US TV in Aug/Sept (8/15 in LA/SF)

    http://english.chosun.com/site/data/...080400630.html
    U.S. network television is to show an hour-long documentary entitled "South Korea: Focused on Excellence" featuring the country's top athletes.
    ...
    The idea is to convey the hopes and dreams of budding athletes who will fill the shoes of current sports stars like Kim Yu-na, Park Ji-sung and Pak Se-ri 10 to 20 years from now.

    Kim Yu-na is referred to as "the most popular sports star in Korea." The production team interviewed Kim and her Canadian coach Brian Orser to hear about the difficulties she had to overcome to reach the top.
    ...
    The film airs in 120 cities across the U.S. between August and September on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox. In Los Angeles, which has a large Korean-American community, it will air at 12:30 p.m. on Aug. 15 on ABC and in San Francisco at 3 p.m. the same day. New Yorkers can watch it later in August.

    How odd that all four broadcast networks on another continent would air a Yu-Na Kim feature - when it is difficult enough to find any figure skating-related broadcasts on any one of the networks. I wonder if it was ever aired at all.

    I heard people from other sites who live in the LA area saying they watched the program. The program was aired on early Sunday afternoon, so the rating wasn't too high I suppose. I don't think it is even a "Yuna Kim" program; rather it is about athletes from Korea, Yuna being one of them.
