    "This is the first time that I chose ballet music for my program. I think it will be a great opportunity to show another side of me," explained Yuna Kim on the short program. "
    Will it be a side that points her toes while skating to ballet music?

    Well....I'll believe it when I see it (and I would love to see it)....but I don't really think she will skate at Worlds. That is a lot of pressure, and a lot of risk for her and her "brand", rolling the dice on one competition.
    DH - and that's just my opinion

    What I thought as well. Of course she could just as easily save it for next season, if she doesn't retire completely.

    I can't wait to see her programs. Honestly, with the way the ladies have been skating this season thus far, I think Yu-Na has a very good shot at regaining the World title. I wish she were debuting her programs at 4CC though instead of Worlds so she could have some feedback before March.

    I'm wary about Giselle because of her lack of ballet training, but visually speaking, she makes a beautiful Giselle. arirang is an extremely smart choice since Korean dance is all about flexed foot and "turned in" body movements.
    In any case, I'm very excited!

    FSU's good buddy Phil Hersh gets his $.02 worth in on the announcement.
    I thought he'd have some dreadful things to say about GPF first.
    Adding the vid of NY Phil performing it was a nice touch.

    6 triples and 2 double axels, one less than last year, meaning one less triple in combination than last year, should be MORE THAN ENOUGH for Ms. Kim to regain her world title.

    I do expect the ladies to "pick it up" a bit from the GP season, but I don't see anyone pushing her if she can do 6 triples and 2 2axels. Heck, she could probably get away with 5 if she's artful about arranging them.

    With her lazy, unpointed toe I hardly think "Giselle" will work. Esp. after Yukari's spectacular version just recently...

    I had never heard "Arirang" before and I enjoyed hearing the performance of it by the New York Philharmonic. It has great piccolo solos (very unusual) and, as a former professional flutist and piccolo player, that's fun to hear!

    I am wary too, but Nakano wasn't exactly known for her impeccable line and perfect toe points, so I wouldn't be entirely pessimistic.

    It's interesting you should mention Yukari because I don't see pointed toe there as well... I just saw wrapped legs. Nonetheless I liked the program.

    I'm just very thrilled at this music choice! This will be a challenge for her for sure but I'm sure she'll make beautiful and impressive Giselle.
    Yay, March, Come!!!

    Sorry to interrupt. I am not so sure her "Arirang FP" will be very well received in Tokyo. Maybe it would be a little like performing "Bells of Moscow" in North America.
