    Oh, please, this is not clear at all. You're only trying to "make it clear" in a way that suits your own agenda.

    The article doesn't say that the coughing fit was caused by her fighting off the Japanese film crews. The article does say that the coughing and tears took place in the small, hot interview space, which, judging by the sequence of events described, took place some time *after* she refused the Japanese interviews. And somehow I doubt it was only Japanese film crews who were forcing her to sit through long long interviews - in fact, the article says "various TV outlets". In case you haven't noticed, there are film crews from many countries at most international skating events, and most of them (not just the Japanese) are fairly aggressive because they need to get footage for their broadcasts.

    You may believe that Japanese TV crews have a long and nasty history of harassing skaters to the point where the skaters can't perform, and that may be the case, but this particular example does nothing to prove that point.

    Is it possible to just think YuNa is a really good skater while believing she has flaws like every other skater and isn't a saint and can be both just as breathtaking and annoying as most other great skaters? Or am I just a heretic?

    Mother of God, Tara, Michelle, PLEASE come back. Suddenly your ubers seem like the height of rational sanity in a great skating rivalry.

    Nope, I would say you're right.

    Absolutely Right! No one CAN deny it.
    I've never seen a sportperson without a flaw including Yu-Na. And I also is a person with flaws and faults.

    BTW, do we have to neglect the series of what NTV did?
    • Taping a judge during counting each skater in Vancuover.
    • Taping without a prior contact and broadcasting without a permission from a skater.

    If the reaction to the illegality(or tacit agreement in the figure skating world) is a so-called silly thing then what would be the next step from the TV program. The program OUTWARDLY apologized several times but they kept doing what TV station shouldn't do again and again. This time it insists "We thought we made an explanation and camp Yu-Na understood."

    No apology but falsehood yet.
    This too will pass away.

    You may be at risk to be burned at the stake. Kidding.

    I wrote earlier but gosh this thread has somewhat disintegrated for the most part...

    It seems like only one person in particular is outraged at the taping (hint: it's not Yu-Na).

    Besides, this incident is not the sleaziest thing with the media and skaters' privacy. Remember when reporters offered money to Lily Lee (coincidentally another Korean skater) to wear a bug to pick up any conversations between Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan back in 1994? (She flatly turned them down, FWIW)

    Only one person wrote it doesn't mean Only one person is outraged at the taping.

    and Lily Lee was a Korean-American figure skater and holds dual citizenship.

    Thanks for the link. This is a cool sutff.
    Such a contrast to hidden camera stunt pulled by scumbs at Nippon TV.

    I think it was during the US broadcast of Lily's technical program that they mentioned the bug incident. It's kind of funny how the whole coincidence of her being on the same practice session was the reason why she even made the broadcast.

    It's funny how you always want to get the last word in, even if it's semantic nonsense.

    I have recently learnt about secrete filming over the judges' marking at Vancouver Olympic.
    Was it the same crazied station??

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5v2o...eature=related

    That must be the breach of ISU rule...Why ISU is silence about this major issue, let this be neglected and forgotten?
    So this nasty, obsessive japanese media called Nihon TV can swagger like outlaws, untouchables among already etiquette-less skating world.

    Since ISU controlled by much of sponcer's money power...what do I expect from them? silly me

    Only shame is their share.

    What does this video "prove?" NOTHING!! And ESPECIALLY at the Vancouver Olympics where Yu-Na won by a landslide! Please stop this ridiculousness.

    Yep, they really asked Lilly Lee to wear a hidden microphone, I remember reading about it. I wonder how Lilly Lee is doing these days? I think she was an american who decided to skate for Korea? Also I remember she only had double jumps?
