    1 photographer
    2 bodyguards

    Gosh, some of you just can’t get positive and reasonable. You just can’t waste any opportunity to put a negative slant on her personality, can you? Yu-Na is a reasonable, down-to-earth person just like any of us, maybe except you.

    If I bother to go into details, she will be accompanied by two of her fellow Korean skaters including Jin-Seo Kim (who’s also participating in the event), an international judge representing KSF at the event, some officials, her manager, and the coaches of the athletes including two of hers. And FYI she does her own makeup and hairdo.

    Lighten up, and enjoy her return. Like many of us here.

    Wow you are obsessed, can't believe you bothered to type it all out. Perhaps you got her mixed up with some other skaters you are more familiar with Japanfan. Let's just watch the skating shall we?

    Do you really need to insult the fans of skaters you don't like, bot? If you don't like a skater, which is perfectly fine, just don't post any comments there. Too difficult to understand?

    Are you folks on the same message board. Standard FSU practice is to trash skaters you don't like. That is how you make skaters you do like look better.

    Does it work? No

    But it is not worth fighting. Either learn to ignore or use the ignore poster feature.

    I believe part of the group are the two other Korean skaters.

    Korean event coordinator
    2 Coaches (Yuna and Hojung share the same coach)
    3 skaters
    Stylist
    Bodyguard
    +other?

    Calm down folks, it was just a joke. In my view the OP on an entourage of nine was rather tongue in cheek as well.

    S/S had a clean SP. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GFPfK-iaM0

    IN article: German pair mixes it up as Kim arrives at NRW

    It sounds like Yu-Na had missed the flight out of Paris to Düsseldorf, and arrived 24 hrs late.

    Results page: http://www.lev-nrw.org/lev2008/docs/...1189/index.htm

    Meite, Lafuente, Makarova in the 1st group, Hecken the 2nd group, Helgessons the 3rd.

    1 director of her agency
    2 Korean skaters including Jin-Seo Kim
    1 her mom
    1 someone I don't know

    Yuna's SP is up on YT. Monstrous jumps, indeed!
    Kim scored 72.27 (37.42 TES, 34.85 PCS to be confirmed).

    Ashley Wagner had better get that triple triple together to have any shot against Yu-Na!

    Gorgeous!

    She honestly hasn't lost a thing, to come back and land a beautiful 3/3 like that is only comparable to Zhenya's comeback imho, when he landed a quad his first time out after being away for 3 years. I bow to the both of them.

    Once again she's the one to beat, and rightfully so, she has it all. I haven't seen a female Olympic champion of this calibre since Oksana Baiul, whom also had it all, and more ~ presentation, artistry, charm, jumps, et al.

    Here's hoping she becomes only the second female Olympic figure skater to repeat; the first being Katarina Witt. And if she stays in for the long haul I can honestly see her tieing Sonja Henie for the most gold medals ever won by a female figure skater at the Olympics *ever*!

    After watching her skating today, *some* skaters must have been very disappointed by her strong skills and artistry.

    I wish she had a more dramatic costume and makeup to go with that music. She looks so delicate and feminine when she steps on the ice and then she skates to that dark heavy music, it seems a little jarring. I think that is why some people say they can't get into the music. The choreography looks fine to me and she skates it well. I like a little drama on the ice.
