Cute group picture
Everyone looks happy! But where's Mao, Alexei and Evgeni?
I think it is because Mao and Yagudin arrived just today and Plushenko will arrive tomorrow.
Press conference photo (Alexei, Joannie, Evan, Mao, Stéphane, Jeff): http://twitpic.com/1tp77v
Curious, as Adam is not an Olympian, why was he included in the cast?
I think it's because he is very popular in Korea.
His popularity has been escalating since last April when he appeared for the first time in Festa. Pretty soon, he'll need body armor.
Apparently, during the practice, Joannie fell onto the ice and lots of laugh after.
Thanks to seniorita for posting these youtube video links at GS:

Looks like more videos may be posted by user HyundaiCardWeb... we shall see!

I couldn't get that practice photo URL to work, but this one did (135 photos):
ETA: now it's not working again , but the other daum galleries are. Oh well.
Album from earlier today (58 photos):
Notes: Pang and Tong are apparently Shen and Zhao... and they butchered Zhao's last name.
Evan is cut off by Joannie and Joannie is cut off by V/M.
Miki's English = awesome. Mao's English = non-existant. XD
Miki's English is fabulous indeed!
Mao didn't speak English in this video, but her's is super sweet and has improved a lot!
How wonderful for Adam to get to skate with the others on the cast. Great experience for him!
And how nice that the fans will support such a high quality show in Korea, even without Yu Na in the cast. It's great that her popularity and the attention brought to the sporthas helped create opportunities for other skaters as well.
Before I watched this I thought they were all together and were interrupting each other, pretending to be Rude Euros or something. But just a little editing problem ...
Honey, I'm still impressed by how good Joannie's English is. I don't know how people who speak such a completely different language from English as Japanese, Korean or Chinese do it.
Oh, and thanks for all the pic & vid links.
Joannie is from a French part of Canada, so it's normal that her English isn't as good as the other Canadians'.
Another video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_S0vTsSzNU&feature=player_embedded Ignore the cheesy music. XD
Watch when Mao introduces herself! The crowd CHEERS! It's awesome!
Jeff has the best "laugh face" ever.
I was complimenting her on how very fluent she is in English, considering it's her second language.
Oh, I got the impression you were saying her English wasn't so good.
Did some searching around and it seems that MBC (Korean network) will be televising Super Match X on Sunday June 6th from 4:10 pm to 5:20p.m. Korean time. (This is from 3:10am-4:20am Eastern US, and from 9:10am - 10:20am Central Euro time)
If you want to get up early, you can try to watch it live (I'm assuming it's being shown live, it may not be) on Sunday. You can find some MBC live internet streaming links in the Festa on Ice TV thread or try going here as well. You can also try looking around justin.tv for a stream as well.
So, in addition to the fan videos on youtube, we should get some MBC coverage videos as well.
Thanks HisWeirness! For Mao, V/M, Evan, Plushy, Yags, Miki, and S/Z I'll get up no matter what! <3
First time I did this sort of thing because I only watched the vids of Asia shows on YouTube and what not. -_-
Video, video! Whee!
Thanks for sharing. That user also uploaded the video below, and you can see some of the guys hanging out in the background.
Omg this photo. Just GORGEOUS.
Mao's spiral position is...perfection. It's just perfection.
Thanks for all the photos and videos guys! Really appreciate them.
