There is a rumor circulating among Korean fans that So Youn Park may retire from competition, after All That Skate 2019 this week.
Oh No!!! So Youn Park such a lovely skater, love to watch her perform, with EunSoo qualifying 2 spots for world's I would have thought she had a chance to qualify for 2020 Montreal.

There are so many young, talented skaters that it may be tough. I can see Korea becoming becoming quite competitive.

Any news on coaching changes for Eunsoo? I remember everyone was saying this was inevitable after what happened at Worlds.

^That's what people online (as outsiders to the situation) were saying, nobody knows what happening right now.

For some confirmed news, this was from a few weeks ago but Kyueun Kim was announced to skate with Maxime Deschamps earlier however her mother has confirmed that Max had a tryout while they were in Korea and would rather skate with the girl he had a tryout with so this partnership is now over. Kyueun is not looking for a new partner at this time so SK will not have a senior pairs team this upcoming season.

It's official now. So Youn Park just retired.


She's going to be a part of Cirque du Soleil Axel.

SBS Sports unearthed Yuna Kim's 2007 Worlds short program taken by an ENG:


This YouTube channel looks like an official account. I guess ENG means Electronic News Gathering camera. You can skip 02:14 ~ 02:35, where the cameraman focused on the spectators.
