This site is About Kim Yu Na but not so much focused on new up-to-date events surrounding Kim Yu Na our aim is more to high-light her remacable life todate, providing interesting links articles videos and pictures largely provided by others in the media and those lucky enough to have worked with Yu-na or have been in close contact with her as a person.
Born on September 5, 1990, It’s now 2012, that means Yuna is just 22 years old and has a life time still in front of her.
It’s a bit sad to read Yu Na has decided to skip the Grand Prix series this year. Yu Na will only compete internationally at the world championships, according to the Korea Times. This is depressing news for for us and all of her skating fans.
She usually only skates to songs like Bulletproof and Fever nowadays, we miss her performing pieces like Danse macabre, The Lark ascending, her Olympic programs are the most memorable but we miss the simple Yuna, the Yuna with less make up and less drama with a simple dress, but we really need to see Yuna to compete skate again, we don’t want her to just be an exhibition.
