In the joy we see from Yu-na Kim, there must be something she has to bear such as private anguish, burden, and expectation and responsibility from the public.
Although she is currently already one of the most loved people and the majority of Korean know who she is, some people still remember her tough past moments that she practiced numerous times without a decent place and enough pairs of shoes so that she even had to wear one pair for a few years.
Please, feel free to enjoy a different style of Yu-na Kim created by my feeling and emotion.
During her performance, a scene that she spins having both of her hands on a tiptoe is designed and expressed.
While thinking of a bud blooming on friction between a skate blade and ice...
Silently staring at something on wide ice makes a lot of things to think of.
What does she think of or about before a performance….?
A skater preparing to bloom snowflakes by herself on ice… and the snowflakes are coming out slowly and brightly around her.
The way that seems to be very slippery when it comes to our point of view might be a way that other skaters have already passed and it won't be easy to recarve my own way on the way.
Yu-na Kim, a skater who expresses softness in this harsh environment.
When I see her, my heart beats together.
