Kim Yu-na, the gold medalist in ladies' figure skating, is not entered at the Winter Asiad, as she is currently preparing for the world championships in Tokyo in March. But other gold medalists from Vancouver will be on hand to duplicate their Olympics success.

"It was a 'girl-talk' done right after the Short program at the Olympics.
It was an interesting talk between three writers on Slate, who don't really watch skating and it was kind of funny to hear people who don't really watch skating talk about it." ~from my friend
I haven't heard of it until a dear friend PMed it to me. (thanks dear!)
Personally, I think it was very interesting to hear it from their perspectives…and rather cute. Wonder if they have one for the long program? I hope you all enjoy!
Some things I love:
"Kim Yuna" (like how they say Kim first)
"Asian national showdown"
"I was completely into the whole Bond girl thing."
"Blowing the gun and the wink!" (love love this one…)
"She was kinda sexy and womanly as figure skaters go"
"Kim Yuna's ladyness kinda stood out in comparison."
"Kim Yuna seems appealing, glowing in my eyes, genuine feeling about her"
"Figure skating is about self control"
"No tragic mobility"
Smartphones, the World Cup soccer finals, social networking sites, Olympic figure skating champion Kim Yu-na and health products were the most popular items among Koreans over the past 10 years, a private think tank said Wednesday.
The five made the top 10 list out of 110 hit products between 2000 and last year compiled by Samsung Economic Research Institute based on a survey of experts and netizens.
Smartphones topped the list under the evaluation that it is a mobile platform with infinite potential. The World Cup took the second place for triggering a sports watching culture in Korea.
Third was Cyworld, a Korean version of Facebook. Social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter came in the fourth place and credit cards with numerous rewards and benefits were picked fifth.
The top 10 list also included Kim Yu-na, health products, car navigation systems, public transport payment services and the traditional Korean wine makgeolli.
