Someone translated it in Korean on DC Yeona Gallery.
I'll translate some interesting parts.
A: Every coach has own styles, and skaters, too. If coach and skater's styles are well-matched, skater's ability will improve.
Brian rarely talks when I skate. He watches my skating quietly, and only points out my mistakes . So it's very easy to understand. I like this coaching style. He was a skater, so he can understand my feelings every moment like during practice, or before the competition. It's very important to me. We really have a good rapport. It's like a good combination.
Q: Jeff's choreographed your program before. Do you talk in English with other skaters like Jeff?
A: Umm...(Smiles) I'm not good at English, so I talk with Jeff just like this, ( smiling ) "Hi! How are you?" . So, I don't think it is a conversation in English.
Q: How about Mao Asada? ( Do you talk with her?)
A: Umm. I talk with her more than other skaters.
Q: And stature is almost same...
A: And same age ( Smiling )
Q: And any other similarities do you have?
A: We both are good at jumps , and train very hard.
Q: You and Mao have competed since Junior level. What do you think about having a good rival?
A: We've competed since we were young, and Mao is a good motivation to me. I think it's very good for us. There are many skaters who had very good results at Junior level, but couldn't get over Senior level. Mao and I have competed stimulating each other, so we could get over that situation. So, rivalry is good for us.
Q: Do you write training journal or private diary?
A: I always get diary note in summer, but the season just stars , and I become busy ....Hahaha... So, I don't finish my diary in the end.
Q: What is your favorite men's program?
A: There are so many skaters I like... Stephane Lambiel, Jeffrey Buttle, Daisuke Takahashi... They all have very good programs, and very attractive. Do I have to choose just one? ( Smiling )
Then, Johnny Weir's "Yunona I Avos", and Stephane Lambiel's "Poeta".
They have great techniques, and hearts in their programs. But I like many programs. Really.
