I am still enjoying all the photos, thank you all for the reports, photos and great snippets of actual encounter! I envy you guys and girls! And I agree, her back is perfect, just like every other side of her.

She looks stunning even after long flight. I just wished she can stay longer and enjoy some nice time in New York, but maybe next time. But, I have to tell you, I want her to bring her show to states, I'd buy and fly to see it!

Seriously, this woman better be doing a really good job at everything else that she's doing for Yuna because so far from what we've seen, she is the worst assistant EVER!!! How the heck could she let Yuna open the car door on her own in public!!!

Oh man, you are overdoing it... Yuna can open the car door.
But I agree that she is bad assistant. I have no idea why she is working there...

I know Yuna can open her own door, and I admire her for that. At first when I saw that photo I thought 'wow, she's such a humble girl, not putting up any star/celebrity attitude and standing there waiting for someone to open the door for her.'

Then when I thought about it again, really, she's at a public event, with her assistant/employee, all dressed up, and she's opening her own door? Come on, it's not a rule that she can't open her own door, but it's common etiquette that the assistant should open the door for her at least during public events. Mr. Gu who's probably at a higher position than this lady had the common sense to open the door for Yuna, yet this lady is just taking her time and letting Yuna take care of herself.

I don't think a guy should always be required to open a door for a women, but there are certain times when they should if it's at a formal event. Some times call for it, others don't. It' depends on the time and situation/event.

Does anybody know what happened to the other Korean lady who was always with Yu-na before, specially during the Olympics? The one whom she'd often have a good laugh with and seemed to be friendly and casual with? The one who handed her her jacket, and was obviously in tears also, at the kiss and cry zone after Yu-na did her LP in Vancouver? :D I kinda liked her, coz she seemed to be always kidding around and natural with Yu-na, and they seemed to be very familiar and comfortable with each other already.. I like her better than the new assistant she is with now, who is always looking so formal and business-like, not showing much emotion.. Anybody know what happened to that lady, and whether she is still employed by Yu-na or not anymore? I noticed that at Worlds, she was with her new assistant already.. I thought it was only going to be temporary and that the other one was just on leave or something... Where is she? :lol:

Really? I don't know... So does that mean she won't be working with Yu-na anymore?.... :unsure:

The dress is insane... and she looks insanely beautiful in it! I feel all of these experiences could only add to the level of maturity in Yuna's skating should she decide to continue skating. Seriously, if just for one more season, I would love to see how she incorporates all that's happened to her in her skating.

According to someone I know who understands Korean and watches the Korean news occasionally, that nice lady is apparently on Yuna's publicity team.

I wish she was with Yuna at this event also, she and Yuna seem to have a good bond.

I can't understand how such a horrible translator has been provided for Yuna at recent events. I cringe every time she opens her mouth. She seems to have difficulty understanding questions in English, and it's catastrophic when she opens her mouth to speak English herself. Is she seriously earning money for being an impostor translator?

Sorry if that seems harsh :unsure: but really, there are so many others out there who could do a better job, and would probably do it for free.

I'd say the one who put that X failed. They should have put a nice mark like a pink circle rather than an ugly X. :unsure:

Same here. I'd like to see her for just one more season.

btw, I thought it was kinda smart of Yuna to fly right back after the party (probably she didn't have a choice though), cuz if she had stayed a day or two more in NY, she might have been under the jet-leg again upon the arrival in Korea. It's so exhausting then.

I totally agree.. I mean, it's only befitting to have someone translate for you who is capable to correctly express what you're trying to say, without sounding so vague and curt which is somehow what happened during the interview at Worlds, and who knows where else.. Yu-na is a global public figure now and she definitely needs someone who can speak for her more appropriately.. Nothing personal, it's just that it seems she is lacking the capabilities to efficiently perform this particular function.

So if that other lady is in her publicity team, will that mean we won't be seeing her with Yu-na anymore? Is the team she was connected with employed by IB sports?

I can still feel little shyness and awkwardness from her in the pics, and I absolutely love it. :unsure:

Yes, that's part of her magic.. So poised and seemingly oozing with confidence one moment, then child-like and a little bit awkward, and even boyish, the next.. Her shyness just goes to show though how she definitely is not an air-head or someone with a narcissistic ego who always thinks too highly of themselves.. She is just pure beauty and magic.... :rofl2:

Yu-Na Kim honored by Time Magazine as one of world's most influential people

SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT / Sports Features Communications

NEW YORK, May 5: Superstar figure skater Yu-na Kim was celebrated by Time Magazine as one of the 100 World's Most Influential People yesterday at the Time Warner Center in New York City.

The Korean athlete crossed the red carpet with other luminaries such as Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who topped the 'leaders' list and singer Lady Gaga, cited as the most influential artist.

Kim inspired many people around the world for her composure under pressure on the Vancouver ice to take the gold in the figure skating competition. A fervent supporter of the PyeongChang 2018 winter Olympics bid she looks to promote her sport as well as her country abroad.

Quintessentially classic and elegant dressed in a black evening dress and silver heels in place of her ice skates she noted, "I'm very grateful to be here at my young age. It's my first time in New York, and I'm delighted that I came here for a good reason. It's such an honor to be invited to a gathering of the world’s greatest people, and it will make a wonderful memory."
