By lunaradmin - Jul 16, 2015      

Park So- Youn is following the footsteps of South Korea’s legendary former figure skater Yuna Kim who retired last year after Sochi Olympics. Park started ballet dancing at the age of 13 and has been on the national team since. After participating at competitions over the years, Park finally became national champion earlier this year. Yuna Kim has been helping her execute the routines and according to Kim, Park has good jump kills and triple combination is her biggest strength. Kim told CNN that she needs to be more confident. “She has a great bodyline and her own character of performing with grace and style, while her technical ability is safe,” said the figure skating manager for ISU.

“Kim Yuna was the best skater in the world, who could move people with her performance – that I really respect,” said Park. Under the ISU Judging System, Yuna Kim has broken world record 11 times in the free skating along with other countless accomplishments.
