Absolute Beauty of Figure Skating, Yuna Kim!

Posted in Seoul Breeze with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 26, 2010 by Lydia

Hey, Yuna Kim, who is also called Yuna Queen in Korea, won the figure skating championship with most complete performance in the annals of figure skating history, few hours ago! I’m so proud of her not because of the fact that she’s a Korean or she’s beautiful, but because I know her desperate effort and her pressure. She really deserved the gold, right?

Though I don’t know much about the figure skating, I knew that her skating was absolutely beautiful and.. Oh my god! Her total score was 228.56 which is similar as male skater’s score! “I can’t believe this day is finally come for me.” Yuna said like that.

Get ready world! It’s Yuna’s world!

Does anybody know where the above Africa-like picture is?

It is Seoul (in 1950).
The year 1950 witnessed the outbreak of Korean War on that ground.

But can you believe that Korean economy has grown rapidly for the last three decades and now Korea is leading the IT, NT and BT industries as well?

Well, at that time, everybody said it is impossible.

But a miracle occured!

↓This video shows the present Seoul!

Unbelievable, right?

Actually, behind this amazing growth, there was a very unique culture among Koreans called 빨리 빨리(ppalli ppalli).

빨리 빨리 means “Chop-chop” or “Hurry up”.

Korean people can do anything with the almighty culture called 빨리 빨리, indeed. Burj dubai tower(The tallest building in the world), UAE South Korea nuclear deal .. etc.

And you can easily have a very interesting experience in Korea because all Korean people eat fast, walk fast, do their work fast. 🙂

Visit Korea in 2010!
