Is a 'Yuna Kim Movie' featuring Kim as Bond or Giselle a possibility?[OSEN] Hee-Sun Kim ㅣ 2014.05.07What if the signature programs of the now-retired "Queen Yuna" were reproduced on the big screen?On May 6, Yuna Kim successfully rounded up the last day of her ice show, ‘All That Skate 2014,’ held at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena in Seoul. After retiring from the competitive stage at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics in February, Kim bid farewell to all her fans in Korea at this ice show.After an explosive debut at the senior level in 2006, Kim went on to achieve a Grand Slam, winning the gold medals at the Olympics, World Championships, Four Continents, and the Grand Prix Final. This, along with her unsurpassed record of never finishing off the podium in every single competition in her entire career, made her the undeniable “Queen of Figure Skating.” With all of this now behind her, Kim walked away from competitive figure skating while a roar of applause rose from the crowd of more than 10,000 at the ice show.Now that Kim has retired, many are left feeling saddened by the fact that they will no longer be able to see Kim perform on the ice. All they can do to watch Kim performing on ice from now on is to replay her glorious past performances over and over again. But at the round-up press conference on the last day of the ice show, David Wilson, her long-time choreographer, came up with a surprisingly delightful idea for those saddened by Yuna Kim's retirement.Asked if he had any other pieces of music he wanted to recommend to Kim, Wilson replied, "Well, it's not really a piece, but I do have an idea in my head." He continued, "It's a dream of mine to produce a movie film where Yuna is re-enacting some of her signature programs on ice, like, as a Bond girl or Giselle." What Wilson envisions is a figure skating movie that would bring some of Kim's most applauded programs to life."<Carmen on Ice> is a film that turned a figure skating program into a movie. It was the very example that producing an innovative artwork of figure skating was more than possible, which is why I keep on dreaming of doing it and can never give up." Wilson said. "While we're at it, it'd be really cool if Stéphane Lambiel can be a part of this," he added with a chuckle.Dong-Hee Ku, the vice president of All That Sports, complied with Wilson's idea by saying "I was actually thinking about this but Wilson got to it before I did. I really do hope we can make this happen." Indeed, it doesn't seem all too impossible considering that Kim's rise to the "Queen of Figure Skating" from a country virtually unknown in the figure skating world is a movie-worthy story on its own.Of course, Kim herself has emphasized repeatedly that she still needs some time to think about her future plans: "I've been so busy preparing for the ice show that my life really hasn't changed much since retirement [at the Olympics]. [Now that it's all over] I need to first and foremost take some time off and think it through."It will be interesting to see if Wilson's brilliant plan can snatch a spot in her future plans as well.■ Translation ⓒ kindred, alouette*, 포승냥 / FEVERSKATING■ The Original ⓒ [OSEN] http://bit.ly/SvTiSM
