“Being with Yuna as her choreographer was one of the best experiences of my life.”

All throughout the three-day ice show that brought her competitive career to a closure, Yuna Kim maintained a bright and cheerful smile on her face. But it wasn’t long before she eventually broke down in tears. It was at the words of her long time choreographer and good friend, David Wilson: “Being with Yuna as her choreographer was one of the best experiences of my life.”
 

On May 6, Kim successfully rounded up the last show of All That Skate 2014 at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena. After retiring from the competitive stage at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics in February, this ice show was where she bid farewell to all her fans in Korea.
 
After her debut on the senior stage 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. Hae-Jin Kim and So-Yeon Park, the two younger South Korean figure skaters who have been training under her wings, showed tears in having to watch their role model say good-bye, but the Queen maintained a glistening smile throughout the show.
 

But it was during the press conference after the last show when Kim finally erupted into the tears she had been holding back. After briefly stating her thoughts and impressions on the ice show, the microphone was handed over to David Wilson, her choreographer. “Working with Yuna as her choreographer was one of the best experiences of my life,” he said. “I think probably the best way to describe the way I feel [watching her farewell stage] is…it’s a little bit bitter sweet. I think any transition in life is always exciting but it’s also a little bit sad, too.”

Wilson’s words were filled with so much affection that Kim was no longer able to hold back her tears. Wilson consoled the tear-faced Queen by her side and added, “But I’m really, really proud of her. And I’m also proud of all the skaters who took part in this show. I’m so happy we all got to do this together. Watching her skate at this show with such composure and beauty and grace made me so, so proud.”
 

Reflecting back on his years spent together with Kim, Wilson said, “It was a very special time in my life. In my 22 years of working as a figure skating choreographer, there are two people I consider to be the most special to me. It’s my good friend Sébastien, who is my life-long friend, and my first client. And it’s Yuna. I want to encourage her and hug her and tell her how amazing she was.” He also added with a smile, “When Yuna left Toronto, I missed her so much that there was a time when I cried like a baby.”

 “My mother once told me this. She said that the reason she raised me and nurtured me was not to keep me by her side all her life, but to be able to send me off into the big world prepared. And that’s exactly how I feel about Yuna right now. I’m so excited to see how she would move forward in her life and what big things are waiting for her. I'm just so thankful for the special relationship I've been able to have with Yuna so far,” he said, sending a heart-felt message of encouragement to Kim who finally brought her career to a long-awaited closure.
