Yuna Kim wants to build an ice rink in her name.

Kim, who is appearing in SBS’s new show, ‘Yuna Kim’s Kiss & Cry’ as an MC and also as a mentor, is participating in the show to eventually build a ‘Yuna Kim Ice Rink’ in the future. 
 
“She is worried that the public interest for figure skating, that has just started to grow, will fade now that the World Championships are over. 
Yuna Kim wants this program to succeed because she thinks that it will help in the long run; her dream of building an ice rink of her own name,” said the producing staff of the show.

Kim had no choice but to train in poor facilities when she was younger and therefore she does not want for the future generation of Korean figure skaters to go through the same hardships that she had to go through. 

Kim’s dream is to build an ice rink that is large enough to host competitions, not just a small practice rink. 
The staff hinted  that participating in the show is one of the first steps of Kim’s project. 
She knows that keeping the public interested in figure skating is important and takes priority over raising money for the construction.
 
“It’s known that an ice rink costs about 3 billion won to build. 
Her  long term plan is to prepare funding for building the rink through various profitable projects. 
After that she wants to build an ice rink in her name and help nurture the next generation of Korean figure skaters,” said the staff.
 
SBS’s figure skating survival program ‘Yuna Kim’s Kiss & Cry’, will air on May 22. 
10 celebrities and 10 figure skaters will team up as pairs and compete against each other.
The final winning couple will skate in Kim’s ice show that will be held in August.
