Ice queen Kim Yuna has updated on her life post figure-skating for magazine Allure Korea.

In the fashion pictorials, Kim Yuna displayed a more composed and natural poses differing from her time as a figure skater. In particular, the natural day light accentuates her unique feminine and down-to-earth charms.

During a follow up interview, she mentioned, “I still don’t know what I really want to do. Currently, I am attending a graduate school, looking after my juniors at Tae Reung, and enjoying time off for photo-shoots like today as well as roles as an honorary ambassador. I am refraining from new thoughts as of now. If I am diligent in the present, I hope new thoughts will come to me naturally? I am enjoying this time of letting my guard down.”

Earlier this year, Kim Yuna has garnered attention for rumours of reconciling with her former boy-friend and ice hockey player Kim Won Joong.

‘Figure Queen’ Skating Yuna Kim revealed new skating program for this coming Olympic season.
Earlier today, August 26, Yuna Kim’s agency All ‘That Sports’ announced her now skating programs: ‘Send in the Clowns’ for the short program and ‘Adios Nonino’ for the free skating program, both of which are the work of David Wilson, Kim’s choreographer who has worked with her for 7 years.
The song for Kim’s Short program ‘Send in the Clowns’ is composed by America’s great musical composer ‘Stephen Sondheim’ and is widely known as a title song for hit musical ‘A Little Night Music.’ The world is now focusing on how Yuna Kim will blend her movement to the song’s romantic, sad mood.
Yuna Kim chose tango song, ‘Adios Nonino’ for her free skating program. ‘Adios Nonino’ is a work of Asto Piazolla, master of Tango in Argentina. Since released in 1958, the song has been orchestrated in many different versions by composers from all around the world. The song is a tango song that delivers passion and sadness.
This is the second time that the 23-year-old skater shoes a tango song for competition program. Kim surprised the world as beautifully performing ‘El Tango De Roxanne’ on her senior debut stage; she was 16 back then.
During the interview, Yuna Kim explained why she chose those two songs. About her short program song ‘Send in the Clowns,’ she said, “The song is sung by a woman who misses her lover who left. At the first time I heard it, I wanted to perform with this song sometimes.”
“Free skating program song ‘Adios Nonino’ is a powerful tango song that is opposite to the short program song. It is very famous song and one of my favorites. It was the hardest program I’ve ever tried but I’m very satisfied with the result,” Kim added.
The Olympic champion also said, “This is my last competition program as a player, and I’m so happy that I chose the song that I’ve always wanted to do. I’ll try my best to show as great performance as fans are expecting from me.”
Meanwhile, Yuna Kim is now preparing for the new season and will be competing in 2014 Sochi Olympics and retire as a player.
